This drama is probably one of the most under-rated ones amongst Japanese fare. A very touching story of a terminally ill but spirited young girl who rediscovers what life is all about. People doubting Mao chan's acting prowess should watch this and shut up. She has single-handedly carried the burden of the story in this drama. The relationship between the brother-sister duo is portrayed with sensitivity, ditto with the love story. The read more side characters like Banba san or any of the brother's friends or the doctors have given fitting support to the leads. Must watch if you like emotional, slightly slow-paced dramas.

This is a drama that really is hard to rate. Why? Simply because I was never crazy about the lead female, Mio. She drove me crazy. Her brother, Kazu, was wishy-washy but if if look at the fact that they portrayed those characters as they should have, they were great. I loved the little Doctor You had to suspend belief that someone so young could be a heart surgeon but then I've read more pretty much have gotten used to that in JDramas that I've watched. The story was nicely done in showing a young woman with an illness wanting to see her brother for possibly the last time. As far as the end, still contemplating that. But one thing has bothered me. Why was this the first time in 10 years that she had seen her brother?
