During the winter, Yuichi was hospitalized due to hepatitis. Randomly he would try to escape from the hospital but would get beat up by the nurse. One day, he happened to meet Rika, a girl of his age, in the next building. He was fascinated by her beauty, but she was very selfish girl. Although she led him by the nose, he began to be attracted by her. However, when Rika toldhim about her illness, he knew why she acted so selfish; she didn't have long to live.
Cast & Credits
The story was very faithful to the manga and anime, and I was glad that they hold on to some funny and touching parts exactly as they were. This way I think they were able to put the best parts of it in here and even added to some cenes but I think the feelings could have been slightly stronger. Then again the story is a drama but not a go to tears, rethink you life choices drama!
It has a funny and soft feeling around it. It is placed on the perspective of a teenage boy, so we follow the way he treats his friends, the way he deals with his sickness, and most importantly we can see little by little every thought of his turning to Rika,
and we can see how that afects him and changes him bit by bit.
I think the casting was very well picked. They were all exactly as I pictured them, from the main leads, to the most secondary roles. Even though the leads were very young, and even the suporting roles too, they played their parts very well.
Usually I fall in love with the musics that I hear in dramas but in this case it was just ok. Not bad, but ok.
As to watching it again, well I think there were some parts that I may likely go see again. It has very funny and very sweet moments.
If you are looking for something dramatic but still funny and light to watch this is for you.
