Rem is an ordinary woman in our world but, in the world of dreams, she becomes a dream warrior, defending humanity from the evils there. When dream demons reach the waking world, she fights them with the help of her pets which transform into a tiger and wolf.


Dream Hunter Rem was originally supposed to be a hentai OVA, but the first episode proved so popular that the following two episodes were released for the general market, with episode one being redone as a non-hentai "Special Version," with the sex scenes removed. The original, hentai episode one was never released on LaserDisc or DVD.

Its been a while since I've watched this anime and it ain't up on the net anymore so here we go; based on memory

Story - 8
The premise is unique for a magical girl anime; our young teen heroine is a long line of dream hunters, people able to enter others dreams and combat the demons that lurk within those vulnerable to their influence. The parallel story arcs concerning the real world and the dream world and the transitions between can get quite interesting. Otherwise, the anime takes a lot of elements from fantasy anime (Valis style magic swords vs huge monsters), magical girl, horror (Kruger ...

Mixed Feelings
Quick take: Live action pornography doesn't have very good storylines either ... or so I've been told. There are many problems with this hentai-turned-legit series that I just found it hard to pay attention.
