My Lesbian Experience With Lonliness. The god honest autobiography manga that gives an insight to the struggles of finding your own wings when growing up caged in expectations. Extremely relatable for most people and raw, My Lesbian Experience With Lonliness is a manga that you need to check out. Especially if you have mental health problems or struggle with getting your life on track. Our main character is Kabi Nagata, a lonely twenty eight year old stuck in a cycle of identity issues, eating disorders, self harm, depression, anxiety, parent problems, and adulthood. We watch as she learns to navigate these burdensome emotions and slowly find happiness and a sense of self. This is through her encounter with a lesbian prostitute as this action opens her eyes to what she was missing and what she needs. With great presentation of one's harsh experiences with life and amazing explanations as well as insight on one's emotions this manga easily resonates with many people. Not just lesbians or people with mental health issues but everyone, the way this story is set up you can empathasize with reader no matter your personal identity because of it's great display of Nagata's trials. This manga is extremely refreshing, the lack of over exaggeration and melodrama makes the topics not sound corny or cliched. It's clear cut and doesn't sugar coat the problems she faces either. While it does have some humorous aspects to it the topics are mostly taken seriously. It also goes in depth into her character despite being a measly five chapters long. Usually I kind of find short manga to be lacking in many ways but with My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness I couldn't find much to complain about. Since it is an autobiography I couldn't treat it or critique it as a normal piece of fiction, so maybe this adds to the zero complaints a little. But overall I had a great time reading this. I felt like I could really relate to this piece of work and was able to find out a little about myself too in a way. My Lesbian Experience With Lonliness is an amazing manga. Short, sweet, and great for a somewhat light psychological story.
