Win a Nobel Prize and save the worldHe wants to go far away with his t. This is the first big omnibus collection of Asano s tale of a little chicken like creature Punpun his dysfunctional family friends and his crush on a girl This is basically a coming of age story and the tone of it is much like his also accomplished Solanin somewhat subdued but with fantasymagical realism thrown in It s funny and sweet for the most part I might have liked it had I not had Asano s amazing and much darker Nijigahara Holograph to compare it to but this guy can draw The art in this one is better than the story though this one is accessible and deliberately coherent considering its younger audience YA than Nijigahara Holograph

Meet Punpun Punyama He’s an average kid in an average townHe wants to. I actually know little to nothing about manga other than having read Ito s Uzumaki and a few issues of Akira back in the day But just over a year ago I came across an online article proclaiming Inio Asano s Nijigahara Holograph one of the ten best graphic novels of 2014 comparing the sinister dreamlike atmosphere to a David Lynch film So of course I immediately bought and read it and was totally enveloped the entire time It wasn t just one of the best graphic novels I d ever read it was one of the best and most powerful pieces of storytelling I d ever experienced in any medium I immediately snatched up everything else by Asano that was available in English which wasn t much and while I enjoyed them mostly they were normal slice of life love and heartbreak type stuff Which is fine but I really missed the weirdness of Nijigahara Punpun seemed right up my alley a mixture of slice of life and the bizarre but it was still only available in Japanese After searching for any online fan made translations to no avail then briefly considering learning Japanese I decided to wait til it was made available in EnglishNow that it s here I can say it was definitely worth the wait The artwork is absolutely stunning and while the story didn t grab me uite as much as Nijigahara it was still pretty damn absorbing and this is only the very beginning of an epic story spanning several years tracing Punpun s life from an adolescent to an adult This first volume follows Punpun s years in grade school or the Japanese euivalent of it dealing with his parents divorce succumbing to things like peer pressure and love and dreaming of one day colonizing distant planets as he thinks this will impress the new girl in town whom he loves He sees himself as an outsider not really belonging anywhere which I suppose is why he s drawn like a cartoonish bird while everyone and everything else is lifelike But it s not just a coming of age story as there are Murakami esue moments where unreality and reality collide such as when Punpun repeats a simple chant that his hip slacker uncle taught him for when he needs God to show up and help I won t tell you what God is like but it s pretty hilarious and tripped out We also see that one of his buddies has an entirely different God that appears for him And Punpun s thoughts and daydreams are pretty hallucinogenic as wellMost importantly Asano is a master at depicting the joys and triumphs as well as the anxieties and tragedies of growing up He is able to make the simplest most everyday accomplishments seem like a massive feat which is of course true when you re 9 or 10 and it was true for me while reading The weirdness that creeps in occasionally doesn t feel out of place at all in this otherwise pretty realistic sometimes gut wrenchingly realistic story It s a near perfect marriage of boy meets world type stories and otherworldly strangeness and I m already counting down the days until volume 2 becomes availableRecommended to pretty much everybody who s looking for a moving first class coming of age story As long as you don t mind a side of straight up weird to go along with it45 Starsor
