  • dashing start to a flop at the finish line.
    The first ten episodes were each fun and unique to eachother changing in tone and artstyle. Each episode is self-contained and focuses on coming to terms with the individual problems of the witch of the week. While not terribly complicated the series does insist on a particapatory mind in viewing. Turning one's mind off while viewing may be a very confusing experience. . . a bit like a real dream ...

  • I have mixed feelings
    I have some mixed feelings about this series. On the one hand, I love the concept, and the fact that no episode is like the one that came before it. The fact that they were able to do that impresses me. On the other hand... It seems too short, and the actual plot really fell through.
    Some of the episodes truly encompassed the randomness that a dream actually has (I think the first episode is the ...

  • Huh... I Didn't Expect That. Really Really Cool.
    I want to start by saying, I get it. This anime is weird.
    If you're here to watch a harem or sci-fi anime show, you'd better turn around and rethink, because unless you approach this series open-minded and realize that it's actually a deep, philosophical, surrealist, escapist, art-house drama/thriller, you won't find any enjoyment in this.
    With that being said, this anime is probably the most ...

  • Terrible Show, Watch it for how much of a mess it is.
    This show is a mess, the quality of everything fluctuates every episode, but that's because each episode is directed by a different person. This, along with the premise, makes it a unique watching experience that you should watch yourself to make up your own mind. That being said, DO NOT EXPECT MUCH.

  • Terrible art, but watchable
    This show has hands down the worst art of any show I've watched all the way through. I swear there isn't a single frame of this anime in which a character's eyes are facing the same direction. But for some reason, I did still watch it.

    There's a lot of pseudo-philosophy in the dialogue, but it never felt preachy or obvious and while the art and animation were both bad, they were also oddly ...

  • I wanted to like this
    I love surreal anime, but the drastic shift in visuals and lack of any character progression holds this back. In the second episode the lead character actively does something that goes against the morals of the person who is helping, and there's no reference to this later. The status quo was upset at the end of episode and it's not addressed. Episodic shows only work if things go back to where ...

  • This show is under-rated
    It has a strange vibe to it but after seeing the 1st episode my 1st thought was "Nightmare on Elm Street" and the 2nd episode was pretty much that.

    This is a really depressing show that punches you in the feelz every single week, not 1 episode was normal, all of them so far have made me go "what the fuuuu~".

    I appreciate this show, makes me get emotional sometimes because I can relate.

    Don't Be Fooled by the Poor Synopsis (or Your Preconceived Notions, Either!)
    This one is a combination of a poor synopsis and my preconceived notions keeping me from this show earlier.

    "After going to sleep like normal, Haruto Tsukishiro wakes up to discover something unbelievable—he's stuck in dream world! Here, witches plague the dreamscape and are more than dreamy figments—they're the trapped souls of young women who've rejected reality and are afflicted by the ...

    For Something based off a mobile game, this is surprisingly deep.
    The animation may throw some off(though I personally enjoy it). It's based off a mobile puzzle game(available here in the US, as of this review, my main character is lvl 22) that is pretty addictive. The story revolves around completing various puzzle stages to unlock memories to defeat witches, the 'shadows' of a sleeping beauty that will let them unlock their 'persona'(actually called Goddess in ...

    Amazing Anime! Really brings you in
    Found this anime during my free trial with premium. Loved the first episode and wasn't sure how they were going to make it better, but they did. The second episode took a pretty far turn from the first and the third took an even bigger step in a different direction. It keeps you wanting more and always leaves you trying to guess what will happen next.
