Anime review: 18if

This anime, it’s a part of a project I don’t know and I don’t care. Anyways, it’s nice there is a different ED song each time. Can’t say I like the music tho… I don’t know much now. Just sounded interesting. Okay, let’s go to the review!

18if theme 3


Waking up in a strange bedroom in a dream world, teenager Haruto Tsukishiro finds a strange app on his phone. When he activates the program, an odd woman appears and tries to drag him to her realm. Luckily, a mysterious, white-haired girl severs their connection and helps him escape, revealing that the woman is a witch; however, their conversation is cut short. As Haruto enters the realm again, he meets an anthropomorphic, talking cat named Katsumi Kanzaki. While the witch’s minions pursue them, the white-haired girl opens a door for them to escape.18if theme 2

After their ordeal, Haruto describes their savior—which only he can see—and Katsumi, the leading authority on dream world research, realizes that she must be “Lily,” a being that resurfaces repeatedly across multiple dreamscapes. Hoping to leave the dream world through a blue door, they enter the witch’s realm once again. Finding themselves in peril, Lily reveals the truth to Haruto: witches suffer from “Sleeping Beauty Syndrome,” a coma-like sleep state induced by torment in their real world lives. Thus, they cannot wake until they are defeated in the dream world.

After finally defeating the witch and locating the blue door, Haruto and Katsumi say their farewells, promising to meet up in the real world. However, when Haruto exits through the door he awakens in the dream world bedroom once more. Seeking answers, Haruto and Katsumi try to uncover the mysteries of the witches, Lily, and Haruto’s own inability to leave the dream world.

Okay, one thing already to say, random. Wtf the story, it didn’t make sense random short stories going around and then the cliché and very soft ending. Okay yeah poor for Haruto in the end, but he didn’t regret anything. The story was inconsistent. I just only got the story at the last 2 episodes. So weird and all. There were many kinds of animation styles. Didn’t hate it, didn’t like it either. There was a hidden lifelesson in every episode, but it was very random. I give it a 3/10. This is because I got the story and the switch of art styles is something not many do. I give praise to that. The rest: wtf, so weird, don’t get it, stupid. That’s how I thought. I recommend it when you have your mind on 0.


Hope you enjoyed the review and see you next week
