Just finished both of the series. Never thought I'd find Tales of Melodies better, after enjoying a heck of a lot of Memories. I particularly enjoyed seeing the anime jump from past to present, back and forth I felt more for the characters in tale of melodies than memories, especially for Yuuko. I wonder if they can get another series in since the manga is still ongoing.

Quick question,

Which couple do you think had the best story?

I prefer the Renji and Chihiro story. In regards to memories vs. melodies, I prefer memories, mainly because it has 2 very good stories while melodies has 1 that is very good and 1 that is so-so.

I enjoyed Melodies more. While I didn't really care too much for Mizuki's story, Yuuko's was really great. Memories was a lot of fun as well, and I certainly loved them both, but Yuuko's story may be one of the single greatest things I have seen. As soon as MangaGamer gets ahold of Ef: The Latter Tale, I am certainly buying both visual novels.

As far as continuing mangas go, I don't think that means much. I am pretty sure that the show (and Manga) are based on the visual novels (NSFW:http://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=1&product_code=22). The Wikipedia article refers to the manga as an adaptation of the visual novels (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ef_a_fairy_tale_of_the_two#Manga). It is written by the scenario writers of the VN, though, so I guess it could contain additional canon material that could possibly be adapted, but I wouldn't count on it.

Memories kicks the shit out of melodies IMO.

Memories is one of my favorite romantic dramas ever and it's just so beautiful to look at the art animation.

Melodies was a letdown that couldn't hold up to what Memories was.

Memories definitely. But Melodies is still good. It kinda connects everything together.

Melodies is more serious while Memories has more generic settings. I thought these shows were both extremely engaging, and were equal. I loved how minor characters and major characters switched roles between the series and they received character development throughout both. This series is definitely a gem.

To answer the OP: The best relationship was without a doubt: Yuuko and Himura.
