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

I'm liking the development in this episode, but the pacing was a bit slow. Series is looking pretty good so far.

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.

I loved it. Merry is so awesome. I feel really absorbed by the dialogue and the dream visuals are really cool. Going to look forward to this show the most this season.

I'm sure it wasn't intended, but when Yumejis father said "rule", it remembered me Panty & Stocking xD

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.

Slow episode this time around, but interesting nonetheless. Really loving Merry as a characters. Of course she'll accept his help after she knows he can predict dreams.

Also Merry really likes her donuts doesn't she? =P

Long wait till the next episode! =(

This was another interesting episode especially since one other "vessel" lost her companion. It seems like dreams and reality are more intertwined than they think.

So far the story has an interesting premise, so it seems that this will turn out to bee good. I'll be looking forward to new episodes each week.

At first i thought that merry is going to be the transfer student for some reason. Anyone else thought about this as well ?:D


Also, the teacher and father seem to suspicious.. way TOO RELAXED!

I enjoyed the episode but nothing really happened at all. It took 20 minutes and all we got was an explanation of vessels. Oh, and some donuts.

I felt bad for Serio but i didn't really care since the two of them got a 4 minutes total.

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.

It wasn't too bad, and I feel like they've adequately explained how the whole vessel concept works. I'll still have to wait until the end until I can make a conclusive decision.

a lot of sulking, and other than Merry's face expression when seeing/eating food, pretty much a boring ep

and lmao @ the preview...that dream demon is a huge breasted cow....how "unexpected" :))

I didn't think it was that boring, I really like the music and the characters, and I feel like the story is going at a nice pace, but I like anime that have a slower pace.

Thank god this episode answered all my confusions xDD Now it piles up because of the father, the teacher, the girl w/ serio and the transfer student... They seem to have important role in the plot xDD

Yumeji will be a great help since he can predict dreams. His prediction isn't that accurate since Isana dreamed about chili and wasabi when Yumeji predicted about sweet things xDD

15 times with the "accident peek"... Now I hate Yumeji *envy* xDDD

As much as the negative opinions go for this episode, I found its little details a great progress on many fronts. Such as Isana's cute side shows more of her character. Her sneaking up on Yumeji's conversation with Merry was another cute side as well as reply to Yumeji's accusation her getting fat after eating donuts. Particularly liked the bath fan service since it was nicely censored but enough to see the bodies shape and a little of the breast size of Isana. Find Isana's father bad ass old school Yakuza.

Another front was Merry, which showed a nice different warped world. Merry was also shown crying quite a few times. Hope Yumeji quenches it down. Also cute part shown of Merry at her reaction to donuts showed more of her character with a cute face such as in the spoiler
Of course my favorite cute face of Merry.

Now it brings me the most crucial parts that of Yumi and Serio. Now, Yumi herself has a cute face. Serio on the other hand is a little bit of a creepy Dream Demon of flowers. Do wonder what was his point to even coexist with Yumi? Strange scene really with those scissors that triggered a automatic in for Yumi into that strange world. In the end it was too just terrible how Yumi was bound but the sick shit that even killed and shredded Serio in front of Yumi's eyes so much she got totally shocked at how Serio went into pieces. :( Really too bad for that sad part. Can't wait to see how Yumeji will save Merry despite verbally expressing wanting so and despite Merry's refusal of any help. Preview of episode says new loli coming up and another Dream Demon trying to consume her. Great episode with crucial small details.

This show is really surpassing my expectations...

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!

I actually enjoyed this, maybe it's 'cause it was slower than the first episode. I'll be sure to stick around to see where this is going.

Gracefully and masterfully crafted episode. I really love Yamauchi's world and the atmopshere he's creating. Hands down the best new series of the season after two episodes.

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?”

Really starting to like this show now. The first episode was kind of bizarre, but I really enjoyed this one. Merry could easily be my favorite character this season.

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^^

I think this episode was much better than the first. The opening of the show is one of the most interesting I've seen in a while.

I still think it's too early to tell if I'm going to like the show, but I think it has potential.

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.

Merry looks so cute with those pajamas and the way she looked at donuts was cute too. Wonder if that teacher is flirting with that aspiring.

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.
