Waking up in a strange bedroom in a dream world, teenager Haruto Tsukishiro finds a strange app on his phone. When he activates the program, an odd woman appears and tries to drag him to her realm. Luckily, a mysterious, white-haired girl severs their connection and helps him escape, revealing that the woman is a witch; however, their conversation is cut short. As Haruto enters the realm again, he meets an anthropomorphic, talking cat named Katsumi Kanzaki. While the witch's minions pursue them, the white-haired girl opens a door for them to escape.
After their ordeal, Haruto describes their savior—which only he can see—and Katsumi, the leading authority on dream world research, realizes that she must be "Lily," a being that resurfaces repeatedly across multiple dreamscapes. Hoping to leave the dream world through a blue door, they enter the witch's realm once again. Finding themselves in peril, Lily reveals the truth to Haruto: witches suffer from "Sleeping Beauty Syndrome," a coma-like sleep state induced by torment in their real world lives. Thus, they cannot wake until they are defeated in the dream world.
After finally defeating the witch and locating the blue door, Haruto and Katsumi say their farewells, promising to meet up in the real world. However, when Haruto exits through the door he awakens in the dream world bedroom once more. Seeking answers, Haruto and Katsumi try to uncover the mysteries of the witches, Lily, and Haruto's own inability to leave the dream world.
I do not understand how this show has such a low score, the only explanation being that people dropped it after episode 1 which I agree wasn't the best.
Episodes 2 and 3 were excellently done though, so hopefully this little review can make you decide to give it another shot.
Story 8/10: This is a very episodic series with each episode being very different from the next. Episode 2 and 3 for example were very serious all the way through, while episodes 1 and 4 had serious parts but also had very cutesy kid like parts which imo pulled away from the messages trying to be
told. If they keep with the more serious tones from now on then this will be a great show, only time will tell though.
Art 8/10: The change in art depending on the episode is a great addition, they really help capture the differences that each episode is trying to portray.
Sound 8/10: Some really nice music to go along with the more dramatic pieces and the opening has really grown on me to become one of my favorites this season.
Characters 9/10: Characters so far have been just excellently done, getting attached to a side character that only shows up for one episode is not an easy task but this show has managed to do it multiple times now.
Enjoyment 8/10: Episode to episode enjoyment has varied greatly, from episode 1 being about a 5/10 but then episodes 2 and 3 being atleast a 9/10.
Overall 8/10: All I have to say is please do not drop this show because of the first episode, because the show definitely has alot more to show you if you give it a shot.
I look forward to more episodes like 2 and 3 from this show.
The story depicts the event where the MC is saving a lot of witches from their deep slumber. There is a Cat-Head Avatar who is in real life a doctor who has a daughter or sister sleeping maybe a witch too.
First Episode - Seems complicated to tackle down what's the main topic in the series, there is a girl who is claiming herself as the MC's sister. Well let's take aside from that point. This episode shows how the MC fought the Witch's dreams by the power of his dreams. As he finally settle down her, she promised to herself to find him.
- Well like what just happen to the first one, he tries to save her from her trauma. The trauma depicts her family being slaughtered by three murderers who was being pardon due to fact they are just 16 years old teenagers during that time.
By using the dreams, she killed them except the main leader who discovers that he can use the power of dreams yet he was killed by the MC to end her suffering. When she wakes up, she promised that she will find him too.
Third Episode - Well this kind of episode is very tricky, a girl who was in a sickbay trying her best to surpass her limits. With her weak body she lost her motivation to continue to go to school where the MC used to help her to regain it.
However, it seems that nothing is best because she turns to become a witch in the end. In the end of the episode, she was seen smiling indicating she was still alive while the MC is crying because of the letter he read.
Fourth Episode - Witch of Gluttony, another episode that is too complicated to understand. If I can do that I'll rate it 8.5/10 due to its complicated parts. However, it suddenly change when she explains why she always does that.
He finally saved her from her suffering while she thought of finding her new boyfriend.
See folks, this anime series is worth to watch. 10/10 Overall due to its original story, plot and everything else.
