Dream Walker is an anime that was written, directed, and created by Akira Jotaro who also created the anime VII, Dead Fairy Tale, and A Little Ghost Story.

The story is set in a fictional city named Yumekyo, where many weird rumors center around nighttime and dreams. The story is about a mysterious man known as the Dream Walker, who travels through peoples' dreams for an unknown reason and a boy who investigates who or what the Dream Walker is.


In Yumekyo, the seven ghost stories of the city all center around dreams at night and a mysterious man with no body; this man is known as the Dream Walker. A new student from Tokyo, Hiro Kamimaro, just transferred to Dorimu High School, the richest school in Yumekyo, and was curious about the rumors everyone kept talking about for the last two weeks he was there. One night when Hiro was coming home late, he had noticed a face with no body on his drive home and he had thought he was crazy or saw a ghost. After that sight, Hiro had a dream about the face and continued to have the same dream every night until he met the real Dream Walker. As the story continues, Hiro begins to investigate the Dream Walker and was forced into joining the Occult Investigation Club after a girl named Nami Saotome found out about what he was doing.


Main ProtagonistsEdit

Hiro KamimaroEdit

The heir to the Kamimaro Zaibatsu and a boy who had became bored with life until he saw the Dream Walker and began to investigate it.

He had investigated the Dream Walker to find out why he kept having dreams about the Dream Walker and why the Dream Walker keeps appearing before him. He is voiced by Mamoru Miyano.

Dream WalkerEdit

A ghost-like being who is just a floating head with hands and feet, with no body at all. He wears a top hat, cape that covers his body, silk gloves, and tuxedo shoes, but he is most recognized for his face, which is often seen without his body. He travels in dreams to find a reason for his existence, but fights nightmare monsters during his travels. He does not know why Hiro is the only one who can come into other peoples' dreams other than him and had investigated him out of curiousity. He does not know his real name so he had taken the name Dream Walker. He is voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa.
