Mukoujima Takurou is a lonely teenager who spends his time fishing at the pier and, to his incredible surprise, fishes up Muromi, a mermaid. Muromi first off doesn't realize she's a mermaid until she meets Takurou. Not only that, she is incredibly dense and crazy and has a drinking problem to top it off. Now every time Takurou goes fishing, Muromi appears and makes life interesting for him.

Muromi-san...and to think that i was not going to see this anime because of how bad the art looked, i'm glad that i saw it was 15 min. per episode that's why i decided to watch it and i don't regret it.

This doesn't have any story whatsoever it's more aimed to be a slice of life comedy where there's no story, is more about a group of mermaids and humans, and a Yeti and a Harpy that tries to do something different everyday.

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. Additionally it means that the show cannot string out jokes so that they become dull and monotonous. With reduced time slot, read more

Quick & Dirty:
Comical, creative, and clever. Likable, especially if you like mermaids. It's pretty short, and is worth a try.
[Ed: Oh- I guess I should mention one of the mermaids is an oppai-having masochist, so a few episodes are particularly... Um... yeah- use your imagination... Anyway, if you like that sort of thing, there ya go.]

Detailed Review:
Essentially a modern day mythological reboot of mostly nautical monsters as personable characters, this creative anime is a comical look at the 'real' monsters of old, some retelling of their history, and how they relate to an ordinary human. Hijinks ensue.

Story: 7
Although the meat of the story is read more

Anime: Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W

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.

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.

Similar type of humor. Lots of girls with crazy personalities.

Anime: Seto no Hanayome
Both series are absurd comedies dealing with the supernatural in particular the theme of mermaids. While Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san seems to lack romance, both series has tons of humorous moments that are often presented by the characters.

The main male protagonist also meets the main female protagonist in an absurd way and they have an absurd relationship. If you're looking for a fun series for some great laughs, check out these two titles.

Anime: Plastic Neesan
Both are gag comedies, have heroines with similar personalities, and short episodes.

Anime: Gake no Ue no Ponyo
Both are about a guy who fishes out/finds a mermaid who immediately falls in love with hime. While Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san is more comedy, Ponyo Ponyo on the Cliff by the See is more fairy tale.
