...made me cry like nobody's business. It's the first drama where I cry on seeing the first episode! Although now I'm not sure why I was crying. But it made me cry. And yes, like everybody else has said, this drama is worth watching. I think it's based on a true story, because later on, in the credits, they showed the girl's photos.
And how can you not cry at the end when K's song is being played?
I think the illness mentioned in the drama is very scary. The patients who suffer from this later on lie in bed having to look at hiragana words on a board and pointing at the correct one.
And Ryo's character is both cold and warm. Aso? But he's also called Haruto by his otou-san. He's the son of a professor in the hospital, and his father probably doesn't understand him. He's a very intelligent boy but he just doesn't want to take the exam. So during the drama when he finally takes the exam by accident, he got into a really good school. He's pretty anti-social too, and doesn't want to mix around. But finally when he smiles, you can see that little hope.
By the way he looks good in that uniform. He likes to lie to people too.
Aso and Aya (the girl) got picked as class leaders, and Aso just doesn't really want to do his duty. The class doesn't want to listen to them; they rather revise their homework. But later on Aya makes a really meaningful speech, and finally the class was moved. I think that speech was very touching. (: And I guess Ryo was finally moved by those words.
Because, in the drama, it seems that his character is one who cannot find his goal in living. He's kind of confused? Maybe it's because his parents don't understand him.
Ryo's character was kind of cold at the start, and it got me a bit irritated. But then later on you start to feel for him. You want to know his feelings. And when you see him alone in his room, you know you will wash away that bad image of him.
I have a feeling I will prefer this drama over Nobuta Wo Produce. Because, in the area of dramas, I prefer crying than laughing. I prefer being touched. (:
And I was quite irritated with Ryo (sorry Ryo fans!!) after reading his web diary entries. Sometimes he just feels like he's writing crap inside and just throwing any random thing in.
But after this drama, I know he's not acting as himself, but... Ryo, I clap for you. Haha.
It feels like such a long wait for the next episode...
Initially I didn't want to watch this. You know what a lazy bum I am on dramas. But I saw there were subtitles so I grabbed it immediately. Thanks Kazanko. (:
I am in love. With 1 litre no Namida. I'm not going to blame Ryo for having it 100% on his mind.
