A pair of half-brothers has been living quite distinct lives. The younger has loose ties with the underground world and maintains little contact with the family. The elder, who is autistic but highly artistic, works in a factory. After losing his job, the elder brother moves in with his younger one. Though initially negative about the new burden on his shoulders, the younger brother�fs heart softens toward his autistic relative. Just when things are going smoothly, the elder is diagnosed with blood cancer and needs a transfusion. A futile search for their father prompts a fallback on shady connections to raise the money for the treatment.

1. Sad....but a touching story [Rating: 7/10]
The story seemed to be weird at first However, it is quite a good story, especially the part between the brothers but I still hope the ending would be better. I think that the actors ( koichi domoto, uchida yuki...) acted well in this dorama. No spoilers here but I to say that I felt very sad after the last scene of the last episode, if only that could be changed..

2. worth a watch [Rating: 7/10]
bought this mainly to see koichi's acting skills, but soon realise that that's more to the story and seriously think that fujii fumiya actually got my attention due to his good portray of the mentally retarded character. And the sentence he is always talking about is very meaningful, watch it till the end to find out how it relates to the whole drama.

3. Drama that makes me think of the meaning of life [Rating: 10/10]
Watching this drama, makes me think..what is the true meaning of life. Feel how lonely Tetsuro is, how tough he is when he try to go through his life even there its really hard for him~~
Koichi really impressed me with him. Can't believe in the age of 23 he can act as someone 30.Thats the huge different between him and Tsuyo~

4. A Drama Worth Watching [Rating: 8/10]
koichi shines as the "hooligan" with the cool exterior but a heart of gold. a good show that portrays the sensitive relationship between a pair of half-brothers. fuji fumiya put in a good effort as the autistic teru, the one person who changed the lives of all the people around him. good storyline and a great cast!

A great drama, I loved it, I recommend it. Koichi's act was very cool but the last episode was so ridiculous, I don't like the ending �ʁ�

I don't think I've ever felt so lonely after a dorama before. Unlike all the other reputed "sad" doramas, this one really leaves you feeling like you've lost a bit of yourself. And Koichi's final line... you can't help but believe it yourself too. So tragic, yet so mesmerising. Good job to the entire cast. One of my favourites.
2. Comments by dnie [Rating: 8/10]
one of Koichi's best effort!! he certainly has become better in his acting, but was overshadowed by the actor who played his handicapped brother..anyway, it is a good dorama..reminds me a lot of Cheap Love. Kinda like Uchida Yuki in this one, she plays a..sweet and kind girl but sadly..
3. Comments by Tiffany [Rating: 6/10]
It was a very touching dorama! At times, I was somewhat confused about what was going on though. Fujii Fumiya gave a wonderful and very believable performance. It was able to get me teary-eyed at certain points... However, it wasn't able to completely draw me in.

Pretty sad. One suppose to cry 2 times per episode: once for the plot and another for the ending theme, this was what Koichi said in the interview lol
