Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi's estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji's past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it's been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it.

Opinion

From Library Staff

This book made me love manga again! Great character growth, hilarious culture gaps, and a beautiful, diverse family relationship. I can't wait for the next volume. Suggested by Lindsey A.

A Japanese man struggles when he meets his deceased brother's burly Canadian widower. This beautifully-drawn graphic novel tells a very simple, yet powerful, story.
