About Our Dreams at Dusk Shimanami Tasogare Manga Volume 1

Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare Manga Volume 1 features story and art by Yuhki Kamatani.

Not only is high schooler Tasuku Kaname the new kid in town, he is also terrified that he has been outed as gay. Just as he’s contemplating doing the unthinkable, Tasuku meets a mysterious woman who leads him to a group of people dealing with problems not so different from his own.

In this realistic, heartfelt depiction of LGBT+ characters from different backgrounds finding their place in the world, a search for inner peace proves to be the most universal experience of all.

Beautiful and refreshing

by

My friend recently turned me onto this after sharing some of the pages of the gorgeous art, and I got hooked by the surprisingly realistic portrayal of the themes. The internal struggle and deflection of a character fighting against admitting what they believe will be the end of a 'comfortable' social persona is refreshing and a good look into the feelings of someone coming to terms with their sexuality. I dont really see this type of portrayal in japanese media so while there are some convos or ideologies that may seem jarring, it feels really authentic and doesnt pull its punches.

Shimanami Tasogare feels like a great glimpse into LGBT topics specifically how they relate to japanese culture, and doesn't have any focus on the sexual aspect as many are wont to do. Give this, regrettably, short series a chance and I'm sure it will be a great addition to any shelf!
