In the story, Punpun is an ordinary young boy whose age of innocence has reached its end after his father is arrested for spousal abuse. With his uncle looking after him Punpun grows into adulthood facing a series of events which change him, for better or worse, forcing him to contemplate just what it means to be an adult.
Asano ended the series in Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in November, and Shogakukan published the series in 13 compiled volumes. The manga received a Jury Recommendation at the 13th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2009.
Viz Media also announced that it will publish Takeshi Obata's art book Blanc et Noir in 2016. The book will get just one printing in hardcover.
The Japanese version shipped in Japan in 2006. Obata drew the art for Death Note and Hikaru no Go. Since putting out the art book he has provided art for Ral Ω Grad, Bakuman., All You Need Is Kill, and Gakkyu Hotei: School Judgment.
