Can a coward commit suicide?

Meet Kita Yoshio, a very unlucky man who has chosen his close friend’s death anniversary as his suicide date, which is 11 days away. The number 11 has been quite significant throughout his life: he was born on November 11th; his roll call number at school was #11; and 11 years ago, he and his wife, Mizuho, went through a divorce. Debt-laden and feeling unneeded to the world, he sells off all his belongings and plans for his death date. However, on the 1st day, he meets Yashiro Heita as well as numerous other characters who will cause him to experience the most eventful 11 days of his life. -- Rikayla

This is a music video but it has highlights from the show..............

Okay, I hit the jackpot! This is a freaking top notch #1 drama of all time! I can't describe how I loved this drama. I watched the whole thing in one freakin' day. That is how good this drama was. It was released this year a few months ago so it's brand spankin' new! And yes, it has Ryu-san all over it. And girls......he smiles throughout the show. *sigh* I'm not much for the short haircut but who gives a rat's's MATSUDA Ryu-san! *sigh* His character is like an angel in devil's clothing..per se. Which in general is Ryu-san in a nutshell! *sigh*

This drama is another totally different drama than the Last Friends. There are no love triangles (*sighs* with relief). It's really about who you can trust. About how we determine friendships. But most of all, about how to live and to strive to live after everything we hold dear seems to die or leave us and we feel like life isn't worth living.

Man, oh man. I've had my Ryu-san fix as of late, haven't I? *sigh*

I'll add pictures of the other cute actors from this show. I'm running out of Ryu-san photos to load...........
