I love the way he draws cute girls and I find his storis to be heartgripping, but I'm still butthurt about Oyasumi Punpun. Also didn't finish the tankoubon A Girl by the Sea is in yet, due to backlog syndrome.

Still nice to see more of her works.

Nah, he draws plenty of heartwarming stuff, too, and I can't think of a story of his that applies to your latter claim. Feel free to elaborate by providing some examples, though.
For example, the last story of the first volume of Before the End and Dawn of A New World.

Is it really that hard to just read a story without getting overly emotional? I mean, people seem to hate PunPun because it "depresses" them. I get it, the characters go through shit. tragedy after tragedy. In the end, the story does have an emotional impact on the reader, but to hate on it just because a character isn't the way you want them to be (not depressing) is completely ridiculous. It's like hating any action film or book, let's say GOT, just because too many characters die. Or because nothing seems to go the way it should. Just read the story and take it for what it is and what it entails. You don't have to like it, but that doesn't automatically make it bad. People like Asano's stories. You don't, and that's that. They usually are not bad by any means.

If you were referring to >>135111706, too, then I would like to highlight that by "butthurt about Oyasumi Punpun" I didn't mean that I dislike it.

I like it very much, actually, and am surprised to see a few people ITT being so negative about Asano Inio's works, especially if you contrast the reception with how popular he was during the Oyasumi Punpun live translation threads on /a/, all those years.

Monster girl thanks Prez because she's authentic and Prez breaks down because she was alone, wrong and the only person by her side is the monster she detested. It can be argued that Prez overreacted though.
>>
>>135113173
>>135113186
The story is just allegory for how people, often in an attempt to uplift themselves will treat someone different or lesser than them superficially well when it's still a form of alienation. When Recchan shows a difference from them that they finally fail to comprehend, their mask falls apart and they return to the expected attitude.

Nakajima's role and the ending is about how approaching differences honestly is a better attitude towards them. The reason Recchan thanks her is because Nakajima is the only character to face her as a person by giving her personality as something she dislikes, and Nakajima cries because she's the only character who can sympathize with Recchan as a someone instead of a something.

Believe me, as someone who's been in that position before, it gets tiring to be treated with over the top fake niceness when you know they're not being sincere. It's like electing the girl with downs syndrome prom queen. Yea, you're being nice but it's not honest.

Dead scanlation for now until the next volume is released (march, iirc), but otherwise yes. It's more easy to get into than Punpun

You have the ability to read into the themes of a story, and yet only take those themes at face value. You're the type of person who sees a woman getting hurt in a work of fiction and complains about it regardless of context or message. You are no man I respect.

I find the dishonesty doesn't frustrate me about situations like this, but more the weakness of it. At the risk of getting /pol/, which was an inevitability when this thread was made avoiding issues the way the classmates do in the story doesn't move things anywhere. It can be more harmful than hate because it avoids bringing anything up that can be worked on.

I think the important thing to take away from this story isn't the discrimination against Recchan, because if it were then Asano would have left it at that, but that we're being encouraged to actually face issues straight.

That was a nice story about token "special kids," whether due to race, background, disability, etc.

I don't know about the other anons in this thread, but I've had a lot of classes in my public school days with some mentally/physically disabled kid, and it was kind of depressing to see how for all the special attention they got from classmates, none of them had a genuine friend.

I agree that it's silly to hate punpun because it's sad, but getting overly emotional isn't a bad thing - in fact, I'd argue that having such a sentimental attachment to drawings with letters on them, and having this sentimental attachment shared by many, means that Asano accomplished tremendously.

It's just that most people read to escape reality, not get sucked back into them.
>>
>>135114704
I honestly don't know how to word it, but yeah getting emotional isn't bad. It's just the way that some people react that gives them no credibility when judging a work. Like, oh i had to drop punpun because it was making me too depressed. That type of thinking is what annoys the shit out of me. And the people that react that way are usually the ones that straight up say that the series is bad. Like the first guy I pointed to >>135112794
>>
>>135114601
I moved around often as a kid, and I remember going to a school once in a community that hadn't progressed far enough that racism was done with. It wasn't a rough neighbourhood so we didn't get anything over the top but man, people really made a point about race over there. I remember early on in the year that kids with learning issues or even behaviour issues would get quickly moved into the special classrooms, then removed from the school if things got too bad so they could be sent somewhere worse. The students pretty much witch-hunted for gay kids, but the teacher's were even worse in hindsight.

The school I went to immediate after that was super liberal and gave out awards to literally retarded kids for being brave. I remember that we had a club dedicated to making homosexuals feel better about coming out, but as far as I could tell it was populated entirely by white girls and guys who wanted to sleep with them.
When one effeminate boy joined once, there were rumours around the admittedly small school that he was going to come out and everyone was super nice to him about it and trying to support him, acting like they were friends.
Turned out he wasn't gay, just kind of quiet. Wasn't my friend but I got to know him for a little bit when we shared a class and he was super annoyed about the rumours he was gay.
>>
>>135113100
I hope they fucked after that

From what I gather, the work makes the point that inclusion shouldn't simply be positive affirmation. That, however, still leaves open the question as to what it SHOULD entail.
Should it, for example, simply be understood as the absence of exclusion? Then you'd have to ask where exclusion starts.

>>135114866
>Turned out he wasn't gay, just kind of quiet.
I need a harder drink for that. Can be uncomfortable being the "quiet guy".
