Beautiful bittersweet story!

Short, sweet story with its sore painful moments. Couldn't help but cry a lot and I will cry again and again whenever I remember the last part and the art the mangaka used to illustrate those moments, really good job wrapping it up with those scenes.

A rare 10 points for me and yes I CRIED. I like happy endings and I read for The Fluff and this...was cheesy, had fluff, and the feels... was quite real. A real life happy ending. A pity it wasn’t longer and more detailed. It feels like a happy life’s resume and I WOULD LOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY.

I think a length of only 1 volume does not fit for this type of manga. It almost never works, unless you're a genius in writing, but sadly it's not the case with this one. It was rushed and lacking, there was simply not enough room to unfold the characters' inner thoughts, emotions, doubts, development, nothing. The whole manga felt like it was just a long trailer for something big, that was never written... It was simply unsatisfactory for me. Which is a shame, because the characters were interesting and likeable (even Akira), their dynamic and chemistry worked well, there were several heart-warming and cute scenes, plus the art is really pretty, but in the end it was too rushed.

This manga ,after finished reading it,left me with bitter and sore feeling,specially last 2 chapters...
I wont read it again for sure,but it was good manga for those who dont mind bitter sore ending...the beginning of the manga was so bright and refreshing,but last 2 chapters were like you reading another manga(it was like a trap), The ending almost put me in to tears and suffocated ,its expected as life goes on , So we dont want to see how it ll end (it made me each time I read a yaoi manga remember "oh those couple will end like in " Life Senjou no Bokura" , we dont wont to see what it is obvious for life how it ll go and end...she didnt bring anything new but she made us picture it which is Suck....
Didnt like how the manga ka was unfair with Uke ,The seme was bastard.
From chapter 1 to 3 so pure and refreshing,wont read again last 2 chapters for sure which were realistic,sore and somehow frustrating
Bad encounter from the uke side,wished he(the uke) didn't follow the line maybe his life would had been better...this manga made me dont want to read yaoi for the time being ,as the last pages of the last chapter of the uke keep repeating in my mind and made me depressed ...
My rating for the art and somehow for the first 3 chapters

NOO WHY AM I CRYING SO MUCH!! T______T This needs a tragedy tag, I didn't expect to be clobbered by so many onion-cutting ninjas. Such a beautiful, bitter-sweet story.

it's cheesy, but I can't help but admire how lovely this manga is in its portrayal of a couple from start to finish.

Sweet and simple, don't expect too much depth. I absolutely love the way the characters are characterized in the beginning of the manga. I wish they continued this trend through the entire manga, but I understand the limitations it had. Some of the drama had to be simplified, so it looks really silly and shallow. It also got resolved very quickly. This manga is an entirely uncomplicated and idealistic look at how people grow and how true love endures. Of course, the ending made me cry, especially in how it ended how the manga started. Lovely stuff.

Good, not great

I saw that Life Senjou no bokura is getting jdrama this year and, after reading coments here, I guess I was expecting some incredible, believable and hard-hitting manga about two men in love. What I got was... honestly not bad but not great either.
For me, the sex scenes were kind of unnecessary. Aside from one, they were there just because. But that can be up to personal preference.
Overall, I would say I enjoyed the story up to the second chapter, after that the emotions were lacking.
So as long as you don't go into reading this with thinking it's some life changing experience, I guess you'll enjoy it.

There are many cliches to point out. The relationship was pretty off but very heart-warming. I kinda relate to Nishi as I always have imaginations and was naive even in my teens. Okay for Ito, he at first thought of being rejected by Nishi in their late teens. But in their late twenties, it’s his turn to be the one rejecting him bc of his amateur behavior. Like make up your mind! At one part where he noticed the kid, could that be his child from his ex wife?
I never read a story involving older couple in same sex relationship before. It’s un normal but heartbreaking at a same time of what happened. It’s a bit like the end Titanic where it end tragically but they once again live happily ever after.

Gonna keep this comment nice and sweet so y'all can just head on over and read this immediately.

Read it because it ain't cliche. It's beautiful, sweet and so stupidly heartbreaking you'll call yourself stupid in a happy way for crying so much in the end.

Trust me. You'll thank the world for keeping you alive just reading this one.
