Someday's Dreamers was an anime that I stopped watching and then came back to. I mostly didn't finish because I ran out of time, for I had requested the DVDs from my library. So I started again from the beginning, this time watching it in Japanese instead of how I'd previously watched in English.


The story stands out because instead of magic-users fighting evil, these people are working for the government. Kikuchi Yume comes to Tokyo to be an apprentice to become a mage. The series is not long, only 12 episodes, but it is enjoyable. While there are some parts that are serious, others are read more

5 WORDS OR LESS REVIEW: Good concept but disappointing

STORY – 6/10

It’s about Yume Kikuchi, a mage in training, equipped with more magical capabilities than the average mage, and how she learns more about magic during her stay in Tokyo. I think that the fact that Yume had tremendous magical capabilities was somehow forgotten throughout the series, among other things. Each episode had a storyline that was barely related to the other episodes, which made it difficult to like. It went from one story to another, leaving gaps in between, which made the story hard to follow.

Other than that, I found the concept of the read more

Someday's Dreamers is really an anime that works. It works in a way no other anime could work. It is a symbol of exactly what an anime should do. Sure, it's not the best one to do this, but it works.

Story: What I like about the story, and what works about it, is its slice of life. It just really connects. It asks us questions about what should we do in the situations presented. What would we do. If this "special power" actually existed, would those who have it deserve it. How would they use it. Stuff like that. It all applies to life. The read more

I enjoyed this story. It moved quite slowly at times, but it was beautiful and had some interesting coming-of-age drama. I wished that there was a little more character development of Yume's contemporary Angela -- she was one of the more interesting characters in the story, but we don't learn too much about her. Definitely recommend this series. I took a break from it a couple times before finishing, which I do not usually do -- primarily because the story was so slow moving. The opening and closing theme songs were good as well. I particularly liked Kaze No read more

Anime: Haibane Renmei
The heroines feel very alike, in both appearance and behavior, and the series are developed in a slow-paced slice of life manner. The stories speak about the hidden, magical (but not necessarily happy) side of things.

While Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto is about magicians, Haibane Renmei is about angels.

Anime: Aria The Animation
These two series invoke a serene and peaceful feeling with a slow, gentle kind of story. While Someday's Dreamers contains magic, it's very minimal and not remotely battle-oriented. Both series are about the protagonists meeting and helping different people while learning more about themselves. They both contain valuable life lessons that are revealed to the viewers and the other characters within the series.

Their similarity is strikingly strong and if you enjoy one you'll enjoy the other.

Anime: Natsu-iro Kiseki
While differently presented, both series follows a slow paced rhythm. The season that both series takes place in reflects a summer atmosphere that is hot, moist, and slow.

Both series has a slice of life feeling abut at the same time has a little supernatural element added to the mix.

Both series' main female protagonist also has a goal in her life along with their friends.

Anime: Kamichu!
A kind slow paced slice of life anime about a girl who helps people with her supernatural powers. On the one hand she's learning how to use her supernatural powers and on the other hand she's just the ordinary girl. She has a mentor who helps her to conciliate this parts of her personality. This anime is more like fairy tale than fantasy.

Anime: Majo no Takkyuubin
Slice of life of magical young girls, focused on their first work esperiences. The magical girls have to help and to do services for the normal human people, in order to get their own independence.

Anime: Kobato.
The fact that the main character in both anime tries to help others overcome usually emotional issues makes both series very similar.

Both are of the fantasy genre with magic here and there.
