Book Review (sort of): My Brother’s Husband

MyBrother'sHusband

Hello friends,

My Brother’s Husband by Gengoroh Tagame is wholesome, diverse, adorable. Despite the slow pace at the start, it built up into a well written plot, that I spent most of two hours devouring. The art was cute, and I liked the real life implications within the story. Canada + Japan culture were both intriguing, and the family within the book were fun as well as amusing at times to read.

Reviewing manga is hard. This is my first official manga that I’ve read, and I’m not even sure how to pronounce it correctly. It took a while to get the hang of reading a book backwards (which is just wrong, in my opinion) and while I enjoyed the art, I felt frustrated and stifled at not having a real book. Perhaps I’m just used to real books, as opposed to manga/graphic novels/comics. I rarely read those, and only when trusted friends (beg) ask me too.

I’m definitely intrigued by this story, and liked the slow relationship build up, however, I will say that the main character is a bit off putting within the first segment. It took a bit to grow to liking him, but now he’s my favorite out of the three in the family, but all of them are equally likeable.

I shall add volume two to my tbr pile, because I’d like to see how the rest of this plays out. A slow building plot, but still fun to read, I’m giving this a 3.5 out of 5 stars, rounded up to 4.

Until next time,

Pass Me That Book.
