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 is a pretty laid back 13 ep anime. with a very light hearted cast and "story" one thing I liked about this show is that all the characters are cute especially harpy and yeti. however this is a very japanese anime. it uses alot of references to japanese folk-lore and history. which might be confusing for the west. it was fun to google the stuff they brought up in the show though. id be lieing if I said I wasnt drawn to this show because of the big-boob mermaid "fiji-san" but I was overall satisfied with the show and the corky ...

This is a nice show that at first glance doesn't seem like much. But it starts to be funnier and better as the show goes on.

Biggest issue is that that amount of time we have of screen time is small with only 12 minutes each episode. It can easily have been a 23 minute episode or a 24 episode season.

The first episode or two is kind of rough . But nothing awful.

I like the main Mermaid in this. I like her more when she was younger. From her appearance and attitude is just better. I think she looked a lot better when she ...

Mixed Feelings
It's not necessarily a bad show, but when the plot wasn't about the platonic relationship between a mermaid and a human and instead about the relationships between a bunch of mermaids, I really didn't enjoy the show. Yes, the whole point is "holy moly! mermaids are real!" but none of the mermaids are really that interesting, nor do they add anything to the (non-existent) plot of the show. The mermaids don't contrast each other well, even if acting slightly different they all share INCREDIBLY similar personalities, making a great majority of the main characters pointless other than having the watcher experience some ounce of shock ...
