    I’m reading Oyasumi Punpun for the first time. I’ve been putting it off for awhile because I haven’t been in the mood for something dark, but I’m absolutely blown away. It definitely deserves all the praise it gets. I’ve read other works by Inio Asano like Solanin, Girl on the Shore, and more recently Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction, and I really just love the constant underlying melancholy that’s present throughout all of them. Punpun takes that melancholy and amplifies it to the point where some parts are downright painful to read, but the art is beautiful, the characters are interesting, and I think it’s such an intelligent series. I’m currently on chapter 60 and hope to finish it pretty soon, though sometimes I feel like I need to stop and read or watch something a bit lighter ;)

    I definitely agree with all the hype - Punpun is a fantastic series so far and I definitely recommend it to people who are fans of darker, existential stories.

    I used to use a mixture of Crunchyroll and Netflix, but recently I started torrenting. I was never really satisfied with Crunchyroll's service and selection, and I wasn't pleased with how some of the Netflix releases (e.g. Violet Evergarden) were really delayed in the US. I try to buy blu-rays when an anime stands out, but I feel like between the fansubbers and the selection, the experience is better.
