If You're in Love, Nothing Else Matters!

It's been a while since we've tackled an autobiography, over two years since we did Hanayome wa Motodanshi (which you can now buy from Seven Seas Entertainment). So for our third autobiography, we present Otokonoko Doushi Renai Chuu (Girlyboys in Love) by Kaoru Ooshima, featuring art by Fumiko Fumi. Former porn star turned author Kaoru Ooshima details his autobiographical account of his daily life as a pansexual cross-dresser and what led him into working in the adult film industry. Along the way, he meets another porn star similar to him who he calls Michelle and the two start dating.

First, I would like to point out that Kaoru identifies as male, which can be seen in the manga, as well as during interviews. Next, according to Kaoru, he and Michelle met in early 2017, and shortly thereafter started dating. Shortly after the autobiography was published in December 2017, Buzzfeed did an interview with them in January about a month later, but by the time the interview was published in February, the two had already broken up. So although they are no longer together (it doesn't look like they ever got back together at least), the book still remains as an account of both Kaoru's life and his short relationship with Michelle. If you want to read more into it, you can check out a review of the book.

So we hope you enjoy this short, but very cute story.
