I say this with love but
I don't like Nozaki-kun
and
Pandora Hearts anime wasn't by Deen, it was by Xebec.
(My thoughts after reading a small portion of your anime tags.)

Even in a dream of an alternative reality tinged with the melancholic what-ifs, it remains apparent that the lack of shogi would constitute the real nightmare, as opposed to the living nightmare of losing 4 straight sets to Souya. It is evident how much Shimada loves shogi, and how it has come to define his life. He simply could not live a fulfilling existence without it.

Going against the flow of general thought and opinions, Shimada’s dream expressed the different perspective of those aspiring to become masters.
A peaceful life in the countryside waited for him back in his hometown, and he knew it. Even the highest fulfilment in other forms was not worth it in his eyes, if those dreams entailed ending his aspirations of playing professional shogi.

For a professional aiming to become a master, ordinary desires are not a mere passing fantasy that can be so easily embraced. It is a distraction, a haunting temptation that one must aggressively battle to reject day after day; a threat endangering his present chances of winning and moving on to play in that same hometown which he deeply loves. Although he overcame such a struggle, the aim was not attained. His subsequent loss to Souya has to make you ask whether it was worth the sacrifice. To us, perhaps not, but for someone who loves shogi as much as Shimada does, I have no doubt that there would be a lack of regret on his part, apart from the wish of doing better.

Shimada’s wistful dream does not make me feel sad. In hindsight, perhaps it does, given the outcome of the match. But at the time, it really drove me into believing and hoping that Shimada could somehow win. The manic energy emanating from his very being and the crazy look in his eyes were not unlike Gotou. Feeling the intense resolve and emotions directed towards achieving victory gave his otherwise down to earth character an incredible amount of energy and vibrancy. But alas, victory was not to be.
