Ep1: John Doe (Chaser): “The realm of dreams and the realm of reality. What will start? What will change? And what will come to a change in these two worlds? Whatever happens, it’s definitely worth chasing.” *Chaser laconically laughs*
Ep2: Akiyanagi (the poet): “Hmmm…The new girl in class, who’s looks are elite, might just reveal a heart that is sweet.”
Ep8: Dream Eater Merry: “If there’s no one but dream demons, who’s going to make all the donuts for me! Because there’s no way I’m going to live in a world with no donuts!”
Ep9: One-Eyed DD:”The two of us are not so different, really. We’re both parasites…living off are human vessels. The Strength to move forward… The Courage to weave feelings… The Hope to connect with others… The Passion to move mountains…and the Power to accomplish anything…it’s the Strongest and Brightest Place in the Human Heart…but it’s also a Place where you can get easily Lost. Dream Demons Love to Live There. *After finishing his speech… he, One-Eyed DD, with his long and twisting tongue, begins eerily to lick his lips.*
Ep11: *Music changes and picks up pace as Chiziru makes her way over to Tachibana*… Chiziru: “Don’t even lay a finger on my friend. I’m goin’ protect Sana, no matter what it takes!”
Ep12: *Engi growing and sewing rage within her spirit, summons her sword to her hand and gives growl*… Engi: “Demon you have defiled the sanctity of my garden! Disgusting! I will punish you!” *Engi slashes her sword while striking a scary scowl and scary grimace upon her frozen face.*
Ep12: *All looks bleak; Engi is down in the dirt, and her human partner is staring off into space, devoid of hope; Merry is getting pummeled; Chiziru is angered, but is unable to move; Chiziru’s partner, Leon, is thinking all is lost; the scene switches over to Engi’s sword, which is standing vertically erect in the ground; the tassel, located on the sword’s hilt, makes a ringing sound; where upon which, a hand, Yumeji’s hand, hovers over hilt and powerfully picks said sword up; Yumeji, wielding Engi’s sword, slowly strides toward the enemy, Mistltein.*… Bad Dude: “Don’t be an idiot. What can you do against a demon?”… Yumeji: “To be honest with you, I’m not sure somebody like me can do anything at all, but still… seeing as there’s no one else here to pick up this sword… I got to do everything I can!”… *Mistltein makes a most menacing face*… Yumeji: “Let’s finish this Mistltein.”… *Yumeji musters his massive spirit and shouts as he heroically runs towards fray to fight Mistltein.*
The Preview of Ep13 found at the end of Ep12:: “Dreams, Daydreams, Dream Demons, humans. Dreams, despair, endless darkness… Dreams, resignation, endless silence… Dreams, like fading memories… Dreams, like a fragile flower, like a human life… and like a human’s hope...fragile, but strong… Strong, but gentle… always looking forward… Always moving forward with all their might! Next time, on Dream Eater Merry: “Dream Again.””
EST: “Once I feel better after eating lots of sweets… I quietly think about them. I spend sleepless nights…counting sheep under the blanket. And waiting for dawn… I wish that tomorrow will be a fun day. Feelings turn into strength… and enfold me. My smile conveys the hope… (that) tomorrow will surely come.”
