An LGBT+ manga about finding friendship and common ground at an untraditional maid café!
Mogumo is a cute but lonely non-binary high school student who just wants a few loving friends. As someone who doesn’t identify as a boy or a girl, however, finding people who really understand can be a big challenge. When fellow student Iwaoka Tetsu invites Mogumo to work at an untraditional maid café, Mogumo is hopeful that things are looking up. Will they finally find friends to call their own—or just more misunderstanding?
About the Author
Praise For Love Me for Who I Am Vol. 1…
"From the start of its second chapter, [Love Me for Who I Am] had me mesmerized...relatable conflicts and challenges fill nearly every panel. The raw emotion of these are made palatable to even the most casual readers, though, by its sugary coating."
--Ashley Hakker, Anime Herald
"Clear, endearing art enhances the narrative’s accessibility... Manga creator Konayama, while not nonbinary, embraces difficult conversations leading to meaningful moments...making this an appealing queer series opener for rom-com fans." --Publishers Weekly
