5) Goodnight Punpun

Punpun’s bird-like appearance

Goodnight Punpun” is a dive into the human psyche, exploring the darkness, fragility, and complexities of life. At its core, the story revolves around Punpun Punyama, depicted as a bird-like caricature, juxtaposed against a hyper-realistic world. This choice of depiction is not just aesthetic, but also symbolic of Punpun’s detachment and alienation from the world around him. As we follow his journey from childhood to adulthood, the manga delves into themes of depression, trauma, the struggles of adolescence, familial issues, and the overarching search for purpose and identity. Relationships play a significant role in the narrative, showcasing both their destructive and healing powers. The intricacies of love, both romantic and familial, are dissected, often presenting the dual nature of these emotions: the ability to both heal and harm.

4) Vinland Saga

Vinland Saga’s Thorfinn

Thorfinn‘s journey of change has inspired many around the world. I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “I have no enemies” thrown around the internet recently, but what does it really mean? The phrase is first spoken by Thorfinn’s father Thors when Thorfinn was a child. The message Thors was trying to convey is that war, death and mindless killing is wrong and that humans should live a tranquil life of peace, hating nobody. The phrase has translated over to the real world, with many people being inspired by the words that Thors passed down to his son and striving to live a peaceful, hate-free life themselves.

Not only that, but this manga makes you revaluate how to treat the people around you, whether you know them or not.

One Piece has so many underlying themes beneath the main plot of pirates searching for treasure. The World Government in One Piece is terribly corrupt, many characters have tragic backstories which can be related to in different ways, and the series even touches on serious issues like slavery, racism and human experimentation. On a more cheerful note, One Piece’s protagonist Luffy is dedicated to his dream of freedom, something that many others in the real world are striving for too.

Honorable Mention: High School DXD

Rias Gremory

You might think this is a joke, but nope – deadly serious. So many people around the world stop and think about whether they’re doing enough to seek a romantic partner on a daily basis. Watching Issei with his harem of god knows how many women adds insult to injury, and if anything spurs them on to look for a partner themselves. If you don’t believe this, there’s plenty of pages on Reddit and similar sites where people tell their tale of how DXD has given them more confidence to get out there and find themselves a partner.
