    From Osamu Tezuka, godfather of manga, and Hideo Nakata, godfather of J-horror, comes this quirky romance between the boy and the comatose girl with whom he falls in love. Born asleep after a terrible crash, Yumi (Risa Hoto) grows up on the way of the world around her. Yuichi (Yuki Kohara) crows are convinced that one day his case will awaken her like the Princess of legend. When she finally does the wake, they find that the real world is no fairy tale. Can they face the harshness of reality together? Or will it be too much for them to bear? Based on the manga Garasu no Noh or The Glass Brain, originally published in Shonen Sunday magazine, and adapted by type Chiaki Konaka, writer of Hellsing, RahXephon, Bubblegum Crisis 2040, and Eureka Seven.
