Summary and Preview

I.S. (Pronounced Aiesu in Japanese) is not your everyday manga. This manga strictly deals with cases of intersexuality. I.S. stands for Inter Sexuality. This manga deals with very serious issues concerning intersexual people. The pain they go through, the troubles they confront, and ultimately their inability to reproduce and even find a partner who will accept them as they are - It's all there in a form of manga. The series is consisted of cases, each dealing with different people - although some cases are much longer and more dramatic than others.
