This is the last post which will be made on Meepinganime. It’s kind of sad, isn’t it? From here on out, we’re renaming ourselves to something totally different, and hoping to deliver a whole new experience. Any issues with domains and redirect loops are going to occur within the first few days, but if you get an error, please let one of us know at meepinganime.at.hotmail dot com. It’s been a fun few years, and we’ll all be on the other side!
One Week Friends
I find that whenever I look for a drama, regardless of what shape and form it may be in, it’s littered with melodrama and unrealistic characters and situations. It’s not played out the way normal people play out their lives, and it’s often got something to ruin it. I had heard amazing things about the source material to this show, but when it revealed that it’s got a amnesiac trope as it’s main part, I was pretty concerned. Thankfully, those concerns were for nothing, as this is quite possibly the most realistic portrait of amnesia in anime that i’ve seen, and how people around you adapt and cope with it.
Will you be my Friend?
Is it ever okay to leave things as they are, burying and hiding from any chance of further upset? Everyone in Isshuukan Friends is hiding something, and when the snow falls in the winter, will anything actually get resolved? I mean, if this was a visual novel, all the signs are saying that everything’s on path for a Bad End.
Winter’s my favorite season. The weather becomes colder, and the warmer clothes come out. But there’s often a strange sort of magic in the cold weather, and that gets shown in a strange manner this week, what with it being the semi-final episode and all. One impression is left on me at the end of this, and that’s the saying that a tear is worth one thousand words.
Friend and Friend
It’s really late to introduce a new character, but there’s some details on the black haired guy who transferred in, Kujo Hajime.
Last Day with Friends
It’s almost like that previous episode never happened. Relationships havn’t changed, and the feeling has gone at first glance. Such an odd design choice.
Friends and the Beach
When you’re with fun, exciting people, even catching a bus can be an adventure, let alone a train to the beach. Though at the end of the episode, I was sat with that classic “hnngh” feeling. And the feeling that this show is about break my heart after such a beautiful episode.
Friends of Ah; Friends of Whew.
The gears of romance start turning as summer break starts to fall into place, but with how pure and innocent Hase tends to be, things can actually become quite an issue.
Mothers of Friends
The old trick of getting invited to a girl’s place for some math revision, huh? Hase’s such a player sometimes.
A New Friend
“Don’t talk to me in the classroom”. Who could have guessed such a strange rule can have been broken so easily?
Fighting with Friends
Memory loss isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, as the first major issue comes up in Hase’s and Kaori’s relationship this week.
