Real talk, is this good?
>>

I like it. The manga's surreal visual metaphors are pretty to look at and it features characters and perspectives that I otherwise wouldn't encounter. I think this manga is most of all meant to educate a Japanese audience rather than a western one.

It's a nice alternative to the millions of boring clishe BL. The characters all feel like real people and are quite sympathetic except one but that doesn't ruin the story. Sometimes it feels like a "diversity" is put where it doesn't belong and forced, overall it's really nice and somehow relaxing reading.

If something like Yuureitou and Wander Son got published, I don't see why this one shouldn't.

Manga in general offer amuch more diverse choices than Animu.

Hibana is a seinen magazine (the same magazine that runs Dorohedoro), so the target audience is presumably more mature, and would find the content of this story interesting.

"Tumblr" as a trend is defined by shoving diversity into things that otherwise don't make a point of it.

This is actually a story about gays, so it ain't Tumblr. The big question you gotta ask is whether or not something would still work if the cast were heteronormalized.

I really like the adult MtF trans dude. He's still a reliable older brother type but when they did the reveal on him, I thought to myself, "Oh, that makes a lot of sense."

The lesbian story really hit home, especially the part about her parents.

He looks so hateable on this page but like, I really can't find myself blaming him. Him and his father are both put off by these people but neither of them actually seem hateful and come off as genuinely apologetic when they realize they're saying something rude.

It's a really understandable ignorance. I was like that when I was his age, and I know it's wrong but I know exactly how it feels when you sit down and realize how inappropriate you were and how you hurt someone's feelings.

Eh, it's that's the worse you can think of, you had it easy.

I think the manga definitely address something people don't consider, how homosexuality is essentially invisible to people because they default everyone to straight, so they feel like they are talking about people on another planet. It does come a bit too preachy for westerns in some cases, but I'd imagine the average nips is less knowledgeable about this thing.

I do wonder how much the mangaka knows, given she's a woman. Unless she's lesbian, then again gay men are often the one more targeted and I can't speak for women.

The mangaka is actually agender. It's the same one as Nabari no Ou and Shonen Note. Both series had trans, gay, or non binary characters so it's not surprising.

>tumblrina shows their reading comprehension skill
They were clearly saying that the point is that it wouldn't work if you made the characters straight and hence isn't tumblrcore. Instead of immediately getting up in arms at even the slightest hint of something you might find an opportunity to start shit over, take a second to read what people write.
>>
>>156959635
Don't kid yourself, lack of basic reading comprehension and starting shit over the smallest thing is an internet staple.

And my favorite pastime.

Oh that makes sense. I thought the "to" was an abbreviation of a Japanese word.
>>
>>156956749
He's gotten too many scenes outside of interacting with Tasuku to just be the temporary straight asshole crush. My bet is he's extremely closeted judging by how contemplative and withdrawn he is at home around his homophobic father. His shitty moments could be a defense mechanism from what he hears at home. He's got his goldfish obsession which was the visual metaphor for the clowder in vol 2 as well.

The realistic route would be by the time he comes out Tasuku's feelings will have cooled down and they'll just become homo friends.
>>
>>156962340
Do you think the manga will end with Tasuku having no romantic partner?

It's not really a fujoshi story. Fujoshi stories generally have straight or ambiguous guys in intensely pandering situations without any payoff, or flanderized and retarded depictions of what fujos want gay men to be. Shimanami isn't anything like that.
There are real people who are gay, anon, they can exist in stories too.

I suppose it's 'wish fulfillment' in so far as the MC escapes from feeling suicidal, and makes some like-minded new friends, which is probably something plenty of people would wish for if they'd ever been in that situation.
