Must-Read Boys’ Love Manga and Manhwa this 2023

All love stories deserve to be told. This Pride Month, expand your library and celebrate the beauty of queer relationships. Here are some of the highly recommended BL manga and manhwa that you can start reading.

Tomorrow, Make Me Yours
Boys Love Manga and Manhwa-Tomorrow, Make Me Yours

Who does not love high school romances? In this series, Kaoruko Miyama tells the story of Yuki Matsumiya, a timid boy who fell in love with the most popular boy in his new high school class. As if hearing the secret whims of his heart, Hayato Izumida befriends him, and before they knew it, their easygoing friendship blossomed into something greater than infatuation.

Tomorrow, Make Me Yours is a beautiful contemporary manga that courageously tackles gossip, drama, and dilemmas faced in school—where most get their first experience of romance.

Two Sizes, Too Small
Boys Love Manga and Manhwa-Two Sizes, Too Small

If you want to skip those mind-boggling series and just want a refreshing read, then Two Sizes, Too Small is the way to go. Indonesian BL comic artist Mizore introduces a vibrant art style in this manhwa that is difficult to resist.

As per the synopsis, this manhwa tells the adorable love story of a gentle giant (Ben) who meets a small ball of energy (Keaton). Delving into the delightful world of contrasting heights, this manga explores the endearing ups and downs of being tall and small—and the heartwarming tale of how the paths of the tall, broad nerd and veterinarian student of below-average stature intertwined in the cutest and most unexpected ways.

Confessions of a Shy Baker

Boys Love Manga and Manhwa-Confessions of a Shy Baker

It’s not every day that you get to read a BL that openly discusses discrimination, particularly when pursuing passions and career paths. Released last month, Confessions of a Shy Baker follows the story of Toshimitsu Yamamura, the passionate owner of a thriving real estate company who has a secret talent for crafting mouthwatering and healthy snacks in his free time.

Yamamura’s life began to take off when his coworker approached him with the idea of advertising their agency as LGBT-friendly. Though terrified by the thought that this may out him as gay, his boyfriend Gonta inspired him to have faith, be of help to those facing discrimination in the industry, and bravely face the discomfort to make an impact in this world—one sweet treat at a time.

Manner of Death
Boys Love Manga and Manhwa-Manner of Death

Another BL manga creator came out of their comfort zone by producing another phenomenal series that meticulously combines intense thrills with romance. Manner of Death follows the story of skilled coroner Dr. Bunnakit, who examined the dead body of his childhood friend after she committed suicide. Through a series of perfectly woven events, he met the young lecturer named Tan, who offered help to get to the bottom of this mystery.

As the title suggests, the manga is a complex murder mystery that leaves readers on the edge of their seats with every panel read. This is probably one of the interesting BL series that does not highlight much on same-sex romance, but more on how love evolves when danger and abuse of power are involved.

Puppy Love
Boys Love Manga and Manhwa-Puppy Love

If you love dogs, then you’ll surely fall head over heels for this BL manga series! Tsuchida Haru’s Puppy Love is a relatable story of an overworked and underpaid adult, Inukai, who has been yearning to break free from his mundane routine but unfortunately lacks the courage to tender his resignation. Seeking solace, he finds himself visiting a pet shop, where the adorable puppies and warmhearted staff member named Hoshi become his source of inspiration.

What seemed to be a meet-cute trope takes an unexpected turn when Hoshi makes a strange declaration that he is the dog Inukai saved years ago.


Quite a good read, right? Let the thrilling and inspiring plots of BL manga and manhwa series sweep you away into a world where love knows no limits and diverse relationships take center stage. These incredible stories defy societal norms and offer a refreshing perspective on love, acceptance, and personal growth. Get ready to explore a realm filled with passion, self-discovery, and authentic connections that will leave you captivated and inspired. Start reading now!
