Description
After recently moving to Onomichi, Hiroshima, high school student Tasuku Kaname is thrown into despair at the possibility that he may have been outed for being gay. Convinced his life is over, his despair turns into shock when he sees a woman jump out of a window of a nearby house. Tasuku races to the house in a panic only to discover that it's a public meeting lounge owned by the woman he saw before. Tasuku comes face to face with the woman as she walks past him unharmed, but not before she implies that she had been watching him from afar. Confused, Tasuku follows her up to the top of a steep hill where she offers to briefly listen to what's on his mind. Although Tasuku doesn't go into too much detail, he later accepts her invitation to come to the lounge to meet others with similar troubles.

An extremely strong portrayal of homosexuality and gender identity. It's SUPER good.

For a lot of reasons, I really dig this series, but I am reluctant to explain in great detail WHY because part of the series' appeal for me was reading it and figuring things out. It's honestly smashing good and super enthralling. I wrote a fairly long review trying to explain why exactly I like it, but since I avoided what I consider to be "spoilers" it was tough. Anyway, I can say for certain if this is the sort of thing you like to read about, this manga is a MUST-read.

This manga is an incredible and rare beauty. It's not often you get to see manga featuring homosexual and LGBT themes represented in a non-fetishized way that actually looks into the struggles of identifying this way in JAPAN. It includes characters feelings looking at America and seeing the historical progress they have made recently, legalizing marriage and coming out of the darkness, the LGBT community gaining more acceptance. While America is not perfect, it just goes to show how trapped and frustrated the characters feel being Japanese and dealing with the pervasive lack of acceptance that exists throughout the country. I look forward to seeing more character development, coming to terms with their identity and how they have to navigate society as a result.

Also, the artwork is absolutely mesmerizing and very stylistic. I enjoy the uniqueness of each characters' faces and personality.

Best manga lgbt represetation you could find

After finishing the second volume, I can definitively say this manga is the best I know of in terms of good lgbt representation. It has excellent portrayals of queer characters and the second volume follows a kid who is trans, to some undecided degree, and is going through the difficult process of figuring out what kind of gender they want to be. It has discussions of gender vs sexuality and how they are not the same, it discusses non-binary genders, it talks about different types of sexualities/romantic affiliations, and more. And it all does so in the framework of a really good coming of age/romance story between the main character who is gay and his crush on a classmate.

Also, the art is gorgeous.

I can't recommend it enough!!
