■The last 10 years(Japanese Subtitles)
Director: FUJII Michihito
Matsuri Takabayashi (KOMATSU Nana) is 20 years old. She has decided never fall in love again. She does not want to get attached to life as a very rare, incurable disease that affects one in a million people afflicts her.
Just as she decided this, she is reunited with her former classmate Kazuto Manabe (SAKAGUCHI Kentaro) at a class reunion. When Kazuto tells her he feels living is useless, Matsuri blows up at him because his attitude to life seems incredibly selfish to her. But after this exchange, they start getting closer and closer.
A love story with a definite end in sight. If a relationship were to start, it would be incredibly painful and heart wrenching for both of them. But even then, Matsuri could not repress her feelings. She knows she should not see him again, and yet she finds herself hiding her illness, spending time and having fun with Kazuto just like any other couple in their twenties.
As happy memories multiply, their time left together gets shorter and shorter. What will become of the two of them…?

Unfortunately, a seemingly insurmountable obstacle stands in his way; he’s not good at drawing wolves. One day, while working at a construction site, he meets a mysterious girl, Midori. She enters the site to look for her dog but falls and injures herself. Sōsuke takes her home. However, when they arrive at the photo studio run by her family, he notices something strange about the Tokyo scenery. It no longer looks familiar… The story that unfolds is both tragic and fantastical, intertwining both the past and present.
