Be prepared to cry a liter of tears over this extremely tragic yet unbelievably inspiring drama...
7 October 2009 | by (tehran,iran) – See all my reviews

the series starts with a shocking speech about aya's(main character) future,a great looking girl whose kind expression and smile make the audience to fall in love with her character in the first ten minute,the ten minute warm-up for an eleven_episode of great drama that is perfectly formed with superb script,acting,cinematography,and music... it's one of those dramas that you know how it ends as you are informed in the first minute of the series...BUT it's a story about hope,inspiration ,and love ...and Aya's challenging and extremely strong personality makes you accompany her through her pains,sadness,and hopes... the series is based on the diary of Aya kito but one thing is added to the script to make the series more dramatic and that's Asou ,Aya's classmate whose involvement in Aya's life create some of the most dramatic and unforgettable moments in the history of Japanese dramas... at the end of each episode you witness a slideshow of Aya's life accompanied by over the top song... well that's about it...A liter of tears stands next to nobuta wa produce as my favorite jdramas,Do not miss it.but remember don't except funny moment.Arigato..
