My Solo Exchange Diary Vol. 2 Reviews
I really respect Nagata Kabi for putting herself out there and talking so openly about her anxiety and depression. I understand that mental illness is a painful thing to live with, especially in a place like Japan where seeking therapy is still fairly frowned upon. But I still found it hard to read about this woman doing little more than running circles in her own little pit of despair. I hope she can get out someday and find happiness, but I honestly have my doubts.
This entry is more frustrating than the previous two as the author mostly sets aside LGBTQ issues and focuses on the anxiety and depression which eventually result in her voluntary hospitalization following a strong bout of substance abuse.
Outside forces seem to be affecting the narrative as the author recounts how her family reacts to their depictions in the early volumes and realizes she is under some pressure to bring the series to a conclusion for the publisher. Some of the developments felt ...more
To me, Nagata Kabi / Kabi Nagata is an inspiration for acceptance of who I am as well as to strive for positive change.
Like the last two, this volume broke my heart over and over again and it will be a while before I forget her pain and sadness 😭😭
Thank you, Nagata Kabi, for showing the ugly side on mental illness in a widely published manga. This volume was a very hard read, but worth it. And if you end up googling yourself again, I wish you all the best!!! Keep on fighting, we are fighting alongside you!
This comic has become something different... and it's great. Reminds me a lot of Alison Bechdel's Fun Home and its sequel, Are You My Mother? with like the emotional, relatable anxiety narrative... and the open conversation and healing after.
With this one, I think it's important to see that depression is a lifelong struggle... but things do get better! Not forever, but better!
This volume included an original short story that was really, really good! Hoping for more!!
Wow, I still admire Nagata for being able to put so much of herself on the page; I really found it interesting that she included the repercussions of her first book in this one. I mean, considering this is a memoir, it makes sense, but she could have just as easily left things out to help with her relationship with her family.
Kudos for being so candid and honest, and frankly, brave.
Depression and hospitalization. Less gripping than volyme one, with more simplistic art.
