  4. On Oyasumi Punpun Posts…

    This marks the end of my posts about Oyasumi Punpun. I may have more posts in the future, but this is not guaranteed.

    I created this blog during a very tumultuous time in my life. Currently, I’m wrestling with some inner demons.

    As such, I understand if you would like to unfollow me.

    To quote my first post about the purpose of this blog:

    This is proof that I exist—that there was such a person to live and breathe. In the whirlwind of life, where work seems to dominate all else, this is a reminder that there are still things to laugh about, to enjoy, and to look forward to.

    Life is a bitch and then you die, but there are ways to make it slightly more pleasant.
