    My Brother's Husband 1

    Staff Picks

    Though the story is quite heartbreaking at times, overall it leaves the reader with a sense of hope that the current younger generation of Japan will help bring more openness and acceptance towards LGBTQ members of their society. It is a worthwhile read for anybody, but particularly for anyone interested in Japan, LGBTQ culture, and/or cultural differences in general. A staple for any manga lover’s collection.
