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.

Story: Basically the majority of the series is made up of mini episodes only lasting one or sometimes two chapters alot of the stories are eary with cases of abuse or love that is not going well. 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.

This manga isn't as common as others, and it has not yet been made into an anime. Many people think it would make a great anime, while others think it's just fine as a manga.

This manga mostly fits into the fantasy-type genre. It doesn't really have a distinguishable plot until the very end; each volume contains chapters with mini stories. The manga mainly centers around the main character, a Baku who enters peoples' dreams and eats them, so I understand why it was a bit difficult to create a plot from just that. As the story continues on, it starts to focus more on other read more

Not the darkest thing I have ever read, but still dark enough to enjoy. Every chapter tends to end with a sense of irony, especially toward the beginning of the series. So far, a few of them have even had the potential to be fairly disturbing (probably moreso for some than others). Fair warning: Nothing seems to end well in this manga, although a new main character introduced a few volumes will provide occasional comic relief later on. The world and the characters are introduced and expanded on gradually, as a sort of suspense that really fits in with this manga's style.
