Hey guys, I’m back with another review! To start off, here is a short summary! 1 Litre of Tears (yes litre is spelled that way) is an old Japanese drama from 2005. It tells the story of a 15 year old girl named Aya Ikeuchi (Ikeuchi is the last name) who is entering high school and is diagnosed with an incurable disease. This disease is called “Spinocerebellar Degeneration” and this illness limits the victim any type of movement. As time passes on, Aya will not be able to walk, speak, write, or eat. She will be confided to her bed. Basically, this drama is about the hardships of a young teenager who is facing an illness when she should really be enjoying the best time of her life. It is based on a true story.
