[Drama] 1 Litre of Tears

Stunning, sadden, moving, inspiring, encouraging. You name it.

Spinocerebellar ataxia is the name of disease that Ikeuchi Aya suffered during the last 10 years of her life.

Penyakit ini adalah kelainan pada otak kecil sehingga menyebabkan penderitanya sedikit demi sedikit kehilangan kemampuan untuk menggerakkan anggota tubuh sesuai dengan keinginan mereka. Awalnya “hanya” kesulitan untuk bergerak refleks dan anggota tubuh lainnya seperti mengambil barang, menuang air tidak tepat dll, kemudian kesulitan berjalan, lalu kesulitan menelan, berbicara, sampai akhirnya hanya dapat berbaring di ranjang saja.

I browsed the internet to find the disease and I found it. Oh, God! I cannot imagine myself being on such condition… It is like… dying softly! I cannot even imagine such horrible disease exists.


This dramatic, beautifully written Japanese drama was based on Aya’s diary she wrote during her life. The book itself has been sold over a million copies at Japan alone—I am looking forward to having one ^ ^

It depicted how Aya went through this terrible condition, trying to get along with it with smile on her face. Aya was afflicted with adversity since she was 15 and died at the age of 25. It happened around 29 years ago—I hope now there has been treatment for this dreadful illness.

I don’t know whether the whole story really happened during her short life or not, but if it did, it then was so nice to have her whole family (mom, dad, Ako, Hiro, and Rika), doctor, and at the most, Asou-kun on her side until the last breath of her life…
