Both are BL manga in which one of the main characters is a struggling mangaka so they feature the same themes of deadlines, overwork and artistic expression. I Can't Even Breathe Without You is cuter while in Ikezu Kareshi no Otoshikata the relationship is rocky but.

I Can't Even Breathe Without You is very much like one of the couples in Onodera. These are BL manga focused on managaka who rely completely on someone to take care of them, the level of dependency being extreme in both cases. Not only that but the daily routine of manga production is an important theme with deadlines always around the corner and overwork.
