弟の夫 (My Brother’s Husband) Volume 1
Manga by Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎)
Release Date: May 25th, 2015
Gengoroh Tagame’s first general audience manga, My Brother’s Husband, will be released in book form on May 25th! Eschewing his familiar hardcore sex and BDSM themes, Tagame uses slice of life realism and gentle humor to address issues of societal and familial acceptance of homosexuaity in My Brother’s Husband. The ongoing manga series tells the story of single dad Yaichi whose twin brother passes away, prompting his brother’s Canadian husband, Mike, to visit Yaichi and and his plucky daughter Natsuna in Japan. Collecting the first seven chapters of Tagame’s subtly rendered series for Monthly Action (月刊アクション) magazine, the book hits stands the same day as Monthly Action’s latest issue, which contains the manga’s partially-in-color eighth installment.
