You can always get a good feel for the direction of an episode by the title. Well, this one may be a bit misleading, as the titles usually pertain to an experience that Fujimiya is having (Friends of Friends dealt with her getting to know Kiryu, New Friends deals with her, well, making a new friend), but this episode deals with Fujimiya’s friends meeting her mom. A make up test brings Usa and Co. to Fujiymiya’s house so that she can help them study (well, sans-Kiryu… he just kind of gets drug along). This serves as a springboard for an encounter between Usa and Fujimiya’s mom, which of course leads to the reveal of some backstory concerning Fujimiya. While we still don’t know what causes her memory loss, we now have some more information on which to base our theories.
Really, there isn’t much I can think to say here. There’s nothing here to change one’s opinion of One Week Friends if you’ve found it enjoyable thus far. Sit back, watch, and enjoy.
A Christian Perspective:
One Week Friends continues to be clean and enjoyable. While other shows would have probably used the meeting between Usa and Fujimiya’s mom for dirty fantasies on Usa’s part, the worst OWF does is have Fujimiaya’s mom make a comment about how people will think she’s with a younger guy.
