Over-the-top crazy comedy with mermaids and actually a first anime where I don't have to bother with writing a story summaries or re-write a synopsis. I'll save you the reading and tell you straight away - there is no story. Everything you will see is just absolutely random set of scenes featuring mermaids and few other mythological creatures.

It's simple, it's crazy and it's funny as hell. Why? It's easy to understand. Show relies on general "randomness n craziness" and fast paced, dynamical interaction between characters as a main fuel for humor. If it's references something, it references a well known myths or historical events read more

Muromi-san on the Shore is a comedy in which the protagonist Takurou's life is gatecrashed by the titular Muromi when he accidentally catches her whilst trying to fish. Over the course of the series Takurou meets more mythical creatures, all of which are drastically different to what he was expecting.

The show is made up of 13 minute episodes, and this short length is definitely a good thing; it means that the pacing is fast and concise, which is perfect for the humour used.

Both series consists of silly dialogue, scenes, and interactions involving sea creatures. In essence, they are supernatural comedies that deals with characters who are not so normal.

Both series follows more of a slice of life style with no different story.

The main female protagonist also seems to have an outgoing personalities from both series that occasionally drives some of the other characters nuts.


Both involves the same pesky girl who comes into guy's life.

Both pesky girls ruins guy's peaceful lives.

Both involves the same comedy and harem genre.


One was more of sic-fi while the other is into fantasy.

One is a full 25 min long anime while the other is limited only to 12 mins.
