About Love Me for Who I Am Manga Volume 1

Mogumo is a cute but lonely non-binary high school student who just wants a few loving friends. As someone who doesn’t identify as a boy or a girl, however, finding people who really understand can be a big challenge. When fellow student Iwaoka Tetsu invites Mogumo to work at an untraditional maid café, Mogumo is hopeful that things are looking up. Will they finally find friends to call their own—or just more misunderstanding?

A+ series

by -

This is easily one of the best ongoing LGBT+ series there is right now. It doesn't shy away from tackling gender identity and sexual orientation at all and offers a wide array of representation. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't specify character names but this series has: a non-binary character, two trans women, a gay femme boy and a lesbian and they *aren't* just side characters who get basically no attention! For the record if it wasn't clear I'm referring to the series as a whole which in Japan is on volume 4 I believe as of writing this review. I clarified that because I want new fans to not go in expecting these first 6 chapters to give them *everything* they give a lot, but not everything I listed. Certain reviews that I've seen are way too judgemental with a first volume, so I just want people to go in with the proper expectations.

A great sorry about personal struggle

by -

This is an amazing LGBTQ+ story, it expresses the struggle to find your own identity in a world full of labels so well. If you are looking for a book that explores personal struggle this is a great buy. I will say that you jump head first into the story, and it can be a little confusing, but keep reading the context and story builds well.

Beautiful representation


I ordered this manga while searching for queer love stories. I’ve collected all the volumes (5) and this series is absolutely worth it. It shows the genuine struggle of self-identification as a queer young person, and the representation is on-point, no sexualization or bastardized characteristics. It gets dark, but the story itself is wonderful. Highly recommend.

Probably better for someone else

by -

Let me establish 2 things:
1) I don't fit neatly under a gender umbrella
2) I am well aware of and try to reframe my mindset around the fact that modern-day Japan sits around 50 years behind the USA in social progressiveness at any and all times
Both of those things being said? I Think I'm too close to the issue at-hand to be able to enjoy this. I can't get more than about a quarter of the way through the first book. Esp since these issues are not being told by the Enby Character, but rather someone who's motivation is somewhere between "I like my older brother who wants to be a girl and want to feel more understanding of him!" and "WOW I wanna date the cute boy who may not be a boy but also definitely is a boy!!" It gives me a grim reminder of how the rest of the world sees trans folk, and it's put way too sour of a taste in my mouth to continue. The art is fine, everything is well-explained. Just... Maybe not the best read for anyone who experiences a LOT of rabid transphobia.
