For mature manga with an homosexual theme look no further. Both The Cornered Mouse and Koi ga Bokura offer complicated emotional states in a realistic setting that allows for the characters to shine in all their glory. The angst is justified by social pressure and individual shortcomings so that it is believable. Detailed artwork reinforces the detailed twists and turns that make these titles such remarkable if not always easy reads.
