Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu


僕の初恋をキミに捧ぐ

I Give My First Love to You

Synopsis:

Takuma, a boy who is told he will die before he’s 20, and Mayu, a girl who is in love with him…

The story begins when they are little kids. Mayu, whose father is a doctor, meets Takuma, who is hospitalized in her father’s workplace. They develop feelings for each other, but Mayu learns of Takuma’s grave illness and that he will die before he turns 20. The distraught children make one promise for an uncertain future.

Time passes, and the girl becomes a young woman, and the boy, a young man. Mayu continues to support and love Takuma. On the other hand, Takuma, who knows his days are numbered, pushes away his feelings for Mayu and distances himself from her. He cannot stand to see her cry or hurt her more than he already has. Then Mayu meets another man who has feelings for her, and Takuma meets a woman who has the same illness, and their feelings for each other begin to waver.

Misunderstandings, unsaid thoughts, the frustrations and chagrin of youth… What will become of their love while the clock keeps ticking away in Takuma’s life?

Comments: I finally got to see this. If anyone else is interested try streaming here. I just consumed half of the remaining tissue roll in my room.

I’m happy to see Natsuki Harada here. She also starred in the live action adaptation of Honey and Clover as Ayumi Yamada. And Mao Inoue of course.

The casts did great justice with the plot and drama even though it was kind of different from its manga adaptation. The drama brought many people in tears as well as bringing them a portion of what life,love and death truly means.

I hope we get to see these kinds of movies in the future. I actually started a few live actions so I might post more about them after I finish those. (I hope) :)
