Sweet Dreams is an upcoming fantasy adventure magical girl film trilogy created by Vanilla Wafer. Up until May 2010, Sweet Dreams was well known as Dream Stars. The fanime is about 6th grader Rini Hanazono who opens a closet door in her basement to find a largely populated world of dreams.


Rini Hanazono, a 11 year old 6th grade student, is playing hide and seek with her younger sister. While in the basement, she opens a closet door, thinking her sister was hiding in there. When she opens the door, she enters a large world of dreams. She meets a kindhearted 14 year old cat boy named Takuto, and they quickly become best friends. She begins to visit him everyday. One day as they walk around they come across a door to another world. This world is the complete opposite of the dream world - it is the nightmare world. It was locked to keep the nightmares from coming true, but someone has unlocked it and all the nightmares kept inside fly out of both dimensions and into the real world! Takuto is mistaken for opening the door (when he was really trying to close it), and is exiled from the Dream World and ends up having to live with Rini and help her destroy the Nightmare Demons. To make matters worse, two Dream children named Esfir and He-Ran plan to separate Rini and Takuto and take all the credit of defeating Nightmare Demons to themselves!


Rini Hanazono

age: 11

Rini is a young 6th grade student and is the main female protagonist. She is bashful, gentle, sweet and honest and is Takuto's best friend. She is cautious and a bit frightful of her own power, and she often spaces out and loses a nightmare demon. She loves flowers, and takes care of her school's garden. She always tears up if she sees a dead garden. Rini seems somewhat lonely because no one else likes to take care of flowers - something she can relate to Takuto with, who is lonely as well. Rini has a younger sister named Chii. She has short blonde hair and her eyes are pink. Her transformation colors are pink and white. Her most powerful element is grass. She either uses a flower-tipped sword in battle or uses her own strength. Her Dream pendant is a rainbow colored flower, an obvious reference to Pokemon.


age: 14

Takuto is a catboy from the Dream World and the main male protagonist. He is kindhearted, loving and like Rini, quite bashful, but he can be serious when he needs too. Takuto always puts others before himself. He is never afraid to show his emotions - he isn't afraid to cry in any situation. He is Rini's best friend and secretly has a crush on her, but he's afraid that she doesn't love him back. He loves Rini because of how sweet and kind she is, and how cute she is and that she is his first friend in such a long time and he doesn't want to lose her. Takuto is able to turn into a kitten, but possible due to being primarily a swordsman, he hasn't mastered his magic - he's unable to hide his cat ears (something he really wishes he could do) and whenever he gets extremely nervous or excited his tail can randomly appear on and off. He has blue hair and his eyes are cyan and his transformation colors are blue, white, and black. His most powerful element is steel. He mainly uses swords in battle, but he can use his own bare strength to take down Nightmare Demons. His Dream pendant is a pawprint.
