…and a Happy Ending.
All of that encompasses this series which was not created by Makoto Shinkai, but he had a profound impact on its adaptation. Here in Part III of the Makoto Shinkai series, we will be taking a look at ef: A Tale of Memories, the first part of a 24 episode adaptation of the 2006 light novel series ef: A Tale of the Two.
It’s hard to nail down the story to one specific thing with this series because there are a few stories being told here. The first is that of Renji Asou and the developing love he has for Chihiro Shindou, who aspires to be a writer, but she has a bit of a problem, which I will detail in the characters section. Renji tries to help her overcome her struggles and starts to develop feelings for her.
