Follow TV Tropes
Since the ending of the anime is mostly similar to the ending of the novel (with some minor differences), I'm not sure applying the term gecko ending to the anime is really appropiate.
And didn't the anime either pre-date the manga or come out at the same time? In either case the anime isn't based off of the manga anyways. I don't think Gecko Ending applies either.
Seconded. I'm not sure but as I recall it the manga took more liberties than the anime did it not?
"reduced to a NEET, ...living as a parasite on the royalties from this book".
Did Tatsuhiro really say this? It's a bit of a strange sentiment. Sure, he might live a withdrawn life, but he actually worked for those royalties and thus can hardly call himself a parasite.
Should we add a Character Sheet to this page?

How well does it match the trope?
