1 Litre Of Tears

15-year-old Ikeuchi Aya was an ordinary girl, the daughter of a family who works at a tofu shop, and a soon-to-be high schooler. However, lately, strange things have been happening to Aya. She has been falling down often and has been walking funny. Her mother, Shioka, takes Aya to see the doctor, and he tells Shioka that Aya has spinocerebellar degeneration - a terrible disease where the brain gradually deteriorates to the point where the victim cannot walk, speak, write, or eat. However it does not affect the mind. How will Aya react when told about her disease? And how will Aya live from now on?

This beautifully moving drama is based on the real-life struggles of a 15-year-old girl named Aya who suffered from an incurable disease, but lived life to the fullest until her death at 25. The script is based on the diary Aya kept writing until she could no longer hold a pen. The book that later followed entitled “One Litre of Tears" has sold over 1.1 million copies in Japan alone.

Aya's only wish was “to live." By carefully depicting Aya's earnest desire to live, and the love of her family, friends, and lover, the drama, “One Litre of Tears" wishes to deliver her simple but strong message: “Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing." ---Fuji TV

I just finished watching the episode 9 and things just keep getting worse. Seeing Aya in a wheelchair always kills me and it's so sad seeing Aya lose all her abilities one by one  :(  
And like Aya said earlier, going to the disability school means that her time is running out.  I was so happy that Ako got in Higashikou but they didn't put enough emphasis on that scene. It was one of the few positive things that has happened in the series but it was way too short:

Ako: "Yay, I got in"
Aya: *smiles*
The End
:evil:

The saddest scene so far:


:cry:  :cry:  :cry:
Fortunately Asou-kun didn't abandon her :)


 :heart:  :cry:

The episode 10 preview looked too sad and heartbreaking but still I can't wait to see it  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Yeah, episode 9 was awesome. I'm glad to see that Asou-kun, even when realizing what the future will hold for him and Aya, still decided to stay by her side. It's only going to get harder for them, so I guess that just shows how powerful love is.

Yeesh, I don't know if I'm going to be able to mentally handle next week's episode.  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:   X_X

finally caught out to everything I downloaded from Masa.
Once again thanks for your files!!!

man.... When watching each episode I have to cry at least 2-3 times average. I'm actually getting my mention state ready to watch 10 and 11 (later), in case the story gets extreme sad.

well if they do follow the truth of what real Aya happened, she should die at the last episode... like what I said, I'm getting myself ready if this is how they end the story. It will be the saddest j-dorama I've ever watch!!!

She's only 15-17 in the drama and the real Aya died at the age of 25 so she could end up being like Yuka's dad. However I think that Aya's gonna die in the last episode to make the ending more powerful. Either way it's gonna be  just too fucking sad :cry:

There, I'm all caught up. Thanks for providing episodes 5-9, Masa. BT was darn slow. >_>

I'm getting all down watching Aya's progress getting worse. It's almost going too fast.  :(

so sad when she's like..."I have nowhere else to go now" and "There's nothing I can do anymore".

From the preview, it doesn't seem like she's gonna die but it would be more dramatic if she did.
