How McGruff and the Crying Indian Changed America yEd ghosts of the past that Mike s appearance has resurrected Kana theoung daughter is clearly damaged by her parents split and has abandonment issues the scenes where she turned from the door to confirm that her dad or Mike would be there when she got back from school were heartbreaking There are a lot of emotionally
CHARGED SCENES ALMOST TOO MANY I LITERALLY HAD TO scenes almost too many I literally had to the book down halfway through and resume the following day because it got to be too much Mike breaking down in front of Yaichi after getting drunk the closeted teen finding acceptance and strength after talking with Mike hell even Kana finding out what hugging was eah the Japanese are genuinely that physically distant even to their own kids Not that Yaichi is a bad father he s clearly a great dad who cares deeply about his kid but there s something undeniably cold about the lack of physical affection between Japanese parents and their children The West hasn t got it all figured out but it definitely has a thing or two it can teach Japan some traditions deserve to die Ultimately it s an uplifting and charming story of three likeable ordinary people who are profoundly troubled but work through their issues and find strength in each other It s sweet to see Kana and her dad though he d never admit it aloud learning about how benign and human homosexuality is and by extension the uninformed reader Most beautiful of all was Yaichi s transformation through asking himself some tough uestions about his beliefs His growing friendship with Mike was very moving who manages to turn Yaichi into a warmer person with a closer relationship to his daughter as well as finding solace for his loss through his new family You can tell Tagame usually draws adult gay manga with certain panels centred so
Acutely On Yaichi And Mike on Yaichi and Mike toned male physiues though of course given that this is an all ages book the angles are tastefully chosen And I learned something about Japanese society that I didn t before if ou have tattoos on display The Celestial Selenite Scry (The Moon God Trilogy, you won t be allowed to work out in gyms because tattoos are euated with theakuza Japanese gangsters A lot of people have tats are they all likely to be in the mafia But then that s just another sign of Japan s general oversensitivity Certain plot points stay unresolved by the end but that s because this is the first part of a series and I ll definitely be returning to see what happens next My Brother s Husband Volume 1 is remarkably powerful and masterful storytelling easily one of the best mangas I ve ever

definitely need to re review this amazing amazing graphic novel about living as a gay person in JapanRyojineed to re review this amazing amazing graphic novel about living as a gay person in JapanRyoji out to his twin Yiachi at age 15 and due to the Japanese way of dealing with homosexuality by not talking about it like ever the brothers grew apart with Ryoji making a life for himself in Canada and finding a loving husband in Mike Flannagan a gentle hearted CanadianHowever Ryoji dies unexpectedly and Mike decides to visit Japan to meet his late husband s family His twin brother Yiachi and his daughter Kana Yiachi has a hard time accepting the foreigner in his home but his open minded daughter Kana loves her new found Uncle Mike and helps convince her dad that some things he took for granted all his life are actually worth giving a second thought and re evaluating Not to mention Yiachi s own feelingsI ve hardly ever read a story beautiful and touching It s not a romance per se as I initially thought but a beautiful family oriented tale about acceptance and love that can be read by families with children even though the artist seemed to be known for rather hardcore porn mangas in the past LOL His art in this graphic novel is absolutely amazing though Well in any case this story deserves nothing but praise I ve learned a lot about Japanese culture which I am sure many details got lost in translation but still and I absolutely adored Yiachi and his daughter KanaThank ou Adam5 stars and on my all time favorites list Single dad Yaichi s estranged gay brother recently passed away In the wake of his death his burly friendly Canadian husband Mike has come to Japan to finally meet his brother in law and niece for the first time Mike s presence forces Yaichi to confront his own deeply buried prejudices about gay people as well as address his strangely emotionless and lonely life I love Japan the people and the culture but speaking from personal experienceobservations I know many of its societal attitudes are ass backwards to say the least As well as having an insanely brutal work lifestyle that drives
Too Many People Tomany people to each ear the Japanese in general are extremely racist xenophobic and sexually repressed though these aspects are hidden from the outside world so as to maintain the facade of being harmless amiable eccentrics to keep the tourist income rolling in Sadly the absurd caricature of gay people as perverts remains fixed in Japanese society still and gay marriage is illegal over there Gay relationships is the subject that writerartist Gengoroh Tagame explores in his superb all ages manga My Brother s Husband I loved everything about this book See my belligerent political rant above That s a shitty way to try to convince anyone of Fields of Fire (Frontlines, your point of view Instead Tagame adopts a far winning approach emphasising the similarities not the differences between gay and straight people in order to good naturedly and gently demystify outdated and offensive stereotypes But better he does this through primarily focusing on creating strong compelling characters and a uality story ie the reason why anyone would pick up this book in the first place to be entertained not to be lectured at Each of the three main characters has a story that could be a fine book in themselves Mike s just lost the love of his life and is trying to keep his memory alive through meeting his family and going to places he s only heard stories about Yaichi is divorced but still has feelings for his ex wife He s struggling with being a single dad as well as confronting the long suppress.

TW homophobiaMy reading experience of this was greatly enhanced by the fact that Anderson Cooper blurbed this and I had an out of bodyet special experience knowing I was reading something that Anderson Cooper has also read But I also enjoyed this book for what it was The storyline of challenging Redeemed (The MacKays your own belief systems and culture in order to be accepting was touching and seeing how aoung girl interacted so positively with her gay uncle in a community that otherwise shunned him was especially wholesome I definitely wanna pick up volume two to see where this goesThe biggest issue I had This Book Is How The Two Male Characters this book is how sexualized the two male characters especially when blended with scenes with this oung girl The author is well known for writing gay erotica stories which I don t shame at all but the hypersexualization of these two men just came off as really distasteful to me when the conversations they were having were so critically serious I don t think it s wrong for either man to be depicted as large and muscular obviously some men are shaped that way and I also don t want to imply at all that gay men are all pedophiles but there are some panels in this book that come off as pretty gross because there will be the sexualization of grown men put right beside a picture of this oung girl or interacting with her In particular there s a scene of the father thinking about his The Wedding (Lux, young daughter while in the shower which I get wasn t a sexual situation and it s natural to ponder things while in the shower but I think the author included a lot of bodily detail and angles that made it look really inappropriate and instances like this arose than once in the book surrounding the sexualization of the men versus the presence of theoung girl Even though I was cringing pretty often in this because I didn t like how sexual the drawing style was in proximity to such a oung girl I still think its overall message of acceptance and challenging homophobia was sweet I m definitely reuesting volume two from the library just to see where it goes from here Heartwarming and fairly innocent inoffensive manga about Kana a little girl who s raised by her single father Jaichi whose identical and gay twin brother Ryoji dies Ryoji lived in Canada and was married to a huge burly Canadian Mike who pays Jaichi and his daughter Kana a visit in Japan Although this was an endearing all ages story with many touching moments for the most part it felt too didactic and conventional to me and I think it s suited for teenagers The author attempt 4 StarsI m not an expert in manga by any means but I can see how this story has hopefully made some strides in breaking some barriers towards acceptance not only in Japan but everywhereYaichi is confronted with his dead brother Ryoji s truth in the form of Ryoji s big Canadian widower Mike who shows up hoping to go down memory lane and connect with Ryoji s family whom he s never met Though Yaichi never rejected his twin he wasn t as accepting either and his natural inclination to ignore or avoid is brought down as he learns and slowly changes his preconceived notions and bigotry through his daughter Kana s innocence and unwavering acceptanceThe manga s simplicity points out issues plainly hitting the mark with precision both painful and poignant 35 funny affirming sweet stars I read this to celebrate Pride Month and since I am a very wild person NOT I always try something new for this special time I am a No longer a Manga virgin First the illustrations are absolutely vivid and beautiful and it was a joy to flip these pages and follow along Mike a white Canadian visits Japan after his Japanese husband dies to visit his brother in law and niece All the characters are adorable as they try to grapple with their new relationships cultural differences and deal with their grief This is suitable for those 13 plus I especially loved how inclusive and affirming this was I am not sure Manga is something I will heavily get into but this was a promising and lovely start This manga charmed me from the very first page I was under its
