Punpun is an ordinary young boy growing up in Japan whose age of innocence has reached its end after his father is arrested for spousal abuse and putting his mother in the hospital.

Oyasumi Punpun is one of the greatest coming of age stories told in any form of media. This story is a very relative tale of alienated youth riddled with heavy accuracy. The story is very well developed and is partially due to its long timeline spanning from Punpun's life in elementary school to his early 20's.

User Recommendations

Both of these seinen titles feature dark narratives involving adolescents and young adults. In Aku no Hana, it is prevalent from the start. In Oyasumi Punpun, the plot gradually takes a dark turn.
The two pieces are emotive in two particular ways: a coming-of-age realisation, and the development of relationships between friends. Both also feature great artwork and storytelling.
