The first episode is not a disappointment. In fact, I love it, really. This ef series really is one of those anime that will leave you a very good impression right at the very start.
It will certainly give you at least 3 or 4 mixed feelings in just 24 minutes of air time – and to think that this is just an opener. I’m really looking forward the next episodes and ’til the end.
Finally, (to those who haven’t played the game) we can see the story arcs of Yuu and Yuko (the mystery persons from Memories).
Overall, the animation is good just like the first series, the voice acting ain’t that bad, and the anticipation level is high. Let’s hope this unfolds another epic series. n_n
