Yumekui Merry 13 – Dream Again [END]

Dream Again

What is thi–I don’t even…I just…UUUGGGHHHH. Alright, so Yumekui Merry has now ended and my, did it leave off in such a bad way. Which reminds me, I need to update my AnimePlanet.com account. So, for the first time I had hooked up my laptop to  my huge 50 inch widescreen T.V in the livinig room and I decided to watch the finale of this show. It looked great on the TV, btw. But the actual episode was all sorts of predictable and half-assed nonsense. Read the rest of this entry

Yumekui Merry 11 – Guardian of Dreams

Wow, haven’t posted anything for a while. Two main reasons are because of the earthquake and Tsunami that happened in Japan which obviously affected TV schedules, second reason was that I was in the university interview period, which is over now, so I thought now would be the time to start posting again. IN ANY CASE, WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE? The prelude episode tothe prelude episode to the end of the show. It had what it needed, progress, character interaction, a fight scene with the main baddie. So why did I feel rather unsatisfied by the end?

Yumekui Merry 09 – Dreams Disturbed

Dreams Disturbed

I honestly don’t know where this story is going, or what to think of this show right now. What also comes to mind is the irrelavance of the plot synopsis. I’ve seriously had one girl say to me that me that she isn’t going to watch the show because all the show is about is dreams with cats in them, and thought that it was a pretty retarded concept. The show isn’t like that at all. With wacky pacing, a LOT of foreshadowing going on and Chizuru’s ACTUAL involvement being this late in the show (even though she didn’t say a word this episode, AGAIN), I’m becoming pretty disappointed in this show. But in any case, it seems that we’re moving on towards an original anime ending. Read the rest of this entry

Yumekui Merry 08 – Dream Corridors

 

Dream Corridor

「夢回廊」 (Yume Kairō)
“Dream Corridor”

This episode was BOOORRINGG. Heck, even the beach episode before this was boring. It brought nothing new to the table. And the lack of Treesea this week makes me sad. Even at the end, where it seemed we were gonna get treated to nice co-op fight between Merry and Engi against that clown thingy. I haven’t been following the manga recently because Chizuru has interferred with the canon story a bit too much, though I’ll still read the manga at a later time for the sake of it. But I may as well go over a few things in the episode.

Yumekui Merry 06 – Dream Encounter

Dream Encounter

「夢邂逅(かいこう)」 (Yume Kaikō)
“Dream Encounter”

I’m not up to this point in the manga, so I can’t really do any comparing. But in any case, what I did see in the episodes was rather interesting and the episode basically tells us a few things such as who Phaoros is, about Dream Loss, and stuff. Also you might be interested to know that Sentai Filmworks has licensed the show.
