Koizora: Setsunai Koi Monogatari (恋空―切ナイ恋物語, Koizora: Setsunai Koi Monogatari, lit. "Love Sky: A Sad Love Story"), or Koizora (恋空) for short, is a 2005 best-selling Japanese coming of age and romance novel written by Mika. Originally posted on the cell phone website "Mahou no iRando", where chapters would be released exclusively for mobile reading, Koizora received a hard print publication from Starts Publications in October 2006, with the story being separated into two volumes. Koizora is claimed to be a biographical account of Mika, or at least, based on first-hand accounts. It boomed in popularity and became a mass cultural phenomenon, spawning a theatrical film, a television drama adaptation, and a manga adaptation.

Mika Tahara has just started high school and yearns to fall in love. However, to her dismay, a gal-like boy in her grade, Nozomu, acquires her cell phone number and begins to make frequent calls. When summer vacation starts, one day, Nozomu drunkenly phones her, but Hiro confiscates the phone and converses with her instead. Although Mika does not know who Hiro is, she feels at ease at the sound of his voice and the two befriend each other.
Mika and Hiro agree to meet each other when school starts, and to Mika's shock, Hiro turns out to be the delinquent boy she is afraid of. However, as she understands how gentle he is, they began to fall in love with each other and face a multitude of challenges threatening their relationship, such as Hiro's ex-girlfriend Saki hiring a group of men to rape Mika and continuing to harass her over the phone.
An unplanned pregnancy occurs when Mika and Hiro consummate in the school library, and although they are determined to start a family together, a miscarriage brings tragedy to them both.
Shortly afterwards, Hiro discovers that his health is deteriorating and makes the painful decision to break up with Mika to keep his terminal illness from causing her pain, but secretly continues to follow her whereabouts through his high school friend, Nozumu. Mika eventually forgets Hiro with the help of Yū, her new boyfriend. Through a chance meeting, Hiro's condition is revealed to Mika and she makes a difficult decision to leave Yū to go to his bedside. Having Mika back, Hiro is determined to fight his disease and begins to improve.
But during a routine checkup, Hiro's condition makes a turn for the worst and he exchanges goodbyes with Mika and his family for the last time. At first, Mika is distraught at his death and even contemplates suicide, but realizes that Hiro would have wanted her to live on.
I highly recommend this movie to watch. You need tissue as much as you can find in your house. You can watch Click Here for the movie. Or you can read the manga 'Here'.
Also not forgot to mention i'm falling in love with Haruma Miura in this movie. Since that i'm a fan of him. Next time i will story about his other movie/drama.
