The story of Leo and his magical gun.
Hello again, readers! Another episode of Yumekui Merry to get through; hopefully this would give us some action. Spring is starting and so will come brand new shows! So, prepare for the first few first impressions to come soon. Well, let’s dive right into this review then for episode twelve!
Plot this week takes us back with Isana passing out and Mistilteinn letting everyone go. So, they meet up with Leo afterwards and learn more about his past and the red gun Chizuru has on her. Afterwards they prepare a trap for Mistilteinn and begin to fight inside Yui’s dream world.
Yumeji- “Whoa, can I join the slumber party?” Chizuru-“Back off, Isana is mine!”
Mistilteinn listens to techno and brings her own glowsticks.
So, the new plan is setup by Leon and Chizuru! They plan on using Leon’s special gun that Chizuru has been holding on to; I guess it can do some heavy damage. This special gun uses the agony from dream demons that Mistilteinn has killed off using them as ammo. The first goal was to use Isana’s demon for the final round in the gun; however, plans get shifted to Yui and Engi wanting to fight Mistlteinn in her dream world.
Cool place you have here, Chizuru, it’s very green and dark.
Engi- “I have to tag team with Merry?” Merry-“Wait, what? I was so not paying attention”
Extreme close up!
Required stomach shot of the week.
The next day after everyone takes their test, yes even during battle they are good students! Ryouta keeps a watch on them, which I thought were quite funny with all those glares. Afterwards, Isana invites Ryouta over to the café for coffee; once he arrives Yui grabs his arm and pulls him into her dream world with Isana.
I kept thinking about the test episode in Soul eater during this.
So many happy faces! Or they are laughing at me?
Ryouta- “OH, SNAP SON! YOU ARE SO DEAD!”
Heroic-stance pose completed!
Mistltienn is so happy to have some time to play tag with her new friends.
The fight inside Yui’s head begins with Engi and Merry working somewhat together to fight Mistltienn. Well if you can call what they actually did a fight. And of course Mistltienn overpowers the girls without breaking a sweat. Before Engi thinks she can win, she takes a direct hit from Mistltienn’s plant, which takes her out of the fight. Damn it, Engi! You are supposed to be awesome!
Mistltienn had her nails done before fighting.
The princess has been captured!
Engi so made some air plane sound effects while flying.
Red screen gave me some Gurren Lagann flashbacks.
After Engi falls, Merry jumps up to get some revenge for her friend but only to be thrown to the side and taken out of the fight. However, Yumeji stands up and grabs one of Engi’s swords and does a slow walk to Mistltienn and passes Ryouta! Why didn’t he just take the teacher out of the battle?! The episode ends with Yumeji giving a loud heroic scream at Mistltienn. Yes, really scary there bro!
You have failed me, Merry! WHY!!
This was a damn cool screenshot; love the effects.
Nomnom rice it’s so good.
Isana giving us all the I-need-a-hug look.
I will catch you, Merry!
Your dad can’t be this GAR!
So, another boring episode this week, with mostly chatter happening and characters giving each other a few glares. Although it was nice to finally get a bit more background on Leon’s character, he looks interesting but he hasn’t really done a whole lot. You can also tell he is very close to Chizuru as he was happy that she got to make some friends at least. Also tells you he has a huge history with Mistltienn, wonder how old some of these Dream demons are?!
The other thing about this episode that was funny to me was the whole test taking scene; hahaha, you wouldn’t see this happening in Bleach! They would just leave and be all, screw testing! We got hollows to kill. Then again, they don’t really go too far from the real world; I wanted to see Leon use his gun! But they can’t really waste the bullets this early. I also figured the ammo was just from the humans, but I guess it’s from the humans and demons.
Now for the actual fight with Engi, Merry and Mistltienn. I was not really happy with how things broke down during all of that. You would think Engi would at least land a few hits on her; maybe she needs more training? I so wanted Merry to get all badass again and knock Mistltienn’s lights out! Maybe Yumeji will do something? I keep hearing a few random things on other blogs about his role, but I kind of want to wait and see for myself.
Sure, it isn’t Bond? James Bond?
Next week is the final episode! What will happen?! Will Yumeji become all GAR and kick Mistltienn into next season? I sure hope we get something amazing for the final episode. Also, fingers crossed for another season, well maybe depending on how things “end”.
