Really surpassed all of my expectations. They couldn't have picked a better cast for this drama... The leads, Sawajiri Erika and Nishikido Ryo, were nothing short of stunning onscreen. Sawajiri is amazing when she smiles, amazing when she cries, amazing when she has that determined look on her face... she really was the perfect actress for this role. As for Nishikido... to be honest, I didn't warm up to his character at first. He was always so cold. But as the drama went on, I saw that he was anything but that.
Sawajiri and Nishikido -- awesome, awesome acting. There was just so much life behind them, so much intelligence, so much uniqueness. I can't put it into words, you just have to watch to show.
And this drama has just about the BEST supporting cast I've ever seen: Yakushimaru Hiroko, Aya's mother; Jinnai Takanori, Aya's father; Narumi Riko, Aya's sister; and Fujiki Naohito, Aya's doctor. These four supporting characters had acting quality of such high-calibre that they're on par with the lead actors of many other dramas. There are so many scenes where these actors shine so brightly... agh, just watch the show. :)
I've talked about Ichi Ritoru no Namida from a pure "actors" view, where I just gave my impressions on the actors and their acting. But just because I haven't talked about the main plot doesn't mean it's not worth talking about... it's just that... well, no spoilers. ;) Rest assured, this drama has both the good acting and the strong story -- Ichi Ritoru no Namida is the whole, beautiful package.
Before this turns into a rant (if it hasn't already ^^')... let me end by saying -- This drama blew me away. I double-clicked on the first episode not expecting ANYTHING. I came away from the last episode amazed and humbled at the message of this drama and the power with which it was communicated. If you could only watch one drama this year, make it this one!
A very emotionally gripping drama. The interaction with the characters, especially Aya, was ever-present. At times, you would just wish you could jump into the scene and bare at least half the pain for Aya.
The actors/actresses in Ichi ritoru did an exceptional job. In particular praise, Sawajiri Erika and Yakushimaru Hiroko(Shioka) were outstanding. The mother plays the role so well in the nurturing of her children. While everytime when Aya was crying, I was crying WITH her or at least tearful. It is indeed heartbreaking to see Aya lose her abilities of moving around freely and all the other things she must give up as a result of her disease. She is such a great person and brave fighter, so at the time when EVEN she collaspes; her supporters can feel nothing but hopelessness and injustice (as to why she is the chosen one of this disease).
One of the saddest dramas you'll ever come upon. But due to the way it humbles the viewer, it makes you feel that you are seeing the scenes from a first person view. And its amazing how much the show prompts the viewers to deeply sympathise with the characters. Ichi Ritoru is definitely one of the most influential, and profound dramas, ever. It communicates very well with the viewers through courage, love and despair. A must watch!
This drama kills me emotionally, but it's so beautiful and uplifting that it really doesn't matter. Erika is absolutely amazing in this. After watching this drama, I have to say that it's THE best drama I've ever seen (especially in terms of how much it has affected me). It's told from such a tender and loving viewpoint, from a young girl who tries to live life despite her illness and to live happily at that. It will brutally shatter your heart to pieces, but it will also inspire you in ways that can't be explained... we are taken on a journey, from the first moments of Aya's discovery of her illness to when it all ends. We watch her laugh, we watch her cry, we watch her battle the illness like she were our own friend. The OST is wonderful, but I'm very wary of listening to it because it always makes me cry. Anybody who doesn't watch 1LOT is missing out BIG TIME.
God! Feels like I cried more than "1 liter of tears"!!!!!! Hell!... I just finished watching it and my eyes are so red. Plus, I ran out of tissues. How can you carry on with your life just as usual after watching this? I knew what the ending was going to be like. I had expected it all since the beginning. And yet....
I dont know what to feel. What if it happened to me? Will I also gradually die along with others that have the same disease? Would I be afraid everyday? Will I struggle and fight to live a little bit longer everyday?
I feel like yelling, screaming with all my lungs, with all my heart. I really want to get rid of this painful and heavy dullness. I want to get rid of all this sadness I have accumulated along this drama...
Sorry for getting too emotional. I guess I must be tired.
I was profoundly touched. Rest in peace Aya.
This dorama is unbelievably great, I dont know how one could put this dorama into words.
It is really a dorama that not just only touches you (i cried in each episode eccept for the first) but makes you think about a lot of diffent aspects with regard to life. One really starts to rethink and you will definitely change after watching "One litre of tears", you will start to appreciate your life and other people. It will change you. It is just great I would watch it over and over again. I cant describe how wonderful "One litre of tears" is. It will motivate to live your life the way you want to. It is really a great dorama everybody should watch, not only dorama viewers but everybody, it a great real-life story about a very very strong young woman who inspired a lot of people. Incredible!
based on true strory, this drama is about aya's life. a young girl who suffered from Spinocerebellar Atrophy, is a rare neurological disorder of the central nervous system. It is the slow degeneration of certain areas of the brain often associated with poor coordination of hands, speech, and eye movements. to date, there is no known cure for this condition.i must admit that it is very hard not to cry when i was watching how she struggled and fought her disease and how she wrote her deepest thoughts until the last day she could hold a pen, she did not give up hope.. she was strong inside. It brings me strength and motivation in my life. Arigatoo Aya.
This is the first full drama that I watched while living in Japan. I would watch this with my friends that understood little Japanese, so they thought it was weird when I would start to cry a little. This drama left a mark in me that will not be removed. The story is so sad and well portrayed that I could feel their emotions. All of the actors and actresses did a wonderful job, but I have to say that Sawajiri Erika did outstanding. The theme song, "K - Only Human" is also my favorite song, whenever I heard the song play in the show, it was hard for me to not feel some emotion. Best drama I have ever seen
words cannot explain how good this dorama was. not only this was based on the real story, actors did extremely well. I was suprised to see ryo nishikido acting this well. It was the first time for me to see ryo acting, and i admit i was NOT expecting much from him since he is just an idol. but GOSH, I couldn't take my eyes off of him. towards the end, I could tell that he was really crying because he coudnt do much for the girl exept being by her side... I now ABSOLUTLY RESPECT RYO for doing AMAZING JOB on his role, and I don't think he is just a pretty faced idol anymore.
Super sadness JDrame i've ever seen in my life. Great actress and actor especially Erika Sawajiri(I believe she will be next greatest actress in japan) her mother(shioka), father, asou-kun, sensei, ako, hiroki, rika. Great storyline, makes me cry every episodes. This drama make a huge impact in my life, trully i feel shame with my life regarding aya-san who struggle with courage. I'ts really worth to collect watch it again and again. So you can be a better person and life with happiness. In scale 1-10 i give score 10. Sughoooi desu.
Hontou ni arigato aya-san.
I thought Precious Time is sad but not until i watched Beautiful Life.
I thought that is the saddest drama but that changed after watching Orange Days.
This is it. I'd enough of sad dramas.
But, reviews and recommendations makes me want to watch this drama.
It was really a DRAMATIC drama, as a guy, i seldom shed a single tears for watching drama.
For this, i can't help it but feel for Aya.
and yes, i did shed 'a few' tears.
She really motivates with her strength.
i'm a hard-hearted guy(:p)... yet i cried when i watched this....
Erika will definitely become the next superstar.. juz like Kyoko Fukada with the Kamisama back then.... (both died at the end)...
Erika's acting juz stole everyone's heart... i mean.. that cute-innocent face, yet has a hard time...
i would like to see more of Erika in the future...
btw... is the cast for the other disabled girl, the same one who played the character Aya in the movie version?? i think so..
at first i didn't want to watch this drama because i knew how sad it would be. but the reviews for it was so good, that i had to watch it. this is such a touching, heartfelt drama. please tell me that i'm not the only one who cried while watching every single episode, even the 1st one!! the ending credits for each ep. is so sad cause it shows you pics of the real aya. and i have to say that watching this drama has made me a fan of nishikido ryou. he's such a cutie!!

At first I didnt konw if DL this drama or not, because it preview was sad. But then I decided to DL it n Watch IT...and then falled in love just with the first episode. It so good acting, all its so real, the characters, locations, situations, etc. Its really really sad, and make me cry so many times...the songs by Remioromen and K are just perfect for this drama. A Must WATCH!!! Love Erika Sawajiri acting!!!! This drama left a big message to all of us...
It goes without saying that this drama was a very touching one. What made it truly superb was the amazing acting done by the entire cast, not just any one person. From Erika Sawajiri's potrayal as Aya to the heart rendering performace of Aya's mother, everything was done in a way that evoked the viewers emotion. This was by far the best drama I have seen so far, making drama's like Beautiful life (which i watched later on, a bit dull)
This is a very very inspirational and touching drama! After watching it, it really changes your perspective on life, reminds us how lucky we are just to be alive and to have dreams that are possible to reach for...
A big congratz to the cast, they made the story very very convincing, every single emotion, every line in the drama...I seriously couldn't stop crying...right from episode 1 to 11!!!!!!!
It's good to be alive ^^v
This drama is awesome!! Similar to SekaChu, but I like this so much more b/c the main chara is a lot stronger and the main guy is cooler (not like, "without you, I can't live on"). The main actress really impressed me w/ her acting skills and Nishikido Ryou is just SO kakkoii here (^__^). I wanna see more of both their acting. Altho this drama is sad, it's also very uplifting. One of the best dramas I've seen.
One of the best Drama's I've ever seen...I have watch so many drama and never i felt this way...this drama is the only drama that can make me shed 1 litre tears.. I don't think any other drama can do the same..the storytelling was great and added her love scene making it way more better.... i can't find any other drama that as good as this...!! and Erika did well with Aya Character... 10/10 from me...
I voting cause this drama really got to me. I usually don't cry for dramas maybe a few, and its only one time. This drama had me in tears all the time. Never cried so much for any show or movie before.
By the end it felt like my tear ducts were empty and my face hurt.
Amazing story, with a great cast of actors. All of the characters grew on me. Especially Aya's dad.
10/10 this is a good one.
1 Litre Tears is based on real life story. I can feel the emotion the actress potrait. Very good acting skill and good story. This drama shows that how lucky we are as a healthy person thus we need to appreciate all the people around us and enjoy life as much as possible coz we have limited life time in this world. Life will be more meaningful with nice memories though it's short.
gJust being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing.h - Kito Aya
This 15 year old young girl who was able to face her disease bravely, wow.... i would have probably commited sucide if that happend to me, but to know that this is a drama is based on a true story, its really touching!
This drama has a great meaning, and becuase of it i am living life to the fullest!
This drama really motivates... Everything were great. The script, the quotes, the cast, the music... And it leaves a really big impression and impact in your heart. Even though Asou-Kun isn't real, I think the director and Ryo-chan himself made Asou Haruoto very realistic, not too perfect to be unbelievable. And I love all the songs! This drama is just wonderful.
I cried from episode 1 all the way to the last. It's not a tragic tragic plot that just wants to squeeze tears out from the audience. It's heartwarming and at the same time breaks your heart!! Makes you appreciate your health and life better. Gd values instilled, great soundtrack by K, great acting, heart-rending story without nonsensical tragedy. A classic!
I didnt knew that this show was so sad at first and I just wanted to watch it due to Erika and Ryo but crap! It really can make people cry even if u are not those who cry often. Erika did well in the show and since it is based on a true story, it makes the whole thing seem real. Good show with good plot and good looking main actors. What more do u ask for?
"Powdered snow, this heart that has transcended time is faltering
And yet, I want to continue to protect you" (trans by honyakukonyaku)
the love story between aya&haruto is fictional but the pain that aya went through is real.
don't be perturb by the sad theme
worth every single tears you will shed. this is a story about love, courage and strenght
|25. ||megumi s.|
BEAUTIFULLY done. very moving. it's not the typical drama about a love story with the twist being that one partner has a disease. although there is romance, the focus is on the heroine, and her and her family's emotional struggles as she progressively gets worse. everything about this drama is amazing: the acting, the music, the storyline, everything.
This drama is so amazing! (Superb in everything! to the cast.. music.. acting.. everything!) It really touches your heart. It will open your eyes and teach you lessons about life.. I have learnt so many things from this drama. It's so inspiring.. I really love it!... One of the greatest drama for me. I will never forget this drama in my entire life.
|27. ||Baka Senpai|
an excellent drama, promoting good moral values such as compassion, kindness, patience, thanksgiving and sympathy.
sawajiri erika will have trouble topping herself again with the superb performance she gave in this drama.
ooo and please pay attention to episode 6 when ako owns hiro for aya's sake...sucha touching scene!!! definitely in my top 5.
depressing is not the word that describes Ichi rittoru. rather, it makes you want to live life to the fullest. it's beautiful in many aspects..and the casts light up the story. whether you like dramas or not, or whether this is the type of drama you like watching, i would suggest it just because it's THAT powerful. Ichi rittoru humbles you.
dear lordy.. this was one HECK of a tear jerker.. i mean seriously.. cried in EVERY EPISODE! i dont know how thats possible. but i managed to do it!!! soo sad.. sooo touching makes you appreciate what you have!!!
i lOVE RYo!!! hes a hottie in this! soo cooL! i love him!! and the girl was pretty! watch it! it touches your SOUL!!!!
This series was almost too painful to watch at times, but it was also very very good. Erika Sawajiri's performance was excellent, and she really made you feel for her. I watched the 1st 4 episodes and then had to take a break for awhile, because I was in tears every one of them, and it really wore me out. Really emotional stuff!
Storytelling at its best! Erika Sawajiri carries her role to perfection and her mother is no less impressive. Add to that one of the most poignant and realistic scripts I've ever seen for these sadder doramas and you get one incredible series. Completely deserving of a perfect score and for sure one of my top jdorama picks.
This drama is the first drama ever that I shed my tears. I love the acting from Sawajiri Erika, she is sooooo great in it, not to mention also the music from the drama are just awesome. Everything you want from a japanese drama is here, tears, laughter, frendship, love, courage, its a whole package. WELL@cnmd!!!!
this drama is the best. nothing can be compared to it. it is absolutely a tear machine, no questions about it. furthermore, it shows the good and bad side of people's reaction to the disabled and importance of family giving encouragement to one another to make life easier for aya to live. this is a good drama. superb
As the first JDrama I ever saw, Ichi Ritoru no Namida has left a special place in my heart. In all honesty, it is perhaps the greatest drama ever made. The tragic but hopeful story of Aya really made me assess my own life and realize how well-off most of us really are. Great acting by all of those involved.
tears, tears, lots of tears when watching this drama, i shed so many tears while watching it, no wonder they called it diary w tears, so sad story, i think both leading actor/ess did quite a good job in potraying e character, although i personally think e leading actress can brush up a bit in her acting
Words cannot begin to describe the emotions i was going through while watching 1 litre of tears. I haven't cried like this for 10 years! It was a pleasure to watch Sawajiri Erika playing Aya, she's just one of the most awesome actresses I have ever seen. Plus she's smoking hot ;-) It's a masterpiece!!
the tears were endless when i saw this show
such an inspirational story
i admire aya so much and the strength she has
and i think that everyone should watch this drama
it has changed the way i think about life
this drama made me come back to jdramas and exposed me to ryo and his awesomeness ^^
An incredibly casted, well-acted, tearjerker of a drama, 1 Litre of Tears is. Right from the start you can sense the tone the drama sets up. Erika Sawijiri is absolutely terrific in the role giving us reasons to be thankful for life. One of the best japanese dramas I've ever seen
Great Dorama. Very touching and so sad, but at the same time it has a kind of positive message about life. You must live your life to the fullest. the cast make a very good performance, specially Erika Sawajiri.
"What's wrong with falling down?...You can always stad up again"
The most beautiful drama ever watched.
based on a true story, but contains lots of imagined things.
I seriously recommand this series, and better: buy her diary.....but be prepared to cry...
Since i discovered this story, i can't live withtout thinking about Aya.....
this drama should be number one. its the saddest, most poignant and touching drama ever and surpasses all the rest in the way that it makes you realize your own life, self worth and making sure you live your life to the fullest. EVERYONE WATCH THIS DRAMA! YOU WONT REGRET IT
I'll vote it as the best drama for 2005. Life-altering drama. An extremely wonderful performance put up by Erika and Ryo. OST is awesome, and scenes are very well put together. This is a drama definitely not to be missed. A loss to the spiritual self if one missed it IMO. :)
First drama I ever cried in! My gosh, it was so touching, especially since it's based off a true story! I was so touched when I found at the Ryo Nishikido's character was added in as a request from the mother... because Aya never had any boy fall in love with her! T^T
i think it's my first time watching an essentially serious jdorama based on real events. I was so amazed at the acting skill everyone displayed. It was also my first time seeing Ryo on screen...and he definately got my gratitude and praise ^-^. All around great drama!
Ryo, Fujiki... what more can you ask in a drama...haha
Actually I didn't choose to watch this drama for them, more because when I saw the preview I knew I would love this drama, even if it means I'll cry a long time. I mean the title implies we'll cry right...haha
if you haven't seen Ichi Ritoru no Namida then you can't say you have seen the best jdrama yet. no exaggeration, definitely won any other shows i've seen hands down. it shines in every possible aspect (plot, ost, cast). i'll let the show do the rest of the talking.
Ok.. It's sad.. And touching. Same as what everyone says. I didn't cry as much as them, I think.. Maybe because I watched it on youtube. Damn. So wanna buy the VCD or DVD. But anyway, I still have to say it's really good although I only watched up to episode 5. :))
Very touching story which made me cry a lot (even Sekachuu which stays my favorite drama didn't me feel that). An excellent tragic drama accompanied with good musics. I liked a lot all actors' performances. A solid morale is advised to watch Ichi Ritoru no Namida.
This is probably my 1st or 2nd favorite drama. It was touching, heart warming and totally different. The relationships built up in the show are ones you will never forget. I even cried! It's based on a true story so no one should miss out on this incredible drama.
This drama is just wonderful. It lets you rethink your view of life and gives you courage too.
The way how the actors act is also impressive. You can really feel with every character.
"One Litre of Tears" is a really touching story and a must-see for everyone!
This dorama is sad, and if your into that thing then watch it. I found it good, but sad isnt really my thing. I liked it tho and thats what counts. It had good acting and a true story line which made it even sadder. When it comes down to it, its a good dorama.
The 1st J-dorama I've ever seen. Beautiful and sad plus it was based on a true story. The actors that were playing the main characters did a great job. I cried every single episode. That dorama can really make you think about your life in a different way.
I want to give a vote to a drama in the category "super sadness", I've also watched "Beautiful Life", "Summer Snow", "Kamisama, mou sukoshi dake" and "Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu", by now "1 litres of tears" is the champion of the super sadness.
This is one of the most beautiful, touching dramas I have ever seen. It's an incredible story of overcoming tragedy and finding the will to live on. It's really amazing. It's so heartwrenching and incredible. Should be on everyone's must see list.
One of 2005's best drama..Erika-san did an awesome job as the lead..I love how the story was written..it shows the progression and how it affects her and her family..it's inspirational..reminds you not to give up and not to take things for granted
This is one of the best I have watched. It's very touching and inspirational. I cried like crazy! I have never cried so much for a drama. The cast is amazing and I love all of them. A lot of love and human emotions that can touch anyone's heart...
I can't believe how much I've cried watching this drama! It's without a doubt one of the most touching and sad dramas I've ever watched, and not to mention Erika's and Ryo's impressive acting skills. A very cute couple. Definitely a must watch!
|58. ||Kawaii Kinomoto|
so sad and cute!! the love between aya and haruto is so pure and cute!! aya-chan's story is so sad and it really makes you appreciate the things we take for granted... just life is such a beautiful thing! i cried more than 1 litre of tears
This has changed my life. It made me sign up to be an organ donator. It made me apply for a medical school after years of working in totally other industry. This drama should be part of everyone's education. It really is that good. 11/10.
Ok. so maybe you wont shed 1 litre of tears watching this show.
But im sure it does tug at your heartstrings.
Ryo was just the guy for the character.
Watch if you think your life is meaningless and u dont really wanna live it.
This is the best drama I have ever seen in my whole life!!! Congratulations to the production teams, and of course to all casts. Totally make me think twice on my purpose in life. I cried all the way watching this drama...SUPERB!!!!!
HEARTWRENCHING-TEARJEARKING-FEEL SO GOOD AND BAD DORAMA. I loved this dorama and as a guy...I found myself wiping the corner of my eyes in some episodes and more amongst the closing one... WHAT A SAD THEME SONG...but I love it!
You can't miss this drama if you are a J-drama fan. It is one of the most touching drama I have seen so far. Family, friends, lover.... even most of time, it will make you feel sad and cry, it might change your view of life.
Superb drama, sad but encouraging!! The best Ihave seen. Furthermore Erika Sawajiri is extremely cute...^_^ And I was able to encourage lots of friends to see this and they couldn't agree more. Even the Dorama haters...*_^
Definitely the best dorama for me. Simply because the message is clear, and the casts have great chemistry. Erika is not just a pretty face with a good body, but she CAN act soo well.
Worth-watching and worth crying for.
This is really a DRAMATIC drama, you can't help it but feel sad for Aya. She really motivates people with her strength and quotes. Favourite quote: "While other people struggling for their future, I'm struggling to live."
I already have seen a lot of JDoramas, but Ichi Ritoru no Namida is the only one I voted for.
Its really touching and a sentimentally story of a really greater person.
Lets go for a walk Aya, wherever you are...
wow, this drama is a must see. It's so good and I cried at least 1 litre of tears in each episode!! Erika is really cute too, and a good actress. This drama made me like Ryo too.
I must read the book!! Love it! <3
LOOOOOOOOOOOVE sawajiri erika-chan..she's soooo kawaii and she CAN really act!! she took my heart the minute i saw her!! and frankly..who doesn't like this story!! is sooo touching!! erika-chan..daisuki!! o^___^o
because it is one of the most poignant jdramas of all time. and because it has magnificent lead actors (erika & ryo), who despite their youth were able to deliver powerful performances. wasurerarenain desu.
Simply put, the most powerful drama I've seen. The story, the acting, especially from Erika Sawajiri makes this the must see j-dorama. If you don't shed a tear watching this, you don't have a heart! 10/10
Moved straight to the top of my favourites list! This is one of the most moving doramas I've ever seen. It makes you want to cherish life, and live to the fullest. A must watch! Beautiful in it's own way.
If you don't cry in front of this heartbreaking drama you're a heartless robot. I cried one litre of tears. Take some hankies for your lachrymal flow of tears before you start watching this doleful drama.
Tearjerkers aren't really my thing, and truthfully, I didn't cry when watching it. But the next day, just thinking about it, I couldn't control my tears. The power and the tragedy...absolutely touching.
Very very touching story.But I was mesmerised by the strength and determination of the main actress in the show.It seems almost impossible for any living human to have so much detemination to survive...
I cried more than 1 litre of tears when I watched this drama. From the first to last episode.....nonstop.....It's one of the most touching drama I've ever seen. Asou and Aya look so good together.
Very touching and true to life--this was a drama that I really enjoyed watching despite watching Aya suffer throughout the series.. Because this was a sad story, I had a box of tissues nearby!
The saddest drama I ever watched...T_T
I'm a guy and I cried more then a liter...
The story is very touching and shows even though you are dying there's something you can do to help others.
One of the greatest story ever... Very sad and touchy... Never thougt that nishikido Ryo can playa character such Asou Haruto. He proves that he'll going to be a great actor in the future...
This drama taught a lot of lessons - the importance of family, friends and especially the blessings we always take for granted... a wonderful and emotional drama with talented young actors.
Well, actually my first reason I watched this dorama is because Sawajiri Erika was the main actress in this dorama... But after I watched it all, I found that this dorama are really good..
I cry a lot watched this drama. Sawajiri Erika as Aya is so touch. She can potray her role very well. I give 10/10 for this drama. very motivated and sad. Ryo also play his role very well.
It was beautifully done, the acting was amazing and the storyline incredibly sad. I loved watching it even though it made me cry almost every episode. A touching and inspirational JDroama
A real touching dorama. Nice story, nice acts(beside Nishikido), nice theme songs. This is definitely a must-seen by everyone!! Erika was so great!! I love Fujiki Naohito too in here ^ ^.
so sad story I ever wacth(T_T). I feel like I'm glad I'm still alive ib tthis world couse I never get desease! If I like aya I want to die with no hope in my future or in my life ever!!
One of the most heartfelt dramas I have ever seen. A truly beautiful story that gives you hope. The actors amazed me, especially Erika who played Aya-as beautiful as she is talented.
Extremely sad, but very very good at the same time. This dorama makes you appreciate life. Superb acting by Erika and Ryo. I recommend this dorama to anyone who hasn't seen it.
Deeply touching & inspirational series based on a true story. Great performance from all characters esp. Erika sawajiri & her mum. Definetly worth watching more than once.
Very heartwarming and sad drama starring Sawajiri Erika and Nishikido Ryo. I think they both did a great job, especially Erika. I'd recommend it to everyone. Very inspiriational.
everybody in the world should watch this dorama...it is not just an ordinary dorama...i learn something from this dorama...i have cried several times when i watch this dorama...
10/10 -- Definitely THE best drama! It's got sentiments, feelings and meaningfulness...is that a word? Anyway, a must see. If you haven't seen it, you're definitely missing out!
1 of the best drama i hav seen. It will change the whole prospective of your life. You will act differently, hear things differently n see things differently....don't miss it.
I'm yet to be moved by a series as much as "One Litre Of Tears." Beautiful, touching, all the emotions that make you look at life in a completely different perspective. Aya <3
i love crying...
life have it's end..wat is important is how we're leading it...
base on a true story,dis drama really taught me the reality of life
dis drama is so sad...
super duper sad dorama i ever seen. many things you can learn by wathing this drama, esspecially how to cherish your live when you life, because you never konw when you die.
inspirational. make you realize how lucky you are to be able to breath and live, how there're unfortunate people somewhere in the world, if they can be strong why don't you?
This is one drama which can wake up most people perception of having things for granted. Even tho it's seems natural to all. Great Show and Cast definitely a MUST see drama
I cried ceaselessly, but even so, I left the show feeling as if I had been given a new lease on life. Very touching and encouraging. Excellent OST - you must hear Konayuki!
Slighty better than summer snow maybe because of the fact that it was based on a true story. Starting from the earlier episodes you'll already get sad. nonetheless great!!
the drama was so heartbreaking.. i cried alot.. and it was based on a true story that made me more sad.. the whole cast did an awesome job! my number one drama until now!
Well-written plot with great acting from all involved, nothing more can be said, except more than 1 litres of tears have been shed around the world who have watched this!
very touching T_T cried in every eps....boohoo...~ based on true story which makes it better, very meaningful about life and all....learnt a lot! ^^ great music too!
The best jdrama forever! It is awesome, such a great drama, enjoyed every episode, also cried almost in every episode. My favourite jdrama!!! Loving it...till death!
10/10 - Easily. Still, only "Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu" is sadder -- but not by a lot. I hope I can rise above my illness should I become sick like Aya.
One of the best dramas I've ever seen. The cast was great and so was the story. I've never seen a drama that stirred my emotions so much! A definite must watch.
This drama is just...excellent ! I can't wait for le last ep.... Actors are great, and I cry all the times ... I thinks it's not juste " one" litre of tears...
one of the best drama i've ever seen.. cried a lot when watched this.. aya-nee so kawaii.. what a nice story with great flow, made me can't stop watched it..

my all-time favourite drama!! this is the first time that i've cried in every episode!! Brilliant and tear-jerking! *bows*
The soundtrack is great too!
This drama had it all... I hate to say the cliche, but "I laughed, I cried [ALOT]," and I loved it... One of the best series I've seen in a long time...
love it~ great characters touching story. i loved aya to asou to ako to rika to hiroki to okaasan to otusan to sensei... thinking bout it makes me sad =*(
I cried so hard for this show even though I was not a fan of any artiste in this show. The plot is strong and although cliched at times, it was very real.
Best drama i had been watched for last 10 years, a must watch jap drama, touching , sad and alot of tears drama , prepare yourself with lot of tissue..:)
A really nice drama that I've watch this year, makes me really cry like there's no tmr... great acting from both Erika Sawajiri and also
i normally dont cry, but this drama had me BAWLING! everyone is amazing in this, but ryo really stood out to me. he is more than just a pretty boy!!
Really the most sad and beautiful show i'vve ever seen!! its a MUST WATCH show!! for anyone and Erika is kowaii in it ^^ and her acting is so good~
Definitely heart moving, mostly heart breaking. Sawajiri Erika's performance is impressive. It is definitely a must see. Based upon a real story.
One of the most engaging and sad stories. Great performances from Sawajiri Erika and Nishikido Ryo. And it doesn't hurt that they're both hot. =]
I prepared lots of tissue just for this drama ...
A very superb touching story, taught me a lesson on how to appreciate life and also love ones
Absolutely life altering drama. The music was brilliant, actors were superb and best of all, it makes you appreciate your loved ones even more.
|120. ||Yuumei Rei|
My first drama. Beatiful and sad story... makes you think about how well you spend your life. Great acting of Sawajiri Erika in this hard role.
Wahh, so sad... Feel sorry for Aya-chan.. But till now its a great drama with sad but interesting plot. I look forward to the next episodes.
I have never been more influenced by any drama in my entire life than this perfectly produced drama, from screen writing to acting to music.
This is hands-down the greatest dorama i have ever watched. Not just a tearjerker, it really makes you take a new outlook in your own life.
i loved it. a tear-jerker and quite entertaining at times. absolutley fabulous, touching and inspirational. great cast too. a must watch :)
Soo sad.. You really can't be human if you're not even slightly touched after watching this. Moving, unforgetable, beautiful.. it's.. WOW.
the saddest thing ILve ever watched.
I donLt like very much sad doramas but this one is simply beautiful - all I can say.
From the very 1st episode, i was hooked on to this drama.. I almost cried in every episode.. really a touching & heartwarming drama
Great acting by the casts. The story is so tragic, but also inspiring. A life-altering drama for me, and made me cry 1 litre of tears.
Some of the best stuff i've ever seen, cried the entire time, was depressed a whole week after i'd seen it. (watched it all in one go)
this drama made me cry... ohh... i love her story...a very touching story... "Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing."
its drama is really good!!
at first I only wanna see Ryo,
then found out its actually a good story~
(plus Ryo-chan is inside!!><)
Perfect cast. No one could have done better. A major tear-jerker. The story is touching. And real. And humbling.
This is probably the best jdrama i have ever watched. Its so touching and heart-warming. I've learn alot from this drama. Great cast.
Sawajiri Erika acting in this drama was perfect. The most touching drama ever. realistic life, struggling and meaning to be live on.
most touching and beautifull "thing" i have ever seen, the first series that ever made me realy cry
and i used to be hard as rock
Really beautiful and touching. It inspired me a lot to keep moving on in life. I love this drama, it is definitely one of my faves.
wow...such a great drama...at first, i though i'm not gonna like it, but in the end of episode 1, i was addicted to it rightaway...
notice: when watching this drama have additional boxes of tissues please. this drama requires absorbent materials of any kind. >.<
this one is great!!!!!! I dropped my tear few times.. but I mostly cried a lot at few last episode.. so touching!!!!!!!!!! TT__TT
one of the most heartfelt drama i've watched...the title fits it perfectly with the drama coz your really going to cry buckets...
What a tearjerker of this drama? I was crying almost the whole drama. Erika portray as a sick teenage girl very well esp the end.

this is the BEST drama i've ever watched, no, the BEST thing i've ever watched. the actors the storyline, everything was awesome.

This is a teer jerker drama..very touching and saddening...Erika Sawajiri portrays Aya very well..Plus she's so cute and pretty~
1 litre of tears is not enough for this drama.
It shows you a reason for living.
Great preformances especially Sawajiri Erika.

'Ichi Ritoru no Namida' is a something that every one should watch. Its very touching actually, with some very good acting in it
the most saddest drama i've ever seen! although i didnt cry one litre of tears... i've cried at least 5 times through the series
Saddest drama that i've ever watch. Of course, if a drama can get you so emotional, it has got to be the greatest out there. =)
cried in 8 of the episodes... the only reason i didnt cry in the others was because i watched 2 in a row and was all cried out
EVERYONE TOLD ME ABOUT THIS DRAMA AND I FINALLY WATCHED IT AND...I LOVED IT AND IT CHANGED MY OUTLOOK AND THINKING ABOUT LIFE
very touching story, can't believe that it is based on true story. This dorama is very very good, a must watch for everyone.
touching and emotional throughout the drama, and the message is sent to people make this dorama one of the best there is
the only difficult part was wiping my tears off..although it was the zillion-th times watchin
love it..*love ryo too*
the best dorama ever... can't say anything more to that. It touched everyone's heart... crying one littoru no namida.

The BEST show ever!! I cried my eye out! Soo tuching story that makes you want to crie again how hard life can be.
This drama is amazing and the only one that made me cry from ep1 till the end + is based on the real story of Aya.
Maybe the saddest TV Series that I've ever seen, but still it's full of hope ... and by the way, I'm a Ryo-Fan <3
I still don't get why this movie is not positioned at number one, because it is incomparable, far above the rest
It make me feel how important my family is, but I've never realized before.
Crying so badly during watching it.
This was the saddest drama i have ever seen, but it was a great one!! Nishikido kun was sooo hott as Asou kun!!
