Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two./YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Fridge Brilliance: memories: When Chihiro gets e-mails from her sister about Kei's own life, Kei writes about events that happen during the summer, when it's winter where Chihiro's side is. Then comes The Reveal where you find that the Chihiro's side is living on a second Otowa. In Australia. Thus, the season are reversed.
    • In melodies, think back over the course of the entire game, and how each couple slowly got shoved towards figuring things out. Yuuko always brutally exposed the problems everyone had to force them to face up to things, but who gave them the crucial last-second encouragement? Mizuki. Considering their backstory, this only makes sense.
    • What does "Ef" stand for? Apparently, there are plenty of songs that has "Ef" as initial, including in the Visual Novel. Eternal Feather. Emotional Flutter. Ever Forever. Euphoric Field. Ebullient Future. And Now You Know.
  • Moe: The amnesia-fueled, eye-patchy kind.
  • Narm: The scene in episode 11 where Renji and Chihiro finish their date by kissing and then having sex in the rooftop of the school loses quite a part of its emotion when you see Chihiro's clothes neatly and primorously folded on the floor, as if they were just ready for morning use. Waaaaay to distract the viewer from all of the dramatic tension there.
