Nagata Kabi’s popular autobiographic slice of life manga My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness dealing with sexuality and depression will be published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment.
About a year ago, Nagata Kabi, an amateur Japanese manga artist, had created a short illustrated comic book detailing her experiences with depression and how the feeling of isolation and profound sadness lead her to visit a lesbian brothel in search of comfort. The work has reached immense popularity on the artist community site Pixiv, reaching over five million total page views for all the parts of the manga story very quickly after initial publishing. The manga’s themes have also garnered a lot of attention in the West as fan scanlators picked up for translation extending pre-existing forum discussions and starting new ones at the same time.
Now under the official English name My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness, Nagata Kabi’s manga will be translated and published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment, a company specializing in producing, publishing and licensing manga, graphic novels, and youth literature.
The single volume 152-page My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness manga will be priced at $13.99 with a release date set for the 6th of June of this year. You can read the official synopsis of Nagata Kabi’s work on the book’s Seven Seas Entertainment web page.
A hugely popular comic on Pixiv, My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness offers readers an honest and heartfelt look at one young woman’s exploration of her sexuality, mental well-being, and growing up in our modern age.
