It's like the beginning and the ending of the Tokugawa reign. In addition, both of them has very good art. So if you are interested in the stories about samurai and japan, you shouldn't miss them.

Manga: Yasashii Anata...
...then you might like
Yasashii Anata...
On the surface, these two manga are quite different, seeing how Yasashii is about two guys courting each other, while WL focuses on a couple in a long term relationship. But the reason I'm making this rec is bc of how cutely both manga manage to cover the lives of two adult men, who are completely in love with each other. There are no unexpected plot twists, no tropes and cliches, and definitely nothing sexist about these characters. They're all real *men* with real reactions - a rarity in BL.

Banana Fish
Manga: Hai to Diamond
...then you might like
Hai to Diamond
While Banana Fish (BF) focuses more on mafia while Hai to Diamond(HtD) on prostitution, both have a very similar premise: -black haired Japanese boy entering a world of gangs and sex -feature a light-haired american (whose name consists of 3 letters) who is familiar with the harsh world -american has a history of prostitution and learned how to pick up a gun -american slept with mafia boss through force, which introduced them to the harsh world -involve an older brother becoming unstable (and "dead" in a way) due to some involvement from mafia -involve chinese mafia (though one of mangas it's only temporarily) -and prolly more, but this is more than enough However, HtD corrupts the Japanese boy(BF doesn't) and the series in general is more geared towards Yaoi (w/ both MC's together),whereas BF focuses on politics&drugs w/ a maybe-not-even BL tone. In my opinion, BF gives a lot more of a satisfying characterization & storytelling, but a smaller cast in HtD gave way for more steady & rounded storyline. Regardless, both are still great reads.

It is also set in the wild west, whereas Claymore is full-on medieval with sci-fi elements (a la Moorcock in some cases).

Hajimari no Niina
Hajimari no Niina started as a one-shot short story just as Hotarubi no Mori e. While the first evolved into a 4 volumes manga, the later was adapted into a movie. These two significantly have different plots and characters and yet you wonder why I'd recommend them: These are perfect examples of short, bittersweet done right. You have a supernatural occurrence in both: In HNN it is reincarnation while in HNME is spirit folklore. However, both have a tormented hero and a much younger not annoying heroine (a child actually). Make no mistake, the hero is no lolicon nor he has any romantic feelings towards the little girl, he is pure of heart. What I deeply loved about these stories is how lovely and profound is the relationship that the protagonists develop over time. It starts as friendship and it goes through the years, maturing, evolving, turning into a deeper, more complex and then, finally slow-burn romantic relationship. And because it's done in the proper way, they are both little masterpieces where you have an extremely likable hero and heroine, ready to pull out your heartstrings.

These two mangas have a more realistic and dark approach of the tropes, with which we are already familiar. The characters are complex and are actually developing throughout the story - not only the mcs but also the secondary characters. They are not perfect porcelain dolls and feel real. They, just like real people are ignorant, make mistakes, have mental scars and each have different problems in their private life.

These two mangas are on the darker than most shoujo, because of their more realistic and dark approach of tropes, making them seem as if they're josei mangas. The MCs are kind teenage girls, who meet and fall for a classmate, who are full of problems. As the mc gets familiar with the boy, their lives change as they get involved with people or conflicts, acquainted with the boy. What also distinguishes these two series from others of this genre are the complex and developing characters, not only the mcs, but also the side characters

Both maturely and sensibly deal with potentially romantic scenarios between two lost individuals of different age groups. Its an incredibly hard thing to pull off, something title's like Bunny Drop got right at the beginning but fail near the end. Both Slice of Life pieces which are enjoyable to read, and never feel out of place even with its central theme.
