As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.
These are slice of life stories about following your dreams and battling the mental barriers that are in the way. Writing is a theme of both. They also show complex relationships and how artists have to make difficult choices.

Both anime are romance anime for an older audience. They look at how memory affects personality. They also focus on multiple relationships. Their animation styles are jarringly different and Ef is slightly less grounded in reality than Golden Time, furthermore, the characters of each anime are different ages (high school vs College age) however fans of one should definitely try out the other.

Ef - a tale of memories and Haibane Renmei are more similar than you would naturally think. They are both series that possess a sense of deeper philosophical thought that is slowly revealed as the characters develop and the story unfolds. They always have a overwhelming melancholic vibe to them that enriches the premise.The premise of both series is the search and desire of loss memories believing they are the real personality of ones self. Haibane Renmei also deals with the concept of sin and purgatory whereas Ef is more focused on the matters of love and maturity.They both indeed are great watches and hold a special place in my heart.
