So many girls this week…
Week number two of new anime! So exciting to see what everyone likes so far. But for me I look forward to more Yumekui Merry! Just can’t get enough of her she is so damn cute, but I don’t want to call this a moe show as all the designs are really interesting to see. Not much going on this week for me at least but was great reading all the top ten lists from the others! Great number one shows.
This week in Yumekui Merry, the plot introduces more new characters, well mostly girls and an odd elf boy/girl I can’t tell, I shall call it a Kebler elf! But I saw no cookies… The rest of the episode shows off a villain, a strange long redhead girl named Chizuru who doesn’t seem to be all there in her head anyway. She gives off a creepy vibes and we also learn more about Yumi, another student and her friendship with Serio aka elf-boy from her dreams.
With this spoon I shall take over the Universe! Thanks Bunmei for spoon powers.
Note to self, don’t eat cookies from a creepy elf.
Merry wakes up at Isana’s house and spends the night on their insistence. She also gets to have a chat with Yumeji as she explains what is really going on. Merry explains John Doe is one of four dream demons she has ran into since she woke up in an unknown place. Now, I like my idea of him being Spawn but fine Merry wins. She then tugs his arm demanding for him to send her back; however, he is unable to do so and she gets depressed until Isana brings out some doughnuts to cheer everyone up.
Mmmm anime food looks so damn good! *drool* and Merry inhales them.
Merry leaves the house in the dead of the night in order to do her own thing. Next day Yumeji and the others go to school and meet the creepy Chizuru. Never trust the quiet girls! They are very sneaky than others. As the day ends Yumi wanders home till she triggers a random encounter in her own dream land. She sees her elf friend get killed in front of her. Yumi then, walks off after her dream with a dazed look in her eyes. We can only guess when Sergio died she lost a part of her or simply she has been turned into a vessel for the demon who was after her.
“Is she on drugs?! Ask her if we can get some of that….”
OH DAMN! We are so screwed!
“No it’s cool, I got this, just stand there.”
Someone just got deleted! Noooooooooooo!
“Hmmm what was I doing again? Oh yeah, pretending to be Minori from Toradora.”
Like I could leave this out! Bath time. Woooooo!
Yeah, I make the same face for off brand…
Merry’s Bleeeehhhhh face is damn cute.
Lelouch you are not! Stop it!
This was definitely not as fast paced as the first episode but not bad either. First half was very story-filled, which was great! Nice to see what John Doe and Serio really are. The idea of dream demons works for me and how there are various kinds too. I had my doubts about Serio because when I first saw him and heard he made a contract with Yumi I was like yeah this is probably an evil one. Because after he was killed off Yumi’s eyes went all glass like, so I wonder if she lost her “soul” after Saori was killed or it was all because of that other demon whose voice we only heard.
The rest of the episode wasn’t so bad either they did throw a few new characters at us, that Chizuru screams evil just based on her blank looks. Then again she could have lost her body to a demon much like Yumi, I did remember seeing her in the ending of the first episode so maybe she was taken over. While watching Merry’s story, it is so similar to Celty from Durarara! Well not that this is an original idea, not knowing who they are or what they are until someone tells them.
The best thing about this episode was all the fantastic music, really great job! There was a section near the first half that was so much like Durarara style in music, really creepy and upbeat during the fun moments. And of course the doughnuts made me go Cuteeeeeooooo!! Merry has some great expressions.
Next week, more new characters and demons! More dream world fun and creepy bad guys talking to little kids. I guess Merry will eventually jump into other people’s dreams and save people, by kicking demon ass!
Thanks for reading, see you!
