Koizora / 恋空

I swear this is the saddest movie ever!The love story is so sad!!

Found this movie on Youtube.I heard it was pretty sad so I went for it and oh my god...It was so good.
During her freshman year in high school, Mika Tahara loses her cellular phone, but later finds it in the school library with the help of an unknown caller. Throughout the summer, Mika and the mysterious caller continue to communicate, and agree to meet each other once school starts again. The caller turns out to be Hiro a delinquent-like boy Mika is initially afraid of, who shows proof of his identity as the caller with a photo of the sky on his cellular phone.

From her friends and through her first sexual encounter with Hiro, Mika learns that he had a girlfriend named Saki. Although Hiro reassures her that he broke up with her, Saki, who still is in love with Hiro, holds a vendetta against Mika and hires a group of men to rape her. The horrific encounter ends with Hiro and his older sister Minako punishing both the men and Saki, but not long after, someone writes a provocative message on all of the school chalkboards with Mika's name and phone number. Hiro continues to protect Mika from all of the bullying advances, but she assures him that she's not frightened anymore from being with him.

Mika later becomes pregnant after she and Hiro consummate in the school library. Hiro is thrilled by the news and both of them gain Hiro's parents' permission to raise the child together, although Mika's parents disapprove of the action. Despite this, Mika is determined to have the baby until the birth becomes a miscarriage due to the physical trauma received when Saki pushed her down a flight of stairs. Despaired, Mika and Hiro build a grave for their baby and promise each other to come visit the memorial on the day of the baby's death yearly.

Shortly after their second year in high school begins, Hiro begins to distance himself from Mika and breaks up with her. Although hurt, Mika meets a college student named Yu who becomes sympathetic to her situation. The two date, but on the day of the baby's death, Mika notices Hiro had visited the grave as per their promise. The next year, she continues to move on from Hiro; however, on the day of the baby's death, Mika finds Nozomu at the grave. Nozomu reveals the truth about Hiro's sickly situation, and that he was asked by Hiro himself to watch over Mika.

Mika breaks up with Yū and finds Hiro, diagnosed with cancer, awaiting death at the hospital. Upset that he pretended he didn't love her only to ensure she would have a happy future, she insists that only he can make her happy. Hiro eventually gives into his feelings and gets back together with her. Mika begins to visit the hospital daily, even taking an academic leave, to take care of Hiro, who slowly begins to show signs of recovery. Hiro's resolve to live becomes stronger until he dies during a check-up. Mika is saddened by Hiro's death and tries to commit suicide, but is stopped by a flock of birds flying towards her. She takes this as a sign of Hiro, in the sky, discouraging her from killing herself, and realizes through this and Hiro's journal that he would have wanted her to continue to live. Seven years later, she reflects on how her life had changed upon meeting Hiro, and that she is living happily with him and their baby in mind.
This movie made me cry.Hiro was amazing as a boyfriend...well,until he started keeping himself away from Mika.

Oh boy,I just wanted to kill Saki when she pushed Mika down the stairs while Mika was pregnant.It was already bad enough she hired men to rape her and that she was the cause of Mika's miscarriage.

OMG Hiro and Mika did it in the LIBRARY?!Yep,everybody's fantasies :-P

I liked the scene when Mika tells Hiro that she was pregnant.It's so funny how Hiro runs away and then comes back screaming "HAVE THE BABY!" XD But when Hiro suggested naming the baby "Book" I was like LOL Imagine having to tell your kid you named them "Book" because you got pregnant in the library.

One of the scenes that really broke me down was when Mika finds out she'd lost the baby. I cried a lot when she tells Hiro though.It was really sad when Mika goes to Hiro in the hospital after she found out he was ill.

Believe me,the scene when Hiro is about to die is a real tear making moment.

If you're into sad love story movies then give Koizora a shot...but I suggest having a box of tissue by your side just in case :-P
