I know ef – a fairy tale of the two has gotten an anime adaptation, probably several manga adaptations, and a light novel adaptation. However, I’ve just finished the original visual novel, and am basing all my knowledge of the series off that. Yes, the visual novel! I’ve read them for a while, and hope to review some more in the future. Now ef was originally split into two parts, The First Tale, and The Latter Tale. I’ve played both parts so I’ll be covering both parts. The first half, The First Tale, was released on December 22, 2006, whereas The Latter Tale was released on May 30, 2008. The games were released by the developer minori, and were quite a hit. In fact, ef has been licensed for release outside Japan by the company MangaGamer, so it’ll be nice to see that in the future.
