There’s no shortage of slice-of-life moé anime out there and no shortage of such titles that are slow paced, but One week friends may well be one of the slowest paced series I’ve seen for recent years. It is really a warm, quiet slice of life that nestles itself somewhere between shoujo and dating sim, drawing influence from parts of both genres. There’s almost no semblance of urgency and the story has no qualms about stalling its momentum and moving the focus onto its side characters in the same formulaic style one generally sees from dating-sim anime. I’ll be blunt: there are times when this read more

"One Week Friends" is one of those rare animes that you don't enjoy because of the overly-dramatic moments or complex plot; it's an anime you thoroughly enjoy through it's simple story and loveable characters. It's a work of art that deserves more praise than it's getting right now. Let me tell you why.

The anime evolves around two friends; Hase-kun, a shy teenage boy with very few friends, and Fujimiya-san, a lonely girl who used to have many friends. When Hase-kun one day dares himself to talk to Fujimiya-san, she completely tries to push him away. It isn't until numerous attempts when Hase-kun gets closer to read more

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

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

Recommendations

A boy trying to make friends with a girl who is constantly losing her memories.
Both Usagi and Issuukan have a soft and light feel along with a little melancholy. If you watched one and would like something that also revolves around daily life (simple things), and two people coming together and interacting, and light soft feel with a little sad then I would recommend these as being similar. The differences: In Usagi the main girl and guy are very different ages and in a guardianship relationship, The story mostly takes place at home. In Isshuukan the story mostly takes at school and the girl and guy are peers.
In several ways, I find these two series alike for their tone and atmosphere. They both involve a shy girl who happens to meet with a cheerful guy at school. They become friends through their experiences. And despite their differences, the two get along in unusual ways because of their sharp contrasts. There is decent comedy, drama, and sparkling romance throughout both series. Kimi ni Todoke focuses more on romance as a driving plot while Isshuukan Friends deals with friendship. But nonetheless, they both convey character relationship on realistic levels that are appreciable.
The atmosphere in both are very, very similar. The shows live from their character interactions, how the main characters get closer to each other and create bonds. Also, both have a similar art style, very light and calming. While Isshuukan Friends is a little more dramatic, you'll definitely love one if you enjoyed the other.

Same atmosphere and animation style. Both series deals with dramatic circumstances in life.
School relationships, mystery, and romance are central themes in both. The strange occurrence of memory loss or amnesia is present in both as key plot devices, along with characters whose pasts conceal secrets. The way both male protagonists go to great lengths to help the female characters in respective series with so much effort is very similar. Also the way the main female characters in both are alone and are first approached by the male protagonist and helps them to make friends is very similar.
