FukaBoku CoverEarlier today, publisher Seven Seas took to Twitter to announce that they acquired the rights to Kata Konayama’s Love Me For What I Am (Fukakai na Boku no Subete o; FukaBoku for short). The publisher will release the title’s first volume on June 2, 2020.

Seven Seas describes Love Me For What I Am as:

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.

Kata Konayama’s Love Me For What I Am launched in the pages of Comic MeDu on June 1, 2018. The series currently spans two compiled volumes, with the latest hitting stores on July 31.
