Have you ever wondered what your dreams possibly meant? How about your nightmares? And have you ever wished there was someone who could help you with them?

Enter Hiruko, a dream-eater demon. He interprets and helps people with their nightmares at the condition that he gets to eat the nightmares afterwards. He doesn’t go hungry, because there are plenty of unfortunate folk seeking his help.

There is no general plot that I can see yet, and every chapter seems to deal with a different client and case, so it’s great if you like oneshots. The cases are all very interesting, and entering the nightmares is the best read more

When I first started the series I had just finished the Law of Ueki; a completely different so I wasn't prepared for such a dark series but even though it was dark it wasn't bad.

You would hope these people with there nightmares would have a happy ending but that doesn't nessicarily happen. This is disturbing but also thrilling; you can't be sure what will happen.

These two manga aren't entirely the same, but something that is comparable is what the main characters do after they solve a mystery/dispell nightmares. They eat them. Neuro eats the mystery to fill himself, and Hiruko does the same but it's dreams.
The premise of both is very similar. There is a shop run by a baku and his
assistant(s) where people go to rid themselves of their nightmares. The baku in both (Hiruko in Nightmare Inspector or Baku in Sousoukyoku Nightmare) is very focused about getting their sustenance and seemingly not much else. So far, Nightmare Inspector shows more character development and backstory, while Sousoukyoku Nightmare is nearly entirely focused on the personal reformations of the guests.
