Tokyo Babylon

Image from CLAMP's Tokyo Babylon, of Saburu and Seishiro embracing, with Subaru facing the camera, looking at us over Seishiro's shoulder.

One of CLAMP’s most enduring and resonate series, Tokyo Babylon is a sophisticated look at Tokyo itself, as well as the interior lives of the people who live there, all wrapped in a mostly-episodic urban fantasy. The series elevates BL tropes while digging into some of CLAMP’s deeper themes, and is still wildly discussed to this day.
