A gripping view of what depression and anxiety looks like with a ton of sexual repression. This manga really captures a lot of the struggles someone with mental health issues goes through, and how difficult it can be to cope with in a society that is ill-equipped to identify what’s going on and how to help.

It’s not all sad though. The author finds hope in small moments with individuals throughout the story. Because of the kindness and patience these people give her, she is able to look into herself and discover things that give her the ability to go on and try to improve her life.

My favorite thing about this manga is that she points out how the struggle is ongoing despite all she’s done to pull herself through the darkest times. She’s still struggling, still learning, and still growing. I feel that is what makes this story the most accessible and real. ( )

"A reason to live, the power to live, a place to belong in this world." This quote sums up this novel. A very sweet but thoughtful manga. The struggle is real. ( )

An honest look at how depression, repression, and anxiety can shape a young adult life. The kind of reflection and introspection here feels far more honest than the intellectual posturing of most autobiographical writing from the west, and almost all writing from men. Sexuality is used as a lens into self-knowledge; this is not smut (or even particularly graphic, and in context of the framing and narrative not really erotic, just raw). Very good. ( )

There absolutely has to be content warning written on the first page, or the back of the cover for the English release of the doujin.

There are descriptions and drawings of self-harm with a sharp tool (including scars, but also a person actively self-harming). I've found the book very interesting as someone who is heavily struggling with schizophrenia and resulting depression and loneliness - I'm also in a same-sex relationship for 6 years which I have to hide from my family, so I hoped to seek comfort in this book. I haven't seen any mentions of self-harm nor eating disorders, which absolutely have to be disclosed. I've been struggling with the former for over a decade and I really wish I knew before I've started reading this book, because I would avoid it - it is definitely triggering for people who struggle not to relapse. There are also quite detailed drawings of very thin bodies and mentions of low weight with direct BMI disclosing.

If you're also actively struggling with self-harm or eating disorders, please think twice before reading this book. It's only for people who are fully recovered or have never had issues with self-harm nor ED, and there is no written warning that it contains such subjects. ( )

when a memoir is lacking it always feels a bit like i'm saying something about the writer's life is wrong or missing or not what i wanted, when really it's something in the telling and the book itself. i almost always want more from graphic novels and memoirs and this is no exception. there are so many missing pieces here. which is too bad, because i'm not sure that there can be enough books out there about self-acceptance and mental illness.

the title is misleading because this really isn't about a lesbian experience of anything. she's incidentally lesbian (which is great; it's just implied that she's lonely because she's a lesbian and that's incorrect) and incidentally lonely as well (because it's actually about depression and low self-esteem, which leads to loneliness as a byproduct). it's a book about self-realization in baby steps. she's made progress by the end, but it's realistically not a lot. it's about caring more about what she thinks about herself and what she wants to be than what her parents think about how she should be. it's about human interaction and touch, and how depression gets in the way of those connections.

i understand that her use of an escort service was reaching out and was one of the things she was trying to do to bring herself back to herself, to make connection, to be herself and get what she needed when she knew no other way how. i have a hard time with it, though, with the idea of using someone else like that. someone who may not be able to truly fully consent to it. maybe it's different in japan than it is here.

her coming out of her depression struck me as - while her story, so true - a disservice to people with mental illness. it seemed like she realized that taking better care of herself would lead other people to treat her better, which would help her feel better about herself, so she just started doing it. it seems like it wouldn't have been that easy. in only one panel she said something about her therapist, and i don't think that therapy should be glossed over for someone with the long-term and wide array of issues that she has.

there was too much missing here for me to be satisfied, but still, i'm glad it's a story that's out there and is apparently resonating with other people who read it. she is brave to put this out there in all its messiness and with such raw honesty.

"Maybe I'll be able to look harder at the past by getting some experience in the present." ( )
