Wandering Son. Vol. 05

By Matt (TRN) Shimura/ Thorn Takako

In the latest volume of this gentle manga, new gender-reinforcing school uniforms cause drama at the junior high school entrance ceremony!

In the latest volume of the acclaimed series about transgendered kids exploring their unfolding identities, we’ve reached a big event; the junior high school entrance ceremony. The boys wear black uniforms with stand-up collars based on mid-19th century European military uniforms and the girls wear navy blazers, tan skirts, and red ribbon neckties. Enter our heroes; Nitori-kun is forced to wear a boy’s uniform while Takatsuki-san has to wear a girl’s! Yet one girl—Sarashia Chizuru— draws stares, whispers, and pointed fingers, because this long-haired beauty is wearing a boy’s uniform. Both Nitori-kun and Takatsuki-san are awed by the girl’s courage, but Takatsuki-san is particularly vexed by their own faintheartedness. They envy more than a few other students who experience such liberty in wearing either uniform and ponder what it ultimately means about themselves. Envy and jealousy are prominent themes in Volume 5: Chiba-san is jealous of Takatsuki-san, for whom Nitori-kun still carries a tortch. Maho envies Anna-chan’s professionalism as a model. And Chii-chan’s loyal sidekick, Shiri Momoko, is intensely jealous of anyone in whom Chii-chan shows the slightest interest. And so our protagonists set off on the journey to adolescence….
