1 Litre of Tears

1 Litre of Tears (1リットルの涙, Ichi Rittoru no Namida) ,

True story of a Japanese girl named Kito Aya, who suffered from spinocerebellar ataxia. She kept writing in her diary to remember her experiences until she could no longer hold a pen. Aya simply wished to live until the end of her life, and the purpose of writing in the diary was to remind herself to not give up. She shed tears many times, at the same time encompassed by the rich love and support from her family, friends, and boyfriend. Her diary “1 Litre of Tears” was published after her death, because of its inspiring and courageous message of, “Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing.” So far, over 18,000,000 copies of her diary have been sold.

* A very touching story/ Japan drama that will shed you 1 litre of tears.:D
Here's a fanart for Kito Aiya....

I remember watching the drama.
I cried my eyes out during each episode, I cried the most during the last episode.
To be honest, she is one of the most beautiful people in the world.
Your drawing of Aya is beautiful, it matches her story well. ;D

i really loved the show it was amazing!

not to burst your bubble, but in real life, she did not have a boyfriend, he didn't exist, they just wanted to make the show interesting. But pretty much everything else is true!!!

Oh gawd this is my ultimate fave piece on deviantART! Splendid coloring!

Your art fits so well with the story... I like the colors and the flowers.

I think that Aya's desire reach everyone who knows about her history.
