The Rigtheous Three-Episode-Rule Of Doom. Spring 2014 “First” Impressions. Issuukan Friends

50

Oh what a surprise this is.

Instead of giving us a Clannad-esque borderline-tragedy, Isshuukan Friends instead goes on a road that I’ve (almost) never seen walked, and does it masterfully while it’s at it. Yes, objectively speaking, this may be the best show of the season, especially if dives further into the drama.

Presenting a light-hearted drama revolving around friendship, Isshuukan Friends knows how to balance cute with drama and style: The characters are the very personification of innocence, and so this series succesfully makes me feel fuzzy episode after episode. Don’t get me wrong though, episode 3 proved us that it can be down to earth as well, and I’m loving it.

Naturally, I will watch it to completion and check out the manga afterwards, ’cause Isshuukan Friends is just that good, even without romance.

  1. I’m really enjoying this one too. Like you said, it doesn’t have the Clannad-esque seriousness that leaves you hanging each episode, but enough developments to add more spice to the story each week. The color palette used is really pleasant, with the right amounts of fluffy parts and touching moments – this is also one of my favorites so far this season! Any other shows that you’re particularly enjoying up till now? :D

    • I agree with you, but my only complaint would be episode 4 which was terribly dissapointing what with it’s melodrama, it’s just preference though so~
      No Game No Life and Mekaku City Actors are definitely my top picks for the season :D you?

      • Ping Pong and Sidonia no Kishi are on the top of my list at the moment. Mekakucity Actors is revving up with the last two episodes and I can imagine that it’ll just get better from here on. I’ve recently been listening to Kagerou Project and I’m enjoying the music too! ^_^
