Strange is Yuruco Tsuyuki’s debut comic collection that narrates about a couple of men, who meet, help, and understand each other, and of course, support each other as well. This comic collection was presented at Comitia, a great Japanese fair of original self-produced comics. It stars Towa Araki (from Netflix’s First Love) and Durian Lollobrigida (from EGOIST), who is also known as Masaki, is a Japanese drag queen and actor — which depicts the story of Odeko-chan, a shy high school student who goes to cram school and spends his days immersed in studying, meets Kuma, a crying drag queen in a park at night.

Watch its 30-second official teaser here:

 

Odeko-chan (Towa Araki) is a high school student who goes to cram school because he doesn’t know what else to do with himself. He’s not particularly interested in anything, much to the dismay of his mother, who wishes he would play baseball or something. On his way home from cram school, Odeko-chan finds a lady’s shoe and tries to return it to its owner, a tall woman on a swing in the nearby park. This tall woman is actually a gay man named, of course, Kuma (Durian Lollobrigida), who works in a joso hostess club. Kuma is crying about a client being mean to him and when Odeko-chan sticks around to offer some kind words rather than being freaked out by Kuma’s appearance, the two end up in a strange sort of friendship. And it’s that friendship that sorts their individual troubles out, a theme that runs through the entire collection.

 

‘Strange’ is under the direction of Ken Ochiai and is slated to be released this coming spring in Japan.
