The main reason I watched it is because of TEPPEI KOIKE (Lovely Complex) and TAMAKI HIROSHI (Nodame Cantabile).

Since I don't know anything about the plot, I just watch it our of pure luck and curiosity. Thinking it now, I AM GLAD I DID.

It is one of the films Japan can take pride of. The theme about friendship is really something anyone would love to watch. And this film showcases how far can you sacrifice yourself for a friend and how can a friend change your life for the better.

If you have watched and liked Orthros no Inu, you will surely love its FICTIONAL content. This is dramatic but brilliance.


And for Shonen-ai lovers, you can feel the fan service here. Although only a little. :D

After watching this movie I was genuinely touched by the storyline.

Asato moves to a small run-down town to be closer to his mother, who is in a nearby jail. There he meets Takeo, a troubled guy with a dark past who gets in fights alot. Takeo discovers Asato's powers to be able to transfer pain/scars/wounds from other people unto himself. This is soon the beginning of their friendship as Asato is able to rely on his first friend. Little by little, they start making improvments in their lives.

Takeo past unravels as he tries to deal with the pain. What is it that Takeo can't let go of from his past? And why is Asato's mother in jail?

With power Asato is able to transfer pain from the people around him, but how much pain can he inflict himself?

This focuses mainly on the emotional feelings and the importance of life. This is not a movie for those expecting fast-paced action. Like I said, this is based on feelings and the meaning of friendship.
