It has been a while since I watched this drama, but it just recently came to my mind when watching Interstellar by Christopher Nolan. A plot this original (at least to me) isn't something I watch everyday so this idea of communication through time stands out to me. Maybe someone else feels the similarity between Interstellar and Long Love Letter? Both are great imo :)

gave it a 4 stars because 3 wasn't enough in my mind but 3+1/2 would be the rating i'd give.
it was unexpected, and good, but... idk, maybe it has "aged". maybe it'd deserved to have a remake (with a bigger budget).
it was nice altho it was actually sad and depressing at some point, even tho it was supposed to be hopeful, and some parts touched me really. but some things and situations were kinda ridiculous and unrealistic (is that an ironic thing to say for a sort of sci-fi drama), and that one character who was absolutely ridiculously ObnOXIOUS ohmahgah D8
i can't say i'm fully satisfied with that ending, i'm not sure i like it, plus it's a bit unclear, and frustrating.
but it was an original and intriguing drama (we don't quite do that kind of drama nowadays uh?) so yeah, it was nice for a change.

It's been a while since I marathoned a drama but I just couldn't stop watching!
This was an absolutely wonderful drama with very good acting, music and story.
How will people react if they're put in an extreme situation?
I would definitely recommend this to anyone, Kubozuka Yousuke is brilliant

It actually was awesome. Best watch in awhile, and especially, probably the only not-romantic drama that got to my heart; slowly, creepily even, but it stays with you while you're watching it and especially after.
It isn't really sci-fi, nor anything else. It just talks about humanity - in the most wonderful way.

Fail Drama. Do not watch it.

You're right, there's a good chance the school will disappear and students will be inside but this time the future is a nice place.

LLL was truly awesome. I haven't marathoned a drama in a while until I started watching LLL last night and just finished it today.
