A Failed 1 Litre Attempt

I decided to watch this after having seen Erika Sawajiri's fantastic performance in 1 Litre of Tears. Erika's character here is similar to Aya in that she also has an incurable disease that threatens her life.

I'll say it outright: This drama was seriously BORING. No really. It was hell frustrating to watch. I somehow managed to make it to episode 7, but stopped after that. I probably deserve a medal for going that far. :D

Story:
The story could have been good, but the writer and the directors screwed up it seems. The characters they created made no sense especially Kouji and Asami. What made 1 Litre great was that it was a simple and believable story. Whereas this drama attempted to put 10 stories in one!

Acting:
Kudos to the actors for attempting to breathe as much character as possible into their roles. It wasn't them, it was the story...

Music:
The music is definitely noteworthy. Erika Sawajiri even used her character to release the title song!

Overall:
Anyway, a lot of people seemed to like it, but I think those were only the hard core Erika fans. The songs were good though. Don't bother wasting your timing watching this. Grab the soundtrack instead.
