The themes explored in ef - Tales of Memories are very interesting and some episodes are beautifully executed, but there's too much forced and exagerated melodrama. At least that's the way I felt, the characters didn't do much for me.

I don't quite understand, will Chihiro forgets about Renji in the future? If so, what will happen? I would love to see their everyday life in the future, maybe about Chihiro forgets everything about her child and husband if they ever get married and has a child.. LOL!
People should give Kuuchuu Buranko a try.

The amnesia girl storyline was fairly interesting and has the distinction of being something that hasn't been driven into the ground. It's just a shame it's needlessly chained to a lump of crappy soap opera. I'd have been much happier with a 6 episode series.

Even if you do not care as much for the first season I would still recomend the second. It's quite a bit darker with less of what you consider to be a 'soap opera.'

I would definitely have given this a 10/10 if it had ended at episode 11. I would also have given this an instant 10/10 if the conclusion was anything other than power of love and believing in miracles overcoming incurable conditions and gave something more interesting, happy or not.

Still, ef's by far the best romance anime I've seen (not that I've see many) and in many achieved many things I thought would be way beyond a high school romance anime. I might still bump it to 10/10 after watching Clannad ~AS~ if it turns out to be overhyped and inferior to ef, therefore reinforcing its position quite a bit. I have high expectations for ~AS~and I heard it's vastly superior to Clannad, but on the other hand I found Clannad mostly mediocre so who knows.

I was disappointed with this happy end, so my score is 7/10. I`ve seen better storylines in romances and dramas. But the best things in this series are the great artwork and amazing backgrounds. They are so stylish, the best I`ve seen in anime! So it will be 8 of 10))

Just finished the series and I have to say it was enjoyable.

Personally I wish the two stories were connected by more than the fact that two of the heroines were sisters, but I'll live. I liked both stories but Renji and Chihiro's story was my favorite. Renji and Chihiro's story was a serious take on the concept from "50 First Dates" and it was very touching. I am looking forward to seeing the sequel whenever it is released.

Fuck, fuck, fuck. >-<

Such a beautiful show. I'm so, so happy for them. <3

Damn it, 10/10 of course. Wonderful show

OK, I finished it a minute ago. It was over dramatized. Too much of anything is bad; they couldn't optimize the level of sadness. They tried to make a sad and emotional story, but they failed.

The story with the one-eyed girl did make more sense. But it got ruined by the emotional fittings of her. It was stupid for her to attempt to start a relationship without accepting her disease as is. At the end, she both tortured herself and the people around her. And that made me quite frustrated. A short memoried person must have very big and more important problems in his/her life, rather than love. When she woke up in the morning, she should be trying to remember her daily routines. I don't believe that a person can keep only the latest 13 hours of events in her memory would have opportunity to fall in love. The life must have been too difficult for her, so that she couldn't have any change of flirting and experiencing so emotional events.

Oh, the other story... One day, he is good with one of the girls (yet she calls her onii-chan (brother); i know that they are not blood-related), and the next day he sleeps with the other girl (and yet they are both high school kids). IDIOT, you decided to f*ck with her, at least lock the door and don't fall a sleep both naked, since the other girl is gonna come into your room early in the morning as she does every day!!
What happened at the end? The two timer jerk said both girls that he loved them. Now they both think that he chose them.
What are the parents of these school kids doing?????? A girl f*ucking with a boy by spending the night at his place (and yes, the door of his room is unlocked), and neither the boy's parents nor the girls parent know about this!
Hey man, it is 03:00 am and your daughter still is not at home. Don't you wonder where she is? OK, I will tell you, she is f*ucking with a boy who is not even her boyfriend.

In the first place, why are there two parallel stories? The stories didn't tie up at the end, unlike in Kita he Diamond Dust. I believe that, since either of the stories is weak, they wanted to make stronger combination by combining two of them together. I just watched this one, because of its high score in ANN. My taste in anime usually match with the taste of others; but it didn't happen that way this time. I don't understand why so much people like this show. It will be a mystery of like forever for me...

My overall score for this show is...
Starting from the middle point between 0 and 10; 5.
+1 for good graphics.
+1 for being better than an average anime.
-1 for all logical errors.
-1 for the too much sadness which spoils everything.
-1 for not having a decent ending, not existing a solution point to the events.
My score is 4/10.

It's said in previous episode that Miyako lives alone, not sure what happened to her parents though, but you can clearly see they aren't there anymore. She even said she had to take care for herself, parents didn't speak to her, talks to herself in her house; with nobody there.
As for Hiro, he lives alone. I can't really remember the backstory of all that, but there you go.

Why involve parents into that? They were both searching for something they where missing, as for Miyako that means her loss of her parents and needing love.

100/10!!!! (that extra 0 is there on purpose)

this ending was just so perfect and well done

chihiro could never forget renji, that just brought me to tears
i'm so damn happy that EVERYTHING turned out so well for EVERYONE

miyako and hiro look like they have their future set for them, which is very nice

hell, even kei isnt as bad anymore. seeing how well she turned out despite hiro choosing miyako over her just earned her my forgiveness and acceptance

and then even yuu finally finding yuuko was a nice finishing touch at the end

ill say it again, this series was just absolutely PERFECT

Honestly this is the only anime that has pulled me in to this degree. The writer of this series is amazing. Not only did I feel the struggles that the characters felt, but every emotion that went along with it.

I don't think I've ever felt this attached to a show in my entire life. It made quite a deep impact, and I love it because of that. I honestly believe this was flawless. Now I feel like all my 10 rated anime should be bumped down because this truly belongs in a league of its own.

Very good final episode, I like that she broke free and actually managed to retain her memories of Renji.

I'd hate to see what you would rate an average anime.
