To be honest, I'm not particularly fond of Ebine Yamaji's art. Although I have come to recognize it as a style all her own, I still have to state that it is quite unappealing.

But having said that, the manga Love My Life is still worth reading. The characters' personalities, especially Ichiko's, was given much thought. Her feelings and her thoughts are well-motivated. Her gradual maturity is interesting to read. Her realizations don't feel like expositions but more of a natural growth for her character.

The slice of life take to the topic of lesbianism and sexuality is perfect in this manga. It avoids romanticism and read more

Although the dull, unappealing art might discourage many from reading Love My Life, it does not take away from the fantastic story. The style of Love My Life actually requires a simple format and style, as it is josei and asserts a much more down-to-earth theme. Ostentatious, flowery art typical of shoujo would merely be detrimental to the book's evocative disposition. It is also very mature, and gives a deeper insight into [all] relationships, lesbian life, and discrimination of homosexuals within Japan. If you are a lesbian or simply interested in the topic of homosexual relationships, or perhaps you have a close friend or relative read more
