Synopsis

Three years ago, Hashimoto Shun, a gay novelist in the making, met Chibana Mio, a very quiet high school student, in Okinawa.
Mio had lost both of his two parents and was often seen sitting on a bench until very late, watching the sea, near Shun's house.
They slowly grew closer to one another, but Mio suddenly had to leave the island, to pursue his studies...

Three years later, Mio returns to Okinawa: "I've been thinking a lot these last three years... Even if he's a man too, I love Shun."

Will these two finally be able to take a step forward together?

Background

Umibe no Étranger was published in German as Ein Fremder am Strand by Tokyopop on January 14, 2016, and Spanish by Milky Way Ediciones as Un extraño a la orilla del mar on May 24, 2017.

I'm not sure why there hasn't been a review for this series yet, but I decided I would go ahead and be the first to do so. (It's been a while since I've reviewed anything in depth, so bear with me!)

Umibe no Etranger (or Seaside Stranger) is not one of those yaoi stories where they fall in love immediately and then it's just sex, something happens, then more sex. Umibe no Etranger maturely covers issues such as loss, loneliness, and isolation while still managing to be pretty light-hearted and beautiful (seriously, the art is gorgeous).

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS (minor) SPOILERS

I've never really done this before, but I decided to write a review to encourage others on picking this series up. I tried my best to be as in depth but succinct as possible, so bear with me!

Story (7/10)
Umibe no Etranger isn't about "love healing all wounds". It's about two people finding reprieve and genuinely caring about one another, helping each other grow bit by bit. The concept isn't too original or outstanding, but the way Kii Kanna handles it made me enjoy it. It has a very warm tone, with slight undertones of melancholy; taking themes such as death, loss, read more
