| finding the beautiness of the sadness
This show is probably one of the best ever made.Is based on Aya Kito story, a girl with an incurable disease who never lost the will to get better.Erika Sawajiri plays Aya masterly, through her we can see how the upcoming disease will change her life forever and how the world she knew slowly fade away.To me one of the best things of the show is Ryo Nikishido character,Asou Haruto,A lost boy who falls in love with Aya even before to know that she was ill and after knowing he decides to stand next to her no matter what, their relation is so pure during the whole show, they don t even touch each other but you can't stop to feel the deep love that the boy feels for her. Aya's mother is played by hiroko Yakushimaru, her performance is full of love and tenderness and you can feel how deep the love between mother and daughter is...All the cast of the show is perfect and every chapter is great.. the show finds the beauty of the sadness and talks about how painful real love can be.it was the first Asian drama I have never seen and since then I have not stopped to watch dramas
