1 litre of tears~  
A long time ago, I watched the drama Summer Snow. I've never cried so hard over the end of a drama than I did for that one.

Now I'm crying over just the first two episodes of 1 liter of tears. It makes me wonder... why, in this world, do we have such horrible things as diseases like this? She was only 15.... she didn't do anything to deserve it..

The drama is based on a true story (based on the diary that the girl kept starting just before she found out that she had the disease), and I started watching it a week ago when it started airing because Endo has a tiny part in it. But I would watch it in a heartbeat even if it wasn't for him. It's going to be really amazing to see how what's happening changes not only her, but the people around her. A beautiful story, but I don't think that any episode won't be a tearjerker. I don't have anywhere near the vocabulary to understand a lot of what's going on (too specialized vocab! Ehhhh), so I downloaded the subtitled first episode and just cried my eyes out. The third episode's preview looks to be really good, too. I can't wait.... in a really really sad way.

At first, when I heard that the romance was added in and didn't really happen, I was a little upset. It seemed to make the story more fiction and less a true tale. But then I heard from several people that it was added in at the request of the girl's mother, because the one thing that she is most sad about is that her daughter was never able to experience a romance in real life. That's so... so sad. So in a way, it's like looking at her life through a wavy glass.. how people wished that it would have changed a little bit. But in the end, the ending is going to be the same, isn't it.....

I don't have any more words to describe it. I just highly recommend it to anyone who likes japanese drama. You can find the episodes at D-addicts as always, or on TV in Japan on Tuesday nights, 9:00 pm, Fuji tv. ;_;

That's the reason I can't watch that drama.
I cry over anything...I can't image my reaction to that drama ("Ima aini yukimasu" killed me literally)
That's so sad...so incredible sad;_;

Is Imaaini really sad? OMG I didn't know that it was a sad drama/movie. I downloaded the movie a while back and haven't watched it yet.. but if it's sad, I just might.

I'm kind of in the mood for sad dramas right now. ^^;; I always cry, but I really love to watch them.

PBFansubs released the first episode on d-addicts and maybe a few other places. But d-addicts is the best place to look for j-drama and subs.

Now I'm scared to watch it...I cry so easily ^^;;

Agreed, I cried for the first episode too.
This episode is pretty good too but I didn't cry.

You should watch Ima aini yukimasu if you like sad shows, the movie rocks(especially the part where the son is telling the story)! ^^

I loved Summer Snow. Even though I didn't understand most of it since it was chinese subbed. T__T The ending was so sad I was just sitting there balling my eyes out. There is this drama about this school being teleported into this distant future where everything is in ruins. I dunno what the name of it is but the ending made me cry as much as I did in Summer Snow.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 19th, 2005 09:48 pm (UTC)
Ooh! If you can remember the name of that drama let me know!! I want to watch it!

With SUmmer Snow, there are english subtitled versions available. ^^

You cried VERY hard over Summer Snow?

Ah oh. I just started to watch it two days ago and now I'm afraid about how it will end. I have some ideas but... Hope I can finish watching it tonight.
I don't want to cry over a drama again.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 20th, 2005 05:20 am (UTC)
There is NO WAY that you won't cry. I can't even stand one of the main characters, but I still bawled my eyes out over this one. It's a really surprising ending. o.o So sad. SO SAD.. *cries*

Ahh...so one litre of tears is depressing then?

I was thinking of loading but I haven't gone by any reviews of the series.
