Sequel to Ground-Breaking My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness Announced
Seven Seas had a surprising success with this year’s My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness by Nagata Kabi. The manga broke through to new and crossover audiences with its autobiographical tale of a young woman coming to terms with her sexuality after a series of struggles, including hiring a prostitute.
Now they’ve announced that they will be publishing a sequel. My Solo Exchange Diary explores “personal issues surrounding mental health, identity, and intimacy. Her relationship with her parents is growing more difficult than ever, and she struggles with the idea of living alone for the first time.”
Seven Seas bills these stories as expressing the “challenges of adulthood”, and that likely explains the enthusiastic readership, as who can’t relate to that? My Solo Exchange Diary will be available in English on June 5, 2018 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
