Please let the song load and listen to it before reading this, it creates the mood if you have not watched one litre of tears also known as Ichi Rttoru no Namida,
When was the last time you watch a movie and started cying? when was the last time you felt really sad about something? when was the last time you think all hope is gone? when was the last you think that nothing is ever gonna be ok again, to me alot of those mentioned i have not felt (well for me I said alot,not all) sometimes I do feel like giving up in life or just giving up doing something, aren’t we all humans, ask yourself ? have you given up on anything? well Ikuechi Aya did not give up on anyhthing at all, she strive to better herself and challenge.
This is a blog about Aya Kitō (木藤亜也), The plot is based on the true story of a Japanese girl named Aya Kito (木藤亜也, July 19, 1962 – May 23, 1988), who had the a spinalcerebeller degeneration 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 and friends. Her diary 1 Litre of Tears was published shortly before her death. It encouraged many people, healthy or diseased, because of its inspiring and courageous messages. As Aya wrote, "Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing."
As I was told by Alvin to watch this sob story, I was headstrong and didn’t want to, cause I dont believe in Sob stories, one day I was just curious when Alvin told me he cried out while watching the drama, so I guess it must be really good, and indeed I did watched it, But I didn’t cry ok, i shed a few tears for a few scenes but I did not cry, yes call me heartless, (ok ok .. episode 10 made me cry out as I felt that its really unfair for god to take a life away from a person so innocent and have so much ahead of her) i don’t know if I will cry one litre of tears on Epi 11 as, people review that as the saddest. Yup there is only 11 episodes and its only about 1 hour long each, The drama is so captivating till i can’t stop watching it from hours to hours end, it was 4am in the morning and i finished epi 9 and yet i want to continue, but i went to sleep and i woke up continuing 10, now as I am waiting for Epi 11 to load, I shall figured I write about Aya’s inspiration to everyone. Her dairy sold a whopping 18,000,000 in Japan and now its has translated version of chinese and i think they are translating a english version. Till then you can go buy the dairy in Japanese or Chinese or wait till the English like me, there are a few website that translate her dairy, here is two that i visits Dairy of Aya and onelitre in Xanga (click on any one)
WARNING: if you plan to watch this drama, make sure you have a box of tissue or a shoulder to cry on.
That peson is the real Kito Aya, her photograph of her 11 years dairy would be shown on all the ending episodes, Rest in Peace Aya, you definitly have changed alot of people’s life,
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."
