Known in Japan as "Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume o Miru", The Cornered Mouse Dreams Of Cheese is Josei manga by Setona Mizushiro.

Kyouichi's indecisive character has led him to repeatedly commit the foolish mistake of adultery. One day, Imagase, a college classmate he hasn't seen since graduation, shows up as the private detective hired by his wife to investigate his infidelity. Imagase, however, proposes a deal. He won't tell Kyouichi's wife about his affairs, but, for compensation, he makes an unbelievable demand: "I want your body in exchange..."

In its direct sequel, The Carp On The Chopping Block Jumps Twice, Kyouichi is now divorced from his wife and carrying on a tenuous, homosexual relationship with Imagase. He has even become accustomed to having sex with Imagase every day. However, when Tamaki, a young coworker with a crush on Kyouichi, appears on the scene, it might be the beginning of the end for Kyouichi and Imagase.
