It does seem like a very long film, the ending went on longer than expected, but it tied the . but they don't understand the relationship I have with these characters ( hahaha.
Takei Akashi, and the rest of the supporting cast, were brilliantly cast and their connections with each other were convincing. The casting director was successful through and through. From all the dramas I have seen, this one was the most beautiful.
Prefer the J-dorama version of Ima, Ai ni Yukimasu いま会いにゆきます over the film version
Each scene was linked with nature and each element of nature was linked closely to the plot. There were moments when the camera would capture something so beautiful my heart would just stop.
Never has rain appeared so sinfully precious in a drama before.Ima ai ni Yukimasu (ending)
Reviewed by Wynter on 8 October 2. There were two major problems with this show: The show added a few more characters to create some side stories but these side stories really led nowhere.
It was obvious that they were just trying to eat up time half way in so that the show would last a full 11 episodes. The reason the movie was so special for me is the chemistry between the main leads and the drama just doesn't have it.
Narimiya Hiroki is a talented guy but whenever he is in the same shot with Mimura they both seem to fall flat and I ended up finishing the show for the sake of finishing to see if there was any difference between the movie and dramas ending.
A bright spot in the show though is with the two younger actors who play the high school version of the couple. These two did a pretty good job and the flashbacks ended up being my favorite part of the entire series. Overall though this was a waste of a great concept, disappointing.

A gift from a from away star [Rating: Strange as it may sound, Mio made a promise on her deathbed that she would return to Yuji and Takumi when the rainy season comes.
Of course, Takumi is skeptical of his wife's promise, but refuses to put a damper on his son's excitement. It is clear that Takumi, too, hopes that her dying words come true.
On the first anniversary of her death, Takumi and Yuji wander in the woods near their house and end up meeting a woman who is the spitting image of Mio. Strangely, the woman possesses no memory of who she is or how she got there. Rather than question such a providential turn of events, father and son embrace the moment and try to make the most of her return.
Tentatively, their family life resumes, as Mio begins to adjust to her role as wife and mother, re-energizing the family dynamic in a way that brings happiness to all parties involved.
In the meantime, Takumi tries to fill in the blanks for Mio about how they fell in love. Their back-story is told from his perspective, as the film flashes back to their high school days. However, his version of events makes it clear that Takumi never became aware of Mio's true feelings at the time, a fact that will come into play later in the narrative.
Underlying all this happiness is the question of how long this reunion will last. It seems that while she was alive, Mio buried a time capsule, one that holds the key to her startling reappearance.
Learning the truth of the situation, Mio realizes that her days are numbered and takes steps to ensure that Takumi and Yuji are well-taken care of and are able to take care of themselves when she finally departs this earthly plain.
As the rainy season's end approaches, all three must prepare for her eventual, poignant departure. I've recently fallen in love with Mimura.
The first episode begins like a dream. Beautiful grassy landscapes bathed in golden shafts of sunlight, the camera floating languidly as we see and hear the laughters of a happy family of three, a young couple and their son, at the ruins of a building in the middle of a forest. Then, the soothing voice of the mother, Mio, reading from the picture book she had prepared for her son, Yuuji, just before her untimely death.
It is a tale of a mother who went to an alien planet after her death, and then returning to her husband and son during rainy season. Still too young to understand what had happened to his mother yet hearing whispers during the funeral where people blamed his birth for her deathYuuji clings to the story his mother wrote to him, believing that one day, she will return for him just as she has promised.
When it begins raining on a June morning, exactly a year after Mio's death and on Yuuji's birthdayYuuji runs out into the forest to the special place where he used to play with his mother. His father, Takumi, chases after him to get him to go to school. When they arrive at the old ruined building where they used to play, Yuuji's mother, Mio is sitting there by herself, seeking shelter from the rain, completely alive and healthy.
Unfortunately, she has no memory of them or anything that occurred during her life.
I bought the series in Shanghai by accident, thinking that I had gotten myself the movie the pirated DVD used the film poster for its coveronly to find out, to my horror, that I was watching a dorama after seeing the end credits come out prematurely I ignored the fact that the two leads of the dorama, Narimiya Hiroki and Mimura, looked NOTHING like their film counterparts, Shido Nakamura and Yuko Takeuchi, assuming that maybe I've been misinformed about the cast Watching the first episode of 'Ima Ai ni Yukimasu', especially during its opening, I was blown away by the gorgeous cinematography.
