Saigo no Musuko (The Japanese phase means The Last Son in English) is a short story collection by Japanese writer Yoshida Shuichi. The first story is about a young man living with his transgender lover who owns a trans night club. The young man keeps an intimate-yet-isolated relationship with his trans lover, while he sometimes also sleeps with his ex-girlfriend. The young man also documents his daily life by recording it into video tapes
It's difficult to illustrate a transgender "male". A good looking one who has feminine qualities, but still can be recognized as a man. Finally I used Ezra Miller as the inspiration model.
