They usually involve people close to her, such as classmates, and she tries her best to warn people. Mutoi Ayami is Kotou Yukio's teacher. She's distant from her students, but soon becomes involved with Kotou Yukio's problem.
What can I say about perhaps my favorite J-Drama of all time? It made me laugh! It made me cry! It made me cower in fear from the creepiness of GACKT-san laughing evilly...
I HIGHLY recommend this series. The music's good, the acting is great, and the premise behind the story is out of this world. Sure some of the special effects aren't that great, but in all honesty, it's a show dealing with dreams... it doesn't have to always look real. There were so many twists and turns in the plot and at one point I literally stared at the screen with my mouth hanging open for a good five minutes because I was so shocked! It's one of the few Drama's that when it finished just made me happy. Really and truly happy.
The premise is about a little girl who has dreams of the future, and her grandfather records them on this weird machine he created. By a twist of fate (and an important plot point I won't reveal) the little girl begins to share her 'nightmares' with her school teacher, a woman who claims that she can control her own dreams. The only problem is, the little girl's nightmares start creeping into her own night time fantasies! At first I thought it would be really episodic, but once you get to the end of the series, everything gels together perfectly. I also really got into the characters because they all have a personality of their own and are so completely unique to one another, from the crazy PE teacher to a dream prince that starts popping up in the strangest of places, "Akumu-chan" really is a fun and fantastic ride through dreams, nightmares, and reality and how all three blend together to form every day life and all it's intricacies.
