"I came across this story by accident...and I couldn't be happier about it. I don't know Japanese but I was priviledged enough to watch a subtitled version of the first season and I'll recommend it to anyone who will listen. lol In fact, that's why I'm here. It was a storytelling experience that almost never happens for me. It's rare to find a story that speaks so honestly of true love, loss, heartache, healing...that speaks of life and the inner turmoil of human hearts. Of course it begins as a teenage love story and who hasn't experienced that? The feelings you walk away with after watching this story are overwhelming and palpable. I'm a lover of good, character driven stories. This is it, my friends. The characters are layered and charming. The story has all the emotional elements required to linger on well after it's over. It's sad, happy, funny, and inspirational.
What happens when inexperienced 15 year old Nanami Takahashi falls for the most popular boy in school, who's heart's been wounded by the death of his cheating first love? Motoharu Yano was not expecting to be able to let another person into his heart again, but when he does he has trouble being honest and facing his past mistakes...that is, until he realizes he could lose the one girl he's lived his life to meet. And what happens when your best friend is in love with the same girl? What happens when you have to choose between the right thing to do and the most important person in your heart? Can you find the love of your life in high school?
It's a story that leaves you crying at the end of the first season and begging to know what the future holds for Nanami and Yano."
