Kaijuni natta gei (A gay man who turned into a monster)
Gay high school student ARASHIRO Takashi has been bullied, but tolerated thanks to his homeroom teacher KURODA. ARASHIRO has a secret crush on KURODA but one day overhears KURODA’s discriminatory negative comments on gays. In despair, ARASHIRO turns into a monster. This absurd transformation story portrays a lack of understanding, the seemingly innocent discrimination, and the students’ growth through self-acceptance after suffering.
