Ef a tale of Melodies ep 11 + series review

Special post. Spoilers ahead. I wont be doing a detailed recap but this was a special episode.

Recap:

Kuze starts off asking himself why he wants to be with Mizuki. He eventually breaks all his masks in his mind and goes to the roof to accept her challenge. When he get there, Mizuki kicks him. She claims that she has killed him and he is now reborn as a new person. She wants to answer all of his questions from the last meeting, but they all turn out to be because she loves him. She says happiness, sorrow, loneliness and completeness are all part of love. As they finish making up, she tries to run into his arms, but he moves back and she falls. He claims it was revenge for before. However as everything is going fine, he collapse from his disease. He is admitted to the hospital and Yuu says that the only possible cure would only last 3 years, and comes with a very low success rate. When mizuki talks with Kuze he says he wants to try, even if this is the first time he ever thought he would lose. Near the end the EKG flatlines, but recovers.

Thoughts:

Episode:

A little short with two insert song, which is the opening to the first season and Mizuki singing Yuuko's song. But i felt it was a nice treat. other than that, we got a treat with a alternate OP and ED. Kuze gets off his ass and decides to keep living which is nice. I wish they didn't chicken out and actually killed off Kuze, but i guess with the death of Yuuko, it would be too much heartache for one show. And i guessed since her introduction that Miki is Mizuki, which is confirmed by the ED. The whole big risk/low chance story is very reminiscent of Hantsuki which was an awesome romance anime.

Series:
A great romance anime. Expectations are high for this series coming off the first one, but it didn't disappoint. The tragedy of Yuuko was quite a surprise. Combined with Kuze about to die, keeps you on the edge of your seat. I also don't really see any characters i hated (with the exception of the teacher) so unlike the first we don't feel like we need to emphasize with a character we hate.

SeedFreedom said...

so who is this?

Readers said...

not telling?

Riven Uchiwa said...

RAWR! You shall tell before I hurt someone.....or not. Unless you are lying. Then I will kill you....or not :P. Just tell us already before I become more confused.

Readers said...

you're threatening me with violence against somebody else? well i guess that might make me tell you depending on who you plan to hurt

Readers said...

you people give up? lame...

SeedFreedom said...

give us a clue then. but it better be or good one or riven might snap.

Readers said...

well... i'm a person... just another person in this whole world of people...

Riven Uchiwa said...

Who do you want me to hurt? That isn't a very good hint! It makes me more angry. If I was the Hulk I would have leveled a few cities by now.

Readers said...

i don't want you to hurt anybody :( and try not to level too many cities, you might get taken away and then what would we do?

Riven Uchiwa said...

Well then tell us, cause I'm sure to level a few cities and then the men in white coats will have to take me away.

Readers said...

it's ok, we break you out

SeedFreedom said...

small little note: lets try to keep real names off.

Riven Uchiwa said...

I totally agree with SeedFreedom. It is much better to keep the real names out of this.

Readers said...

cuz you never know who might be stalking seedfreedom online and wants to gather enough information to stalk them in person
