If this book doesn't pull at your heartstrings, then you need A LOT of help.
  • There are so many moments, including Hikaru-kun's first time saying "Mommy", his face when he's scared, and just the generally adorable things he does. He tries so hard.
  • The way Sachiko's mother-in-law blames Sachiko for Hikaru's tantrum at the temple before he's diagnosed.
    Sachiko's mother-in-law: They say children grow up as they were raised! It's all your fault!
  • Real life example: Tobe's death.
