While working at a seaside inn with his high school buddies, Fujishiro Koji meets Kaoru Amane, a street musician. Kaoru is suffering from an incurable disease called XP (xeroderma pigmentosum), and can't be exposed to the sun. Under the sun, the two would never have met. Still, destiny brings the two together. Since the day he suddenly lost his job, Koji has lost sight of his dreams. But when he meets Kaoru, who is making positive efforts to become a singer, Koji regains his long-forgotten passion for music. (Source: TBS) Edit Translation

The courage to fulfill dreams and to live life deeply

This drama is so beautiful: if I had to describe it using only images, I would choose the sea, the night summer breeze, the moon and a guitar. It has just become one of my favourite dramas of all time.
The main character, Kaoru, is a girl who loves singing and never gives up, despite her illness and troubles: she has a very positive attitude towards life and others, she is enthusiastic and creative. On the other hand Koji, the boy she meets during her journey through music, seems introverted and a bit lost, but he is in fact very caring and his feelings are intense. They happen to meet because of music and, together with their friends, they face the hardships of growing up: despite life's unfairness, they never lose faith in dreams and passion.
This drama is not a "light" one but, as someone said in the comment section, it is very refreshing: it is like breathing a fresh nighty air. Erika Sawajiri and Takayuki Yamada did a fabulous job! They deeply portrayed their role, giving the characters a realistic vibe. I just love the strong aura which Erika was able to convey and the deep sparkling passion of Takayuki's acting. Yes, sometimes they acted kind of shy with each other, but I think their behaviour is cute!
I also have to talk about the OST: the two songs are very good and I am already playing them all the time! I wish they could play other songs too!!
Well, I really recommend this drama: it is perfect to watch when you look at the night sky :)

The next tragic story with Sawajiri Erika as the main character. The japanese are masters in inventing new, rare diseases... Though there are differently, I like it. Perhaps, I fan of drama and tragedy.

Amane Kaoru has varied life thnaks to friends. It's a pity, that she hasn't a chance in final scene and she can't make the wish...

'Stay with me' and Taiyou no uta' are beautiful songs. I like singing them when I have a worse day.
