Q: Do you have any information about trans or gender nonconforming people in gay manga? I can't really find anything other than wandering son and any recommendations you have would be super appreciated!

Great question! I wish I knew more about trans manga but my firsthand experience with the genre is pretty much limited to Wandering Son. Here are a few helpful lists and articles on the subject:

On our recent trip to Tokyo, we had a great meeting with the publisher Bunkasha, which puts out some of Kumada Poohsuke’s books. We’re hoping to start importing some of Bunkasha’s other titles to stock on the MASSIVE store, especially Seibetsu ga, Nai! (性別が、ない! ), an awesome 15-volume series of comic essays by intersex mangaka Shou Arai (新井祥). Stay tuned!
