What are some good animes, mangas, VN's, films or even novels that deal with being a loner who has practically no friends, and very little social contact in general? I already know Watamote and Choku! and love them, and at a different level Saya No Uta also hit pretty close to home for me. I'm planning to watch Welcome to NHK.
What else is there?

You could try the movie psycho.

I dunno but it's hard to think of any media centered around a loner that doesn't end with them getting friends or some shit.

I was re-reading NHK ni Youkoso the other day and it struck me how contemporary it was, even though it was written in ~2001. Part of it is because he doesn't ever mention any specific series.

By the way, if you're going to read it I recommend the novel first. It's not particularly well-written, but the prose is still much more readable than typical light novels'. It's also more realistic in some parts. Between the manga and anime it's a toss-up but the latter is more popular. They're very different anyway.

There's also a list of games with hikikomori protagonists on VNDB (http://vndb.org/i720), but I'm pretty sure the only translated one worth giving a shot is Chaos;Head.

Been a while since I had the chance to post this.

Non-translated Japanese stuff is fine, I'll be reading the Japanese original regardless. I can also understand German, in case someone knows something good in that language that fits the bill.
I guess I'll check out Chaos;Head. I've seen it recommended a lot on the internet, although I had no idea that it features a social recluse.

I've been told this is good.
Sadly there is no translation available.

No Longer Human and Notes from the Underground.

Subarashiki Hibi.

Also, Chaos;Head's protagonist is pretty bad.

I'm waiting for the next patch since forever. I even donated to Moogy (yeah, really).
