since i haven’t been sleeping at night lately, i’ve been watching movies/anime/series/etc. at youtube and i came across 1 Litre of Tears, the jdrama series. i’ve heard about it before but i didn’t know a place to download it with subs. lucky for me i came across it on youtube. i watched it for 2 days straight and each episode made me cry. makes you think and wonder.. how much we take a lot of things for granted. we forget from time to time so if you need remembering, i highly recommend this dorama. you can watch the videos from MocaJJar. here is the synopsis from Channel-Ai Community Blog:



This dorama is about a girl who was diagnosed with a disease called Spinocerebellar Degeneration when she was 15 years old, and was able to continue her life until her death at the age of 25 years old.

The plot is based on the true story of a Japanese girl named Kito Aya, who had the same disease. She kept writing in her diary to remember her experiences until she could no longer hold a pen. Aya simply wished to live until the end of her life, and the purpose of writing in the diary was to remind herself to not give up. She shed tears many times, at the same time encompassed by the rich love and support from her family, friends, and boyfriend. Her diary “1 Litre of Tears” was published after her death, because of its inspiring and courageous message of, “Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing.” So far, over 18,000,000 copies of her diary have been sold.
