Review: From the Heart / Things you taught me  Reply with quote  

Title: From the Heart / Things you taught me (君が教えてくれたこと)
Number of Episodes: 12
Broadcast Year: 2000



mangauniverse's Rating: 5 out of 5

Quick Synopsis: This is about a young high intelligent autistic woman, Mayuko Amemiya (starring Tomosaka Rie), and a former doctor Shinichi Sayama (starring Kamikaya Takaya) who's now teaching at a cram school. Being an autistic with high intelligence means that Mayuko's intelligence is the same as anybody else'. However, she's unable to understand, express or percieve human emotions and thus having a hard time adapting in a society where ppl have little knowledge of autistic. Shinichi Sayama on the other hand is still traumatized by the death of his girlfriend, who died in front of him due to a car accident. This has in fact made him unable to drop tears anymore. Things start to change though after the fateful encounter between the two of them... will Shinichi be able to help Mayuko understand human feelings and will she be able to teach him how to cry again?

mangauniverse's Review: This is a REALLY touching drama! Although it's a bit old there's a natural and genuine feeling to it... Rie did a fantastic job acting the autistic Mayuko and there was a good chemistry between the main characters. I totally love it! ^_____^ Some thinks it has a poetic feeling to it and there's some truth in that. Although the sideplot about Mayuko's little brother is a rather predictable ^^;;; I really recommend this to everyone Smile You can download the batch torrent on d-addicts, however the quality of the eps aren't very good *unfortunately* But it's really the story that counts XD *definitely makes up for the lq-ness* I just hope someone will release a HQ release of it sometime in the future ;P *one can always hope*

LOL! Yeah, I kept trying to figure out negative stuff about that drama but couldn't find any... I'll rewatch it sometime in the near future and maybe alter the rating to 4.9 but it certainly is around there ^^

When you do get around to share your thoughts on it ;P
