"Punpun was going to study hard and get into the Tokyo University science department... and then he'd join an underground organization devoted to studying nuclear power... Then he'd destroy the world. As if— that's a big lie...!"Ehh, I think this series is really gritty, depressing, and shows the real scope of morality and emotions that humans have. Sometimes we're self-serving, grieving, terribly jealous, etc.

Punpun is going through a lot. For one point, he wants to hate a popular guy but realizes he's a decent guy, so Punpun is between hating him for stealing the object of his affection and liking him. His conflicts with growing up and his family are interesting (and definitely relatable to some).
Seki and the happy-go-lucky dude are there also. Their friendship(?) is really sweet. Seki is still affected by the events of volume one. That's cool and all, but this volume focuses a lot on Punpun's uncle.

What a hot-behind mess. First, this dude (the uncle) is lacking in social grace and tells the first woman who has shown romantic interest in years like "just so you know I for real, for real was jacking off to the thought of you before our date... just so you know. "DUDE! WHAT!?! The lady calls him out and asks him why he's trying to purposefully turn her off from him. And he tells her his RAW story. It involves an abused high school girl, and it just gets really sleazy from there. The sex scenes are really blunt. The uncle is also dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts as well.

Anyway, I think literature buffs, art-porn lovers, and people who see the beauty in the ugly will really like this series. It is mostly realistic (High-school girl's backstory was some next-level stuff [not saying this has never happened but it was ramped up to 10]).

But I don't plan to continue reading. It's not for me ( )
