Love Me For Who I Am follows the story of a nonbinary high schooler, Mogumo, who one day made a wish to find friends who really understand them. Their classmate, Iwaoka Tetsu, saw them making the wish and decided to invite them to a crossing dressing boy’s cafe. But the classmate didn’t know that Mogumo doesn’t identify as a boy or a girl and when they got to the cafe Mogumo felt hurt. Even though the cafe is for “cross-dressing boys” Mogumo slowly opened up to Tetsu and their new friendly coworkers who understand what they’re going through.
I really enjoyed this manga because it sheds light on the nonbinary community and the many challenges they face. I fell more in love with this manga as I continued reading because of how utterly cute every moment is and how much I wanna protect my little precious Mogumo! This easily made it into my top favorite manga and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the LGBTQ+ community or for somebody who just wants a wholesome story about characters discovering who they truly are.
Mogumo is a cute but lonely high school student who just wants a few loving friends. Fellow student Iwaoka Tetsu invites Mogumo to work at his family’s café for “cross-dressing boys,” but he makes an incorrect assumption: Mogumo is non-binary and doesn’t identify as a boy or a girl. However, Mogumo soon finds out that the café is run by LGBT+ folks of all stripes, all with their own reasons for congregating there. This touching manga explores gender, gender presentation, and sexuality from many different angles, including the ways people are pushed to conform in a world that doesn’t understand them…until the world begins to learn, one person at a time.Add to CartLearn More
