Even those these mangas are totally different in setting and subject, they both are really poignant and sweet. They both make you feel warm and fuzzy :) Oh, and they're both yaoi so the tension between the two men in both mangas is whether or not their love is requited
Rules and No Touching at All are very realistic romance stories of homosexual love. Without borrowing from cliches they offer a powerful balance betweem drama and daily life in such a way that attests to a genuine desire to spin tales that could very well happen. These are manga that do away with flourishes to get to the heart of matter, to develop relationships between characters that are highly believable. This is slice of life at its best and romance at its most moving.
