Cast & Credits
But I dislike Kento. I don't know if it is the role fault or he just play bad... It is difficult to say... Maybe I should watch him in other drama or movie.
The acting by the main girl was well done in the disease progression, but the male lead at times just didn't cut it half the time -he just seemed too detatched/unsure for the most part yet in certain scenes he really "knocked it out of the ball park". The actors and actresses that played the friends, doctor, and families all did very well. Music was really good for the most part, but some songs were excellent.
I don't think I will be rewatching this as it had several issues of various natures, but if you liked 1 litre of tears and are looking for a similar although less heartfelt story you may enjoy this drama.
