Storyline

In a story set years in the past, Himura Yuu is a studious and diligent young man intent solely on maintaining his top academic position at Otowa Academy. One day, he meets a mysterious girl named Amamiya Yuuko, who, to his surprise, recognizes him. Memories of a distant childhood, memories rather left forgotten - meeting Yuuko again will force Yuu to confront the regrets and sorrows of their collective pasts and presents. In the present, Kuze Shuuichi may seem like a womanizer, but upon closer inspection, is a man who would rather be left alone. Hayama Mizuki, however, is not the type of girl who would let him be, especially after hearing the beautiful sounds of his violin performance. As Mizuki attempts to become closer to him, Kuze attempts to push her away - the tale of their budding relationship is darkened with undertones of an imminent tragedy.

A very touching story: you must see this anime!!!
9 May 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Just 10 doesn't make justice :)) The music is very, very, very good as the anime itself.

It also continue the story from the series "ef - a tale of memories", about Yu Himura and Yuko Amamiya’s relationship and Mizuki Hayama and Kuze Shuichi's relationship and also about the others. Kuze-san finally decides to make an surgically operation which is very risky, but with the high hopes gained from the others he succeeds :) About the Yu and Yuko, -well- you better see yourselves. I liked very much the episode where Mizuki responds to the many questions of Kuze-san and how she sing.

Execuse my very bad English:)), but it's unfair for this excellent anime to not have comments. A comment with many mistakes it's better than none:))
