Warm and Fuzzy like Fruits Basket by hneline1 April 14, 2004 - 11:00 PM PDT

If you like Fruits Basket, you'll probably like Someday's Dreamers. This series continues to be warm and fuzzy with a gentle pacing and a plethora of imperfect characters who are nevertheless kindhearted. I love the sweetness in the animation style and the beautiful watercolors in the incidental art, such as for the commercial breaks. Yume is na´ve but not simpering. And the world of bureaucracy for magic is intriguing but not overwhelming.

In these episodes, 5 thru 8, Yume's summer apprenticeship continues with more characters being introduced or explored. She helps young Runa reconcile with her mom, Kera help the orphanage where he grew up, and Angela face an incompetent but idealistic mage in training. More hints are dropped about Oyamada's past, Chief Ginpun's powers and why Yume's mother was a legendary mage. I'm looking forward to seeing the next disc to see how the series concludes.
