It looks like people can't appreciate Asano's works just because "they don't get it" or they're only interested in poorly written stories and big boobs. Just a little reminder; his works are intended for mature audience.

@kanedasho you shouldn't judge all of his works if you have read Nijigahara Holograph only. try some others – Oyasumi Punpun; Solanin; Umibe no Onnanoko – before saying that
