Wish there was another one. It took a while for me to get into the second and final volume of Gengoroh Tagame s superb series, My Brother s Husband, because not a whole lot initially happens the whole onsen episode And, really, not much happens afterwards either in that regard, this feels like a superfluous book Yaichi has accepted his dead brother Ryoji s homosexuality and he and his daughter Kana have become friends with his brother in law, burly Canadian bear Mike that s the arc and it was done by the end of Vol It took a while for me to get into the second and final volume of Gengoroh Tagame s superb series, My Brother s Husband, because not a whole lot initially happens the whole onsen episode And, really, not much happens afterwards either in that regard, this feels like a superfluous book Yaichi has accepted his dead brother Ryoji s homosexuality and he and his daughter Kana have become friends with his brother in law, burly Canadian bear Mike that s the arc and it was done by the end of Volume 1 Still, there s so many feels later on in this book that, even if it does seem a little unnecessary, it s impossible not to like Seeing Yaichi, Kana and Mike s relationship blossom further is heart warming and Yaichi continues to grow as a person From someone who turned his back on his brother for being gay, he s now sticking up for Mike after a schoolteacher is alarmed that Kana s uncle is living, what is still in Japan, a taboo lifestyle And Yaichi seeing the photos of his brother s wedding and how his bigotry led him to miss out on such an important occasion bawls That whole final half is one long sob fest so fair warning, guys Mike listening to the closeted gay kid and giving him advice, Yaichi taking Mike to his parents graves, Mike saying his goodbyes to both Kana and Yaichi individually this manga is all heart My Brother s Husband, Volume 2 is a bit overlong with a slow beginning but Gengoroh Tagame s crafted a modern masterpiece with this series Here s hoping the real audience for this title close minded Japanese learn to becomeaccepting and loving like Yaichi Nothing good ever came from prejudice The second volume of this Manga was muchrestrained than the first installment that felt too didactic, yet delved deeper into the difficulties and discomfort with which homosexuals are being faced and the awkward self consciousness they feel due to the constant social and moral shunning by their straight fellow man A book with a heart and a voice.
