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.

But with My Solo Exchange Diary, it was so much more intense. This series isn't at all structured like My Lesbian Experience, which had a well-defined beginning, middle, and end all centered around her lesbian experience. In fact, My Solo Exchange Diary doesn't have much read more

My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness is, well, very clearly about being a lesbian and being lonely. My Solo Exchange Diary has a less straightforward title, but its theme still becomes apparent pretty quickly.

My Solo Exchange Diary is about your mom.

It’s about all the things you have to hide from her. It’s about trying to come to terms with how she raised you. It’s about trying and failing to escape her unceasing mental and physical gravity. It’s about looking for substitutes for her seemingly uncaring warmth. It’s about being a family disgrace in so many different ways.

Peppered throughout are the mangaka’s reflections on depression, motivation, separation, read more

Where do I begin? As someone who could relate with many aspects of this manga, it is impossible for me to find anything bad to say about it.
The mangaka is entirely open and honest about how events in her life have shaped her into the person she is now. She is well aware of her "faults" and the ways in which her subconscious have led to her actions in life.
While telling this often sad, yet also inspirational, story the mangaka finds ways to make me laugh and find so much enjoyment in her unique art style.
I look forward to more content from read more

Honestly man, this story is relatable af if you're living with your parents and just fed up being lonely. I really empathize that Nagata had to go through alcoholism, depression, loneliness, uncertainty, and pretty much, having her mum annoy her saying she's good for nothing just because she's sleeping a lot. I mean I'm sure it's hard enough to survive being a mangaka and really, Nagata really illustrated this part of her life well! It's quite emotional but yknow any of us are going through it right now due to covid when it comes to loneliness. This is probably the best relatable time to read read more
