Cast & Credits
The stories from the letter recipients can be a bit cliche, but it is interesting to see how Sawano reacts with each tale. It is indeed hard to tell if his heart gets touched with every episode, that it can get frustrating and annoying to watch at times.
Acting from almost all the cast is commended, but music tends to sound boring at times, although it tries to be relevant, especially with the lyrical content. Overall, it is a good watch.
The story itself is very unique and each back story for each letter and the focus on the Sawano family and Okae-chan was a little unbalanced at times, but this show was so beautifully shot which allowed each moment to be captured successfully without leaving anything or anyone behind. And each emotion within this five-episode show captures each illness in a very significant and poignant way, showing a face to each person with a real illness, or the family and friends or the professional doctors or other patients the illness affects..
There is a wonderful life lesson in this show and each moment in this story was something real I believe we all can relate to.
