Comedy about people being awful at cooking is incredibly played out in manga, but especially when trying to tell a more serious story. It’s not until the couple go on a ‘pilgrimage’ one weekend to Kochi where a special exhibition is being held celebrating one of Yuriko’s favourite Boys’ Love manga, that they get to learn more about each other. But romance isn’t the only base for a lasting relationship, and that’s what I Want to Be a Wall (Watashi wa Kabe ni Naritai)Volume 1 is about. The blood of Yuriko and Gakurouta’s covenant and pact, the promise to continue forging a bond where they get to be asexual and gay and don’t have to force themselves to put on masks, is beautifully optimistic.

I don’t usually quote from publisher’s blurbs, especially when the volume concerned hasn’t yet been published, but my feeling that we needed much more backstory in this volume is obviously going to be addressed in Volume 2 (due out January 2023). The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and. It’s my office-slash-bedroom, the sound of my aluminum crochet hook catching on yarn as I sit in front of Lake Whatcom, the tap-tap-tap of my feet as I dance in my shared apartment.I still don’t know where my transition will take me: I’m closer to being who I want to be, but I’ve still got a long life ahead of me.

Gakurouta, described in one instance by Yuriko to herself as ‘a secretive person’ is more, I’d say, self-reliant, having led a rather secluded life; he’s still not used to sharing with another person.

But Yuriko's mom seemed to have been resigned to her daughter never getting married, and Sousuke didn't seem particularly concerned about hiding his sexuality, just his feelings for Sousuke.I loved overly earnest Gakurouta, and the flashback to Yuriko's younger years was excellent, as was her examination of why she tends to prefer BL stories. But a chance second encounter on the street revealed that as an asexual woman and gay man, they might have much more in common than they initially assumed. For the past two–almost three–years, the AniFam and internet at large has known me professionally as Mercedez Clewis. Credit where it’s due, the flashback that he’s given is also quite interesting and shows his increasing heartbreak as he realizes that his feelings towards his friend are a lot stronger than the ones directed back at him.
