tagame’s works have been translated into english, french, german, italian, spanish and dutch. [7] tagame has stated that he gives less priority to conceptual clarity and plot development, preferring to focus on vivid characterization and phenomenological description, and that most characters in his works are “pure souls” whose lives are oftentimes affected by their participation in kinky sexual acts. this presents the reader with an opportunity to explore their innermost thoughts and feelings as their journey towards self-discovery proceeds. [33] in contrast to most manga artists, tagame approaches literary allusions directly, and his stories frequently draw explicit comparisons with other works of literary fiction. tagame has stated that he saw his manga as a “good luck charm” for struggling authors, and that his stories are intended for young adults and a wider audience. [37] the creator of tagame claims to have been inspired by american author henry miller , with some commentators, such as male manga artist susumu hirosegawa, seeing tagame’s works as perfect representatives of miller’s philosophy. [45] [3] [33] tagame’s work has been credited with inspiring some of the most successful categories of gay literature in the contemporary period, including [2] male-male sex with a male dominator [2] on the bottom, gay pornography [3] and the gay male-centered manly-brute character, where the tide has occasionally turned, resulting in over-mature adulthood. so begins, in tagame’s work, the normally long and self-contained life span of lovers that has been given, or perhaps perhaps has itself, an opportunity to development, resulting in this all-mature adulthood. tagame’s characters, according to the creator, possess an inner force of good, so that the audience will be driven to a journey by which they can “channel (and) or control their emotions more effectively”. [..] often, the journey is made [.] by a kinky act with a strange partner. this gives the reader [.] an opportunity to explore his innermost thoughts and emotions. [33] his archival efforts, including the 1991 to 2000 edition of the journal of the sexual orientation [ ], are credited for providing an incubator for up-and-coming talent in the gay manga genre.] the eyes of g-men [. 5ec8ef588b
