18if is an anime series that first aired in Japan in July 2017, based on a mobile game called 18: Kimi to Tsunagaru Puzzle. The show follows the adventures of a young man named Haruto Tsukishiro, who finds himself trapped in a strange dream world known as the Witch's House. With the help of his companion, a cat named Lily, Haruto must explore the different dream worlds in order to figure out how to escape.

Haruto's journey begins when he wakes up in a hospital room with no memory of how he got there. He soon discovers that he is able to enter the dreams of other people, and is drawn into a world of magic and monsters. Each episode features a different dream world, with its own unique rules and challenges. Haruto must navigate through these worlds, facing off against powerful enemies and solving puzzles in order to progress.

Along the way, Haruto teams up with a diverse cast of characters, including a witch named Kanzaki and a scientist named Katsumi Kanzaki. Kanzaki gives Haruto advice and guidance as he travels through the dream worlds, while Katsumi provides technical support and information about the dream world phenomenon.

The show's visuals are stunning, with vibrant and imaginative designs for each of the dream worlds. The animation is smooth and fluid, with dynamic camera angles and a sense of momentum that keeps the action moving at a brisk pace. The soundtrack is equally impressive, with a mix of electronic and orchestral music that enhances the show's dreamlike atmosphere.

The show's themes explore the power of dreams and the subconscious mind, as well as the importance of facing one's inner demons. Each dream world is a reflection of the dreamer's psyche, and Haruto must help them confront their fears and overcome their obstacles in order to escape. This theme of self-discovery and personal growth is woven throughout each episode, giving the show a sense of depth and meaning beyond its action-packed adventure.

The voice acting is top-notch, with J. Michael Tatum providing a nuanced and sympathetic performance as Haruto. Brina Palencia shines as Kanzaki, injecting the character with sass and wit. Alexis Tipton brings a sense of intelligence and determination to Katsumi, making her a valuable and engaging ally for Haruto.

Overall, 18if is a captivating and visually stunning anime series that explores the power of dreams and the human psyche. Its imaginative world-building and diverse cast of characters make it a must-watch for fans of fantasy and adventure.
