As the psychological pressure mounts, her resolve waivers.

From her family to love, Nagata attempts to overcome her tumultuous past and heal the wounds that afflict her. No matter how broken she may be, she does her best to move forward.

I really want to say that I love this series because I can relate to Kabi-sensei's struggles, but I think it's more correct to say that Kabi-sensei made me relate to her struggles. I felt myself empathizing with Kabi-sensei while reading her earlier work, My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness, feeling sorry for her as she described her depression, anxiety, and sexuality.

Rarely do I encounter an existence that feels so deserving of my utmost sympathy. My Solo Exchange Diary is a sequel to Kabi Nagata's debut book My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness, and through a series of loosely connected letters to her future self it takes you on a journey of various uncomfortable mental states and emotional struggles of its author as she keeps trying to make sense of her life and relationship with her family. It may not be as coherent as Lesbian Experience, but that works to illustrate the mess Nagata-sensei has set out to put in order. I would say it is just ...
