New Live-Action One Week Friends Film Stills Revealed

Romance manga-turned-anime One Week Friends is getting a live-action film adaptation, and some brand-new stills have just been revealed.

One Week Friends’ two main characters, amnesiac Kaori Fujiyama and her one-week friender Yuki Hase are played by Haruna Kawaguchi and Kento Yamazaki, respectively.

Kawaguchi previously appeared in manga adaptations Say “I Love You” and Ouran High School Host Club, while Yamazaki is probably best known for his turn as L in last year’s Death Note series. He’s also scheduled to play Josuke in the upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure film.

The film is directed by Shosuke Murakami (Densha Otoko).

One Week Friends adapts the manga by Matcha Hazuki about a high school girl who loses all memory of her friendships after one week and a boy who’s determined to be her friend regardless. It was previously adapted into a 12-episode anime series in 2014.
