Story and background


Based on the slice-of-life manga by Matcha Hazuki, One Week Friends tells the story of Yuki Hase, a high schooler who notices that one of his classmates, Kaori Fujimiya, is always alone. After approaching her, Kaori rejects him saying that she loses every memory of her friends each week. Unwilling to give up, Yuki continues to try and befriend Kaori every week.


Yoshitaka Yamaya skillfully portrays Yuki’s earnestness while Sora Amamiya expresses the deepness of Kaori’s heart with much anticipation. The duo play at the heart stings of the viewers in this anime.
