Synopsis

Legend has it that when you eat the flesh of a mermaid, you would live forever. Yuta and Mana are living proof of this... Together, they journey to various places trying to find meaning for their existence, or perhaps even a "cure" for their situation. One day, Yuta and Mana meet Masato, a little boy who seems terrified of his mother Misa. It seems to Yuta and Mana that mother and son have a very unusual relationship. What happens when Yuta and Mana decide to discover the dark secret Masato and Misa are hiding? And what about those monster-like creatures that have been appearing?

I haven't read the Manga so I couldn't speculate as to why the final volume always gets left out.

Mermaid's Scar has a fairly simple plot. Mermaids exist and eating their flesh either makes humans immortal or, far more likely, turns them into amphibious monsters. The story begins with two seemingly young read more

I just finished watching the OVA and I have to say that I wasn't overly impressed. The basic premise of the story had promise: either become immortal or a monster through eating mermaid flesh.

The rest were flat and dull in my opinion including the antagonist. The art style is pretty outdated even in my eyes with the static shots and the awkward pauses in conversations. The voice acting...again refer to above for my opinion. It could have been read more
