Lets get one thing straight; Mermaid melody is not for everybody. In fact, I would wager that most adults (especially males) would find this series cringe worthy.

However, if you like magical girl series and cute character driven stories, I believe that Mermaid Melody might just be right for you. Keep in mind that the target audience of the seres is very young, but an older person can still enjoy it.

The baseline story isn't very complex, which is fine. It is essentially about mermaid princesses who are temporarily living on land who fight the evils dwelling below the sea....with music. For some known reason, singing read more

Oh boy, where to begin on this review...

Story: Basically it's another "Magical Girl" anime plot, a girl who has the ability to transform must fight this evil group of villains with her friends/comrades as a Super Sentai team. The unique part of this anime is that the Mermaids don't attack, they SING, and their songs are painful to the villains' ears. Other than that, it's all cheesy.

Art: This depends on how you look at it. To me, the dresses for Lucia, Hanon, and Rina are full of many colors! (Practically every shade of pink, aqua, and green respectively.) On the other hand, the characters' appearances read more

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch:
One of THE longest/repetitive names I've ever seen for an anime. And the name it's self probably grabbed your attention if the art didn't, or the fact that this is a MUSICAL anime.

The Story is pretty bad, It's full of gaps and is very jumpy aswell as questionable. The anime is full of fillers, and tends to only focus on Lucia, Hanon, and Lina, the "Primary" mermaids. (They're the only one's with new songs, and imagesongs of their own, Excluding Karen.) The "secondary" mermaids are not ever acknowledged, they don't have background stories, lovers for themselves, or anything the Primary Mermaids read more

Okay, so MMPPP is a great anime, if you like magical girl shoujo romance. You would like it if you watched Sailor Moon or Wedding Peach, but the romance isn't as pleasing. It's very easy to get angry with Kaito, who in my opinion treats Lucia (the main character, who is the Pink Pearl Princess and is Lucia the human) kind of meanly and gets mad if Lucia doesn't bring him a bento or bread that she made or whatever. After awhile, you grow to love him though, because you can see him and Lucia becoming more romantically involved.
The songs get boring after awhile. read more

It's pretty much the same. Romance, Magical Girls and comedy. Tokyo Mew Mew is turning into cats (or other animals) and Mermaid Melody is turning into mermaids. They're REALLY like. I had to think of Tokyo Mew Mew when I was watching Mermaid Melody. Only difference is probably that they're singing in MM.

Transformation sequences, glittery battles, and an all-girl team of superheroes. Heck, even one of the MM:PPP villians looks strinkingly similar to Queen Beryl from Sailor Moon.
I think the art looks the same. The voice from Luchia reminds me of Mitsuki and both animes have singing main characters altough the plot is different. They also have the same amount of episodes.
They gave me the same feeling and I enjoyed those two animes. I'm sure you will like this anime if you've watched this.
Beautiful girls who come from the sea... while Mermaid Melody is about mermaids, singing and shoujo-romance, Umi Monogatari isn't quite so child-orientated and is rather relaxed in its pacing etc.
Both are cute shoujo anime's with characters magical changings to sing a song.

They are both romantic, magical, inspirational, and nice anime. They are both transforming! Shugo Chara- transforming with their Charas! While Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch- is transforming with their Pendant Pearls! It's a little bit confused...but this two Anime were Super Dooper Pretty!!! Very Inspiration!!! In the End, both are happy, peaceful life now! Have two Seasons! Well, I give this Anime a perfect 10!!! Mermaids Or Guardians has always the same!!!
