1. and she can sing too... [Rating: 8/10]
A very watchable, if predictably sentimental, drama.

'Mana-chan' is adorable (of course...) AND you get to hear her sing. Etsushi Toyokawa is a great actor, who is now aging gracefully (wow.. can he really be the same young buck who burnt up the screen in �‚���..?)

Nothing really done badly here. It's the type of show one will like basically depending on how they feel about the subject matter. Surprisingly it doesn't try to be too heavy handed in dealing with said subject matter, which was a pleasant surprise for me. The most impressive thing is the acting of the little girl. It's hard to believe that an eight year old could perform in such a role at all, let alone carry the weight of the whole show, as she does so well.

Similar to the "terminal illness" type dramas, except the illness isn't terminal which means by the third episode you pretty much know how this is going to turn out.
But still, not nearly as chessy as they could have made it although it did have its moments. All the actors did their best, given what they had to work with.

I love family drama. Ashida Mana is one of the best kid actress. This is a sad drama actually but conveyed in a positive way for us to watch.

Well-handled treatment of Alzheimer's. The interplay between the characters was believable & key to the story. Incredible bond between father & daughter.
