Kyouichi's indecisive character has led him to repeatedly commit the foolish mistake of adultery. One day, Imagase, a college classmate he hasn't seen since graduation, shows up as the private detective hired by his wife to investigate his infidelity. Imagase, however, proposes a deal. He won't tell Kyouichi's wife about his affairs, but, for compensation, he makes an unbelievable demand: "I want your body in exchange..."

There will always be a manga with very obscure scenarios. Those with extensive narrations and dialogues that leads you in deep thought and reflection. Male homosexual relationships are intriguing, Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume wo Miru is intriguing.

It is unmistakably a mouse trap.

If you ever thought reading one of the most decent stories that includes homosexual relationships, you may take this one into consideration. That which interweaves the art, characters and plot into a flawless lacework with no strings unwoven.

The story technically revolves around Kyouichi, a married man with lots of adultery in it. And it seems that these little mistakes he has gave a read more

I usually steer clear of yaoi. I do read adult mangas from time to time and I don't mind yuri, but I'd gag at the thought of gay men sex scenes.

Yet, I dare to say Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume wo Miru is by a long shot the best adult manga I've read and one of the few (adult or non-adult) mangas that do portray what could be a real homossexual relationship.

Questioning and exploring one's sexuality was something I've always been fond of. I believe sexual identity is a grey and foggy area where nothing should absolutely labeled or defined.

Don't be fooled by the summary: The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese doesn't follow your usual coercion -> love plotline. What distinguishes this manga from many others in the genre is that it takes the usual BL tropes and adds realism. Coercion isn't romantic. Lust is lust. Straight men don't magically turn gay after one homosexual encounter. The characters in the series are flawed, complex, and very human.

(Admittedly, Imagase is a bit of a weak point - I couldn't warm to him at all, even though he does rise above the usual stalker character archetype. A bit.)

From the synopsis alone, The Cornered Mouse Dreams of read more

Some people are offended by the natures of the characters of the manga, but I wasn't at all. It was honest and enjoyable. The characters were brilliantly developed and the inner turmoil, melodrama, and angst factor were truly there. The best part of the manga is definitely in its character appeal. We can easily relate ourselves with the two main protagonists. They aren't fabrications of shoujo excitement, but they have true faults, but they're honest about them. Doubt, confusion, trust, conformity, the search for true love, what we want from our lives is all on the page for you. From the title, to the plot, read more
