Wow, I believe this is the most I have written in one day. But so many new anime have come out today, I have to write about it or I will forget. Well, guess all that I need to do know is write.
Dream Eater Merry or Yumekui Merry is about, well actually I am not exactly sure yet what this anime is about. The description is rather cryptic and the first episode left many questions unanswered. Basically there is this guy who can see colors around people by making hand binoculars (as I call them), these colors tell people their dreams. Like literally their dreams, stuff they see as they sleep, dreams. And one day this girl falls on top of him after being pecked by a crow. And that is about all we know from the synopsis.
As for the anime episode, here are some things that stood out.
1) It is way darker of an anime than I thought it was going to be. Which is way cool.
2) The characters are interesting, Merry Nightmare looks like a loli witch but I am really not sure what she is. Yumeji Fujiwara has a weird ability and an even weirder dream. There is this mysterious bad guy from Yumeji’s dream that I am pretty positive is a large cat.
3) The whole anime is just mysterious. So many questions were not answered. Who is Merry Nightmare and why does she want to go to the dream world? What is this dream world? How can Yumeji see those colors? What exactly is this crazy show about?
4) The art is great, love Yumeji’s dream of a cat war and the world around him is dilapidated and there are fish bones in the sky, very interesting indeed.
5) The sound is great, both the opening and ending fit this anime well. Really sets the mysterious tone of the show.
Recommendation Level- (A) Can’t wait for more.
