This is a very good plot, but the settings for a 10years old, I think it's too far, but the story is very sad and demanding you to watch the continuance, so it's worth watching when you really just want to watch something sad. I don't recommend this when you are down and blue. Makes you feel worse

A classic of Japanese drama if ever there was one. It does come of as sort of a rip-off of several other classic things, like the Dog of Flanders or Little Orphan Annie. There's also a lot of ridiculousness, particularly most of the stuff her dog does. The grown up's evils don't come off as humorous in spite of being quite over the top. The young star's acting is likewise convincing. This all adds up to a surprisingly realistic story, dog included. Though it's certainly on the "cartoonish" side.

If there was a museum of Japanese drama, this would be the second exhibit right after Oshin.

I watched this years ago and I don't remember much about the storyline except that it was quite dark. Adachi Yumi was really good here and carries the show along nicely, I'm looking at the actors listing and I only remember her mother and stepfather. I don't remember Hosaka Naoki in this! >_< Erm... I think Yumi has the type of features that is adorable as a kid but looks weird when older....... *runs away*

I actually caught this drama on TV from the middle so have no idea what really happens. But I do recall it being a story about a girl who wants nothing but money. She doesn't want you to feel sorry for her, just give her money. The parts i watched were very touching.

really liked this drama! I watched this drama when the primary school and really inspired by Suzu that despite the chaotic family circumstances and remain trapped in poverty but not in despair but to steal his actions should not be imitated^^

One of the earlier Jdorama I've watched. I feel that it isn't really that nice but continue to watch it due to Adachi Yumi. One of my earliest idol. Maybe it is because I was too young to comprehend this drama at that time.

Very good but I wimped out after 3 episodes. I didn't find the supporting characters particularly interesting though, and it would have been easier to watch if it was more condensed.

This drama was absolutely the greatest. It is really sad, but Suzu deals with everything so well and always acts so cheerful. It made me think of how lucky we all are out there and how ungrateful we can be. I know in the world there would be many people as unfortunate as Suzu.
