Reasons you might like Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare...

Gay coming of age stories. Both of these manga follow young men questioning and discovering their sexuality. While there are trials along the way, the endings are happy. Both of these series should resonate with younger people still discovering themselves and older people looking for some high school nostalgia!
