Meet Punpun Punyama. He’s an average kid in an average town. He wants to win a Nobel Prize and save the world. He wants to go far away with his true love. He wants to find some porn. But Punpun’s life is about to unravel…
Well, this was dark…and I loved it. Shocking~ I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into with this one other than the fact that two of my best friends have read the entire series and highly recommended it. I knew it was going to be dark and quirky and it really lived up to that expectation. I’m definitely interested in continuing with this series! Time for volume 2!
