Art is something to live for. In the world of Inio Asano, life is never-ending suffering, and the things we pursue are what make it worth living. This comes through during the concerts in Ozanari-kun, where music fans from all generations scream "I'm so happy to be alive!"

The characters in this story constantly face miseries, and yet it's their work that makes other people face their miseries. As small a thing as one's favorite band getting back together can justify an entire troubled existence.

Ozanari-kun is a rare manga that utilizes color. Not full color drawings, but tints akin to playing Pokemon Red on a Game ...

At the moment, only 307 people on MAL have read Ozanari-kun and 58 are reading it right now.

And that's a shame, because Ozanari-kun is a hidden gem.

What's most jarring, at first glance, is the art style.
The deranged Osomatsu-kun-esque character designs, which Asano Inio uses for joke characters in some of his other manga, are used here for every single character, and coupled with the often surreal backgrounds, they don't exactly make this manga accessible to people who aren't used to this sort of thing.
I, personally, love it, though. The same story could've been told with "normal" art, but that would just lessen the impact ...
