Description

I want to clear this up first. You may want to know why the title of this manga is like a horror manga title. For that, I must take a little extract from the manga/novel:

I started reading this manga without reading the synopsis first knowing that it is well known for a reason, not knowing what to expect. A few chapters later then I remembered seeing people talking about how the anime makes them cry. Of course I didn't expect myself to even be giving in to that.Overall, this manga manages to be insightful without shoving weighty, profound pinnacles of philosophy into your head. It leaves you to draw your own conclusions without seeming patronizing, and maintains a healthy balance of humor and looming grief.

They became friends. Yes. Sometimes it’s confusing to be just friends when you come to like someone with all your heart. But then it’s okay to be friends as long as you are both together enjoying the littlest things in life. the penultimate chapter is super tearjerky, going over sakura's journal from the last months of her life. i can absolutely imagine a poignant anime version!! Well, you see, right when the writing has been going from the “alright” to the “meh” territory and I was contemplating whether to rate this 5 or 6, the finale came around. Ironically, I’d say it was thanks to the novel being so self-aware about how everyone saw the conclusion of terminal illness coming. Thanks to confessing right from the start what is going to happen the story was able to go a bit further than being just a generic final moments of a patient melodrama. A finale that was surprisingly nicely executed with well done emotional pay-off. Now, as much as I would love to write in greater detail about it, I would also like to not rob you of the opportunity to experience it first-hand, so you’ll have to be satisfied with me not spelling everything out. What’s important is that I was suddenly contemplating not between 5 or 6, but between 6 or 7. And I’m possibly getting soft as “good” it is. There, I didn’t completely trash a mostly sentimental piece of fiction, save your booing for later. Apart from that, this story also explores what relationships mean to us and how they define us, and what it truly means to be alive. How people impact us in the same way we impact them. The innate beauty in being able to recognize ourselves in others, as living, breathing human beings.

Alternative Titles

it's a pretty cute story with some bittersweet philosophical themes. sakura believes that they "chose to meet" and everything that happens is based on their decisions. He begins to want to be more like her. More open to relationships of all kinds and he starts to grow as a person because of her. For the sake of you guys not knowing the boy's name I'm going to call him the same way the manga called him. He likes to read novels and prefers to stay alone than having friends as he sees no reason in having any. He is surprised by Sakura's behaviour as it is completely different from what you would expect from someone who suffers from a disease slowly killing her. He increasingly cares for her and becomes more and more attached to her as the story develops. An interesting character as well, as he is the one who learns most in this story.
