Mukoujima Takurou is a lonely teenager who spends his time fishing at the pier and, to his incredible surprise, fishes up Muromi, a mermaid. Muromi first off doesn't realize she's a mermaid until she meets Takurou. Not only that, she is incredibly dense and crazy and has a drinking problem to top it off. Now every time Takurou goes fishing, Muromi appears and makes life interesting for him.

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 read more

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, read more

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.

Sound: Good 7

The rating is for the opening theme and the seiyuu's who did Takkun and Muromi's voice.

Character: Good 7

I'd say for a character were one might wanna give Muromi a karate read more

***This is a spoiler free review***

For a short time format anime, Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san sure packs a huge punch with it’s amazing animation and voice acting.

Story: 5.5/10

Let’s get this straight; there is no plot in this anime. While some of the episodes build on each other, most are self contained. What you get in this anime is exactly what it does well; gag skits. Literally every episode is something leading up to a gag. While most of the content in the show pertains to Japanese common knowledge, most subs will provide tooltips for the things you might not understand.

Overall the show is really funny and read more
