Yumeria is a 12 episode (300+ minutes) series that follows Tomokazu Mikori, your basic loser who admits that he is a pervert. On his 16th birthday, he falls asleep, only to enter a world where he meets Mone, a young girl who will alter past and future events. It is now up to Tomokazu to save those he cares about from the Faydoom, evil creations in the dream world that are trying to invade the waking world. If he fails, all will be lost and the future devastated. Whats a 16 year old, perverted-loser to do?

The series was pretty good and I found that the trailor that I viewed before I bought it didn't do the series justice. Yes, Tomokazu is a pervert in the series, but not to the extent that the trailor put him as, being as some people understandably don't like perverts. The story also reminded me somewhat of the Matrix in that it spans two worlds, where an event in one will affect the other. This is also one of those series where you have to watch in order to understand everything that is going on and as this story style, as previous reviewer put, "sucks you in". Even with a complex storyline, the pieces do fit in an easy to understand way (once you see it), like with me I caught myself saying "Oh that's why so and so did such and such". The story also makes indirect, outside references to other anime series such as Sailor Moon and Sister Princess, these two being ones that I could pick out right away.

Character design and special affect design was outstanding. I would go as far as to say that the people who worked on these affects are some of the best, if not the greatest, from what I've seen so far. The characters were cute, and if not, then visually appealing in that they catch your eye.

Meet Tomokazu Mikuri, an average everyday boy leading an average everyday dull life. Then his 16th birthday comes and is yet another dull day in his life, but when he goes to sleep, he finds himself in a strange world. After looking around, he sees a giant monster and a little girl with wings doing battle with one another. The girl falls from the sky and Tomokazu saves her and using a power (that's currently unknown to him) recharges the girl so she can defeat the monster.

Upon waking, the girl from his dream is laying in bed with him. Tomokazu has inherited a special power, and that power is to save the everyday world and the dream world from fierce monsters made from the dark thoughts and feelings of people; bent on destroying both worlds. Tomokazu with Mone (the girl from his dreams) as well as childhood friend Mizuki, Kuyou, Neneko/Neito, Megumi, and a mysterious person known as Silk to defend both worlds from destruction. But they can only defend both worlds while they are asleep.

I'll leave my little preview at that because I don't really want to give away too much of the story for those who are interested in purchasing this anime. I picked this up at a special Best Buy event because I thought that it sounded pretty cool and I must say that it's not bad, it's actually quite funny and pretty cool. One of the wildest characters in the show has to be Tomokazu's teacher, who seems to have a thing for "lolitas" especially Mone (don't worry, other than pervish behavior nothing sexual happens) There's plenty of comedy packed into these 12 episodes especially between Tomokazu and his teacher, but there's also plenty between Tomokazu and the girls as well.

Overall, to me this was a great anime, very fun and entertaining as well as suspenseful, the show seemed to "suck me in" and I was practically on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen in their battles or what kind of insanely funny thing was gonna pop up next.

I won't repeat the storyline. The animation is good and the characterization is as well. (Even if a little generic). Worth watching in either the dubbed or the subtitled version. Dubbing is very good, keeping the spirit and humor of the series. I'll say it's not spectacular, but it is above average. Voice acting is excellent, especially "Mone" who manages to convey her meaning throughout the series with only the word mone as dialog. It was worth the price.

I could see this appealing to a young (teenage male) audience.

I had seen some pretty mediocre reviews for this online at other sites. Then I saw some great reviews here and decided to buy it...
I've been betrayed by the reviews here a couple times... and I thought this would be different but it wasn't.

It isn't remarkable... there is plenty of fan service... but this holds little else of value in my opinion.

It is pretty middle of the road anime. When it was over my wife and I were not excited to see a follow up if there is one...

So here is my breakdown:

1) The art: Pretty average. It reminds me of stuff you would see from a low budget project. Compared to the cover art it lacks considerably. The production quality isn't the highest I've seen when it comes to the art.

2) The audio: I really enjoy bubbly anime soundtracks so I found that to be the best part of this anime. The audio is fun and playful so I really liked it... The audio is why I bumped this from 2 stars to 3.

3) The Boxset: Again pretty average the back particularly suggests some fan service and this does well in that department. The fan service isn't so "in your face" that you are offended but they lay it on pretty thick. The box is pretty standard. It does however look good in your collection.

4) The Characters: The depth in the character development is done pretty well. But it follows the standard harem anime formula. One Lolita-type, One Mature and Sexy, One very young and playful, and two that you are closer to being at odds for the affection of the target male.

They do make some effort to give you the back story for each character and that part is done pretty well...
