A review by magicalmartha
Not Your Idol, Vol. 2, by Aoi Makino


I received an advance copy of this book from Netgalley, and will continue to request this series as long as Netgalley will let me.

Not Your Idol continues to thrill while also taking on the immense task of untangling issues of gender identity, feminism, gender expectations, and interpersonal relationships. Despite the issues being presented from a distinct Japanese point of view, American readers will find much to relate to here, as Nina and Hikaru figure out their relationship to each other and to themselves.
