Love My Life is pretty easily summed up in two words: sensitive & minimalistic!
(Review complete, really? I can sleep?! jk)
I really enjoyed both the content and art style of this manga, while the style of drawing faces is possibly a little inexpressive at times, Ebine Yamaji is outright masterful in how she illustrates bodies.
I wouldn't say that it's a particularly deep dive into an understanding of homophobia and Japanese LGBT lifestyles, more a slow slice of life that places you gently into the characters' lives and allows you to experience a small piece of it together with them. The focus is on love, family
(whether that's a nuclear family, found-family, or a couple planning a future together) and sensuality/sexuality, so it's important that the main character's love for her girlfriend and her somewhat unusual family really comes through! The reflective style of the manga was a really great choice on this front.
The characters really were the strong point for me. The author does a fantastic job of very naturally providing a basic outline of character motivations without throwing the reader into chapters and chapters of exposition for exposition's sake. We're told exactly what we need to know about each character. Minimal in a very very good way!
Love My Life is a horizon-broadening manga for those familiar with yuri, and perhaps an interesting entry point to manga for those who are perhaps a little more familiar with western LGBT comics.
I highly recommend this if you're looking for a mature and relaxing LGBT-related read!
