The Winter 2010 Season has arrived at last with a multitude of new series to watch!
Yumekui Merry is about a high school student who has the ability to see the “color” of other people’s dreams. He encounters Merry who is originally from the “Dream World” and is later attacked by a Nightmare attempting to take over his body in order to enter the “Real World”.
The premise is quite interesting since dreams are a fascinating topic by itself. The way the first episode was presented actually made the series more intriguing than I expected it to be and hopefully it stays that way to the end. My only worry is that it’ll end up being an almost episodic nightmare-battling show, but now I doubt that will happen.
The animation is pretty good with the battle between Merry and the Nightmare being the highlight. I also love the foggy effects used to differentiate between the dream world and when it intersects with reality.
This should be a solid series to look forward to this season.
