The 1 Litre of Tears special takes place after the actual drama events have taken place. Aya has now passed away and everybody is doing their best to live on with their own lives.
I'll be writing a spoilerless review..

Mitsuki is a girl diagnosed with the same disease as Aya, the biggest difference between her and Mitsuki would be how Aya tried full out believing she could beat her illness.. Mitsuki is only 15 years old herself, Yet she refuses to accept any shape of treatment from the doctors, This main doctor being Asou Haruto. She is given a book, Or a motivational diary moreover by one of her rehabilitation friends. This mysterious diary, As she starts to read inside of this diary she find herself becoming more and more dragged into the feelings of this girl from the book. This Ikeuchi Aya-san, Who was she?
Interested in knowing she starts asking around and finds out that Asou has had relations with her before..

Through this special you will find this being a summary of the drama in itself, along with how you'll be presented with a few new people and a better ending to the story. How did family and friends live on after Aya's passing?

I pretty much liked the special. They managed to do it pretty well, And it has by my opinions a better ending than the actual drama had even though I liked the other ending to...

This special was just as sad as the actual drama. It had me crying under almost the full out special. The musical score was pretty good. Mostly the same music as it originally was in the Drama though with a few new songs added.

Picking up Vampire Host, I didn't have too much expectations about it. All I basically expected upon watching it was just to pass some time. What I didn't expect however, Was that already in the first episode I would be completely addicted to the drama. A drama based on the Bloodhound manga by the mangaka Yuki Kaori. I will be writing a spoilerless review.

Rion Kanou is a 17 year old girl, And a great friend to her friend. One day she recieves a voice mail from her best friend who abrubtly got cut off. All she could hear from the voicemail was the sound of her friends really shaken up voice, And her saying that the person who has her captive is a real vampire. Not believing in vampires Rion's suspicions automatically leads her to a themed host club downtown, Where she meets the young Suou. Suou is refusing to have anything to do with her best friends dissapearance which makes Rion more sure that he is the person behind it. Leaving herself indebted by breaking a valueable wine bottle, She starts working in the host club and by a call of fate she finds out the truth of Suou. This fated encounter eventually leading her into a dangerous journey ahead filled with new encounters, Dangers, Sadness, Happiness, Laughter, Fear and some romance. It doesn't seem like something special when you first watch it, But when you've watched it for a bit things definately becomes more original aswell as entertaining.

The soundtrack isn't too special. Its fitting that of a short drama, But it doesn't stand out especially much to the point of needing to be bragged about.

Vampire Host is definately not a drama you should miss out on. If you like romance, comedy, vampires and ofcourse the supernatural-genre, this will be a mustlove for you. They have however decided to keep parts of this drama somewhat alike the vampire stereotype due to the manga. Allthough things might get exaggerated often in the series, Its a part of its charm..

Lovesick is one of the many movies out there today who doesn't seem like anything special due to its common storyline. Once you actually watch the movie and get into the plot, You'll find yourself falling in love with the movie. What seemed like just another romantic comedy, Will in the end turn out to be a movie of a deeper meaning. With Ariel Lin in the role of Rou Qing falling for a young doctor, acted by Chen Berlin. I will write a spoilerless review.

Liang Ruo Qing was happily in love with her boyfriend, His lifelong dream was always to become famous and so After some chances trying he eventually got recruited as a singer. Due to the wrong timing she entered to see a missleading image of her boyfriend and his manager in a uncomfortable situation, This leading to her belief about her boyfriend cheating on her. Many tears were cried that night, But as time went by she decided she would stop trusting guys. 3 Years has passed since then, And Ruo Qing has grown cold towards men. At her place of working there is a new doctor working, Seemingly perfect. Without a flaw visually, And nice to everybody. Love at first sight makes the situation difficult for Ruo Qing, So she decides to prove to everybody that this doctor Zhe Han isn't anything close to how perfect he seems... However after many tries of finding something bad about him, She only seems to fall for him more and more.
A Story filled with romance you never would have expected. Its not just any story, Its by far worth the watch.

The soundtrack in the movie deserves bragging. The songs that are used are fitting into each of the situations they are used, And they are fittingly choosen for the main cast.

A Story about Love and Heartache, Aswell as the importance of life and happiness.. Recommended for all people who like movies with a message to be told. For everyone who loves a good romantic story.
If you are a fan of either of these, You will love Lovesick.

Kimi ni Love Song wo is a beautiful lovestory with a message behind its first most noticed storyline. While it is a story about love, It also tells the story of the friendship of the band, Helping eachother out when its needed through difficult times. I will be writing a spoilerless review.

Sungje is a singer for the band Supernova, However he has always had his flaws in his Japanese pronounciations. After unwillingly failing his song records many times, the song producers decides to put his songs on hold for now asking him to improve his Japanese. He takes a walk along the harbor and comes to meet a girl, This girl doesn't seem to see who he is however. Singing on a song by the korean band Supernova, He is unable to get the sentences to come out right causing the girl Saori to complete his song lyrics with perfect Japanese. Sungje quickly falls for the girl helping him out, And so he asks her a request of her learning him the right way to speak Japanese. She accepts on the condition that he will learn her korean aswell. His feelings develop for Saori while hiding behind somebody elses name, Determined to confess about his real identity. From here on starts a story of heartbreak, Friendship and romance for Sungje, However his happiness won't be one gained without struggling for it.

I found this movie to be really incredible. It had me laughing, crying and making me unable to refrain from smiling at some points. The movies soundtrack was amazing, Into the soundtrack there were original music from Supernova themselves fitting into the story without a doubt. Music was put into the right situations, No music I feel didn't belong in the movie. Great!.

Kimi ni Love Song wo is a story for all out there who are able to take watching romantic tearjerkers. While the storyline is unpredictive it only keeps the watch more amazing. Sung Je's first movie role, Couldn't have been performed any more perfectly.

Sunshine Angel is a romantic story which follows the life of a young rich boy who unexpectedly falls in love with someone he wouldn't even bother to give a secound look to normally.. This story, Starring Rainie Yang and Farenheit's Wu Chun as the lead roles takes on the every day issues about the man who has it all, Unexpectedly then to lose everything previously valued to him before he met the girl of his dreams. I'll leave this review spoilerless..

Di Ya Xin is a young male who has it all.. He was born into a wealthy family and has friends and is the general director of a company of his own left behind after his parents death. Everything seems to go well for him, Until he takes a trip to Japan while skydiving. Falling towards the ground with a parachute who seems to be broken, Only to be saved by falling into the small bathroom of a young girl named Yokou (Yang Guang). Yokou is a girl with a far different background. Her parents are professional scammers who take money from people and usually leaves her behind to deal with the issues of cleaning up after them. Some people's finally had it with her parents behavior and demands for her to pay them back all the money her parents stole from them. With no chance of paying back they employ her with a job in Taiwan as a Maid of a young man.. This man, The same man who broke her bathroom. As Di Ya Xin slowly falls in love with Yang Guang and decides to give her his all, There are someone in his company who are trying to take all that he truly owns and cherish away from him. As the story develops you'll see Love, Drama, Proverty.. Along with lots of unexpected twists not expected.

The drama has a really good soundtrack, I Love nearly each and every song in the ost.. The songs are placed into the right scenes so I can't complain of the timing.

I'd really recommend this story to everyone, The story won't progress quite as expected. But I won't lie to you guys.. Despite of loving the main characters acting inside of this drama, It left me with a huge 2nd lead syndrome for Zhang Junning.. (Geng Fei)

This is actually the very first Drama review I've written as to now, But I'll try to write it well..

Allright, The story takes place in Japan and Korea.. Hinata is a girl with no luck in her life. Her boyfriend is a cheating player, Her job earnings aren't much. All her life she has been dreaming about becoming an author still never really succeded. On a trip to Seoul, South Korea she happens to notice a very gentlemanly looking handsome man. Thinking this man is pretty attractive and probably kind of heart she keeps watching over him and sees him dumping a girl with no gentleness in his eyes. Even more than this, He is accusing her of taking pictures of him to sell around to the tabloids.. He takes her phone away aswell as her dignity along with it. Only left with the exact words the man said in mind ''Japanese people have no shame..'' Obviously offended Hinata goes back to Japan and meets up with this rude man again, An heir to a large firm has dissapeared and has people looking for him. Who is this man really, And what is the true shape of his real self?

This is the start of a romantic story like noone else.. Beautiful Love is a webdrama without much popularity. Actually, I'd say that it is one of the unnoticed diamonds there.. It sparkles with all its might, And contains no flaws nor anything to be complained about. A Webdrama for romance & Music lovers, With music from DBSK included in the drama, The atmosphere goes beyond the expected as you start watching..
An Overall 10 for this amazing drama, I'd even like it if they produced a 2nd season.. The Rewatch value is definately on top. I just finished the drama now, And I already want to rewatch it..

1 litre of Tears is definately one of the saddest dramas I've ever been able to see. I picked up this movie after actually having watched the Drama.



Aya Kito is a japanese girl with a life like all others. Lately some changes has started happening around her everyday life. This movie is the 100% true story of a sick girl, Its based on the Diary of Aya Kito. The Movie was from a different perspective than the original drama as The drama was more added on too and held characters who weren't in the movie.



I Think the actors all did a pretty good job. Aside of my point of view where I Thought The Drama actors would be starring in the movie aswell.. They did a good job and managed to win me over. As for the music, It wasn't a music drama so it didn't really contain too much music. The Music that was there to be found, Were good though.. I gave the music an 8.



I really liked the movie for the atmosphere it has too it. The fact that the story is true only makes it all the more unbearable. Its a really good movie allthough the pace is slow at some points, I'll have to say I don't think the story could have been any better..



Its a good movie, Aswell as the drama is a must watch.

I'd recommend people who like more serious stories to watch this series.. The Movie might start of slow, But It will have you crying by the time you reach the storys end.



R.I.P Aya Kito..

Tokyo Boy is a movie in which tells a story in which you can't find in most movies today. This psychological romance movie shows you the life of the young girl Minato, Ever since a young age Minato has managed to find herself a penpal, Little does she know about him except that he is a boy on her age.

In a early age Minato (Horikita Maki) lost her parents to a caraccident and as a result from this she had to move in to her senile grandmother as she was the only family she had. Night is not just any usuall boy, He is one that Minato can tell even her darkest secrets to with her trust for him always remaining. Lately she has fallen in love, In the convenience-store she works she met Karasawa Shu by a coincidence, He helps her out in something that usually would cause her salary to be deducted. From this moment on she fell in love with him. Sending Night letters telling him about how she feel, The result will be one not expected from anyone. Who is this Night really?
A romance takes place in where it doesn't seem to belong in Tokyo Boy, The story of a girl with a strange illness yet to be labled with a name.

The music in this movie isn't really that much to brag about, But then again it is not really a music-based movie in the first place. I gave it a six as I am neither especially satesfied nor Too greatly dissapointed by it.

This movie will be recommended to people who enjoy psychological movietypes or dramas. The pace is really slow at first, However the movie will manage to catch up with itself. A great movie, Yet not one of the best. It's worth the watch anyways though.

The Curse is a movie by the same person as the director of The Ring & One Missed Call.

as for the Re-Watch Value, Well to be quite honest this movie scared me half to death so I doubt I will be rewatching it to soon. As for the score I set, I added it from another persons view on it.



Its a good story, The Curse (also known as The Grudge) Takes place in different kind of scenarios. One of these, In the house where Toshio lives. A Teacher goes for a home visit to a student in his class, only to find that his mother isn't really present. The two of them decides to sit and wait for her to arrive. As the waiting happens weirds things start to happen as the Teacher is faced with his worst Nightmare. The Movie will come with unexpected Scares, Tears and a Horror not many other movies or shows have ever managed to reach up to..

If you'd like to watch the Curse, Watch it with a pillow..

The Actors were really good, In overall there was no cheezy characters.

The Music wasn't really all that, But by taking it into concideration The Curse is a Low Budget Movie, So as for this, It was pretty good..



The Movie isn't filmed like most films are. At first you won't even be able to recognize it as a real movie, But as it goes on the filming gets more intense as it gets filmed like a documentary would.



So Overall I would say, This is a really good movie. Not for the Faint Hearted though. Open a road towards your worst nightmares in The Curse, Who knows what you'll experience.

I think by now everyone knows the story behind High School Musical. This movie is a Chinese adaption of the original high school musical movie. With Chen Zi Han starring as Ning Ning, The chinese version of the schoolbright girl who has an urge to reach towards the stars to find her way into the music world.

I was actually pretty surprised when watching this movie. Originally, Yes I was a fan of the original HSM when it arrived aswell, And allthough the plot is pretty much the same in both movies I feel that this version was more mature than the original made by Disney. Music in the show with all different syles added. From the most beautiful ballads to the most lively hiphop songs. This movie is sure to have music for everyone to enjoy. The Movie's message being; ''We're all in this together'' It was better displayed in this version.

Ning Ning is a girl who's recently moved into the neighborhood and so she is transfering schools along with it. With Strict parents not allowing her to have a boyfriend, and forcing her to constantly study, She reaches secretly for the stars in order to find something new that she can do. Surprised to find her hands leading her the way towards ''Poet'', The Basketball Teams captain with simillar dreams as hers, Here on starts a romance who will have its share of difficulties awaiting ahead.
..Will Ning Ning and Poet's love be able to take it?

In this movie you'll face romance, comedy and drama in genres.
Its a pretty good movie, I actually fullheartedly believe, despite of me liking the original filmseries too, This movie is better.
Its a movie I'd recommend to all music and romance lovers.
Depite of the plots of the movies being exactly the same, The movies are nothing alike.. Both fans and people who didn't like the original series will enjoy this.

With a satisfying soundtrack, I feel that this remake is as good as it could have been. It even beats the original in several aspects.. The rewatch value is high, I know I'll be re-watching this later atleast..

One Missed Call is one of the most known japanese horror movies exept from The Grudge & The Ring.. This is not atall a movie for older or easily scared people..

A Strange deal of events have been happening lately and Lots of people have passed away. Yumi can't seem to put her finger on what these events are caused by. So many people don't just decide to go and commit suicide. As she starts connecting the dots she eventually comes to one conclusion.. What is the one thing all the ''Suicides'' have in common? They all recieved a phonecall before they died.. A Phonecall from their own Cellphone.. Doubtful about this fact in the start She decides to keep this theory to herself.. It is no way something like this can Occur right?
As The Movie proceeds it will scare and shock you in ways you never even saw coming as The Movie will be a horror movie with a little bit of romance concluded..

What would you do if you got a One Missed Call from your own cellphone? Leaving a message of your own voice right before you are about to die.. This is what Yumi struggles with while trying to keep her sanity.. A Movie Recommended for horror lovers. Its a good movie with a good ending.. Watch it, You won't be dissapointed.. But you might get Scared...

''One time's carelessness is all it really takes''

This was a really good drama. I never expected it to be like it was. I got it pretty well from the title of the drama that it would be a really sad one though, And I really liked the ending. Bittersweet in a good way. I'll leave this review spoilerless..

Kano Masaki is a young girl who for a long time have been a fan of the music producer Ishikawa Keigo. As a reward for remaining a true fan of Keigo she decides she deserves to be there on atleast one of his concerts. Spending money on a ticket for her and one of her friends, She looses her wallet with money and the tickets to his concert. Influence can be a bad thing, Especially if its given you by the wrong type of people. Fake friends are some of these. The nightclub downtown is a place where Masaki and her friends usually meets up, Always talking about the same thing. Money. The matter comes out into the open and Masaki decides that one night won't do her any harm. 50.000 yen for sleeping with some stranger just once, Going into the experience only expecting to slightly regret it after it has actually happened, She comes out of the experience with more than just the 50.000 yen. Far from what she ever expected could happen, She's now been given the HIV virus from just this one night she'll regret the rest of her life.
Allthough not knowing about this, Masaki-chan spends the night with Keigo shortly after the concert.. Finding out who her true friends really are, aswell as obtaining a new friend and love interest in Keigo, Her life from then on turns upside-down.

Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake is the story of a young girl who gets infected with the HIV virus from a stranger. A story filled with love and tears. An unique drama who'll give you a new way of looking at your life. It is a really good drama, I don't think it could have been any better. If you like mature dramas, Romance and Tearjerkers this drama is definately a mustwatch..

Yamashita Tomohisa takes on the role as 15 year old Nagashima Ken in the drama special Shounen wa tori ni natta about the boy who made miracles happen time and time again. I will be writing a spoilerless review.

Ken is a 15 year old boy who was born with a unusual heartdisease. Ever since the day he was born, There has always been a little hole in his heart. The doctors all claimed he wouldn't be able to live to become even 1 year old, Miracles occured and to the doctors big surprise Ken is now a fifteen year old boy. Planning and studying for what he would like to become in the future, the disease worsens as heartattacks begin happening regularly. Ken is growing, and his heart is unable to keep up with the growth at this rate. His old lifestyle is forced into a drastic change as Ken will have to start using means for living he never before thought that he would ever need. Ken keep on staying true to his own self throughout the sufferings and hardships he takes on. The Heartwarming story of a boy who despite of his handicaps always put other people before himself. Eternally fascinated by the legendary mountain hawk who he has only seen once before in his life, And deciding that he will live to see it again.

There wasn't much of an ost for this drama special. It honestly didn't even have a themesong which is rare for dramas. Most of the music in the drama was pianomusic or just emotional instrumentals adapted into fitting in with the story. The music isn't really anything to brag about, But what was there to be found really was good.

Shounen wa tori ni natta is a special that doesn't have to much popularity out there. It deserves more than it got. Watching the special it felt like Ken motivated you throughout the story instead of you just feeling bad for him. Its not just another tearjerker, The drama special will have you angered, laughing and crying along with the characters.

The Blue Flame, aka The Blue Light is a movie starring Arashi's Ninomiya Kazunari in the main role as the young boy named Shuichi Kushimori who himself has taken on the task of protecting his family against his abusive stepfather.. Shuichi Kushimori goes through a lots of lifequestioning trials withinn this movie. I'll be writing a spoilerless review.

Curled up withinn his room he is living life wondering what he should do about Sone, His abusive stepfather. Shuichi lives his life in school and in public like any other high-schooler would, But in reality his life is far from that of a normal student. His memories doesn't reach beyond a few years back without the real reason for this really being known by him, And his mother is uncapable of letting go of her abusive x-husband. He decides to take on the trial of getting rid of Sone himself. What started as nothing but a selfish wish to protect his family and himself, Will eventually turn out to be the downfall of Shuichi. From here on starts a story about Love, Hate, Cruelty and Selftorture you'd never be able to see coming. Love can be too cruel, If you do something who you'd think was for the better of your family, Reality always has a way of catching up to you in some ways.

The soundtrack for this movie was pretty good.. The instrumental melodies in the shows score made you want to cry at some points, Aswell as the songs from the original soundtrack fit into the story.

In overall I don't think I have anything to complain about regarding this movie. It is doubtlessly a movie everyone should watch as it gives you a new perspective on life itself.

In the original version the character Yumi Nakamura was played by Kou Shibasaki, Here in this direct sequel to the first movie Kogure Mimura starrs as the main girl Kyoko Okudera who gets the call. I'll be writing a spoilerless review.

Upon this event happening it doesn't take to long before the call forwarded to her own phone. A Call to her phone, from her own number with a ringtone she never choose herself.
Not to mention, This tone.. It sounds like something she has heard before in the past. After lots of thought she comes to remember where she heard it and how this urban legend takes place. The first victim to survive this curse, Nakamura Yumi.. She's dissapeared without a trace.
One Missed Call 2 is a story filled with horror aswell as tears, as Kyoko finds out who she really can trust in life. Maybe her true love, Was right by her side all along?..

The music in the series was great, The score was dramatic and good.. And the original soundtrack had songs filled with theme-songs who fit the series. This series is the original sequel to the original 1st movie. You'll need to have seen the first movie to be able to understand everything here..
