Fuguno Matsuo has never had a girlfriend all his 24 years in life and what makes things worse is that a fortune teller predicted that he never will. However, when he laid his eye on Nagisa-sensei he fell in-love right away and began earnestly wooing her. Along comes Hamaoka, a co-worker who is smitten with Fuguno, and a love-triangle ensues.
This anime Yume de Aetara is pretty good for the year it was made. It made me laugh and enjoy it.
STORY: the story of this anime is cool. It is more like a short "LOVE HINA." Basically loves Masuo Fuguno, yet gets in bad situations with another girl who likes him, Miho Hamaoka. Every time that happens Nagisa Shiozaki sees it or finds out about, she over thinks about it and flips out. It goes back and forth about it forgiving and over exaggerating about it. The ending though, I don't like it. It could be another season or not. I just don't
Art: It's actually goor for the time it came out.
Sound: Same thing as art, maybe better.
Characters: I actually like all of them, yet Nagisa can be a b#### but that is her character.
First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.
OVA was more enjoyable
Maybe back in days when I started watching Anime I would have enjoyed this sort of story more. But as for now, it seriously felt that the story was somewhat ruined by the comedic aspect. The whole relationship "triangle" was overshadowed by comedy. It was rotation of shy and weak willed character bouncing between two girls in the grasp of bad luck and stupid situations. I did love the cute moments between the lead character and the long haired woman and the moment 2nd
female character came into the play, it started to feel very obnoxious and just plain stupid. I do understand it's the whole "comedic" aspect of this Anime, but as said, it just feels horrible and maybe would been enjoyable if had watched this years ago.
As whole, I felt the story was actually okay. But from enjoyment side it felt a bit too moronic and infuriating.
✦Art & Sound
Art/animation for it's time was actually quite okay. Fair enough, cannot say it's either good or bad.
Music was mostly mediocre with only 1 or 2 memorable soundtracks.
Main guy is a bit weak-willed working manboy. Who has feelings for one of the female lead characters, but as well he is lead around by other woman too much.
As for 2 female leads. To sum it up, 1 is shy woman who is a bit selfish and kinda forces guy into stupid mindgames. Whilst second lead is cheerful moeblob who somewhat uses her cuteness as means to manipulate main guy.
Now.. this is to sum them up the general gist of the main characters. Cannot say much else as it would lead to spoilers. In short, characters are kinda okay, but the way story is put, the characters feel quite annoying.
But I do have to mention 1 of the side-characters. Nagisas (long haired fmc) friend probably was the best character in this whole Anime.
I'm horrid with remember names thus barely mentioned any.
✦Enjoyment & Overall
Long story short. It's moronic comedy Anime centering around romance triangle, whereas all characters are weak and played around with the whole time. But it has somewhat solid story and finale.
So if you like this sort of comedy, you will probably enjoy this Anime more than I did.
