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

NEWS: Adding Movies & TV to the blog!

Hey all,

Not sure if anyone’s there or cares,  but you may have noticed a new category and list called “TV and Movies” and wanted to inform everyone on what’s to come!

Is this related? I don’t know. I don’t care.

After speaking with a friend about lesbian movies and TV dramas, we liked them the way we like our Shoujo-ai, not porn. We then realized how hard it is to even FIND said Movies and TV Dramas, and how few there are. Sometimes we’d have no choice but to watch whatever was there.

There’s also the matter of how I would rate the movies. Because they’re so rare, sometimes I take what I can get and although they may not be entirely good.

So, in order to help out the community, I decided to add this addition to the blog. Some are rare gems, some are not so rare. Some are good and some are bad. I will be separating them for you, warning you, and hopefully not wasting your time.

In addition, there are actually very few Japanese lesbian movies (in my books, few) so I will be expanding it to simply “asian”. This will include Chinese, Korean, tagalog or singaporean films as well (if they exist). I will only be doing this for the Movie and TV section, NOT for anime and Manga.

I will only be reviewing and linking those that are English subbed. If it’s not subbed in English,  I will not review it or link it.

At the same time, links to these movies are rare. So I’m trying to get a hold of the download/digital versions of these movies and will either provide a download link, or provide a streaming link for you to watch. As long as I am active on this blog, I will be fixing those links as well. WITH english subs. Please bare with some reviews, they may not have links or downloads simply because they are too hard to find, but don’t you worry I will be working on it and trying to track them down.

If you have any movies pertaining to these (NOT PORN PLZ. But R-rated material I’m cool with), I am more than happy to download and review it for you, and providing a reliable link to the public.

As for rating system, some will be standard such as Yuri rating (blanket term I use for amount of lesbian content) and Overall rating, however because it is film, I am currently thinking about adding another rating system to it.  I will update this post on the new rating system once I have it ironed out.

I hope you enjoy what I have coming! I know I will!

UPDATE: I have decided not to add any other scales to my reviews. If I decide to change this (probably unlikely) then I will change it, but until then I’m going to leave it as Yuri + Overall.
