The docks provide a look into the very essence of ocean life—the calm, rhythmic sounds of the waves, the small bugs skittering across the pier, and—mermaids!? Takurou Mukoujima's quiet days spent fishing are no more when he reels in the energetic mermaid Muromi-san, who proceeds to entertain herself around her newfound friend, even if he is obviously disinterested.

Now with a talkative and reckless companion always by his side, Takurou struggles to avoid getting caught up in Muromi-san's pace as she starts to invite her deep-sea friends, making the dock a popular gathering place for mythological creatures. Every day might be new and exciting, but all Takurou really wants is to fish in peace!

Namiuchigiwa no Muromi San
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.

Art & Animation
It was mediocre but in some way i think it was on purpose to be drawn like that ...

Mixed Feelings
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, ...

So, I just finish watching the last ep of this 12 min omake. So, my ratings:

Story: Fair 6

Frankly there isn't any, this more like your cliche pesky girl coming into boy's life and makes a mess out of it, but then again, the comedy genre was the one that makes up for this anime.

Art: Dreadful 2

The art form was simply too messy and it look like some wanna be mangaka did a lousy job.
