Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Posted on: May 24, 2008

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora or also known as Hantsuki is a short 6 episode love story between two hospitalized seventeen year olds.

Yūichi Ezaki is a high school student who is being treated for hepatitis A while Rika Akiba is suffering from a weak heart valve that has left her hospitalized throughout most of her life. they both met with the help of Akiko Tanizaki, a tough but caring nurse working at the hospital. Rika has a close relationship with her doctor Gorō Natsume, who has been looking out for her for more than 6 years.

Hantsuki is a sweet and at times, sad show. Rika starts off being very selfish and bossy towards Yūichi mainly due to her not having any other friends. she spends most of her time reading books instead.

Yūichi starts to develop feelings for Rika as they spend more time together. then of course the doctor comes along and tries to sabotage their relationship (due to a bit of jealously). the sad part of the show is that we will come to realize that Rika does not have long to live.

so it’s like boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, girl warms up to boy, boy finds out that girl does not have long to live. will boy decide to leave girl or continue to pursue her? aww heck, we know what he is going to do. but still, it’s a sad sad love story.

Hantsuki gave me a warm fuzzy feeling watching Yūichi and Rika’s budding relationship as Rika slowly warms up to Yūichi. it’s short, it’s sweet and it’s very heartwarming.

very touching story. i kind of cried a bit at the end :”’) i guess it ended OK. unless they had plans on the story of making her live there isn’t much they could have added. at least they got married :) (at the end of the tv show after the credits you can see them getting married)

still.. its very sad.

thanks for the recommendation.

yes, Of execution, what a critical site and communicative post.

u can regard everything here as fiction, or fanfiction (me being my own fan haha), or messed up ramblings from the deranged mind of a guy in his midlife crisis. whatever. comment as u see fit. the brainless ones go to /purgatory, not that i'm saying ur a zombie. then again seeing as i'm not getting much sleep lately, i probably am one. that said, u'll realise that u can't take legal action against a zombie. cause we've gots diplomatic immuniteh. rawr.
