''The Heart of Thomas'' is one of the earliest BoysLove manga (its creator, MotoHagio, is a contemporary and friend of Creator/KeikoTakemiya, together with whom she is known as a pioneer of the genre). The story starts with a letter from the eponymous Thomas to the young man he loves, confessing his feelings and the desire to have a place in his beloved's heart. Juli, to whom the letter was addressed, appears to be indifferent to it all. However, his world was shaken further by NewTransferStudent Eric, a boy with looks identical to Thomas. The two clash with each other almost immediately and [[DarkAndTroubledPast many hidden problems]] are revealed.
