5.0 out of 5 stars Memories are made of this., 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Ef - A Tale Of Memories" is (if you are that way inclined) an inspirational story. As with many animé there are numerous plot quirks that seem to defy belief (the twin towns being just the first of these) but all of it is with a purpose. From Chihiro's amnesia, the mystery of Yuuko (not fully addressed in this series, but dealt with in the sequel: "Ef - A Tale Of Melodies") right through to the twin towns themselves with their reversed seasons, everything happens for a reason. And as the lives of the cast grow more complex and difficult, as their fears and doubts surface and are realised, as they confront each other and themselves, you find that you care - and care deeply - to the point where the show delivers memories that YOU won't want to forget. And really, that's the point, no?

This show has wisdom in it, humour, some lovely scripting that is often given a different viewpoint by the Japanese and American voice casts (going by the subtitles anyway - I don't speak Japanese), beautiful visual images (clear, sharp and full of life and detail at HD resolution) and a strongly memorable musical score (by Tenmon and Elisa) but more than any of that it has a warm heart that will bring you back to watch it again and again. You were never this age, but after watching and experiencing "Ef - A Tale of Memories" you will wish you were.

Bear in mind that this is a Region 1 BD so you MUST have a multi-region or R1 player or you will need to use a software package that can decode and copy the disc before you can watch it.
