Storyline

Fourth year university student Sawada Takuto is having a tough time looking for a job. The eldest son of the director of a hospital, Takuto's parents had expected him to become a doctor, but they began to focus their hopes on his younger brother Rikuto instead, some time during his junior high school. Although Takuto is popular and good at befriending ladies, he has no confidence that he will be loved and thus avoids deep emotional involvement with anyone. One day, he is informed that he does not have long to live because he is suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an incurable, progressive neurodegenerative disease. Takuto, who had given only vague thoughts to his goals in life, starts to explore what is left of his life and live with a positive attitude. Written by Anonymous

Sawada Takuto thinks that his biggest problem is unemployment, but he shortly discovers that he has the incurable disease, ALS.

I can't even begin to explain how amazing this series was.

I literally became dehydrated because I was crying so much.

It's been over a year since I've watched it, and I still think about it all the time. It was just so... emotional, but in such a good way. Not only was the story fantastic, but I think people can learn from it, and sort of get an understanding of what ALS means for both the person with it, and their loved ones. Not only does it discuss the difficulties that the disease brings, but also the hardship that he as a person has had to endure his entire life.

What really made this series so emotional for me was its relatbility. I could connect with the characters in such ways I didn't think were possible.

I highly recommend this series to everyone, but make sure you buy a couple of (hundreds of) boxes of tissues, because you'll need it.
