Four disparate groups of friends. Different places. Different times. Different lives. Yet, their destinies are inexplicably interwoven, and what happens to any one group will, in the end, affect them all.

To the dismay of his childhood friend Kei, Hiro starts hanging out with Miyako. When Renji Asou meets Chihiro Shindou at an abandoned train station, he doesn't notice anything unusual at first, but he soon discovers that she suffers from a rare disease.

Soon enough, however, he remembers a girl he met long ago, and begins to rediscover old, half-forgotten feelings.

ef - A Tale of Memories & Melodies Blu-ray

by

A touching and beautiful romantic series that manages to provide hard and, sometimes, dark drama as well as a sweet and heartfelt moments. This a romantic series for people who don't usually like the usual romantic stories: There's clear progression in the relationships and a proper conclusion. Little to no fanservice as well unusual circumstances surrounding certain characters that might arise moral questions from the audience. Its worth noting that the series has also a lot of symbolism and artistic statements. I can also recommend the dub for those who like English audio.

In this collection you get both seasons of the series ef and for a pretty decent price I might add. Really worth it in my opinion.

Worth a look

I'm writing this just finishing the 2nd season.. It's hard to critique each season individually especially since the story is so intertwined together. Its also worth noting that this series is compared to Visual Arts/Key stories... I find that comparison to be unfair as this does not have the same elements found in "Key" Stories.... and "Minori" does quite well on it's own with this title without the comparison.

This series at some points can be quite confusing.. the characters do look VERY alike.. and with the constant camera perspective changing.. it's easy to miss the fact that locale and Time seems to have no meaning. This more so in the Tale of Melodies (2nd Season). There are some very questionable moments.. remember this is a series based off a Gal Game.. The age gap between 2 characters.. crosses a line that is creepy.

If you get used to the locale/time jumping a very well written story is found.
