At the peak of a steep hill, in the picturesque Onomichi town, stands a building with a lounge open to all. An unusual group of friendly people gathers there, each with their own stories to tell.

Tasuku Kaname is a troubled high school student who is prepared to commit suicide because his classmates found out that he might be gay. As he questions his existence, the sight of a mysterious woman jumping off a nearby building leaves him utterly startled. He rushes to the scene only to discover her unharmed, soon learning that she is the owner of the aforementioned building, known to everyone as "Anonymous."

Anonymous notices Tasuku's nervous temperament and offers him an ear if he is willing to share his problems. While speaking to her, he realizes that the most painful thing is his inability to accept his sexuality. Emotional and heartfelt, Shimanami Tasogare is a realistic take on the struggles of Tasuku among other lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in coming to terms with their selves.

There's alot of neutral to negative reviews of this manga on here, and I simply and utterly disagree with all of them.

This is, simply put, the most accurate depiction of the LGBT+ experience I have ever read in Manga. If you are looking for a BL story this is not it. It's bitter, honest, and up-front about the pain of human connection, the contradictions we all create in personhood and the struggle of being alone vs being understood.

Characters across all ages, in various stages of their lives and their identities come together to form a community.

I've seen some people say this is ...

Mixed Feelings
As someone apart of the LGBTQ community, I wanted to read this for a while as I heard it was good and the artstyle was really nice. Ultimately, that's pretty much the only thing this manga has going for it. As I read this, I felt myself feel incredibly bored and questioned if i should even read the rest. Seeing as how it was as short as it was, I decided to finish it entirely anyway. But I definitely would not recommend this to anyone.

The story is incredibly mediocre and boring. I understand its centered around the gay characters and coming out and some other ...

(TLDR Review at the bottom, as always, thanks for reading)
(Minor spoilers marked)

This must single-handedly be one of the dumbest stories I have come across so far in manga.

Let's get into the foundation of things and understand why. Japan isn't the most LGBT friendly country in the world, there are still some issues.

Having said this, however, through my simple search it is clear as day that most people in Japan do not have a problem with LGBT people. Of ...
