There are several stories building up in this series from the looks of it, but the main two revolve around a guy and a girl. This guy likes hanging out at an abandoned train station and reading, but one day he encounters a girl with an eyepatch hanging out there as well. They converse briefly, then part ways. This cycle continues until one day the girl runs up to the guy and embraces him tearfully. After she calms down she asks if they can be friends, and the guy agrees with a big smile on his face.
I know I should call the cops, but damn, I love making monkey faces with corpses While outside a girl different from the one before races by him in pursuit of someone she claims stole her purse. He rounds a corner and sees his bike in pieces and the girl lying in the street, apparently out cold. The guy tries to get her to stay behind and wait for help, but she walks away, so he follows. As they walk in a park she says that nothing in her purse was of much value.
Frees is also many, many of the voices in the attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean. He was used by Disney for other attractions as well, and his talents are heard in countless movies and TV shows.
Sadly, Paul Frees passed away in the mid 's. Another prolific voice actor and singer who helped shape Disney classic attractions is Thurl Ravenscroft. Thurl was well-known by countless millions as the voice of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes cereal mascot, "Tony the Tiger.
His image can be seen as one of the "singing busts" in the graveyard scene. Thurl is the singer with the mustache, the one who is often mistaken by some guests as "Walt Disney" Walt does not appear in the attraction.
Which girl, if either, will he choose? Will Hiro finally find a balance between school and work? What will happen to the rejected girl s? Will Chihiro finish her novel? Will Renji find his true path in life? So many questions to be answered! Some of that interesting and unique artwork. And this series does indeed address all of them in just twelve episodes.
The stories are more about emotion than action, and that, coupled with a handful of brief nude scenes, makes this a series for more mature anime fans. At times it could be a bit melodramatic, but once you get into the heart of the show, you get caught up in the drama. The art was really interesting and beautiful.
At the outset it kind of looks like a lot of other big-eyed anime shows, but the techniques with the various silhouettes and colours really made the artwork stand out. The opening and closing themes were both pretty and hopeful, and I really enjoyed the background music that sounded like 80s-style synthesizers 80s new wave is my bread and butter. We never find out who that mysterious nun-type gal is. Maybe in season two? Speaking of voices, the English dub was excellent, calling on industry pros like Luci Christian and Greg Ayres.
Since the anime is based on a series of adult visual novels, that kind of makes sense. As for the first season, Ef: A Tale of Memories is a very heartfelt anime, executed impeccably, that older fans should certainly not miss.
And I still enjoyed it several episodes in. Keima's worldview consists of whatever is on the screen in front of him. Elsie isn't a gamer, so she just doesn't understand. They hide in the hearts of girls, for some strange reason, so Keima has to put aside his disgust with reality and use all of his dating sim tricks of the trade in order to woo the girls who are the unknowing hosts. Keima's harem covers all the bases: a nadeshiko, a tsundere, a meganekko without glasses , a yandere, and a sporty girl.
I really enjoyed this series at the beginning. I thought that Elsie was cute, though nothing special when it comes to daffy sidekicks. Most of all I really liked the premise and was eager to watch it all unfold. But then somewhere along the way things fell a bit flat. There are four girls that Keima must pursue in season one. The first story arc was hilarious, and quite quickly resolved. The second took a bit longer but remained funny throughout.
There were a couple of filler episodes, and one involving Keima trying to beat a bugged dating sim made me tear up with laughter. I hated the character of the girl because she was boring and almost painful to watch; I hated the setting, which was repetitive and repressive, and I hated the total lack of anything funny.
It was a longer arc, which made it worse, and I found myself getting depressed just by watching it. I had high hopes that the final episode would make up for lost laughter, but it did nothing to redeem itself. In godlike mode Keima is nearly invincible. In his own mind, that is. The series seemed to try to become too serious, which in turn made the show depressing because the girl who the final story arc revolved around was herself depressing. Keima was also kind of joyless by the end, in my opinion, and that only left Elsie as a character to cling to, but she was never that exciting and could hardly be considered a reason to watch all on her own.
The art was solidly good anime art, but nothing extraordinary or new. The music was just okay, though I did always enjoy the opening theme as well as the song that crops up in the final two episodes.
Basically, the whole series was a bit of a letdown. Doc Link. The Description EP. Skillz EP. Jinx , Ryan Truman. Feelin Horny EP. Ed The Spread. The Monologue Of Rah! Block Party EP. Dark Dirty Sexy!
