I don't think you're supposed to like punpun (the character) or at least not in the last parts of the manga

@ark1us I don't like Punpun either, and you'll find no SAO in my lists. I'm not sure what people see in this misery porn with meninist vibes. Sure, the execution was good; but the whole story was just trying so hard to make me feel bad with it's over-the-top drama and edgy selfish characters that I stopped caring long before the MCs stopped suffering.
