I had a junk of text prepared for this, but yeah.

Those last chapters were like finding something I hadn't looked at in all my life.

This is the best manga I have ever read. 
 
 
Also, I have a question for the ending...

To give some sort of answer, I believe that PunPun's character design is supposed to be a symbolic reflection of his inner self, and his reversion to his former state is indicative of a return to a happier state in his life. PunPun is more often than not drawn in his bird form as he is in a positive state, and his character design warps and darkens as his inner mentality does the same. 
He doesn't have the same innocence or ignorant outlook on life as he did before, but now he is able to accept both the faults and rights of himself and reality. His acceptance (instigated by his climatic meeting with girl Asano Inio) allows him to once again, not be so cynical about the world and to be able to live life positively.

Good Vibrations will be the last thing you can expect from this manga

EVERYONE EVERYONe. BIG NEWS: https://twitter.com/VIZMedia/status/624659365123985409 IT'S BEING LOCALIZED. BY VIZ. YESSSS

Piece of advice: Read something cute/funny after this. You will need it. For example Yotsuba.

 

And.. if you didn't start reading already: Don't rush it. It's a really bad idea if it's Punpun we are talking about.

 

As for me: Started it back in 2010 and it has been my favorite piece of manga work ever since.

One of the best stories I have ever read. (Reason why can be seen in the comments below.) Find it kind of funny though that this is labeled as comedy. Someone must have a really dark sense I humour.
Why?! I can't handle these emotions!!! I feel so broken... Why that person?!

This is a personal review, I just feel motivated to do it (sorry bad grammar, english not native language):

Ow.

Damn.

I feel like I've been to the edge of the universe and now I'm permanently stuck in another dimension after reading.

But I want to tell the world what the edge of the universe looks like, and it's beautiful.

So beautiful that my heart is broken.

Asano Inio, you've broken my heart with your manga. Thank you and Good Vibrations.

could someone spoil the story for me?

Damn my wandering eyes, just scrolled down a bit and read this plot spoiler. Anyone have a mind erasing machine?

Good vibes!

Oyasumi Punpun is a story I'd wholeheartedly recommend if you're into (or looking for) depressing stuff. What stood out to me in particular is the symbolism and use of repetition.

 

Also, if you haven't read it yet: stop reading the comments right away as there's major spoilers down under.

That was the ride of a lifetime.

reading this until the end while listening to song such as jishou mushoku, tawagoto speaker, somehow give it much more feels than it already had :')

 

just finished read this series because my junior recommend it, and it was a nice ride :')

I keep thinking about reading this, but I... I... I just can't get past the fear! I feel things deeply so... ... ... Yyeah, once again, gonna skip it. Once again, just for now.

Never seen a more insightful portrayal of childhood depression in any media ever than is depicted here.

The old adage is that dying is easy, living is hard. 

 

Personally, I really wanted to punch Punpun in the head. 

i usually read funny and light themed mangas but after i finished this one.. Darn! now this is one manga i'll never forget.. a very big slice of life.. no, a big chunk of life, really. now i can say i'm not the only one who worries about the fate of mankind.

 

kudos to the author and to the ones who made the effort to translate them

 

good night..
