Plot Summary: The anime revolves around two protagonists, Hirono Hiro and Asou Renji. On Christmas Eve, Hirono Hiro meets a girl named Miyamura Miyako who was chasing a purse snatcher. Hiro later finds out that Miyako also goes to the same school as he does and they start hanging out together. This made Hiro's childhood friend, Shindou Kei, feel left out. Kei then tries to compete with Miyako for Hiro's affection and a love triangle ensues. The anime also tells the story of Asou Renji. Renji meets a girl named Shindou Chihiro at an abandoned train station. He soon learns that Chihiro suffers from a type of amnesia where her memory span only lasts for 13 hours. He also discovers Chihiro's dream of writing a novel, but she has never been able to fulfill that dream due to her condition. Renji then decides to help her fulfill that dream.
Highly recommend buying this sereis!!!
The english dub shook my thoughts of english dubs. Great cast with a very accurate script.
Greg as Hiro, and Clint as Renji were very very good, it brought up there popularity as both of my favorite actors. People need to open up to understand that these actors expressed there character just like there japanese counterparts. Though I hate other stuff that Serephim dubbed just like everyone else(EX: H.O.T.D had good voices but had an inaccurate script).
Chris, David, and Illich were wonderful as usual. I suspected that Luci would voice Miyako, along with Hillary Hagg voicing Mizuki. Brittney had a very unique voice in this compared to other works which changed my opinion about her in a positive way, Monica Rial brought very good voicing as Chihiro. And I was surprised that Tiffany Grant did a wonderful dub as Renji's mom.
But what is so strange about this dub, is because that the actors used a lot of japanese honorifics in this dub. I don't know if this drops it or gives it a plus for cultural reference.Read more ›
If you are looking for a show that can provide closure while also keeping you on your toes until the very end, this is one of those stories. As a fan of anime, I feel my largest complaint for almost anything on the market today is how open ended stories are. I understand the mentality for doing this, its to create an environment for the viewer to take what they want from a story in order to please the majority. However, I think that this method of writing has less to do with viewer empowerment and is geared more for alleviating an authors inability to commit. Why should people be expected to draw their own conclusions? It is incredibly presumptuous to assume we know more about the characters than the person who envisioned them.
Memories tells a story focusing primarily on five different characters and how they deal with the romance that they don't necessarily understand. The story jumps from one setting to the next and it can be annoying at times if you've found yourself committing to one set of characters instead of investing interest in both. I personally found myself annoyed when I was being directed away from one group to another.Read more ›
