His hair is terrible, but his manga is mostly good.

Why does /a/ never talk about his work?
>>
>>137294467
How does a mangaka find time to dye their hair?

>>137294467
It's funny that he looks faggy as hell and yet he's married to a woman.

Lurk more or fuck off.

We talk about Punpun all the time but his other works never really get discussed a lot in depth

Did Punpun take Aiko's V-Card or was she just on her period?

I'm enjoying Dedede more than Punpun desu.

Actually my least favorite he's done mostly because I dislike stories about a band trying to make it.
>>
>>137294530
It's called "herbivore guy" in Japanese standard, and it happens when otaku guy starts to be interested in 3d women. Not a few number of Japanese women love herbivore guys (it is not even a meme) but I think he just failed to be alpha.
>>
>>137295161
To this day, I don't get what was the point of that boy dying such a stupid death. The story was focused more in him and his band than the girl, made no sense. I thought Asano was going to do the "they mature together" route, but no, let's fucking kill this kid for no reason, besides drama.

I wonder if they have some kind of japanese r9k where they bitch about it.

You heard wrong as explained a number of times doofus.

>>137295063
That's not very funny.

>>137295337
What? I thought herbivore men rejected romance in favor of pursuing hobbies and friendship. They're associated with a rejection of traditional masculine values.

>>137295433
he takes the pictures, monochromes them, over exposes them, then redraws in details

>>137295410

I think it was just to show the two possible outcomes when you face disillusionment - you can suck it up and do something unglamorous and unsatisfying to live, or give up and kill yourself
>>
>>137295633
He doesn't know shit
>>
>>137295617
Just a sarcastic response to OP's claim that we never talk about his manga. Seriously, he's one of the few seinen mangaka that a good chunk of /a/ actually knows.

Are you going to buy the official english translation version of PunPun, Hox?
>>
>>137295757
No, I already have the Japanese tankoban so I don't see much of a point. I do recommend others to go and buy it though, since my early translations were pretty rough and sloppy.

To be fair, most asian men look like girls.
Millennia of pedomorphic selection will do that to a race.
>>
>>137295633
Since "Herbivore guy" became more than a meme word in Japan, now it contains both negative meaning and positive meaning depends on context.
Some people indicates faggots who pretend asexual but are secretly interested in girls (especially in sexual way). Some people think they are cool guys who reject traditional value and have skill to befriend with girls.

They don't have to be otaku. You want carnivores? just get your ass down to Osaka and get laid with those yankee idiots.

most of it is preachy shit targeted at millenials.

Personally I think the way he does backgrounds is smart and its not like he is tracing off of someone elses photos, he goes and takes the pics himself, so it is still his work.

Still think his stuff is just preachy. Demons dededededede destruction has been interesting at least

Saw it in Waterstones (UK book chain), which was a big surprise given the contents, they have it shrinkwrapped so the clerks can tell you're buying porn.

High exposure of anime on TV between late 80s and early 90s.
It's great to have a lot of choice, most of Asano's manga are available, even though they don't sell.

Holy newfag. Lurk the fuck more.

>>137304150
I can access it right now, I guess they don't block it anymore. 2D loli H is still banned, but only if it's considered as pornography, and I doubt that the girl by the sea would be.
>>
>>137304290
I can still imagine the conversation between Vertical's marketing department and Waterstones' buyers, though:
>Vertical: Yo, want this cool manga for the cool kids?
>Buyer: Maybe, what's it about?
>Vertical: Oh, you know, the usual angsty teen shit
>Buyer: OK, I'll take 1K copies
6 months later:
>Buyer: JEEZUS, somebody shrinkwrap that shit before it goes on the shelves. Now where's my tissues?
>>

Asano a cute. Cute!

I am not into music, rock bands, or any of that but I love Solanin. Are his other works similar in style as well? I have not read his other works.

Just finished reading this and I kinda want to think I understood what the fuck happened but I know im missing some details. Nice read though. I went back and read the prologue again and was able to pick up and connect some things in the end.
