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.

This OVA series is kinda like a hidden gem. The art and animation is very well done (it was originally an hentai series but it was so well made that it became a real series. It's nothing special but its one of my favorites just because of how sheer fun it is. It tries to be everything at once but somehow succeeds a little at this. If you are very adamant on plot in shows then this is not for you. If you want a good fun short show then this might be for you. Has a lot of fanservice which might be a turn-off ...

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.

Ill be honest, I want to like Dream Hunter Rem. You see, Dream Hunter Rem was a hentai. Then it turned out people liked it, so they threw some clothes on the characters and removed the penetration. What were left with is a storyline that had much potential but fails to deliver on the basics. Each story follows the same basic arc, although the 3rd OVA does switch it up. It was ...

Let's say Rem is the real "Angel" Cop instead of Angel.

So this is basically if Freddy Kruger was a girl and the hero instead of a villain?
