This drama is really heartwarming, heart rendering and very beautiful. Highly recommended.

The chemistry is very strong, the value of the drama brought upon is very strong and the acting is very realistic and believe. It will make you mesmerized in the character and the story. Even tough the plot is very heartbreaking but it carried itself with light hearted and have funny moments too.

One beautiful piece. Among my top favorite.

To be loved like this! I'm trying to imagine it! This was truly a heart-warming story as it explores the relationship between a man and a woman handicapped by her illness. The romance between Kyoko and Shuji will remain deep in my heart for awhile. Kimura Takuya has now been added to my list of favorite Japanese actors. He so wonderfully portrays Shuji who unselfishly loves and cares for Kyoko regardless of the objections of her brother who only wants her to be happy. Takako Tokiwa as Kyoko, this was my first time seeing her but guess what, she is making her way on my list too! This is not a story for everyone but anyone who appreciates a good drama will recognize the beauty in this. Excellent!!
