All W: Wish released episodes
Junna and Senna
Junna and Senna are twin siblings that live alone. Shortly after the exams, there will be a Cherry Blossom Summer Festival at school, and Senna is excited to create memories with a relunctant Junna. Junna's homeroom teacher calls the twins over to the office to propose that they could live at the school because she is concerned about their situation. Junna doesn't recall the memories of the accident in which his parents died, but he refuses saying that he is encouraged to work hard to support his living because of Senna's existence.
Help, Helpers Club
Akino, the class representative of Junna's class, has decided that the theme of their activity for the Cherry Blossom Summer Festival is a haunted house. While the class groans, a student named Sana appears at Junna's class and asks him to come with her to the Helpers Club (formerly the Literature Club). It turns out that the president of the club is the most popular girl at the school, Tsubasa. Tsubasa explains the purpose of the club was to help others, and with the preparations for the Cherry Blossom Summer Festival, she believes that this is a good opportunity to get more members. She requests for Junna's help, knowing him to be very hard-working to support himself and his sister. Flattered, Junna accepts, and is given the job to collect news on the all activities in the festival. Meanwhile, Senna, who had spotted Sana dragging Junna, had eavesdropped on the conversation and is slightly bothered by it.
Junna runs into Tomo, an anti-social classmate of his who refuses to participate in the class activity. In response to this, Junna encourages her to assist and manages to help land her in a suitable role for the haunted house. Junna goes to report the Cooking Club's activity, where Tomokazu, Tomo's identical twin brother, embraces him. When Junna pushes away Tomokazu, Tomokazu's apron is accidentally soaked with soy sauce. Both Tomokazu and Senna are disappointed by this because they have to make more aprons for the rest of the club members. At the sound of trouble, Sana quickly arrives to help, but she ends up causing a fire, resulting in the arrival of the police. The officer, Yuuko, scolds the group, but also tells Junna that she had brought along his childhood friend. Junna and Senna are led outside to meet this new girl, and in turn, she addresses Junna as her older brother and hugs him. Although Junna does not remember who she is, he remembers her name, and this worries Senna.
Senna is disquieted at how much time Junna and Haruhi are spending together. Akino asks Senna for assistance because she cannot locate Junna to ask for his. She explains that the haunted house is short on decorations, and since Junna and Senna's parents are archaeologists, they might have materials that they could use. Senna leads Akino and Tomokazu to the mansion-like home she and Junna live in, and reluctantly gives Akino permission to borrow artifacts. When Tomokazu brings up the topic of club members staying at school overnight to finish constructing their club activities, Senna decides to go, despite the Cooking Club being ready. Meanwhile, Haruhi asks Junna to be her date for the Cherry Blossom Summer Festival, but Junna declines because he doesn't remember too much about her.
Night Before the Cherry Blossom Summer Festival...
While making the last touches to the haunted house at night, Akino suddenly injures her leg and Junna carries her away. Haruhi becomes jealous and tries to hurt herself so Junna will carry her as well. Senna is angry that Haruhi is causing so much trouble and confronts her, and before their argument escalates, Yuuko arrives and orders Haruhi to go home. Relieved, Junna takes a break at the school roof from his work, where he sees Tomo. As the two stargaze, Tomo sagely tells Junna not to be afraid because she will always watch over him. Senna comes to the school roof, causing Junna to end his break, and she asks him if they'll be together as siblings. Junna agrees, and the two help finish the haunted house.
Memories in the Darkness
Senna wakes Junna up for the Cherry Blossom Summer Festival. Just as Junna promised, the two spend the entire festival together. When Haruhi shows up, she cannot locate Junna, and Junna does not hear her calling for him. When night falls, Senna tells Junna that she's happy he kept their promise, but an image of Haruhi flashes through his mind. Junna is suddenly concerned about Haruhi and his past, but Senna tries to reassure him that he doesn't need to remember everything. Just as the fireworks begin, Junna's memory suddenly flashes before his eyes, causing him to pass out.
Summer! Ocean! Swimsuits!!
Tsubasa invites everyone to her beach resort for summer vacation. She decides to form a beach volleyball competition, and Haruhi suggests that the winner shall have one request. Haruhi and Senna end up being stuck together as a team for the competition, but easily win, fueled by the determination to have Junna. Haruhi immediately requests that Junna should have a date with her, and hurriedly drags him away. During their date, Junna suddenly gets a flash of his mysterious dreams and ends up fainting. When Junna wakes up, Senna uses her wish from the volleyball game to request that Junna shouldn not force himself. Inwardly, Junna is still thinking about his lost memories, but is troubled with that if he does get them back, things will change.
Photo Album of Memories
Sana brings photos from their beach vacation to Junna and Senna's house. Senna excitedly wants to put them in photo albums immediately, and hearing this, Junna believes that if he sees the old photo albums, he may be able to recover his memory. However, Senna claims to have thrown them out by accident, but decides that they should buy one to create memories. At the bookstore, Junna notices Tomo walking by and follows her, but she mysteriously vanishes. While walking home with Senna, Junna still wonders where Tomo went. They encounter a man named Koutarou Ryuuoku, who had participated in a study with the twins' father. He tells them about a dial that their father found at an excavation site, and because the twins were present at the time, he asks them if they remembered anything from it. While Junna tries to remember, Senna tearfully exclaims that she doesn't know anything and retreats to her room.
Senna refuses to come out of her room, leaving Junna troubled as he realizes he does not know too much about her. Junna finds the dial Koutarou was talking about in his room, along with old photo albums. The photo albums have no photos of Senna, but have pictures of Haruhi instead. Shocked, Junna takes a walk outside, confused as to why this is so. He happens to meet Haruhi by chance, and the two head out to a café. Junna feels that Haruhi understands why Senna was not in the photo albums and asks her why. Haruhi sadly responds that Senna was not supposed to exist at all. Tomo appears behind Junna explains that like Junna, Senna doesn't have a past, but she does not have a future as well. As Senna emerges from her room, she notices the photo albums and realizes that Junna is coming close to knowing the truth.
Haruhi apologetically tells Junna that she cannot explain everything to him and he must be the one to choose his future, but she'll accept whatever he decides. No later, the town is suddenly engulfed in a fog, and because of this, everyone is instructed to stay home. Junna sees Tomo again and follows her down an alley, remembering that she told him that she'll watch over him. On his way, he does not see Senna, who has come to talk to Junna with the dial. Junna ends up on the school roof, and Tomo reveals herself as the Keeper of Time. She says that only Junna can decide what he want, and takes him back to the time of his childhood, on the day he was separated from his parents and Haruhi.
**Review request from MaxLemon**To preface this, I could only stomach the 1st episode so my review covers that and some speculation. So W:Wish or Double Wish as it is known tells the "story" of a Jun Fukuyama and his "Twin 'younger' Sister" Ai Shimizu. Now if you are thinking, "Why if they are siblings (twins at that) do they have different last names?" . My answer, Plot device. The show starts off with some blurry tripped out images with a girl (Ai Shimizu) calling for her "Oni-chan" over and over. This doesn't get explained well but we can guess this references to something in the final two episodes where the BIG PLOT TWIST happens. However that is merely speculation derived from separate shows of the same genre. The show then cuts straight to the typical Japanese anime classroom where nobody listens to the teacher, and she gets mad when they leave as she as talking. Our main character, who I will be referring to as MC because his name doesn't matter. So MC gets called out of class by his "sister" who decided to call to him secretly from the hallway instead of getting him like a normal human being. They then begin talking about the culture festival, because whats more important in life than those. The sister begins doing the "I am in love with my brother cause reasons" act and of course MC is completely oblivious to it (eh? nadatte?). This is only broken up by the guy who the story had decided was going to be homosexual for the MC. He does this by performing the pull the MC arm into the chest trick, except he uses his crotch (and no I'm not exaggerating).They then get called into the teachers office. MC immediately begins to apologize for having "only" failed 3 or 4 exams. His sister also chimes in saying that "If oni-chan needs to take supplementary lessons I will make him". The teacher informs MC that while he is stupid that the reason is not his grades but his living conditions at home. The writers took the liberty at this time to show us what looks like the flashback car explosion scene in "Austin Powers: Goldmember". The MC as we can guess is the sole survivor of a "horrible" car accident. Sensei-nobodylistenstomebecauseitsfunny, precedes to tell them they need to live in the dorms. Well, MC is not having any of that. He firmly g̶r̶a̶s̶p̶s̶ ̶i̶t̶ tells Sensei that he only needs his sister because "she saved him from amnesia"? I wasn't clear with it. After words it cuts to the end scene where the two siblings are sitting on the swings talking about what just happened. It is at this point MC has paradigm shifted from baka-onii-san to TsunOnii-san. He proceeds to call off his sisters shenanigans and call her a baka two more times after she started getting c̶r̶i̶n̶g̶e̶y̶ mushy about what he said in the teachers office. They then roll the ED and credits.
