In this heartwarming and award-winning manga originally known as Metamorphose no Engawa, an elderly woman and a high school girl develop a beautiful friendship through their shared passion for Boys’ Love.
Ichinoi, a seventy-five-year-old woman living a peaceful life, unwittingly buys a boys’ love manga one day, and is fascinated by what she finds inside. When she returns to the bookstore to buy the next volume, the high school girl working there—Urara, a seasoned BL fan—notices a budding fangirl when she sees one. When Urara offers to help Ichinoi explore this whole new world of fiction, the two dive into the BL fandom together, and form an unlikely friendship along the way.
“…a refreshing intergenerational friendship tale in which one’s gender isn’t a restriction when it comes to being a fan of media about romantic relationships between men… Reminiscent of Princess Jellyfish, this female-centric view of a subgenre usually known for its steamier aspects offers an unusual and endearing twist to manga’s expected pairings.” – Publishers Weekly
