One day, "Me" - a highschooler - found a paperback in the hospital. The "Disease Coexistence Journal" was its title. It was a diary that "Me"'s classmate, Sakura Yamauchi, had written in secret. Inside, it was written that due to her pancreatic disease, her days were numbered. And thus, "Me" coincidentally went from Just-a-Classmate to a Secret-Knowing-Classmate. It was as if he were being drawn to her, who was his polar opposite. However, the world presented the girl that was already suffering from an illness with an equally cruel reality.

A Showcase Of Using Themes in Movies
13 February 2021 | by Golden_HopeSee all my reviews

This is such an emotional movie. I think what i loved about it is that it isn't just a sad movie it is also such a warm movie.

First off it looks fantastic. Every frame is just perfection. The colours, the animation. It's all really impressive.

The story and characters are amazing too. The script is gorgeous. It is a familiar type of story but it has so many elements that change it around and prevent from being stale. The characters are fully realised, you understand them both so much

I think the strongest part is the theming. It is just beautiful and woven into the film so effortlessly. It explores friendships, loneliness and death as well as live and living in such an amazing way. It isn't scared to really dig deep into these topics and shove them in your face to look at. I can't express how amazing it was to watch the writer explore and play with these films in such a real way.

Definitely check it out. It is fantastic, you'll cry and smile.
