Ayumu passes an entrance exam of a high school with help of Yuko, her best friend, but Yuko fails and blames Ayumu for her failure. Broken heart from the broken friendship, Ayumu shuts her up and gives up making new friends in high school. But Manami, the most popular girl in her class, is more than happy to accept her as her friend, so she starts to enjoy her new life. Butwhen Manami misunderstands that Ayumu is trying to steal her boyfriend, her insidious bullying to Ayumu begins. With nobody to turn to as her mother concerns more about her weak brother, and her teacher has her own problem, she is pushed to the limit of losing herself. ~~ Adapted from Keiko Suenobu's manga "LIFE".

I finished watching this drama a few weeks ago and forgot to write a review, so, here I am :) First of all I'd like to say that I was introduced to this drama because I read the manga which I am currently waiting for translations... I am a fan of the manga and also a big fan of the drama. LIFE dived into human emotions and really expressed them well. This stroy of bullying takes it to the extreme following a girl named Ayumu. The actors were amazing especially Hosoda Yoshihiko- he honestly at some points, scared the crap out of me! Though, towards the end I started to pity Katsumi and hate him a little less. In my opinion the cast was very well chosen. I watched LIFE straight through because I couldn't put it off- my eyes were glued to the screen. I even ordered the series on DVD 'cuz it's something I could watch over again. I wish this series was longer...though it did capture the concept in the course of 11 episodes ;D I reccommend LIFE to everyone even if you aren't really interested in this type of drama, usually I wouldn't want to watch a drama like this but with life it's an exception.

Holy Crap! Life is insanely good! You need to watch this! Life is a drama like no other. At only 36 minutes per episode, It's a fast pasted thrill ride from beginning to end. At first there are so many utterly terrible things happening that it's hard to watch, but for some reason you can't stop watching. This is do to the amazing cinematography and the infectious OST. The best part about Life is that it has several amazing messages. That's one thing that makes Jdramas so great. There's actually morals in the story rather than meaningless crap. Life has an amazing Christian message to it even though there's no mention of Christianity. Romans 12:21 - Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
