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".

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.
