Licensing GET: Sentai Filmworks nabs Dream Eater Merry


Here's some good news for fans of midriffs and worship-worthy character design: Sentai Filmworks has grabbed the license to Yumekui Merry, and will be bringing it over as Dream Eater Merry.

If you haven't been following my belated coverage of it in our weekly Annotated Anime recaps, I'll have you know that so far it's looking like a keeper. Not only does lead lady Merry Nightmare have a midriff-tastic, worship-worthy character design (provided by Masahiro Fuji of Hayate the Combat Butler fame), the whole show seems to have a sense of pacing that reminds me of Bakemonogatari, except not trying as hard to be sophisticated or meta.

What say you? Is this news from your dreams (day- or otherwise)?
