Not bad,pacing was a little slow not quite as good as the first episode opening,but still heading in a good direction and it was nice and emotional to see merry interacting with yumeji's family and once again the music was excellent ranging from sad to cheerful moments.:D

Again a pretty good episode and with some nice developments for the coming episodes.
Isana came over allot better this episode and in there home she seems to be the only one with responsibility yet she doesn't strike as a strict person.
The father also seemed very laid back.
And it was al very relaxing.
I felt sorry for the girl that got caught in the dream world tho i wonder what will happen to her.
And what is with that transfer student it's clear she has something to do with this the question is what.
This episode i will say nothing else than words of praise because am happy seeing that the show won't be wasting all it's time showing us Merry having fun with the others in the house until the last two episodes but it will actually focus on the plot and keep the dark atmosphere going threw the whole show.
Also it seems there are a lot more things coming from the dream world than just the cats.
The cute scenes with the donuts and staff where even more enjoyable because the episode wasn't full with just that. Hope it will keep going this way and not just make Merry go back and then mostly concentrate on her being moe with the protagonist.
There was some good artwork too. Especially the surrounding environment at moments was beautifully drawn.
Quite the episode. Dream demons are a clear cut villain but it seems like there's another group at work here. Perhaps of the human kind. Some of these characters seems like they have some pretty evil looking faces too, like Isana's father and the teacher. They both had some very devious looking expressions in some scenes.
I like this kinda dark atmoshphere in this show the most, i guess. But man, this was boring, or maybe i was tired cauze i've almost fallen asleep, and this doesn't happen to me often while watching anime.
Gotta add that Merry's seiyuu does some really good work, i like her voice.
The dark and mysterious atmosphere only made the cutesy scenes more precious, I say. And I can say those dream worlds are really trippy.
We're discovering more about the main characters, good good. I'm actually pretty glad Merry left the house so we can avoid freeloader heaven. Mm, the dad must be related to all of this somehow, seeing how he seems to be so "relaxed" and just look at that badass scar!
And looking at one of the scenes of the teacher, I do think he's related somehow too. He seemed to have a really sinister smile back there.
I like where the show's headed now. I hope it keeps it up!
If the first episode didn't suit your taste, this episode had to have gotten it! The animation is so beautifully displayed! The story is hitting a high development stage! There's just so much to say that all I will bother to say is I am loving every bit of this series and hoping to see some new stuff from J.C Staff! Don't mess this one up, you've got me where you want me! Trust me! Truly looking forward to the next!
Oh, this was surprisingly good. For such a generic seeming show, the characters felt alive and interesting, the plot became intriguing and the art is stunning. It really feel like the creators care for plot and characters instead of asking: “what do the otakus want?”
So, beings from the dream world are trying to go to the real world. Interesting idea. But I hope that will develop this topic because there are plenty of unknowns. I hope that John Doe will appear again.
Merry eating donuts was so cute^^
Am I going crazy or did the little purple-haired girl in next week's preview look a lot like a slightly older Rika Furude? Even the -- I presume -- dream demon hanging onto her looks like a demented Hanyuu!
So far so good. The cliches are only part of the introduction, nothing really that irritating. It was a little slow yes, but that's only to loosen up the plot.

My thoughts exactly. The teacher gave out some suspicious vibes when he looked at the transfer student, and it's obvious that the transfer student is being possessed by a dream demon, and she probably was the one that killed Serio. Even Yumeji was acting strange around her.

How the hell could this possibly remind someone of Elfen Lied?
That poor elf guy, Serio, sure got it bad this episode. Looks like someone, or someones are jacking humans from their dream partners. I'm still wondering where Merry and Yumeji fit into this. It feels very unstructured and meandering right now. But at least I can see the pieces coming together somewhat.
