Ah geez, I haven't read this manga in so long, but I feel like I need to write it a review, since it was one of my favorites. As a 10 year old, naïve child, I first discovered Mermaid Saga in a library and thought "the word 'mermaid' is in the title, it must be a cute mermaid shoujo story about cuteness and love and glitter with pretty flower patterns all over the pages". Well, I read it and NOPE. Instead it was quite the opposite and I was so disturbed by it, yet loved it so much that I bought the manga and re-read read more

Excellent manga. Too bad it was discontinued. It lacks a clear goal or an evil antagonist, who needs to be taken down, which is why it has more of an episodic character.
The main characters are rather bland. Yuta is your average good guy, Mana is your average brat - which is surprising since they both have such dark and tragic pasts.
The episodes themselve though are incredibly well structured, engaging and gripping.

Okay this was the first manga I bought and I can tell you it's not so bad. The story is well put and doesnt leave you into boredom although it does drif you away from the story one chapter and so forth on mostly the Main character Yuta's past than much on the current story with him and Mana characters are okay and the art is not bad. I guess if you want something to enjoy on a semi-long trip this one is alright to read it's an ok manga, but not as good as her others like InuYasha(even though I haven't read the manga read more
