The timing of this announcement really could not be more perfect, why do I say this? Well within the next 48 hours we should have gay marriage legalized here in Australia!
The announcement of a live action adaptation of this ground breaking manga by Gengoroh Tagame is just beyond amazing. The manga itself tells the story of Yatchi a single father who has a surprise visit from Mike Flanagan, a canadian man who was the husband to his estranged twin brother, Ryoji who had recently passed away. It is a very sweet story with some very serious themes within it. From family acceptance to the ongoing homophobia still seen in Japan it is a must read for anyone who is a fan of LGBTQ+ media.
The manga itself is something I have wanted to review for a long time here on Yaoi Playground. The only reason I have not is because this is one title I would very much like to own a copy of in my personal manga collection before reviewing it.
