    Not My Favorite But...
    I've been playing 18 Dream World for a few months now and feel like it is better at describing the situation (how they are stuck in a dream world) than the anime. This being said, the anime does have a different take on the interactions with the witches than in the game and might be worth watching because of it. While I'm not too fond of the animation and differences in character design from ...

    Not uninteresting, but you can tell it's a game adaptation
    I'm not familiar with the original game, but this follows the standard flow of the 'galge' genre. Protagonist wakes up, immediately meets a cute girl in his bedroom. Story ensues with more girls along the way.

    The storytelling and pacing is a bit jerky. We're not given much characterization for the protagonist... probably because he has none from the source material. Galge is all about the ...

    There is a deeper story
    I've read the negative reviews, and I just think this anime is not for everyone. I am the type of person who loves in depth stories and the like and I like this show. It might just be the soundtrack though. Either way, I would recommend this show to people who like to pass the time watching slow plot development.

    Mix Feeling about this
    I don't know if I like it or hate it. It is very confusing since I only learn very little about this anime. I understand that there was a game around this but I don't understand the plot from Episode 1. Watching Episode 1 causing me to become even more confuse. Facing witches while being stuck in the dream world saying he is just dreaming making this anime going down faster then I could say 18if

    Graphics over Gameplay
    At the time of this review, I've just finished the first episode of the series. Starting with the negatives of the show, let's talk about characters. When characters are introduced, there isn't a whole lot of information established about them. The protagonist is jaded and flavourless and the supporting characters are... hard to describe. There's a cat person who claims to be a scientist studying ...

    I couldn't stand this anime.
    1. I tried playing the game, but it was a trashy version of another game. I don't know which came first, but the colors and entertainment of the game were very very dull. I installed it within 20 minutes.
    2. The main character looks nowhere near attractive, which makes me believe that the studio ruined the art a bit.
    3. Has something to do with 2, the quality reminds me of some of the more ...

    A Boring Nightmare You Want to Wake Up From
    The first episode of 18if is an absolute misfire of a show.

    There's a good way to handle the "randomness" of dreams. The movie Paprika handles this expertly. Even though much of it is dreamlike, it establishes characters, tells you what's at stake, and gives you, the viewer, an anchor to be able to follow what's going through.

    18if does the opposite of all these things.

    It took the ...

    A plodding and unrelatable story
    This show makes a terrible first impression, spending its precious first few minutes dwelling on a selfish and irredeemably unlikable antagonist. When the protagonist is finally revealed, he is so utterly without personality or anything grounding him in reality that it's hard to continue paying attention.

    It may get better, and honestly I tried to watch more, but I could not finish the first ...

    this is a horrible anime
    this is a stupid anime that i fell asleep on it. the characters are odd and not in a good way and it just was too stupid to exists. there no story-line and you dont even get characters names until almost the end.the witches have no meaning to the story because their explanation it shallow and easily can side step
