Yume de Aetara is a story about one guy Fuguno Masuo (a complete loser when it comes to relationship with women) and two girls: Shiozaki Nagisa and Hamaoka Miho. Since the story is pretty simple (and hilariously funny), further explanation will spoil everything (take the hint: watch it yourself!)

For a short 3 episode OVA, "yume de aetara" is actually a pretty good anime. It manages to nicely establish the premise, introduce the characters, have a classic conflict and then finish off with a satisfying ending. All of that in roughly 90 mins. There is also a TV version of this anime but I would recommend watching the OVAs as they compact the story into longer episodes so it's easier to watch.

The story itself follows the male lead, Fuguno Masuo, as he struggles to find a suitable partner. This is where the two main female characters come in, Shiozaki Nagisa and Hamaoka Miho. ...

Picked this up on a whim in a used store with no prior knowledge of what to expect.. in doing some research online before watching it I found several reviews, which all seemed to paint an image of a sub-par, run of the mill, cliché ridden release. I also found that there was a re-release 2-disc set complete with the alternate 16 episode tv-series for the same price I paid for this used single disc OVA only release.

After watching it, I’m going to certainly agree with the reviews I found online.. it honestly seemed as though it may have been written as a student project ...
