Jealous of other people successfully moving forward in life and constantly eaten away by her insecurities, Kabi Nagata finally musters the courage to leave her parents and move into a new apartment alone. Unfortunately, she struggles to adapt to this new lifestyle and begins to contemplate her newfound feelings of loneliness, including her estranged relationship with her mother and what it means to love and be loved. 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.

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 ...

This is a sequel to the manga "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness" so I would recommend checking out that one first before reading this one. It is an autobiography done in a manga form.

Honestly man, this story is relatable af if you're living with your parents and just fed up being lonely.

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 ...
