Synopsis

Teenage romance is never easy, but it's especially difficult for second-year high school student Hase Yuuki. The girl he's fallen for, Fujimiya Kaori, is beautiful and kind, and was once the most popular girl in school. But now, she spends all her time alone, and the reason why is stranger and more painful than Yuuki could ever have imagined.

Fujimiya Kaori has a secret: due to an accident she suffered in middle school, she loses all her happy memories at the beginning of the week. As a result, Kaori keeps to herself, unwilling to endure the pain starting a friendship will cause both to her and to the other party. But when Yuuki-kun determinedly pushes his way into her life, Kaori finds herself drawn to him in spite of herself. Can kindness and caring overcome tragedy, and can Kaori and Yuuki become more than one week friends?

While there are some people who prefer solitude and independence, most people are social by nature, and they desire friends to laugh and struggle with in both the good times and the bad. Good company is invaluable, and thus it is important to distinguish who your true friends are. Genuine friendship should not rely on a relationship that is give and take, but rather a relationship based on mutual respect, trust in one another, and unconditional support. A good friendship takes time to mature and develop into an unbreakable bond, and oftentimes requires that friendship to undergo trials and tribulations. One Week Friends explores this read more

Friendzone: The Anime

The plot of Isshuukan Friends consists of a young boy (Hase) who is in love with a beautiful yet estranged girl (Fujimiya). The girl suffers from a condition in which parts of her memories are erased on a weekly basis, on each Monday. This makes it so that Hase, in order to befriend her, is required to introduce himself to her constantly just to keep up their friendship. It also makes for one of the most frustrating anime to watch; it contains one of the biggest "love that never was".

Isshuukan Friends is structured in a way that every single episode, more or less, read more

“Please be friends with me” – Hase. (every single week)

A show about making friends that can be said in 5 simple words. You might think that could turn into a century old trope but Isshuukan Friends (One Week Friends) does something different. It revolutionizes that very simple idea of making friends to bring about a show that is so much more. Based off the manga of the same name written by Matcha Hazuki, making friends is more than just reaching out and extending your hand.

Taken for granted, Isshuukan Friends has a very simple premise. It’s about making friends. The title itself is also easy read more

A heart-warming and satisfying story centering around true friendship and the subjectivity of memories and all the meanwhile it doesn't get too stifling in the process of the story: Isshuukan Friends. Such a marvelous story that people should give a watch.

Story: Isshuukan Friends is about a girl named Fuijimiya Kaori who has post traumatic stress disorder, and her memories reset every Monday. One day, she meets a boy named Hase Yuuki who wants to be her friend, and the story starts from there. As Fuijmiya continuously forgets who Hase is, Hase tries to keep their friendship alive, or start their friendship anew, again and again read more
