Storyline

A high school girl with a terminal illness opts to make the most of her few remaining months, be cheerful and experience as much as possible before it is all too late. She has a crush on a class-mate and acts on her impulse. She loves her best friend and receives loyalty in return. She brings wonder to those around her. Part of her disposition is owing to her superstitious beliefs and the diary she is leaving behind, which acts as a letter to her sullen school crush. Written by aghaemi

An effective and touching story
10 December 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a young man in high school, be who accidentally discovers that his classmate has a terminal disease. They share this secret, and becomes best of friends.

The title means "I Want to Eat Your Pancreas", and it sounds very alarming and horrifying. I thought it was a horror film, but the poster is too sweet and adorable for it to be a horror film.

The story is a very touching story of a young woman who courageously live her final days with her new best friend. Her positivity and selfless attitude brings joy to her best friends. I find the story effective and touching. I like it a lot.
