Haunted by a recurring dream, young Madotsuki travels to another world every night. In this place, she faces a room containing 12 doors. Armed with curiosity and determination, Madotsuki sidelines her worries and voyages through these worlds, searching for the cause of their existence.

With each door hiding a unique theme, scenery, and dynamic, Madotsuki learns that the dream worlds are cunning and life-threatening. Will she resolve the mystery behind the 12 doors, or will she become bound to the dreamscape?

While I consider Yume Nikki the game as one of my favorite video games ever, the manga is an atrocity. The way the characters are portrayed don't match the way they react within the game at all. The story of the manga seems to be completely out of place due to the genuinely dark nature of the game. The art is quite an eyesore, the characters have no mouths, Madotsuki always has her eyes closed in a very irritating way, and the surrealistic nature of the game is not captured at all in the manga. The art is so bad, that it is hard not read more

Ah, another manga adaptation from game..

As fan of RPGMaker game, i was excited to know that Yume Nikki has it own manga.. The story itself is about a girl who always dream about same things, and someday she decided to exploring her dream..

Story: 8 / 10

In-game, there has no actual plot, just explore her dream. But in manga adaptation, there has actual plot. I didn't expected that, but that is good things.. Although it has actual plot, i little bit disappointed that as story go on, because Yume Nikki lack exploring things..

Art: 7 / 10

In my opinion, the art style well fit together along the read more

It was 2014 when I got to know about indie games, "Anonymous people that make games that are not financed by any company" or more or less that way I understand the concept. Some time later, spending the internet of my cell phone for watching bored Tops, I found one that listed the indies games: And that's when I met Yume Nikki: "A hikikomori girl who travels to the world of dreams when she goes to sleep ". The curious thing is that his genre was "LSD" that, as far as I know, was an older videogame that I will not talk about because that read more

So when reading many complaints people have against this manga, it's important to understand that all versions of Yume Nikki are different stories. The same dream worlds are contextualized completely differently between versions, resulting in very different subtext. Given both the games rely almost entirely on subtext to tell their stories, that alone should indicate that they are separate stories, even without them having wildly different endings.

More importantly than trying to convince you whether the manga is good or bad, I would like the take-away to be that it's not beholden to the original work other than its use of the basic setting and characters. read more
