Planzet, ef: A Tale of Memories Subbed Premiere
Posted by: Rai | July 27, 2012
This week concludes our month long movie premieres with what is probably the best looking CGI mechas I've ever seen. Planzet is sure to deliver on the action and has a great story to boot, so don't miss it. After watching our movie of the week, kick back and watch ef: A Tale of Memories, now rolling out in subtitled form. Hope you're closing out your July anime list, because August will be insane!
In 2047, an unknown alien life-form descends to Earth, destroying all the major cities in one fell swoop. Jump forward to the present: 2053. A last, desperate counterattack is being mounted against the enemy. Hiroshi Akishima, soldier in the Planetary Defense Forces Alliance, would like nothing better than a shot at the aliens responsible for his father’s death six years ago. However, the new offensive requires a powerful weapon to be dropped, leaving the entire planet terribly vulnerable once more. Will humanity regain the stars or lose everything in the final, ultimate gamble?
ef: A Tale of Memories (Subbed)
One Christmas Eve, Hiro Hirono meets Miyako and discover they go to the same school. Kei, Hiro's childhood friend, becomes jealous of Miyako and sets out to prove that she’s the only one for him. Renji Asou meets Chihiro Shindou at an abandoned train station only to soon discover that she suffers from a rare form of amnesia. Her condition has made Chihiro's dream of writing a novel an impossible task. Now, however, Renji is determined to help her fulfill that dream. Don’t miss one of anime’s masterpieces: ef ~ A Tale of Memories!
