Someday’s Dreamers


Genre: Fantasy/Slice of Life

Studio/Creator: JC Staff/Norie Yamada

Distributor: Sentai Filmworks

No. of Episodes: 12

Suggested Age: 7+

My Review: 8/10

Summary: Yume is a girl who moves to Tokyo from the suburbs to be taught by Masami Yamada, a trained wizard, in order to obtain a mage’s license.

Review: I know what you’re thinking after reading the summary: this sounds similar to Kiki’s Delivery Service.  Yes and no.  It’s the same scenario, just a more modern setting.  And yet it actually works, mostly because Yume actually gets to do elaborate magic.

The animation is great and I really liked the relaxed feel of the story.  There were no villains, no wacky adventures.  Just a pleasant story with nice pacing that was only slightly slow.

If you like Kiki’s Delivery Service, I highly recommend this series.

Sub/Dub: I only watched the original sub.

Music/Score: Very pleasant. The opening theme was beautiful.

Violence: (1/10) Just magic-based stuff.

Nudity: 0/10

Sexuality: 0/10

Religion: 0/10

Related Media: This is based on a manga that was originally published in the US by Tokyopop, but that company has folded.  There’s also a series called Someday’s Dreamers II: Sora, which has a similar setup.
