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 finally has a plan.
But it gets shattered.
He wants the world to shatter too.
And it does.
How can he live with himself?
Maybe you just need to find a different life, Punpun.
