When high school student Tetsu Iwaoka learns the wish of his lonely classmate Mogumo, "Please give me friends who will understand me", he thinks he knows the perfect place. He invites Mogumo to work at his family's maid café, and while Mogumo is excited to start, there's just one problem: it's a "girlyboy" café, and Mogumo isn't a girl or a boy.
Fukakai na Boku no Subete Wo is a 2018 manga by Kata Konayama about finding those who accept you for who you truly are.
This series features examples of:
- Ambiguously Gay: Tetsu starts to develop feelings for Mogumo, but is unsure how to label his attraction, because Mogumo isn't a a guy or a girl. He hadn't identified as gay before, but hadn't shown any attraction to girls either.
- And Then What?: Kotone implies this to Tetsu after he admits that he has feelings for Mogumo.Kotone: You and Mogu-chan are listed as the same sex on your family registers so you can't get married in this country. But he and I are undoubtedly a boy and a girl. In that case, which of those would be the happier choice for Mogu-chan?
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Suzu and Ten both make rather pretty girls, though they are both cis men who just like wearing feminine clothing.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The three original café maids: Ten, Suzu, and Mei, in that order.
- Childhood Friend: Kotone is implied to be this for Mogumo.
- Closet Key: Though she already internally identified as a girl, it was Mogumo's hiring that allowed Mei to realize she was allowed to consider herself a girl, and not just a girlyboy. Encouragement from the café's other employees also helped.
- Mogumo is also this for Tetsu, who had always just considered himself an ally to his sister and the café's employees, but never thought that he might be queer before his crush on them.
- Cool Big Sis: Satori is this for Tetsu, as well as the other café employees, in a way.
- Mogumo also sees Kotone as this, calling her "Koto-nee", using Japanese Sibling Terminology, but its clear Kotone herself sees something more.
- Does Not Like Men: Kotone
- First-Episode Spoiler: That Mogumo is nonbinary. It's a surprise to all the other characters, but necessary to reveal to describe the premise.
- Friendless Background: Mogumo, as one can infer from their wish in their introduction; realistically, it can be very difficult to find people who will understand nonbinary genders, and their classmates' behavior wasn't very indicative of them being open-minded.
- Gayngst: Kotone's misandry and somewhat Yandere nature towards Mogumo is revealed to be a result of her having to hide her homosexuality for so long.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Mei was initially this towards Mogumo for being able to say that they weren't a boy or a girl, while Mei felt she needed to hold on to her assigned gender even though she is a girl. Explains why she was so defensive when Mogumo didn't want to call themself a "girlyboy".
- Kotone is also this towards Tetsu, who she sees as turning Mogumo "gay" and stealing them away from her.
- Innocently Insensitive: Mogumo asks Suzu if he is a "homo" when they first meet him. Mei immediately corrects them, telling them that the word can be offensive and shouldn't be used. Mogumo clearly meant no harm and immediately apologizes.
- Transgender: Mogumo is this, being nonbinary, and Mei realises herself to be trans too. Satori is also a trans woman, but doesn't seem to be transitioning.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Suzu and Ten.
