I started this drama with very high expectatives after seeing the cast, and because it was written by Sakamoto-sensei, who has written most of my favorite dramas. I must say that, while this wasn't exactly what I expected, it was quite good.

The story isn't something that we haven't seen before, but it's well told. The first episode was fantastic but, sadly, the next few episodes don't live up to it. The read more second half is much more entertaining. As always, Sakamoto-sensei's dialogues are beautiful, and he's arguably the top screenwriter in Japan.

Most of the cast was great. Takahata Mitsuki's performance was probably the best, specially in the forth and fifth episodes. But I also need to comment on Arimura Kasumi's acting. I really don't understand why people dislike her so much. She did a GREAT job in this drama, she's probably the best after Takahata. Anyone who has seen this and Biri Gal knows that she's a pretty good actress when she has the right projects. Kora Kengo and Nishijima Takahiro were good too. I was really sad about Sakaguchi Kentaro and Morikawa Aoi, because most of their scenes felt like filler material, and they really didn't have much to do beside a few great scenes.

The music was solid, but not extraordinary or anything.

Overall, I think this is one of Sakamoto-sensei's weakeast dramas so far, but it's still better than most of the romantic dramas released nowadays, I recommend it to those looking for a slightly bittersweet slice-of-life romantic drama.

First of all this is my first time reviewing in MDL since i created an account a long time ago, hopefully with this review i expect to help someone out there who still as doubts to watch, (Love That Makes You Cry) in japanese,
(Itsuka Kono Koi wo Omoidashite Kitto Naite Shimau).

Story: In my opinion, the story was very consistent, well written, with a meaningful romance story and very well portrayed read more by the casting actors.
The main focus of the show is the romance story but this show can also offer a journey with hardships sorrounding love, happiness, work and life objectives.
All characters contribute to the storyline, and there's no character left behind without helping the story progress.
While i watched the story was depressing, dramatic, pleasing and very cute at times.
I experienced a lot of moments throught the show where I was frustrated how the story progressed in many ways that i can't spoil, but i can say the story was well told and the characters were very well portrayed with their own point of views, thoughts and emotions, so i had no choice to care for them, but that is just me enjoying the show in my own way.

Acting: I feel like in this case everyone's perspective on each character will be different based on your own morals, preferences, etc... So what i can say is that i loved the acting and the casting, i think everyone was outstanding in portraying their own role.

Music/Overall: Pretty decent OST so nothing to special about it.

Overall: I like every aspect in this show, also i gave it 9 out of 10, because i don't consider this to be a masterpiece, but it was very well done and very well portrayed. I recommend it to those looking for a deep story with Romance/Drama/Slice of life.

The leading man reminds me of Kang Ma-Ru;s character who atones himself of the mistake he did in the past. How he also sacrifices his life and happiness for people he loves. If you fell in love with Kang Ma-Ru you might also fell in love with Soda Ren.

Written by the same author so the small little things you see in LTMYC, like the small conversations they would have even though pointless but makes the drama even more compelling, will also be in Soredemo, Ikite Yuku. There will also be a romance between the two main characters. Oto's mom is playing one of the main characters and ofcourse, Eita which is also going to be the other main character and her partner in this drama.

    I liked it. I personally like romance that is mixed with slice of life. The cinematography is somewhat dark which compliments the theme. I appreciated the humbleness of the characters and the main character's optimistic view. If you're not a fan of angst, then I would not recommend this~

    Could someone please give me a spoiler, how is the romance in this drama? (I've been told that this is somewhat dark, but I'll watch anything if there's at least some good romance mixed in. :D)

      The romance is heartwarming, I'd say. The lead couple is like kindred spirits; two very gentle misfits who are stuck with harsh life, found warmth and strength in each others' presence. The drama has some heavy undertones but the romance itself is not dark at all.

    While watching this drama, I kept searching for a romcom, just comedy, or something thrilling that would let me escape from this seriousness.

      I like dark... but dragging? Is it the kind of dragging that's boring?

      It just didn't fit my taste, but if you like melodrama, I guess it would be alright.

    If you don't like slice-of-life romance so you would not love this because the storyline is flat and has a slow pace. But if you're into meaningful, carefully-made and full of metaphors stories then this is for you. I love every scene, every moment and dialogue in this. It'd been long time since I could find a romance drama that I love.

    I want to watch this because of Kengo Kora, but the plot doesn't seem that interesting.
