The synopsis seemed interesting. But it wasn't as interesting as I had hoped.

Art, Animation and Character Design
The art seemed above average and with rich, vibrant colors. The animation wasn't bad either. As for character designs, they were actually refreshingly different. I mean, they weren't radically different by any stretch of the imagination, but small things like the thicker eyebrows, or the slightly thicker black outline around the eyes, or the lighter shades of shadows in the artwork.

Music
Okay, the OP wasn't "annoying", but it was really.... annoying. The voice was super high-pitched and too "happy". Don't get me wrong, I'm no dark, brooding, moody type of guy. Just hearing the same "type" of OPs is annoying. Sorry, I think I just went off a bit. Anyhow, to say the least, it wasn't that great. The music throughout the rest of the anime wasn't anything of interest but at least it wasn't annoying.

Series and Episode Story
There was a few laughs here and there and some ecchi moments.... not a lot. The plot itself wasn't really anything of interest. Actually, it doesn't take off until about mid-way through the series and even then, the plot was barely interesting. There was a gripe I had. After a while, the whole "mone" line said by.... erm, "Mone" got annoying. What I didn't like about it was how everyone could understand what she was saying, yet our protagonist (Tomokazu), couldn't. For some reason, that bugged the crap out of me. As well, I didn't particularly cared for the whole cheesy power ranger-like transformations. However, the whole concept of a dangerous dream world was an interesting plot.... if it was done better.

Overall, it narrowly held my interest. The concept was good, but the story telling part didn't live up to it.

Ok I watched all of this.

Honestly, it has a nice OP, and the drawings are very cute.

But that's about it. It's got a little plot that when it finally reveals (In the 3rd disk) was very lame. This would've done better has a hentai IMHO. It was interesting to watch up to episode 8 but afterwards, it was crap.

So I'll leave it a watch, it made me laugh but that's about it.
