* [[WifeHusbandry Lover Husbandry]]: what Auguste does to Gilbert as a child comes very close to this, manipulating, torturing and warping his mind so he'll be absolutely devoted to him, "his puppet" as he calls him. The only difference is that the "lover" part seems to have been initially unintentional, and that [[{{Shotacon}} Auguste didn't wait until he was an adult]]... or wait until he was even 10 years old. There's a lot of {{Squick}} in their relationship, to say the least.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To Takemiya's earlier oneshot ''Natsu e no Tobira'' (''The Door to Summer''), in that they both revolve around 14-year-old boys at a French boarding school.

* BrokenBird: Gilbert could probably count as one. For comparison, have a look at another male example, Souma in the manga series ''SakuraGari'', which has a lot of similarities in style with ''[=KazeKi=]'', with both Souma and Gilbert having very similar backstories and behaviour (i.e. rape, trauma, death, and a ''lot'' of BreakTheCutie).

It is 1880 at Lacombrade Academy, an all-boy's boarding school in France. Serge Battour is a cheerful and kind [[NewTransferStudent new student]] who is trying to fit in with the rest of the student body, despite the taboo of his [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Gypsy heritage]], made obvious by his dark skin. However, his roommate Gilbert Cocteau- who will sleep with anyone if he can manipulate them to his advantage by doing so- is not helping the situation, especially when he makes it his personal goal to bring about Serge's downfall. [[WillTheyOrWontThey The two boys may destroy each other or come closer together.]]

''Kaze To Ki No Uta'', also known as either "''The Song of Wind and Trees''" or "''The Poem of Wind and Trees''," is a 17-volume manga series by Creator/KeikoTakemiya that was written from 1976 to 1984. It was one of the first {{shoujo}} manga to focus on a homosexual relationship between boys and the first to have sex play a major role in the story; Takemiya, along with then-roommate and fellow mangaka MotoHagio, is credited with kickstarting the shounen-ai genre (Takemiya's earlier work, "''In the Sunroom''" was the first manga to have shounen-ai elements). The series, though controversial, was able to win the prestigious Shogakukan Manga award for shojo in 1979, as well as now being regarded as a classic.
