A dark coming-of-age tale where slice-of-life slices back.
This is Punpun Onodera’s coming-of-age story. His parents’ marriage is falling apart. His dad goes to jail, and his mom goes to the hospital. He has to live with his loser uncle. He has a crush on a girl who lives in a weird cult. Punpun tries talking with God about his problems, but God is a jerk. Punpun keeps hoping things will get better, but they really, really don’t.
Punpun is on his own now.
His mom is dead and his dad is useless.
When he’s not working crappy part-time jobs, he spends most of his time on the floor of his room.
But buck up, Punpun! It’s only for the rest of your life, right?
