It might be a disgrace to all Seto Mermaids in the event that you don’t read this review, because “Honor among thieves is honor beneath the Seas.” You may hear the female that is main, Sun Seto, state this signature line one or more times per episode in Funimation’s brand new romantic comedy, the BRIDE IS REALLY A MERMAID.

It might be a disgrace to all Seto Mermaids in the event that you don’t read this review, because “Honor among thieves is honor beneath the Seas.” You may hear the female that is main, Sun Seto, state this signature line one or more times per episode in Funimation’s brand new romantic comedy, the BRIDE IS REALLY A MERMAID.

The plot that is basic of tale is Nagasumi (our hero) is conserved from drowning by Sun Seto (the mermaid). But, Mermaid Law states that if a human sees a mermaid the mermaid (and/or the individual) needs to perish. The solution for this nagging issue is needless to say to own them get hitched!

Admittedly, from reading the plot summary, and simply from the name of this series, you could assume that it was merely another run associated with the mill harem show with a plot that is contrived doesn’t matter. As you could be right about any of it being fully a harem show, this might be a lot more than simply another kid needs to marry fish girl in order to avoid death anime. Consider The Little Mermaid combined with A japanese yakuza household and a small dash of Azumanga Daioh, and you might have My Bride is a Mermaid. This review is for initial 13 episodes.

Nagasumi is visiting his Grandma during the Seto Sea and it has been teased by their dad about maybe perhaps maybe not having the ability to swim. Next scene, he’s screaming for assist in the ocean, and sinking below the area, where in fact the very last thing he views is exactly exactly what appears to be mermaid that is a? as he involves, their dad is throwing him saying they’ve been searching for him for four hours, and then find him resting. Nagasumi attempts to no avail to inform their dad he had been very nearly drowned and ended up being saved by a mermaid. Their dad laughs and ignores him because everybody knows that mermaids usually do not occur!

He continues to make an effort to persuade his moms and dads, before the woman in question walks away from the shadows and asks Nagasumi to simply simply take obligation for just exactly what took place between them. She asks him to marry her. Their dad gets upset (since their son evidently has drawn a cute woman, while he’s stuck with their spouse) and busts out their kept hook. Then Masa (a dandy who’s a winner guy), comes to “invite” them to your Seto house. Nagasumi’s mother immediately lusts over Masa. Then Nagasumi and his parents are pushed down a cliff in to the ocean, in a attempt that is apparent destroy them. He is unconscious, which prompts Masa to give him mouth to mouth, taking his first kiss when he wakes up, Nagasumi pretends. This eventually ends up being another operating gag, for whenever either Nagasumi or their mom see Masa, they both get goo goo eyes for him. They meet the mind regarding the Seto Gang, whom just is actually Sun’s daddy, and does nothing like the concept of a individual marrying his sweet child (which occurs to possess been their wife’s concept), and attempts to destroy Nagasumi at every opportunity. And this had been simply the episode that is first!

From there the comedy ramps up even further as the tried assassinations have also wilder. Poor Nagasumi cannot also simply just simply take Sun on a night out together without worrying all about their life (chocolate covered weapon, anybody?). If that has been all he previously to be worried about, he’d have their arms complete. A mermaid has legs just like human’s, but if they get wet (bad pun completely intended) their legs turn into fins on dry land. Ends up, Sun is just a water magnet that is total. She’s clumsy and is constantly into the real means of water. Nagasumi goes all away to test and conceal her key, and eventually ends up purchasing her a band, which she immediately loses, and her daddy discovers. It is amazing that Nagasumi helps it be through the night with simply a complete human body cast! Only at that point not half the characters in the show have already been introduced yet!

Later we meet Maki the conch, a small assassin who shoots an unlimited method of getting water bullets, and who’s also out to kill Nagasumi. Then in comes Nagasumi’s childhood buddy, Mawari Zenigata, whom unbeknown to her features a crush on him. Then we obtain the pop music idol, Lunar, that is sweet to your general general public but just isn’t good (and discusses by herself in fourth individual), and who’s additionally a childhood and mermaid buddy of Sun’s. Lunar desires revenge for being beaten by Sun in a kindergarten performing contest, therefore she sets down to just just take Nagasumi as her guy servant. Toss in a cast of the walking Shark named Fujishiro, a child called Chimp, an octopus known as Nakajima, moms and dads whom blame him for every thing, and you’ve got insanity that is pure. Will Nagasumi also survive towards the big day?

The cast has some talent that is new additionally having the backing of veteran sound actors. Nagasumi is voiced by Todd Haberkorn, that will be recognized as Watanuki from Holic and Death the Kid of Soul Eater. Sun Seto gets her vocals from brand new comer Alexis Tipton, whom plays Emi Kizaki in Linebarrels of Iron. Masa is Chris Sabat, an actor that is veteran played Vegeta and Piccolo of DBZ popularity. Maki the Conch is played by the Monica that is ever insane Rial who’s additionally the vocals of Momoka in Sgt. Frog. Mawari gets her sound from Cherami Leigh, whom was simply Tamaki in Bamboo Blade and Setsuna in Negima. Then top it down using the show being narrated by Linda younger whom sounds Genkai in Yu Yu Hakusho. This show features a ton of veteran and talent that is new which brings down the very best of both its comedy and feeling.

Don’t allow the name or summary with this show place you down, like it did for me in the beginning. This show is one nonstop comedy trip, the jokes never ever stop and also this is the very first half! It shows more heart than the usual normal harem show. We give it 7 octopus tentacles away from 8 (in the event that you monitor what Nagasumi’s mom is eating in episode 2 and what’s lacking from Nakajima later on, well, you obtain the concept).

Should you not view this show it’s going to be a disgrace to ALL Seto Mermaids, because once we now understand: Honor among thieves, is honor underneath the seas!
