The dread of engaging with people or being adversely assessed by them is known as social anxiety. It may be severely debilitating, making it difficult for individuals who suffer from it to live happy lives. But social anxiety isn't only a problem in the real world; there's plenty of anime about it to watch.
March Comes In Like A Lion, for example, takes social anxiety seriously, showing the character's troubles with gravity and empathy. Others, such as Welcome to the NHK and My Roommate Is A Cat, combine humour and empathy, while others, such as the recently released Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, take a primarily comic approach to the subject. In some situations, the protagonist is plagued with a severe case of social anxiety that defies all efforts to alleviate it, while in others, it is simply remedied. Whether the series' major topic is social anxiety or it's only a significant feature,
