Akumu-chan 2014 SP Review

Title: Akumu-chan Special
AKA: Nightmare-chan Special
Genre: Fantasy, Comedy
Broadcast date: 2014-May-02
Cast: Kitagawa Keiko, Gackt, Yuka, Kimura Manatsu, Hamada Mari and Momoiro Clover Z.

After the sacrifice and death if Shiki Takashi (Gackt), Mutoi Ayami (Kitagawa Keiko) and Koto Yuiko (Kimura Manatsu) are not bothered by anybody anymore - that is until Yuiko by accident looks into a girl’s unconsciousness.
At the annual "Difference in Age Cultural Exchange" Yuiko is reluctantly chosen as one of the representatives from the class, and arriving at the High School she looks into the eyes of the Student Council President. By that she has noticed her unconsciousness, and even has a prophetic dream about her: she is hurting her classmates, and even gets killed by Ayami’s Dream Prince. Scared by her nightmare she turns to Ayami-sensei, who unwillingly is dragged into the things again. But for some reason the nurse Hirashima Kotoha (Yuka) is involved in the dreams. How are things connected?

I remember Akumu-chan as one of my favorite j-dramas because of the story and the way the characters are portrayed. Also this is one of the few dramas that made me complete absorbed at the end.
So is the special good? Honestly, I thought it was pretty dull. I like Momoiro Clover Z, but I felt it was too much of an idol special. The entire thing had a bit of “lala” acting to it. Lol, now you are wondering why the rating is so high? It is so simple you are not going to believe it: Kitagawa Keiko. Seriously her acting is amazing here, and she seriously uses everything and pulls everyone with her, making everything brilliant.
The story in all was okay, and the theme was great too, so yeah I laughed and enjoyed it a lot!

☆☆☆½ / 3½ out of 5 stars
