Onishi Sensei, Chris, you know, I really like your coordinated outfits today. You’re both wearing a white T-shirts and black pants. I can’t believe you came as a match.

Leo is an old friend of mine.
レオは私の古くからの友人なんです。
Leo is an old friend レオは古い友人のひとり

So, tell me the difference between “my friends” and “a friend of mine.”
Okay, if you say, “Leo is my friend.” It really put the emphasis on that relationship, he is my friend. Whereas if you say, “Leo is an old friend of mine.” It’s a bit weaker, it’s just, yeah, Leo is one of my friends.
Onishi sensei, don’t be mean to Chris. He’s my friend. ??? Oh, Chris is a friend of mine.
So you can see it depends on the context. If you want to really stress that relationship, he is my friend. Then you say that.
