Kaze to Ki no Uta is a must for any BL enthusiast. One could literally pick any from well-over 3000 pages of Takemiya's magnum opus, but this one, though comparatively simplistic in composition, still leaves one of the best lasting impressions on how to economically segue from reverie to reality.

Speaking of legends, this is the page that convinced me to read Zankoku despite the tragedy. Both Takemiya and Hagio excelled at emotional page composition beyond face closeups. Not to say face closeups didn't become the staple of their manga as well, esp after Takemiya's realization that the more of those she made, the better her manga sold.

Some of the pages are funny as fuck, it doesn't help that the second manga becomes a parody of itself.

>>
>>2836931
I agree that some pages aged worse than others, especially because Hagio's art can be a bit stiff. The second part had a couple of redundant characters and it could be shorter, but Ian's plotline itself was good. He was annoying but realistically so.

There's no specific tag like this afaik. Josou is still your best bet, if not, 体格 小 (small build) or 美人 攻め (pretty seme) will probably also work. That's for Jap terms, if you want to look on chilchil or sth. English is random with tagging, so no idea there.

You know I'd like to read a BL with a gay guy and a "straight" guy where the straight guy decides to give a try because he's curious but instead of jumping into sex they take it slow and slow get comfortable and do minor stuff until after dozen chapters of build up they actually have sex.

Thanat's futekiya inteview was fantastic and pretty revealing.
I didn't realize that the one-armed seme from Perfect Fit was based on Finn from Adventure Time, but Thanat being a westaboo makes sense given the vibe of her manga.

>>2837131
Pic related very much fits this mold and I'm shocked more anons don't talk about this series despite there already being like 3+ volumes.
It's about the relationship between a "straight" construction worker and a gay bartender. The humorous tone, vivacious supporting cast and even the art all are very reminiscent of Hebiko Habuyama's best works, with greater emphasis on slice of life dramas than any relationship angst. Hell, we don't actually get a full-on extended sex scene until the straight guy bottom's for the first time in Vol.3.
The first chapter is up on dex, but lamentably the scan team seems to have dropped it. If this was translated it would be an automatic rec for the bin.

No translations yet, and since it’s published in a lesser known BL magazine I think we’ll have to wait a good while. You can get the less censored version on cmoa for no extra cost.

Alternatively, the mangaka actually posted the entire first chapter on their twitter if you want a preview.

High school kid has crush on friend, so he goes to Shinjuku gay district and loses his virginity to a bisexual guy 9 years his senior. First volume focuses on the kid and his undefined relationship with bi guy and his unrequited feelings toward the friend.

The second volume focuses on the friend discovering his bisexuality after he goes to Shinjuku and patronizes a male prostitute. The rest of the series switches between these two couples.

Yes, it does do that annoying trope were even the side characters end up with each other, but it actually gives adequate justification and treats the subject matter of latent homolust seriously. It doesn’t just read like a naked trope.

Unfortunately it stumbles at the end of volume 3, and the sequel mangas just careen off a cliff.

Damn was Zetsubou ni Nake a mess. The plot is a melodrama sped up 4x, but with really nice art and sex scenes. I have fondness for imperfect series so I didn't hate it, but it's objectively not well written. It shares a lot with concurrent Kono kiss wa kiji ni dekinai by Nishimoto Rou also in onBlue, where the nicely drawn sex scenes get glued with messy plot and inconsistent characterization.
