Synopsis

Michishio Nagasumi’s life couldn’t be any more normal. In an odd twist of events, during his summer vacation he ends up almost drowning in the sea. Luckily, the cute mermaid Seto Sun appears to save him. However, Sun is from a yakuza mermaid family and according to their law, if a human is to catch sight of a mermaid, either he or the mermaid must die. The only other way is for Nagasumi to be taken in as a family member, marrying Sun. In attempts to save both of their lives, Nagasumi asks for Sun’s hand in marriage. Nagasumi’s summer vacation reaped more than what he would expect, as he must now protect Sun from others finding her secret out.

Review

For a long time this was my favourite anime but now that I just look back at it all I see is a romantic comedy. My views of anime are difficult to trust from a long time ago but I remember finding this one really funny and endearing. I saw this in the dub and the introduction of a character called Maki was the worst thing ever because of her voice but once that was out of the way I ended up really liking it.
