In volume 7,
I don't know why I keep reading it. I just hope something good will finally happen to punpun. The only good thing so far is that his aunt fucked him.
If there's only desperation in the end, I probably will try to use a knife to cut myself a bit. Watching blood coming out from my body always comfort me for a while.
It doesn't get better.
It gets much, much worse.
>The only good thing so far is that his aunt fucked him.
He was fucking raped
hey have you guys read Asano's new work Dead Dead Demon's Destruction?
It's about cute girls :33
>Exploits Punpun's lifestory for personal monetary gain
>Forces Punpun to raise another mans child
Could you be any more wrong
Punpun is read as PoonPoon, Puhn is not a sound in japanese.
You englishfags are really backwards.
No way dude.
but he was raped that part was even taken out of kiddie mangoo websites it took me three websites to finally find it and it was awful
>but punpun says how he doesnt even consider the kid his to the one glasses nigga
DUMBFUCK NUMBER 2 WHO SHOULD HAVE CALLED THE COPS INSTEAD OF ANSWERING THE DOOR
Finished the manga a few weeks ago.
I enjoyed it for the most part, but it kinda got a bit too melodramatic towards the very end. I was hoping for a "tighter" story with Punpun and Aiko.
Didn't really care for the cult stuff.
i finished it a year or so ago, is it me or was something other than being childhood friends, taken v-card, and both being mentally ill not enough for them to stick together as long as they did
He was Edmund Dantes
And he was my father...
And my mother...
He was me...and you. He was all of us
also i didnt even slightly get into the cult part in fact i was hoping for the faggot to die
They didn't care, they were both suicidal and the shock of what happened didn't help. Did the way they travelled a whole country and took a boat to a random island south of japan for no apparent reason bother you too? They didn't want to speak with anyone, they just wanted to run away from everything and go to a remote place with no one else where they'd either die together or live isolated from the world.
Well, they're idiots then.
its emotionally realistic portrait of troubled characters, if a bit (a lot) exaggerated
Just because you grew up friendless and out of touch with your feelings doesn't mean everyone did
>My face after finishing the first volume
Punpun is just fine today.
>My face after finishing the seventh volume
Punpun is just fine today.
>My face after finishing the tenth volume
Punpun is just fine today.
>My face after finishing the whole thing.
Punpun will be fine.
That way of thinking is sexist!
They were fleeing the police, "in love," and completely fucking crazy and done with society. Also, Aiko spent her entire life being abused by her mother and has major dependency issues. I thought the weakest element of that was the hold Aiko had on PunPun during the intervening ten years, because she'd come up infrequently but get treated like she was constantly on his mind, though I do get that having him actually thinking about her constantly would have interfered with everything else.
The cult stuff tied things together thematically, but it really suffered from being so independent plot-wise.
The author avatar's also crazy and is manipulating him to fulfill her own psychological needs, though. She's still best grill.
That was easily the best chunk of the manga.
As long as you don't progress to this thing.
It's weird, it seems that every publisher would publish the volumes if they could (Vertical, for one, although it wouldn't surprised me if others have tried but just haven't said so publicly) yet Viz are fucking sitting on it and aren't doing anything. I literally do not understand why they haven't licensed it, it's not a long series, it's insanely popular, and has the potential to be their biggest 'obscure' seller besides popular shounenshit. They've no connection with the fans, no ask.fm or tumblr so you can't ask them shit. Fuck Viz Media, yes I'm mad.
Just a guy who was represented as a bird.
Am I taking your post too literally?
I think it had more to do with the fact that she'd spent her entire life abused and depressed and buoyed by some wholly unhealthy obsession with her constructed Punpun, and now she had the real person, and she was still abused and still depressed, and she realized how badly they were fucked up.
>Bought the reprinted special edition volume 12 that came with the Aiko shirt
Obligatory reading after you read Punpun and discuss it for a while
There's still hope anon, volume 2 is arriving on February the 27th.
>Kitoh is writing about bikes
>Inio is writing about cute girls doing cute things
Is this real life?
> The world isn’t going to end soon; it’s already starting to end now. The question is how to live in an age where the whole world is spiraling down, down, down.
> I could always just make it all come falling down like that.
IT ALL RETURNS TO NOTHING
I'm just waiting for the series to eventually take an M. Night Shyamalan level twist
Noririn's been running for five years without bikes causing the apocalypse, so I'm inclined to believe these cynical mangaka types when they say they're trying some more lighthearted fare.
I don't trust Asano though, he has a tendency for these kind of things.
Only time will tell...
In one of the author interviews he mentioned that the point of the ending is that Pun's lost all free will. He isn't even able to properly mourning the loss of his loved one and is forced to continue living life. I feel like it's less a case of him being fine, more a case of him becoming fundamentally broken as a character.
>Asano said in the interview that they legitimately did save the world
