Yuuji is still a first-grade student, he is having a very hard time understanding what has happened to his mother and the fact that she won't be coming back. At the very beginning of the first episode, the voice of the late mother (played by Mimura) is reading from a picture book that she wrote for Yuuji before she died. It is about a mother who dies, but promises to return when the rainy season comes. Yuuji believes in this story and thinks that his mother will come back when the rainy season comes. And surprisingly... she actually does. When it begins raining on a June morning, Yuuji runs out into the forest to the special place where he used to play with his mother. His father, Takumi (played by Narimiya Hiroki) chases after him to get him to go to school. When they arrive at the old ruined building where they used to play, Yuuji's mother, Mio is waiting there completely alive and healthy, but she has no memory of them or anything that occurred during her life. -- JFan Edit Translation

My main motivation for watching this drama was Narimiya Hiroki. I wanted to see his acting as a father in this drama. He portrayed the character and the feelings of the character very well in my opinion. The character Takumi is an awkward character who has many insecurities and isn't able to express himself well. I think Narimiya Hiroki was right on the dot in portrayal of the Takumi. I also liked the younger version of Takumi. He did a great job too. I like the fact that this story was told from Mio's point of view. I was also impressed by the little boy who plays Yuji. His acting was really good.

Although at first the story moves slowly but I ended up liking the pace since the story was good the way it was told.

I really liked the deep bond the the Aio family have. Despite the flaws each character have, they each accept each other for who they are. There are misunderstandings but they always manage to be truthful to each other in the end. I really liked that part of the story. That's what a real family should be like in my opinion.

This drama showed the struggles each character had to face and how they overcame all of them by being there for each other.

This is simply such a sad yet very touching and beautiful story of a family.

The theme song for this drama Kizuna by Orange Range is really nice as well. While I was watching this drama, it kept playing in my head.

You don't necessary have to be a Narimiya Hiroki fan to enjoy this drama. This drama has a lot of good points. It is really worth watching.

If it will motivate you, Miura Haruma also has a cameo/small part in this show.

Overall, this drama is really worth watching.
