The woman who showed so much interest in Yoshino (when she was wearing a boy s school uniform) in volume one reappears with her boyfriend, and becomes a mentor and friend to the two children. And the kids go on a class trip that is a rite of passage Shuichi would rather pass up. Shuichi is called a faggot by another boy, and the dramatic nature in which Saori comes to Shuichi s defense leads the two to discover a shared fondness forAnne of Green Gables. But despite his propensity to cry (a propensity noted repeatedly by his more outgoing sister), Shuichi finds strength and courage he didn t know he had. A sophisticated work translated with sophistication by veteran translator and comics scholar Matt Thorn. "

Review quote

Shimura Takako's young figures are adorable. They look unspoiled, with their future ahead of them, which puts their struggles into greater relief.... Translator Matt Thorn's essay... provid[es] valuable information on cultural context... There is no more handsome manga than Fantagraphics' presentation of Wandering Son. --Johanna Draper Carlson
