ef – a tale of memories
I like the surreal feeling which is created by the way ef – a tale of memories is animated. Only problem is that because it’s being made by SHAFT one can’t be really sure if this is intended or if they are again using the story as mere base for showing off their made animation skillz (which didn’t went well with some of their latest works). Well, so far it’s comprehensible and quite enjoyable, the characters are likeable and especially Chihiro’s fate is pretty touching.
Watching the everyday life of the three sisters featured in Minami-ke is highly entertaining and relaxing. It literally emits good vibration. Each sister has a unique and well balanced combination of strong and weak points which makes their interaction pretty enjoyable and through the including of each girls individual school life and circle of friends a lot of variety should be ensured. Two thumbs up.
