If you've read the manga you might be a little disappointed with this theatrical version. If you haven't read the manga (or read it and want to watch this anyway) then you definitely should watch it. The romance is so beautiful and their struggles are so difficult that you can't help but scream at them.
The acting is absolutely incredible, the story is heart wrenching, and above all the story is believable. read more If you're not sure if this movie is for you watch the first 10 minutes. By the time the 10 minute mark rolls by I think you will realize how touching this movie will be. :)

Maybe I just really love young love, but I absolutely loved this movie! Yes I did cry but I knew that it was both sad and happy tears. I have gone back and forth for awhile now whether or not I should watch this movie, I finally did and I am so glad that i did :) This movie is so moving and full of warm feelings inside! I hope that you read more don't avoid watching this because it's a little sad, but I fully understand if you do as well. I hope this review helps and if it doesn't then message me and I hope that I can be of help to you :)

Both main male character avoids his girlfriend so she won't be sad when he dies. Both are very sad and emotional.

they are both similar. Kind of... also the mood is fun in both ways but also deep and w a sad ending

    I've watched this and cried. Made my cousin watch it and she cried as well. My cousin made her teacher watch it and the teacher cried the most. Well, make sure you have tissues nearby when you decide to watch it.

    After the comments here i gave this movie a Go.Kinda dissapointing,it was all to much rushed without getting any connection to the characters.I wasnt sad at all for me.But ive seen countless of good illness drama''s like 1 litre of tears and stuff.There were some funny parts though.

    A decent movie.
