xxx Haruto Asou xxx : So, Haruto is in love with her, and she loves him, but they can't go out or get married because of her disease. In the 2nd to last episode of the drama, she tells him to leave her alone because she doesn't want either of them to be in any more pain, but 5 years before she dies he comes back anyway and stays at her bedside the whole time. There are a few times he cries and when he does it is even more sad because it's sad to see a hot guy cry, especially him. He is played by Ryo Nishikido who is very hot!!!! After the making of the drama Ryo and Erika went out for a while but then she dumped him because he wasn't her type...how couldn't he be her type?! He's so hot...anyways... His parents wanted him to be a doctor, but he didn't want to, partly because of his brother. His brother was going to be a doctor but he died in an accident. Haruto actually did become a doctor, perhaps for Aya, I don't know, aww, but it's cute anyway.
xxx Shioka Ikieuchi xxx : Shioka was Aya's mum and she is soo nice. She was always supporting Aya and with her 24/7, and when Aya cried, Shioka cried with her for support, or she stayed strong and brought Aya through. In the drama she is played by Hiroko Yakushimaru, a good choice.
xxx Mizuo Ikeuchi xxx : Mizuo was Aya's dad, and he was so shocked and scared and angry when he found out about Aya's disease. He ran a tofu shop, and she was proud of him. He was an outgoing man and never failed to express his feelings. When he realized something was wrong his eyes would widen his voice would rise and invariably so would he! He's funny, but slightly intimidating. Haruto was scared of him! In the drama he was played by Takanori Jinnai.
xxx Ako Ikeuchi xxx: Ako was Aya's younger sister, the second eldest. She was alot unlike Aya. She didn't mind the school she was at and had no want of going to a private school. Aya did. Before she learnt about the disease, Ako was often annoyed at Aya and jealous of her. When she found out, she was a new person. She cared so much more for Aya, supported her and stood up for her. When Aya chose to stay at the hospital, Ako decided to fufill Aya's dream of graduating from Higashi High for her. Higashi is a private school with a hard entrance exam. Well, Ako made it and graduated from it. She was determined. Aya's illness gave Ako strength as well as herself. In the drama Ako is played by Riko Namuri.
xxx Hiroki Ikeuchi xxx: Hiroki, or Hiro, was Aya's little brother. He played soccer, and Aya had promised to come to one of his games. Hiro told all his friends that his sister was coming. Aya had drawn a goal on a wall to help him practice his shooting. Hiro told his friends that Aya helped him learn to shoot well, but they didn't believe him because when they saw her she wasn't walking well. Then his friends started making fun of her, and when Ako found out she stood up for Aya and told of Hiro for not doing anything, but from then on Hiro was so proud of his sisters and always stood up for Aya. <3 so cute. He is played by Yuma Sanada in the drama. He is really cute!!!
