Kawai Keisuke, Niini (Nishikido Ryo) has just been accepted to a high school and is celebrating with his family, his mother, father, younger brother and grandmother. They are sitting by the table and talking about Niini's future. After high school he wants to study at Tokyo University. He is a young boy who absolutely loves to study and is always aiming high when it comes to school. But that night as he is sitting by his table and is studying for school, suddenly he isnt seeing clearly, his head hurts, he cant hold his pencil and he starts shaking. Then he falls down on the floor. His mother hears some noise so she checks upon him cause she noticed earlier that he had a headache. When she comes into his room she sees him lying on the ground and shaking. Niini wakes up at the hospital. He notices that his parents are hiding something from him. He later on finds out, he got a brain tumor. So now his life is turned upside down. He is forced to skip first year of high school to get treatment. After a year the tumor has disappeared and Niini starts at the high school. But there is still a possibility that the tumor might return. And it sure does. 3 years later. Just as he is about to go to Tokyo Uni. He again has to fight against the tumor,, again and again. And he gets frustrated. So one day he run back home from the hospital. He goes into his room and the first thing he does is take a huge book and smash the window. He totally freaks out on the room. Ruins everything. And his mother comes in tries to stop him and he (freaking) punches his mother in the face!!!! . But then he decides to go to the hospital and fight against the disease.
*Sob, sob* . It actually made me cry!!. And think .. A lot.. Like what do u tell a person who is dying when they say "u dont knw how i feel!" and when they ask "why did this happen to me? why me when i have dreams. why not some other guy who's got no purpose in life?" and "i dont knw who i am anymore. what am i supposed to do".. aayyaaaaaa.. Seriously there is like nothing u can say that is going to make that person feel any better. Its the same question they ask and people are never able to give an answer. So i was actually surprised by this movie/sp drama. it made me thnk about stuff like that. and it must be hard to work at the hospital when people start thinking like that. like why exactly did it happen to them, u cant really answer that. In this drama Niini kept saying "U just keep telling me those empty words: Do ur best aso" but what can u else do. Sit down start crying with them. That wouldnt help much too. But anyway this drama is like mostly about not giving up on helping even though the one that needs help doesnt want it. And the best help is probably just being by their side and making them smile, that way it will be a little less hard for them to get through the day. And omo not to mention the time where the mother says "Hit me! i dont care! i will keep on saying "do ur best!"" and he freaking punches her!! in the face!!! his mother!!! But the reason i watched this was of course because of Ryo-Chan ! I thnk i got a crush on him >.<
