Synopsis

Punpun Onodera is a normal 11-year-old boy living in Japan. Hopelessly idealistic and romantic, Punpun begins to see his life take a subtle—though nonetheless startling—turn to the adult when he meets the new girl in his class, Aiko Tanaka. It is then that the quiet boy learns just how fickle maintaining a relationship can be, and the surmounting difficulties of transitioning from a naïve boyhood to a convoluted adulthood. When his father assaults his mother one night, Punpun realizes another thing: those whom he looked up to were not as impressive as he once thought.

As his problems increase, Punpun's once shy demeanor turns into voluntary reclusiveness. Rather than curing him of his problems and conflicting emotions, this merely intensifies them, sending him down the dark path of maturity in this grim coming-of-age saga.

Apr 10, 2024
"Oyasumi Punpun," or as I like to call it, "Goodnight, Punpun: An Uplifting Tale of Sunshine and Rainbows," takes the concept of a coming-of-age story and decides that what it really needs is a healthy dose of existential dread, just for flavor. Picture this: a young bird (not an actual bird, but stick with me) named Punpun navigates through the joys of adolescence, love, and finding oneself, except someone forgot to include the 'joys' part and instead substituted a cocktail of life's hardest challenges.

Our protagonist, Punpun, is depicted as a simple, almost ghost-like figure, allowing readers to project themselves onto him. It's like the author ...

Mixed Feelings
This manga is just about life. While reading, it was as if I experienced all the feelings that Punpun experienced. A manga about the best time in life – childhood, about adolescence and about how difficult adult life is. From elementary school, we all begin to be interested in different things. We begin to experience envy, jealousy, the urges during adolescence. We fall in love for the first time. Problems in the family and at school. About our goals. This manga has it all. Like while you're reading it, you just want to say "same, punpun".
So, I highly recommend this manga for introvert people that ...
Mar 2, 2024
This manga initially entrances readers with its captivating art style, promising a journey into the depths of human emotion and experience. However, as the story unfolds, it becomes increasingly apparent that its visual allure is not matched by its narrative depth.

The plot meanders aimlessly, lacking a clear sense of direction or purpose. Scenes stretch on for pages without significant progression, leaving readers feeling as though they are trapped in a narrative quagmire with no end in sight. Characters are introduced and promptly forgotten, their potential for growth and impact on the story left unexplored. The protagonist, in particular, dominates the narrative to the point of ...
