Man's relationship with the sea has always been one of awe and fear. Awe from its immensity and depth; fear from its power.

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.
Water plays a large role in both of these series as well as mythology. Both have some level of interaction with character in and outside of the water and the bonds/friendship they may create.
