From The Other Side of a Dream
Alex: I’d go as far as to say that Dreameater Merry is the most solid of everything that’s been premièred so far. Gosick is great, yes, but I can’t deny that Victorique does seem to have access to the script. Mahou Madoka is brilliant, but it goes overboard on the trippy action scenes sometimes. Level E is hillarious, but it’s not got a mixture of everything. I mean, this was a perfect example of how to tell an Episodic tale. The fact that even the seemingly meaningless fortune teller at the start of the episode was used to such extremes was well…brilliant scriptwriting. Obviously, Yumeji DID find Merry a little too easily, and Merry is still a little too tsundere in this episode towards Yumeji, but everything else was spot on.
The story itself was another random Dream World demon and a little girl, but it was well, cute and thought-provoking. It showed how the dream demon isn’t all bad, and was actually just lonely. It did a very good job of fleshing out the setting used, here. But next episode seems to be the challenge…it’s set in High School from the preview.
