Yumekui Merry – 08

Fun house of evil!

Hopefully this week’s episode gives back our fun and happy Merry, rather than the depressed and sad version we had to sit through last week. Another week another new dream demon to fight! Can’t wait to see what we get this time.

Plot this time follows Yumeji headed to a local doctor to check out his ankle, Merry acts as his escort until she gets seriously distracted by doughnuts. Yumeji meets up with Yui and she lets Engi talk to him, until Merry and Engi sort of team up to take on the new cackling demon.

Isana-“What’s that? You are building a Harem?!”

Merry-“…I must have this hybrid of animal and doughnut…”

Merry gets her wish and gives us Hidamari Sketch face.

Merry gets her doughnut on as Yumeji leaves her alone for visiting the old doctor and gets checked out. Yumeji gets to meet Yui in lieu of some tea and her oddball family! J.C. Staff loves their crazy doctors but he is no frog face. Yui reveals her secret to Yumeji and lets Engi talk through her about her plans.

Felt bad for Engi’s sister here! Hercules is damn freaky with that smile!

This was a touching scene, cool how they show Engi all ghost like.

Sorry, Frog face doctor from Index has you beat!

Yui’s entrance was so CUTE!

Got her Game Face ON!

After Yumeji’s full discussion with Yui and Engi about their motives, he returns to get Merry from the doughnut shop, where we see some familiar guys from the beach episode. One of them has a demon and everyone is thrown into his circus-style dream world. I really liked the design of this week’s demon, very comical character too.  Engi also pops up in the dream with Merry and the two of them team up for now. Why not! Engi isn’t really all that bad, I like her.

Monster Rancher, anyone?

Heroic stance, check.

Merry “OH YEAH? I CAN DO THAT TOO….Oh…you win…”

Engi- “Why did it have to be clowns?! I HATE CLOWNS!”


Extra Dreams!

Merry-“This glass won’t stop until all of those doughnuts are in my mouth!”

Merry has found a new hat to go on top of her other hat….

Old man gotcha in the sleeper hold!

Creepy lighting, RUN ISANA RUNN!!!

End Thoughts:

Well this week wasn’t that exciting compared to last beach filled episode; the big thing for me was finally seeing Merry back to her usual adorable self again! Sad Merry is just too damn depressing. Also its apparent that Yui is slowly becoming a main role, which is nice; I assume Engi wants to assist Merry to find a way back to her own world. That is if Merry is actually sending them home, a cool twist would be something like Merry actually sending them to Hercules without realizing what she was doing.

I still think Merry was somehow connected to Hercules; something about her keychain makes me think she controls who and what comes through the dream world. I kind of figured, one of the random guys that hit on Saya had something going inside them, I was waiting on them to hit on Merry, she probably would have no idea what they wanted.

The last few bits with that new circus themed dream was not that amazing but very a cool set up, mostly because I loved that crazy demon. Even though it looks like an easy character design, so I can’t wait to see it actually fighting! However, I bet that demon is super easy to beat; I mean it’s going to be two on one next time.


Disturbed dreams? Sounds like a CD title!

Next week Merry and Engi team up!? But will they be able to become friends? I keep waiting for Yumeji to transform into Chaser that would totally be epic! Come on J.C. Staff make it happen already!



Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    next ep will be quite a shocker. it will reveal a dark secret on why people have dream loss….

    I miss the gags about the birds for merry. the manga showed a couple of funny times where the birds peck or screech at merry.

    this ep was confusing. yeah, it was.

    Does that teacher kinda creep you out? he’s a bit…pedophiley

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yepp! I think he has a dream demon inside him, and the light effects around him during the whole “interview” scene was a bit creepy. Not to mention he was asking the students about their goals and dreams, that and next episode looks to be revealing to the teacher.

      I forgot to add that in my final thoughts hahah creepy teacher is bad!

      • Dan-go says:

        I think he’s something more than that…maybe the lighthouse demon? i mean it would be a fail plot if he inhabitted some randomly introduced character. Thing is he still has personality, unlike the other possessed people…so i have no idea

        • Foshizzel says:

          Yeah I can see them spinning that with the teacher being the main demon himself, I was told things get serious in the next few episodes.

          Course there is only five more episodes to go, hopefully all of them are great.

    Enough build up, get to the killing!

    I’m bloodthirsty this week.

    Ahhh… just to spoil a little…

    But the clown don’t go down easy actually. ^^”

    Oh, and Yui is becoming my second fav character after Merry! 😀

    • Foshizzel says:

      Ohhhhh? Well that’s good! Hopefully they put up a great fight for both Merry and Engi!

      True Yui is getting there slowly, I like Isana and Merry so far.
