About There Are Things I Can't Tell You Manga

There Are Things I Can't Tell You manga features story and art by Edako Mofumofu.

Kasumi and Kyousuke are polar opposites when it comes to personality. Kasumi is reserved, soft-spoken and shy; Kyousuke is energetic and has always been popular among their peers. As the saying goes though, opposites have a tendency to attract, and these two have been fast friends since elementary school. To Kasumi, Kyousuke has always been a hero to look up to, someone who supports him and saves him from the bullies. But now, school is over; their relationship suddenly becomes a lot less simple to describe. Facing the world ― and one another ― as adults, both men find there are things they struggle to say out loud, even to each other.

Happiness forged from brokenness

by -

The absence of homophobia as a plot point in typical yaoi is a double-edged sword: on the one hand, it aids in the escapism by not having to worry about real-world societal problems while reading about boys falling in love. On the other hand, the lack of acknowledgement is often ironically conspicuous, given that Japan is markedly more conservative on LGBT rights than even the low bar of the US. So it's interesting to see a book where much of the protagonist's inner conflict is a result of homophobia, internalized and otherwise.

Kyousuke has loved Kasumi since they were children, but fights against that feeling for fear of doing something "wrong." In doing so, he tries to do what he feels is best for Kasumi, but this inadvertently worsens Kasumi's own feelings of worthlessness. Can they learn to love themselves enough to love each other?

This is a story of overcoming deep-seated self-loathing through the power of love, and if you're down for that, it's a wonderful read.
