Me-teru's Feelings (め～てるの気持ち Me-teru no Kimochi), aka Love Laughs at Locksmiths, is a manga by Hiroya Oku, best known for his creation of the Gantz series. It was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2006 to 2007.
The story concerns a common problem in Japan known as hikikomori, a problem of social reclusiveness.
Koizumi Shintarou is a 30-year-old who has been isolated in his room for 15 years. His father, whom he blames for his condition, brings him food and manga to read, and tries to encourage him to come out, without success.
When his father gets married to an extremely beautiful woman and then soon dies afterward from cancer, the hermit is left to deal with this younger woman he is very attracted to, living in his home, and taking care of him.
