    • Win Morisaki as Kimitsu, Taiji's friend
    • Shunya Shiraishi as the leader
    • Mika Akizuki as Kana
    • Harutomo Koyama as Taiji (Child)
    • Yōichirō Saitō as Taiji's father
    • Hana Kino as the old woman, a central figure in Taiji's life
    In the autobiographical comic essay, Utagawa tells the story of their childhood, suffering abuse from their mother after coming out as gay.

    Enterbrain published the book in 2013, and PHP Institute reprinted it in 2015. The manga will have a revised edition this summer.
