Love can prevail beyond the Gates of Death
Doing a Japanese TV show about a school girl who has AIDS sure is risky, specially in the time it was made,in 1998, but for me it really worked. I really cared a lot for what was happening with Masaki, the protagonist, and her love interest, music composer Keigo.More than anything, this was a magical love story between 2 broken souls, the girl infected with AIDS after selling her body in order to buy concert tickets to see Keigo, and Keigo, the rich and lonely man,who composed music but didn't had no one to love until Masaki shows up.Masaki suffered the consequences of having unprotected sex, and even that later on Keigo learns about Masaki s problems,he still stayed with her until the very end.
This story is about love and compassion, as Masaki was trying to live her life even if she knew that she didn't had enough time to live.Very touching,very inspirational.The music performed by SENS also managed to provide the adequate atmosphere of uncertainity and confusion.
Even that what Masaki did was wrong, she could understood what life is about and she did her best to fulfill it, no mater what. In the end, a love story that told us that even with problems and obstacles,love can prevail beyond the gates of Death. I really loved this show!
