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.

Both are about what's going on in your unconsciousness. Both are about human experiments.

Ngl, I enjoyed this far more than I enjoyed those classics people rate 5/5 all the time. Really good drama, imo.

Gah, the acting is really bad but it's got a pretty cool storyline so I guess I'll carry on...

EDIT: Finished it, average. The storyline got a bit tedious after a while. The last couple of episodes were a bit better but very predictable. Acting was average at best. It had potential as the concept was cool but other things let it down. It's okay if you don't have anything else to do...

This show was beyond my expectations going into it. I was on the edge of my seat through every episode, and even a few times I was too stunned to do anything but stare at the screen. The final seconds of the series answered my two biggest questions... both of which I was right about! HAHAHA! I KNEW IT! Seriously, any fan of J-Drama should watch this show because it's totally addicting.
I wouldn't mind a special that talks about what happens... after. -smirk-

The last scenes with the kids being welcoming and the whole dancing thing... it was very moving and made me change the way I looked at the drama.
