Both mangas include a pairing between men of different ethnicity. In OtK, though, it starts out as a slavery bond in which the seme owns the uke, while in IIR it is always a mutual love relationship.
Foreign love affair, what more can I say, "Ikoku Irokoi Romantan" is a bit more 'dramatic' maybe and our 'royalty' here is instead the heir to a important yakuza group, but if you’re looking for another BL where the culture and social gap are conflicting forces in a love born from a very short meeting, then it's the same bloody thing.
Both mangas contain very prideful ukes that despise being misused or ill-treated. In IIR, the uke is molested, and in Junjou the uke is picked on for his small stature and cute face. Both ukes take revenge through means of violence. Junjou, however, is a much lighter, and more humorous read.
