Reading Nakamura Asumiko's work has definitely been a wonderful experience. I encountered Copernicus no Kokyuu first and I found myself totally mesmerized by her unique way of story-telling! I don't think I've read a manga that explore themes of gender, sexuality, rape and abuse so vividly with a dark, deep and mysterious tone to it. It's definitely one that I do keep re-reading from time to time and it always gets me.

The reason I love this work is the reason I love most of Nakarmua Asumiko's dark works over her fluff works (not to say I don't like them, but her dark works are just more satisfying for me as a reader), she does not laugh off a serious situation. In BL it's common to gloss over or make funny an issue that should be taken with more severity. For instance in J no Subete, J is a cross dresser and perhaps Trans. He isn't a cross-dresser because he is envious of woman, he isn't a cross-dresser because he needs to be comedic read more

What CAN'T I say about this manga? (This will be a bit of a scattered review) It takes the reader literally everywhere, from Marilyn Manroe to some very dark places that at times can be very difficult to read for many. The characters in this manga are aplenty (for a Nakamura manga); it starts off taking place at the school from "Barairo no Hoho no Koro" which is a lighter story than "J" . I find that this manga, "Copernicus no Kokyuu" and "Double Mints" are some of Nakamura-san's darkest, purely because there is graphic rape scenes and many deaths. I would say that this read more

J no Subete is a rather interesting manga.

It’s a rather morose tale about a person named ‘J’ – yes, that’s the whole name – who supposedly looks like Marilyn Monroe and, apparently, likes to spend time singing dressing up as a woman. The manga presents his life in a rather matter-of-fact way; that is, there’s no great point or goal. You’re really just learning about the times and struggle of J.

In that aspect, the manga does well. Initially, J comes off as this sort of ‘doll’ that seem to live mostly for attention without any real thoughts. Roughly ¼ through the manga, though, things changes read more
