Ok, I think that most people have heard of this strange title of the anime movie which is due to come out... I've read the novel and the manga. But I just don't understand what the title actually means. The characters mention it at the start and at the end... I know that it shouldn't be taken literally but can anyone explain me the meaning of the title?

So, this relates to the fact that in Japanese culture, and various other Asian cultures as well, mothers use a phrase along the lines of 'I will eat up your disease X, so that you can get all better...' to their children; the title here refers to the fact that,

Haruki wants Sakura to get all better from the disease she is suffering, which is some sort of pancreas disease

    Never watched it, so don't know for sure, but: isn't what you hid in the spoiler markup pretty much the show's premise? Is it much of a spoiler? – JNat Feb 8 '18 at 9:09
