Sixteen-year-old Yuuki Hase finally finds the courage to speak to his crush and ask her if she wants to become friends. The object of his affection, Kaori Fujimiya, is a quiet and reserved girl who cuts herself off from everyone and does not spare him the same blunt rejection she gives everybody else. Some time after, Yuuki finds her eating lunch on the roof where she secludes herself during break. He decides to start meeting with Kaori every day in the hopes of beginning to understand her better. The more time they spend together, the more she begins to open up to him. However, nearing the end of the week, she starts to push him away once more. It is then revealed to him the reason for Kaori's cold front: at the end of the week, her memories of those close to her, excluding her family, are forgotten, as they are reset every Monday. The result of an accident in middle school, the once popular and kind Kaori is now unable to make friends in fear of hurting the people dear to her. Determined to become more than just one week friends, Yuuki asks her the exact same question each Monday: "Would you like to be friends?" Because he knows that deep down, Kaori wishes for that more than anything.

Absolutely warm and fuzzy anime about two teenagers simply becoming the best of friends despite the gap created by a serious memory crux.


Wanted more of them tho. Best tears i’ve ever dropped 10/10 would cry again


Nice and Sweet


A cute little slice of life/Iyashikei which didn’t err on the side of melodrama but tried a bit too hard to be sad. I liked it though.

I loved this one, a great story about love and friendship.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
