One Week Friends episode 08
My hopes were obviously way too high. I don’t think I’ll make the same mistake with One Week Friends again. I thought that there was going to be an explosion of progress now that the characters have a break from school, but no…
I thought for sure that things were going to pick up. The gang decided to go to the beach and we all know what that means. The guys get to see the girls in bikinis and the girls get to see the guys in shorts. Always an exciting moment for young, hormonal boys and girls. That’s where I got lost. I have no idea how things got to the point where the characters were still wearing their clothes and dancing in the rain. What the hell? It’s like you started watching a very promising episode where the middle part was cut out. We had a beginning (the journey there) and an ending (fireworks), that’s about it.
It just doesn’t help that Yuuki’s such a coward. Kaori just can’t help it. She doesn’t know a damned thing about love or any of the emotions that lurk around the corner. She just goes with the motion. It’s really all up to Yuuki to take control and man up. Nothing is ever going to happen if that guy just waits for something to happen magically.
I’m hoping that Yuuki might get forced to step up and work at it now that an old acquaintance of Kaori is about to join the big picture. The guy used to be some kind of friend and may (or may not) be (part of) the reason why Kaori has such a hard time making new friends. I’m not getting my hopes up though. I’ll just wait and see what happens.
