I have been waiting for this set since 2008, this is an amazing series. It's short but they cram a lot of content into each episode. The japanese voice actors are awesome but i'm excitied to hear it dubbed in english.

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!!!

I watched this anime a long time ago and it's one of the great ones out there! Like Clannad, it's based on an original visual novel game, "Ef-A Fairytale of the two." It's romantic and psychological. The only thing I don't really like is the sort of "darkness" present in this anime. But I guess that's why the show is so great. The ending is good too, but I won't spoil it. I'm mostly looking forward to hearing the new English dub with many actors I've seen in previous animes released by Sentai. Nagisa Furukawa from Clannad and Haruko Kamio from Air will voice Miyako. Ryou Fujibayashi from Clannad, Ayu from Kanon and Yuri from Angel Beats doing Kei's. Greg Ayres who voices Sunohara from Clannad doing Hiro's. Mizuzu from Air will do Chihiro's voice, Fuko Ibuki from Clannad will do Mizuki's voice, and Yoshino Yusuke from Clannad playing Kazuya's voice (correct me if I got his name wrong). I'm so excited that I know how the characters will sound like before the anime, but too bad we have to wait an entire month until it's released. The opening song (euphoric field sung by ELISA) and second ending song are catchy too. If you buy this anime and it impresses you, don't forget to pick up the sequal season, ef-a tale of melodies which in my opinion, is even darker and kinda more disturbing than this season.

As you may know from hearing about this series, it is bittersweet. The plot flows great so that there is no boring times(except maybe one scene but I think it emphasized emotion)since this is a 12 episode series. Each of the main characters get some screen time and to show there character. The animation is very unique, its not very moving as in active motions but was very good. I felt an emotional/lifestyle connection to the 3 main characters. Some scenes in the story reminded me of some american drama stuff, but they were ten times better which increased my liking to this series.

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.

This is a very serious anime. It is about love and tragedy. It get very involved with the character development and story. There is no action, but it doesn't need it. The drama keeps you glued to it. Everything about this anime is top quality; the animation, voice acting, soundtrack, and plot. ef is a brilliant anime series. If you like Clannad, Kanon, Air, or Angel Beats, this anime will really make you happy. Buy it. You'll be glad you did.

If I were to realistically define Memories with a single thought, it would be - "Romance that is executed to near perfection". If you are a fan of romance and drama, I would have no problem making this recommendation on the basis that I consider it a top contender for "stories that got it right". Memories introduces us to different groups of people that initially have a lot more to do with one another than we are led to believe. The focus of the show is highlighting important and influential moments in the lives of the main characters and how they can relate to one another.

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.
