Storyline

As a child Takuma is diagnosed with a heart condition that requires care from a cardiologist. He soon becomes friends with his doctors young daughter Mayu while being treated at the hospital. One day Mayu overhears her father saying that Takumas condition is serious enough that he most likely wont live beyond the age of 20. Takuma isn't aware of this himself, however, so at 8-years-old he makes a promise to marry Mayu when they turn 20. Later in life, Takuma becomes aware that he wont be able to keep this promise and he begins distancing himself from Mayu in hopes of protecting her. Written by Anonymous

Entertaining
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on an ANA flight from Japan to the USA - probably the only way I could see it since it doesn't seem to have been released in the USA.

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as predictable as the title suggested and was not given a Hollywood happy ending. I didn't realize that manga were sometimes weepy teenage love stories.

I actually found the movie quite entertaining. Definitely weepy in parts. There's one absolutely surprising, hilarious, and brilliant scene where she berates him in front of the whole school for trying to break up with her. I watched it several times because it was so funny. Made the whole movie worth watching!
