However, the friendship betweenTowa, a naive but unusually articulate member of the program, and Arisu, a rebellious schoolgirl, helps both of them learn to overcome their troubles.

Cast & Credits
This show is an absolutely touching drama. I've watched 7 episodes yet but I can say I've learned lots of things from the charachters already. About things, about enjoying life, always loving yourself, loving the people around you, protecting the ones you love -no matter what you are going through.
I felt so close to the charachters as if they were all my friends. I think it was about the actors. All of the actors are really talented that they make every charachter look special and brilliant in a way. Even the evil ones, I guess.
You can easily tell music had a really important place in this drama. Starts with a quite beautiful song, ends with a beautiful song. You will see the charachters playing music instruments, different for each one of them.
My recommendation for you... I gotta tell you- if you are not so familiar with the dramas, this show might be challenging for you. And if you are an emotional person, I guarantee that you will be crying every single episode. Because I did, literally.
But doesn't matter which position of life you are in right now, I suggest you to watch this show. It will definetely give you something good, different, something to think about. Inspire you, maybe. I think I will be re-watching it whenever I feel lonely or sad about something.
Really good show in my opinion! x
