reading punpun made me realize that even that which I loved, drew energy from, and hoped to be saved by, was just escapism in the end too

and that there's nothing wrong with that but there's time and place for escapism and by extension love

This realisation really helped me get my life fixed, you have no idea.
Anyway, Bokurano was much sadder.

I felt pretty empty after White Album 2. Not because I was particularly awed by it, but because I really wanted more cute Touma and I know I won't get more because the VNs will never be translated and I won't know enough Japanese to read it untranslated at the rate that I'm learning until years from now, if I even manage to learn it.

Punpun is the only manga to make me cry. I mean, I cried over Usagi Drop, but it was more while watching an AMV after I finished the manga. And that was only because it hurt me on an emotional level.

With Punpun, it was difficult to describe. It was like after all the horrible things that happened, after all the emptiness and pain of life, after all the loss, he could still live a life filled with people he loved. There was still all that beauty in the world. It really got to me. I don't care what Asano said. I think Punpun had a happy ending, and it just depends on what kind of person you currently are. For Asano and pre-ending Punpun, it would be a bad ending, but for post-ending Punpun, it would be a good ending.

After going through that ending years ago, i pussy out midway every time i get the feeling that i need to re-read it.
>>
I think it's that Punpun was so painfully relatable in his twisted thoughts about himself, the people around him and life. It's the kind of thing depression will whisper to you over and over, echoing the things you heard and learned as a kid. In the end, I think the hardest thing was feeling like that kind a "happy" ending was unrealistic, that there would always be a struggle for sanity, even if you dodged the worst ending a while ago. Like the window where you might've made a huge mistake (like murder) is passed.
>>
>>119467479
I personally loved the ending, it didn't feel like an asspull and I could feel the manga slowly leading up to that point. It didnt take my off guard at all and was more like a gradual buildup and collapse of depressing nihilistism.

I always assumed he hung himself after a year when he couldn't remember Aiko anymore

It's not like he learned to live for Sachi or anything, he just passively let's her point and steer him while he's still mourning

>>119465517
Thats by Bokurano's author, isn't it? Or the art is the same.
>>
>>119468007
It is, I personally enjoyed NaruTaru a lot more though.
>>
>>119468061
I'll find out soon. Would you recommend his other works as well? I might as well start a marathon, considering I had this urge to read Bokurano a few days ago.

Jun's battle is truly a piece of art.
>>
>>119467877
Maybe that's what I find depressing, that even after clawing your way back up from all that, the best you get is having avoided disaster and you glide along letting the wind (and the people around you) carry you. There's something vaguely taoist about it, but I guess it's tougher to have that feel like a win.

Tsumi to Batsu (Crime and Punishment). I can't read it all in one shot. It takes me a couple days at least to build up enough tolerance to keep reading, and then I burn through 20+ chapters.
>>
>>119468180

>the best you get is having avoided disaster and you glide along letting the wind (and the people around you) carry you

While dying with Aiko would have been the best ending for Punpun, what you described is being rescued by someone which is not for Punpun but most wouldn't consider it a bad thing after clawing themselves back up by themselves alone giving them purpose and validation
I disagree on it being Taoist, there's nothing serene about being hollowed out by loss and turning completely numb, I do see what you're getting at though it's not a win it's a consolation prize or participation trophy
>>
>>119468896
Yeah, I think you're hitting at why it didn't feel quite right to see it as serene in any way. No one imagines you'll bounce back from all that to be the most successful man in history, I suppose, but I'd like to think you'd want more than what Punpun got and more importantly, that you might actually be able to get it.
>>
Texhnolyze is likely the bleakest show I've watched but in a brutal setting like that with no hope of a happy ending it also becomes a bit harder to care for the characters. Even without being spoiled you can already guess nothing good will happen to any of them, it's kind of too extreme.
Not to repeat what has already been said, but Punpun was the only /a/-related thing to have made me cry, even just rereading this part still does it.
>>
>>119469056
>but I'd like to think you'd want more than what Punpun got and more importantly

But that's the thing, he no longer wants more or anything he's numb to his own feelings since he lost the only thing he ever wanted

>that you might actually be able to get it.

You mean happiness or ?
>>
>>119469378
happiness, passion, fulfillment. Not that any of those things were especially good to him before.
