Seven Seas Licenses LGBT+ Manga Series Love Me For What I Am

Beyond the Binary: Seven Seas Licenses LGBT+ Manga Series LOVE ME FOR WHAT I AM


(LOS ANGELES, October 22, 2019) – Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of Love Me for What I Am by Kata Konayama, an LGBT+ manga about finding friendship and common ground at an untraditional maid café!

Mogumo is a cute but lonely high school student who just wants a few loving friends. Fellow student Iwaoka Tetsu invites Mogumo to work at his family's café for “cross-dressing boys,” but he makes an incorrect assumption: Mogumo is non-binary and doesn't identify as a boy or a girl. However, Mogumo soon finds out that the café is run by LGBT+ folks of all stripes, all with their own reasons for congregating there. This touching manga explores gender, gender presentation, and sexuality from many different angles, including the ways people are pushed to conform in a world that doesn't understand them...until the world begins to learn, one person at a time.

Seven Seas will publish the manga series Love Me for What I Am for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on June 2, 2020 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
