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

Trauma on a Timetable is an interesting one. That’s if your body can handle the diabetes-inducing atmosphere that it consistently attempts to body slam you with. In hope that these repeated slams you take will aid you in forgetting the shambles that makes up this story. Spoilers ahead, turn back if you’re afraid of risking dark clouds.

This is one of the few series I’ve ever seen that was 12 episodes long – and could have been shorter! Fancy that right? Almost every time I watch series at this length I generally always feel like there could have been more. Just one more episode, or possibly read more

Recommendations

A boy trying to make friends with a girl who is constantly losing her memories.
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.
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.
Same atmosphere and animation style. Both series deals with dramatic circumstances in life.
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.

A girl with a supernatural problem that causes her to lose all of her friends transfers into a new school.
A boy who is a bit of an idiot decides to make friends with her.
The girl feels she is a burden and denies him at first, but eventually warms up to the idea.
More friends join later on.
Both are heart-warming stories with cute art styles and cute relationships between the characters.
On the other hand, these slice-of-life/comedies also add quite a bit of drama and sadness that can move you to tears.
Both are basically about a lonely girl who gains a happy life with friends because of one cheerful boy.
