What they say: Nagasumi’s in hot water after a beautiful, young mermaid named Sun saves him from drowning. The deep-sea sweetheart’s dad is a merman Yakuza prone to executing anyone who learns his family’s scaly secret! Luckily, there’s a catch – if Nagasumi agrees to marry Sun, he just might avoid sleeping with the fishes!
Of course, the honeymoon ends before it even begins when Nagasumi finds his life flooded with gilled gangsters looking out for their boss’s little girl. The kid’s definitely in over his head, but there’s no denying the mermaid’s allure – Nagasumi’s hooked and Sun’s ready to come ashore!
What I say: My Bride is a Mermaid is a fun little Anime. Every episode is full of laughs and it does a good job of carrying the storyline over the entire series of 26 episodes. The show takes the story of The Little Mermaid and throws several crazy twists on it. Sun dad is underwater yakuza (Yes, you read that right) which naturally complicates things.
The jokes fly fast and furious, the supporting cast only adds to the zaniness. Definitely stands up to repeat viewings as there is so much going on.
Picture quality is great, Japanese and English voice casts are both fantastic. This set does contain all 26 episodes.
