Ah yes, you’ve all seen this poster haven’t you?

The story “love my life” follows Ichiko Izumaya (the slightly more feminine one on the right) and her girlfriend Eri Joujima (the boyish one on the left) who are in a relationship together. Ichiko decides to come out to her father, who also turns out to be gay, who informs her that her mother who had passed, was also gay. Ichiko decides to meet her mothers lover, as well as work out both her and eri’s relationship with exams coming up.

Overall, yes, very heavy gay content. Almost no straight pairings exist. The acting is….quite terrible but then again, it IS japanese (not that I’m saying necessarily all japanese acting is bad….just….a lot of them……..) and storyline really is about ichiko and eri’s relationship at the end of it as well as partially how they will continue to live throughout society as a pair. It’s honestly quite boring

So I rated it on the Yuri scale quite high which impacted most of the “overall” rating, however quality of it itself was just simply cringe-worthy and incredibly boring. Although highly rated through out the lesbian community, it’s most definitely not a “must watch”, and definitely NOT worth a re-watch either.

Yuri rating: 10/10

Overall rating: 3/10

SPOILERS BELOW. YOU KNOW THE DRILL.

Ugh where do I begin with this.

It was just SO boring.

There was no real turmoil except for Eri’s father (which ended up not even impacting this at all) and even though they’re both 18, they live alone. Really the biggest turmoil was them trying not to see each other during exams so they can study. Like COME ON. REALLY?

SOOOO BORING.

At first I thought it would be cool to see her parents gay lovers, how they deal with society (like did the mothers’ lover re-marry a dude as well to hide her gayness as well?) BUT NOPE. Just boring boring boring. NOT EVEN A LOVE TRIANG FOR FUCKS SAKE.

There was absolutely NO real obstacle for them. EXCEPT FOR EXAMS. LIKE ARE YOU KIDDING ME??

And the acting. UGH THE ACTING. I CAN’T EVEN.

IS THIS FROM 1997? WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THE ACTING. SO CRINGEY. DONT TELL ME JAPANESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY ACT LIKE THIS.

By far, one of the most boring movies I’ve ever seen so far. They’re like, KIND OF nice to look at. Unfortunately this movie is highly rated in the lesbian community, so I had to give it a shot, however this was by far a terrible movie.

I couldn’t even re-watch it again. IT WAS THAT BAD.

And that totally fluff ending. UGH. NOTHING EVEN HAPPENED.

Well that’s the end of my rant today.

TL;DR: Came for gay, fell asleep instead.

Yuri rating: 10/10

Overall rating: 3/10
