This series was all over the place for me. It started off really strong and then became boring to watch but still had parts that I found enjoyable. Hase is the main reason I started finding this less fun to watch. He is such an moron. He was so possessive of Fujimiya when she started getting more friends. Luckily that calmed down after a while but he still stayed an idiot for the rest of the series. The other characters were the ones that made the series good enough to like. Saki was mvp though. I'm a sucker for characters like her and she killed it making every time she was on screen one of if not my favorite part of any given episode. But yeah, the show was okay, nothing amazing but not bad either. Good enough.

Sadly eating that wrapper resulted Hase getting stomach cancer. For years he had to shit in a bag but he lived with that because of Kaori.

But after spending evening listening about Kaori crying how she was coarced to sex by some frat boy....Hase simply just slit his own throat that night.

So yeah. Don't eat crep's and don't get friendzoned.

So like no one gives a shit abt the fact that Hase had a crush on her ? And that he is still a freaking "friend" , even after the whole series !?

I wud rather see them dating.......

A happy ending ? Maybe :/
A satisfying ending ? NOT IN A MILLION YEARS -,-

Disliked the main character, liked the relationship, but wished it developed further... maybe a confession. Stayed for kiryu, shougo, as he is the only cool character that made me laugh throughout the whole series 7/10 meh.

Goddamn it dense protagonist #1872 had the perfect chance to ask Kaori out but he decided to be a headass instead.

awesome ending .. but it would be better if they keep up with the manga and make season 2 or even an ova showing what happened in the manga when kaori remember every thing even the past and every single moment with hase it would be great i hope they do that because the ending in manga is much better and happier than the anime

Damn, what a sweet and heartwarming series this show was overall. To be frankly honest, however, it felt as though the ending was not wholly satisfying but it was a great one nonetheless. It kind of just irks me that Hase and Kaori have feelings for each other but just can't seem to find the right time to express it, even though the last episode provided countless chances for it. On the other hand, more Shougo x Saki would be very much appreciatable but then again there's another inconclusive ending to their progression.
Well, I at least cried, smiled and was frustrated over the course of watching the series and for that I will give this show a solid and well-deserved 8.5/10. Romance is my favorite genre and I'm well aware of the fact that this series is not labeled as a Romance anime, but my biase slightly hinders this show down to 8.5 rather than a solid 9.

Not satisfying ending imo but at least I'm glad that Hase realised how freaking idiot he is

Aaah the mood was really nice in this episode! I guess the weather made it seem like that... This was a really good heartwarming anime, sad that it ended

It's finally ended. Enjoyable series throughout.

That was a great episode. Loved that they made up, and surprised that they could give such a definite and satisfying conclusion with the limited runtime they had. The eating crepes together was really nice since it was what was supposed to be their first outing together, which they couldn't do. But now we're ending the series with them eating those crepes that they tried so very hard to eat several times. It feels like we've run quite a course.

That scene at the shrine took me by surprise. Hase fully realised what an idiot he had been, trying to not make Kaori cry ever again but by doing what he did he did make Kaori cry. Really glad they made up.

Also, hilarious to see the mom coming and saying that if Kaori's father knew they were together there he'd call an ambulance lol. Also if Kaori did not go home, his father was going to call the police. Seems like Kaori's father really loves his daughter but may be a little too overprotective.

Overally, really enjoyed this series. Almost lost interest midway, but it really picked up in the second half. The best words to describe the vibe this series gives is "cute" and "heartwarming", and at times "cheesy", but for some reason I don't think that's a bad thing in this series. I like enjoying the cheesy parts of Isshuukan Friends.

Impressed at the execution. It's not great or a masterpiece of any sort, but it was consistent throughout and nothing felt like filler. It stayed focused on the story and the development of the characters from beginning to end and managed to really wrap the series up in a nice way that isn't cliffhanging or unsatisfying. Really satisfied with this anime. Though the last ending scene wasn't really impactful for Kujo's part because his story isn't resolved and there wasn't that much development considering how late into the series he came in. Also liked how Shougo and Saki were goofing around together, definitely ship them!

It's been 5 years since this aired, so I guess a second season isn't coming anytime soon. Time to pick up the manga seeing how it's finished.

Don't know whether to give this a 7 or an 8 yet. But it was good and enjoyable. Liked it.

Not THE BEST type of ending, but a very good one nonetheless.
Some might argue that MC is "running in circles of friendzone", and seeing the reviews before seeing an anime, i expected it to be just that - an unfulfilling and pretty "pointless" journey that leads nowhere, but boy was i mislead. I don't know how someone who has actually seen the anime to the end, can say that a relationship of the two never makes progress, or further development is impossible! That's bullshit. Slowly, but steadily, the progress IS MADE, and such POV is made more adamant in the bonus last chapter of manga where the two pretty much confess to each other and decide to be together even after graduating.

One thing i was made sure of is how useless and misleading the reviews on MAL can be.
8.5-9/10. Could have been 10/10 if the show didn't have a big number of convenient coincidences and dense moments.

I completed the anime 10 months ago on May 2019, while the anime was completed 7 months before the manga was finished.

... On first impression the voices of Yuuki, Kaori and Shougo aren't what I imagined. Kaori is the first that feels the most natural from what I imagined near the end of the manga, Yuuki decently fits the personality of his manga counterpart but Shougo's voice is too deep.
Saki somewhat has the tone I was imagining but I didn't expect her voice to be that high and cute.

The animation is great in keeping the original character design, while the cinematography and music beautifully captures the moments correctly.

... I don't remember the manga fully but I think the anime may have left out some scenes out. Maybe some dialogue as well but worse of all is the anime's ending is left as a cliff hanger, while the true ending, her weekly amnesia gets cured. Terrible ending that I think was done to not spoil the manga's ending.

... But. I still love it for what it is. Seeing the manga come alive was nice even if the true ending wasn't adapted.
