After no less than one million years (it's true, I counted), Rain Volume 6 is finally out and available for purchase!

Find Volume 6 here -
Find all the individual books here -

Volume 6 is the longest book to date, and covers chapters 34 through 38. It also features two bonus chapters this time: one at the beginning to lead into everything else, and one at the end to cap it off. I worked very hard on this, and I hope you'll enjoy it. ^_^

And as luck would have it, Lulu is hosting a sale right now! Use the coupon code BOOKIT15 at checkout to get 15% off of this and any other books you buy (like Volumes 1-5 if you still need them) from now through Friday!

(Also, yes, Lulu rated it 18+ for some reason. No, I don't know why. There is absolutely nothing explicit in this book. It's as PG-13 as everything else before it. I'll try to get this fixed anyway, but unless it causes problems preventing people from buying it, it's a somewhat low priority for me right now.)

I cant find volume one on lulu, is it supposed to be there or is it availible somewhere else?

Volume 1 came out before I legally changed my name so it's listed different, and Lulu's search engine is a big rigid.

You can find Volume 1 here -
Or all of the books on one page here -

Ordered immediately! I just found and binged your comic last weekend, so your timing for this is amazing! I can't wait to place all six on my shelf after a re-read!!

Also, 34-38? Does this mean another volume or two?
Emily 24th Feb 2023, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
I'm pretty sure there'll be seven volumes total.
Crownless_Erica 25th Feb 2023, 9:42 AM edit delete reply
That would make sense, that'll make it a packed volume if that's going to hold 39-44 plus if there's any extra content!

Sure hope so! :)

So glad I found this comic and finished it when I did. Start to finish and buying all the books in about a week.

What a wonderful story, thank you so much for all the work you put in to it.

Hi. I was recently exposed to this webcomic by a new friend. I'm currently on page 762, but wanted to leave a comment here at the latest page. When I saw you say there "this has to stop," it just brought to mind what I'm going through right now. So, here it is.
I'm an American citizen. I fled America last year due to everything going on. It just seems very unsafe. I'm in Germany right now, as an asylum-seeker. My biggest cause of stress is that the bureaucrats here, like so many other people around me, will think that America is a very safe place for us trans people, and therefore will deport me back. I came so very close to becoming another name on the list. This extreme measure was my alternative.

Reading this comic, even with all the deep lows it has, is very comforting. Rain (at least by page 762) is surrounded by wonderful people. They're all helping each other deal with the difficult and painful situations they're all in. It makes me so happy to see these kids be there for each other, and learning about things that I never got to learn when I was young. Had I truly understood the concept of "non-binary" as a thing, maybe I would have been able to accept what I am and start transitioning way earlier. I only even finally understood the difference between sex and gender in my late 20's, if not early 30's (currently 37). It pleases me so much that youth today are learning about this concept much more now. But it also tears me apart that things are almost more dangerous than ever.

I weep for the people I left behind, that I felt unsafe in America but so many of my LGBT siblings are fighting the war I am not strong enough to fight, myself. But to end on a positive note, I feel *so much* safer and happier here in Germany than I ever did in America. And this comic, through my investment in it, is definitely contributing to that. So, thank you. Thank you so very much. Vielen Dank.

My copy of vol 6 came in just as I was finishing re-reading Vol 5 in beautiful manga format! Can't wait to complete the set!!

I just finished reading the entire comic and I just wanted to write a note to thank you so very much for this absolutely amazing and wonderful story you have created.

I started my transition very late in life. (on HRT for almost 2 years now and I am 49) and I wish I had something as wonderful as this earlier in my life to help explain all the subtleties of gender and gender identity.

Thank you so very much for an amazing story and for providing an amazing way to explain it all to younger LGBTQIA+ folks out there who are questioning things and wanting help. I will be buying all the volumes as soon as possible for my collection as well as to share with my two adorable nieces if they wish to read them.

I received my vol. 6 yesterday, and I've been reading and rereading it.

Of course, now I'm impatiently waiting for vol. 7! Maybe by Christmas?
Allison (not that one) 24th Mar 2023, 8:44 PM edit delete reply
I'm six weeks post-op, and dilating (and, until recently, the pain) have been soaking up all my time and energy, to the point that I can't even think anything challenging. I'm exhausted and just don't have much mind left.

So I've been rereading Volume 6 (and sometimes earlier ones) the way a small child will request their favorite bedtime story over and over, as something reliable with a happy ending and comforting in a challenging time. It's a difficult time for me (even though I've never doubted that transition and SRS were the right thing), and I just want to read about friendships and people caring about and for one another, which Vol 6 in particular has a lot of, especially chapter H.

tl;dr: thank you, Jocelyn, for Vol 6 and for the whole comic series.

I just heard about/found out about this series from Jessie Gender on YouTube - Im in book 1 and was thinking about buying all 6 (I dont' like reading in digital format) but some of the revews say the pages are all back and white - will there be color printed editions at some point or boxed set?
