asano is probably the greatest prodigy i've ever seen in manga. the only people who can really rival him in storytelling and art are industry veterans who have been working for over 2 decades.

he's a goddamn national treasure.

Great man! you did such a magnificent work, it became impossible to not take 10/10. Undoubtedly Oyasumi Punpun was one of the most well established and developed stories.

I read my fair share of manga and what I was say about Asano here is he's in his own league.

Oyasumi punpun is the most satisfying manga I've ever read.
