Synopsis

Shima Kawauchi was taken in by his kind grandfather following the divorce of his unloving parents. His grandfather passes away in due time, leaving Shima all alone. Consumed by grief, he cries by the oceanside at night when an accident causes him to fall into the water. Unable to swim, Shima nearly drowns but is saved by an incredibly handsome merman. Seeing Shima's emotional state, the merman—who Shima names Isaki—insists that Shima take him home until he fully recovers. However, as they settle into their space together, the two start to form a bond that transcends both species and gender.

(This is my first review) I do have a thing for "shounen ai" anime but I don't watch much of it. Oh yea and also am I the only one who thinks that Shima Kawauchi looks similar to Haruka from Free!? So does his voice even though Haruka and Shima don't have the same seiyuu.

Sound:10 Outstanding
Music was beautiful, even though I don't see much shows/OVA's with outstanding soundtrack.

Art:9 Great
The art was pretty unusual but relaxing to look at.

Story:8 Very Good
There was a dark aura behind most of the story and I wanted Shima to spend more time with Isaki but the ending was beautiful.

WARNING: THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. I'LL TRY TO BE SUBTLE WITH THE SPOILERS BUT JUST FOR A WARNING IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE SHOW, DON'T READ THIS.

To put it simply, I'm pretty chill with yaoi. It's not like I like to watch it on a daily basis, no sir, but it's just when I find one that catches my attention that leads me into watching it. This was one of them.

Story: 6

The story is about our main protagonist, Shima, who is basically that kid who wanted to be perfect for his family. So when his parents had a divorce, he was taken to live with ...

Mixed Feelings
Woooow, my first review will be for a gay OVA :') Why the hell not.

(there is, like, one minor SPOILER ahead)

When it comes to shounen-ai, it's supposed to be pretty easy to make it enjoyable for the targeted group. You know, just mix two guys, a bag of stereotypes, sexual tension and you have a shounen-ai anime/manga. ...But then there am I, who will probably shit all over this anime/manga, even though I love LGBT+ stuff.

But let's take it from the start.

Story - 5/10; Characters - 3/10
If you are looking for a good plot, good characters and good story pacing... do NOT watch this ...
