Densetsu Takamagahara Dream Saga
One day Yuuki sees
something floating down from the sky. She catches it: a small red
comma-shaped object. Just then her good friend (and secret crush)
Takaomi walks up, so she hides it away in a pocket. Suddenly,
whenever Yuuki nears a mirror a beautiful girl appears in it!
Yuuki figures out that this is because of the strange red object.
That night the girl gives Yuuki a magic hand mirror and tells her
about another world, Takamagahara. Yuuki, feeling very tired,
decides to snooze for a bit. The girl tries to warn her against
falling asleep, but it is too late....
As soon as Yuuki falls
asleep she awakes in a strange desert. A group of men approach and
call to a Takaomi. Could it be the Takaomi she knows? But the
young man who steps forward is much older than her friend. Yuuki
is a little disappointed, and then she becomes quite startled and
indignant when he tries to kiss her!
An emergency brings to
light that Yuuki is the legendary girl of this land. Takaomi
doesn't believe it. Unknown to Yuuki, what it means is that, along
with four others, she must use magical powers to rescue the Sun
When Yuuki wakes up the
next morning she can't help thinking about the Takaomi in her
dream. At school she sees her friend and wonders if he could be
the same person. Nachi, the tennis player with a crush on Takaomi,

Takamagahara dream, Yuuki and Takaomi come across a

just like Yuuki's, and it starts to glow. When his head covering
is pulled back he looks familiar to Yuuki. It's Souta in a
Yuuki finds out that her
"dreams" are not really dreams at all. When she awakens in the
morning, it's as if she hadn't slept at all. Each day she is tired
from her dream world escapades. She really is traveling to the land of the gods!
In more adventures in
Takamagahara she meets up with other forms of some of her other
classmates, each discovering they also have a special bead. There
is one big difference between her and them, however: in this world
they are all older than in the "real" world, but she's the same
age in both! By now Yuuki knows she really cares for Takaomi, but
his childhood friend, the Princess Kaya, has been kidnapped and
they have to search for her. Yuuki is sure Takaomi loves the
princess. Yuuki and her friends must find out what the beads are,
and what has been happening. The mysterious mark on Takaomi's
forehead and the fact that he may be of both worlds is
puzzling.... since he isn't one of the magical five, who is
fighting action, magical creatures, an evil "father", romance,
spells, friendship, and lots of humor make Dream Saga an enjoyable
and suspenseful series for everyone! Highly recommended!
