Ilegenes - Kokuyou no Kiseki

The island of Ilegenes has made huge technological advances in the fields of cybernetics and genetic modification, earning it the nickname the "Genetic Sodom" for veering so far off the path of nature.

Now, the boy attends an elite military university, where he plans to work his way up through the system in order to re-structure the corrupt government and destroy the black market.

Ilegenes and Aegis are sci-fi manga that take place in a dystopia in which the military have taken control. The cast consists of pretty boys caught in a world rife with injustice. In both cases a very strong bond develops between two boys; Aegis steps into actual shounen-ai territory while Ilegenes veers very close to it.

No.6 and Aegis take place in a dystopic world and feature boys who rebel against it. They are akin in their solid world building and dark themes without shying away from distubing content. 

No.6 is more consistent in tone while Aegis lapses into light hearted moments despite being equally dark but they are true soulmates in the thoughtful way in which male/male relationships are handled. These manga surpass the frequent limitations of the shounen-ai genre to produce credible and multilayered homosexual relationships.
