A powerful story about finding yourself and destroying your fears.

I'm so glad I found this graphic novel series - yes, there's a total of 4)!

Centered around an informal LGBTQ+ community center in Japan, it explores the struggles and joys of several different queer people - none of whom are required to be perfect to be valid. It can be hard to figure out who you are and how you want others to treat you, how and when to enforce those boundaries, and even, sometimes, how to support others.

I loved the delicacy and the artwork and the progression of the story.  I've already put the rest of the books on hold.

My favourite quote: "It's so simple. I want to live a happily with the one I love. That's all I want. That's all I desire. What's wrong with wanting that?"
