Yumeria (ゆめりあ ?) is a Namco video game released for the PlayStation 2 and an anime series produced by Studio Deen.

Tomokazu Mikuri, the main character in the game and anime, turns 16 years old and has led a dull life without girls. On the night of his birthday, he dreams of a strange world in which he sees a young girl in a blue outfit fighting against an unknown enemy. Tomokazu has a strange, unknown power which seems to "power up" this girl, who has fallen into his arms. She uses this "power" to repel enemies, the alien race known as the Feydooms, who are attempting to break through the dream world and take over the real world.

Waking up, Tomokazu is amazed at his dream's realism, thinking of his strange power and the mysterious girl who fought off her enemies. Rolling over, he sees the girl from his dream, Mone, in bed next to him. Soon Tomokazu, his classmate Mizuki Agatsuma, Mone, Neneko, Nanase, and her sister Kuyou enter the dream world Moera to destroy the Feydooms and save the world.

Characters

Tomokazu Mikuri (三栗智和 Mikuri Tomokazu ?)
A helpless 16 year old pervert and average teenager with many friends, he is unknowingly the Destiny Transformer who is meant to change the world. He enjoys taking care of kids like Neneko and Mone. He is a pervert and unknowingly he shows it very much. Though he is kind, he is lazy and does not enjoy studying. His parents died at a young age, he lives with his guardian, Nanase. His fighting suit is black and dark red with a red gem embedded in the chest. He has a crush on Mizuki in the anime and doesn't like when Ishikari-sensei acts perverted toward her and Mone. His special attack is "Tomokazu Kick". Voiced by: Wataru Hatano (Japanese), Chris Patton (English)
Mone (モネ ?)
A small girl who Tomokazu first finds in Moera. She is only capable of saying, "Mone" or "Monene." She seems to be attached to Tomokazu. She is quite young, and her fanservice scenes focus on her pert butt. Her hair has a purplish tint, and her fighting suit is blue and white with an orange gem in the breast. In truth, she is the Priestess of Sleep, who has no real body. This means she is incredibly powerful in Moera. Her special attack is "Monemonemone". Voiced by: Moyu Arishima (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)
Mizuki Agatsuma (吾妻みづき Agatsuma Mizuki ?)
Tomokazu's childhood friend. She is also 16, kind and thoughtful, and is always there for her friends. She secretly loves Tomakazu. She is also very conservative about her body. She has long red hair, and her fighting suit is pink with a pink gem in the breast. Her special attack is "Spiral Power Flare". Voiced by: Masumi Asano (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
Nanase "Silk" Senjou (千条七瀬 Senjō Nanase ?)
Tomokazu's cousin and guardian. Ever since Tomokazu's parents died, they have been together as a family. She is an incredibly well-endowed graduate student, and despite their relationship, she enjoys putting Tomokazu's face in her expansive bust. She has long brown hair, and her fighting suit is green and black with a dark red gem in the breast. She appears to have feelings for Tomokazu when she asked him if she had a chance for his love. In Moera, she takes on the form of "Silk", a powerful warrior with extensive knowledge of Moera. She works for the Head Family and has been watching Tomokazu ever since he was little. Her special attack is "Hydro Punisher". Voiced by: Kikuko Inoue (Japanese), Nancy Novotny (English)
Kuyou Senjou (千条九葉 Senjō Kuyō ?)
Nanase's younger sister. She is 14 and has known Tomokazu since she was little, but she emigrated to America. She has sea green hair pulled into pigtails, and her fighting suit is yellow with a green gem in the breast. She calls Tomokazu "Tomo", and frequently calls him a pervert. She holds the Arrow of Destiny, a powerful technique made to destroy the Feydooms. She also starts many of her sentences with "Frankly". Her special attack is "Collider Bit". Voiced by: Sara Nakayama (Japanese), Jessica Boone (English)
Neneko (ねねこ ?)
A cat-loving junior detective, who considers everything a mystery. She calls Tomokazu "Darling", and herself, "Darling's wife". Like Mone, she often displays her behind to him. She wears a yellow cap that appears to conceal real cat ears, and her fighting suit is orange with a green gem in the breast. She owns a large mallet that weighs 756 kilograms. She has an annoying manner of speech, constantly using phrase such as "Really, it is!" and "Y'know!" She houses Neito inside her body. Her special attack is "Super Extreme Tornado Attack. So There". Whether or not she has real cat ears has yet to be confirmed, but they twitch when she is excited, and Tomokazu once imagined they were her "sensitive area". Voiced by: Tamaki Nakanishi (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

Extra: Neneko sings a very cute song in one episode. The lyrics are as follows: "Really it is! Really it is! It is, it is! *meow, meow* The mystery of delicious crockets you know? The crispy batter's a mystery it is, the mystery of potatoes! Fresh from the oven, really!" [her kitten sings along].

Neito (ネイト ?)
The reverse re-incarnating women from the future. She lives in Neneko's body and comes out when Neneko sleeps. In her future, the world has been destroyed by the Feydooms, so she goes back in time to help Tomokazu. Voiced by: Mariko Suzuki (Japanese), Tiffany Salinas (English)
Koneko (コネコ ?)
Neneko's cat, who only appears in the anime. She seems to understand humans. She only says "nono". She originally did not trust Neito. She eventually is able to go to Moera. Voiced by: Misato Fukuen (Japanese), Jessica Boone (English)
Megumi Saitou (斎藤メグミ Saitō Megumi ?)
A friend of Tomokazu and Mizuki. She is one of Tomokazu's childhood friends. She is a teen idol, who dresses up in a bunny costume to appease perverts and nerds. Voiced by: Kaori Tanaka (Japanese), Tiffany Salinas (English)
Ishikari-Sensei (石狩先生 ?)
Teacher of Tomokazu's class. He is kind to all his students, except Tomokazu, whom he holds a grudge against, though Tomokazu said he used to be kind. He has a heavy lolita fetish, which he openly admits to. As a result, he appears even more of a pervert than Tomokazu. Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (Japanese), John Gremillion (English)
Tomoko Mikuri
Tomokazu's mother. She was the Destiny Transformer sixteen years ago, but was unable to destroy the Feydooms. She sacrificed her life to slow down the Feydooms, and passed on her power to Tomokazu at birth. Voiced by: Yuko Shioyama (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)
Tomokazu's Father
He brings Tomokazu to the Head of the Family, who he works for in medium power. He is just as lazy as Tomokazu and makes bad Katsudon.
Head of the Family
As his name states, he runs operations in the family, and wants Tomokazu to listen to him, which he doesn't. Voiced by: Masashi Hirose (Japanese), Chris Ayres (English)

Anime culture

  • In Episode 1 of the anime, when Tomokazu encounters Mone for the first time, one of his lines is subtitled as "What is this light? Some kind of new Hilbert Effect!?". This is an obvious reference to the Hilbert Effect in the Xenosaga series, also by Namco.
    1. WadaDon from Taiko no Tatsujin (another Namco product) appears as an answering machine[1].
  • Mizuki makes a reference to Sailor Moon by quoting about when she was little she used to watch that show with the pretty soldiers[2]. (Sailor Moon's title in Japanese is "Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon", with the words "Bishōjo Senshi" literally meaning "pretty girl soldier".)
  • In episode 4, two characters cosplay as characters from the dungeon-hack RPG series "The Tower of Druaga". Neneko cosplays as the series' hero, Gilgamesh (or Gil for short), while Mone cosplays as series heroine Kai.
  • Neneko's hat is an unlockable item for the Character Creation mode in Soul Calibur III.
  • All five girls were released as gashapon figures in Yujin's "Namco Girls" collection.
  • Tomokazu's special attack "Tomokazu Kick" could be a reference to the "Inazuma Kick" special attack from Gunbuster.
  • Neneko is seen on one of the paintjobs of the Soldat Raggio in Ridge Racer 7.
  • Neneko's Hammer is an inversion of the last two digits of Will's 765 kg Hammer from Tales of Legendia also by Namco.
  • The mayor from the Harvest Moon series makes an appearance as a event promoter.
  • A flashback contains a mask from the Kamen Rider Black series.

  1. ^ In this episode, Nanase leaves a message that is picked up by a rather odd answering machine. Notice how it looks extremely similar to WadaDon.
  2. ^ This line is spoken in episode four. There are many other similarities to Sailor Moon.
