The main characters are Mei (Iitoyo Marie) and Kota (Sano Hayato), and they were best friends before Kota was tragically killed. Since then, Mei has been struggling to move on, and she moved from her hometown to Tokyo to try and escape her past memories. Since she moved away though, she lost touch with all of their friends, and her life has never been the same. This all changes when Kota comes back to life.
There are only 8 episodes in the series, and each episode is only 35 minutes or so. However, I thought that the storyline in this one was deeper than other dramas I have watched, and it had more meaning and emotional scenes. Although there were some sad parts, I thought the drama was generally uplifting and reflective of how life really is.
Originally, I had no clue what Under the Miracle Cherry Tree was going to be about from the title; however, like most other Japanese dramas, it was worth watching and pleasantly surprising!
