** Punpun himself is this among a huge part of the fandom due to him being in a constant state of self-loathing and misery. It also doesn't help that he becomes more unsympathetic later on, depending on who you ask.



* DiabolusExMachina: Some people that a number of he twists in volumes 12 and 13 pertaining to Punpun and Aiko are this.

* TrappedByMountainLions: Many people who read the story and who otherwise have very positive opinions frequently criticize the Pegasus Cult subplot as being confusing and question what point it serves in the story, when they're primarily interested in Punpun's life and CharacterDevelopment. In an interview Asano later clarified that Pegasus and his followers actually WERE battling evil and saving the world, but many readers didn't find this to be sufficiently clear in the manga and still find it to be the weakest part of the manga.

** The ending leaves itself open for interpretation. Is it a happy ending because [[spoiler:Punpun seems to be going down a path of normal and sanity now]], or is [[spoiler:he just a hollow shell who keeps marching on because he isn't even strong enough to kill himself]]? WordofGod says the latter is closer to what he intended.

* {{NightmareFuel}}: The sex scene in chapter 36 is... rather ''disturbing'' to look at. What the characters are saying doesn't do much to lighten it up, either.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: The manga is frequently held in high regard by people who read it, considering it a masterfully done ComingofAgeStory, and it is frequently praised for its lifelike characters, strong art, and skillful visual storytelling. It's also relentlessly dark, cynical, and sometimes even nihilistic.

* BaseBreaker: Aiko. A lot of people dislike her for screwing up Punpun, and being the catalyst for a lot of his poor decisions and darker moments, even if she didn't want that to happen. However, some find her an incredibly tragic {{Woobie}} due to her past.

** In a post-series interview, Asano admitted that he had a somewhat antagonistic relationship with the readers, and that sales took a sharp decline every time something really dark or upsetting happened. He's said this is why he took a lighter and less nihilistic approach (at least by ''Punpun'' standards) in his later work.

* MagnumOpus: For Creator/InioAsano. ''Manga/{{Solanin}}'' is also acclaimed, but ''Punpun'' seems to be more popular, and is a more "epic" and ambitious story, being the longest of Asano's works. Even Viz has referred to it as "Inio Asano's masterpiece" in their press release announcing they were going to release it overseas.
