Yuuki Nishi spends every day walking a line between life and death. He balances just above water, always mere moments from being eaten by sharks. Akira Itou is also walking the same line. He travels across a perilous wire, suspended dozens of feet above a cavern of icy blades. The day the two meet, death seems imminent, for how can the two pass each other without falling to their doom?

Nishi and Itou are both regular players of the solo "White Line Game," and every day they meet. Supporting each other, they are able to successfully grow in skill and continue on their individual quests. But the more their shared path brings them together, the more frustrated Itou grows. They only ever meet during this game of theirs, and though it brings him happiness, Itou longs for more of the child-like Nishi. After being kissed by Nishi, Itou becomes so embarrassed that he feeds Nishi to the sharks. With regret in his heart, he is convinced that his one-sided crush now hates him.

Nishi, however, has only one regret about the encounter—and that is the sudden disappearance of Itou. When the two make amends, their perilous surroundings change and set them up to walk the white line together for the rest of their lives.

This manga has a poignant ending that resonates with me and which still replays in my mind now and then. This is a cute love story between two guys. What makes it different from other romances is that it follows the couple from high school to old age. While the majority of stories end after the characters confess and become a couple, this manga shows the trials that await a long-term relationship.

The problems which the characters face are realistic instead of cliched drama. For example, it addresses the societal pressure of having a heteronormative relationship, and feeling like a gay relationship is abnormal and just read more

Since no one did a review for this amazing manga, I will do it!

It’s my first review ever + English is not my first language, so I’m sorry for any possible mistakes.

So, this manga. WOW what a great surprise, for real. At first I wasn’t expecting much, I just thought it would be a cute cliché BL manga, but I was wrong. Even though it does have some cliché, it also has some things that I really miss in most part of the yaoi I read.

The story follows these two boys who met while playing a silly game on the street, and obviously fall read more

Life: Senjou no Bokura is the kind of story that I would totally recommend to anyone who likes BL. I read it with high expectations and I was not disappointed, just the first chapter was enough to made me think "wow, this manga is awesome".

The story is simple, but I wouldn't say it is cliche, quite the contrary, one of the points that surprised me the most is that it is very creative (especially the way they met) for a story that shows the normal life of a couple. Another point that I liked and want to mention is that this is a story read more

Wow, this manga was nothing that i was expecting. It was simply beautiful.

Basically, its about these two high school kids named Nishi and Ito and they play the white line game where if you fall of it , something bad happens. They intersect at a line, and the story begins.

Both the characters were amazing. As the clock ticks by, they grow with one another and cherish each other. However, as a gay couple, they face challenges that other normal couples don't. Ito is the one who gets the most pained and worried about such challenges and ends up hurting Nishi. The reconciliation takes a while, read more
