Black-winged Love Synopsis
: Black-winged Love by Tomoko Yamashita explores the challenges of being gay in a predominately heterosexual society. In a story of high school love, a protective sister tries to stop a group of homophobes from harassing her brother. Things get complicated, though, when she discovers that the guy her brother likes is leading the attacks. In another tale of schoolboy love, Kanome finds himself alone in the library with a classmate he likes, and starts to heat up the conversation. A more serious sketch follows Minori, a boy debating coming out to his family. Shortly after he decides that neither he nor his family is ready, his sister jumps the gun and outs him at the dinner table. Will his family be able to come together in acceptance, or has Minori forever torn them apart? Other stories introduce the heartbreak of unreciprocated life-long devotion, a glimpse into the nightlife of a sultry hustler, and the hilarious antics caused by sexual tension between friends. Black-winged Love uses beautiful art to touch on both the serious and lighter sides of love.
