Coming-of-age story with LGBT+ characters launched in 2015

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Yuhki Kamatani's Shimanami Tasogare manga. The first single volume is slated for May 7, 2019.

Seven Seas describes the story:

Not only is high schooler Tasuku Kaname the new kid in town, he's also terrified that he's been outed as gay. Just as he's contemplating doing the unthinkable, Tasuku meets a mysterious woman who leads him to a group of people dealing with problems not so different from his own. In this realistic, heartfelt depiction of LGBT+ characters from different backgrounds finding their place in the world, a search for inner peace proves to be the most universal experience of all.

The manga began in the first issue of Shogakukan's seinen magazine Hibana in March 2015, and moved to the Manga One app when Hibana ended serialization last August. The third compiled volume shipped in November.

Kamatani also drew the Nabari no Ou manga, which inspired a television anime in 2008.
