Synopsis

Michishio Nagasumi's life couldn't be any more normal. In an odd twist of events, during his summer vacation he ends up almost drowning in the sea. Luckily, the cute mermaid Seto Sun appears to save him. However, Sun is from a yakuza mermaid family and according to their law, if a human is to catch sight of a mermaid, either he or the mermaid must die. The only other way is for Nagasumi to be taken in as a family member, marrying Sun. In attempts to save both of their lives, Nagasumi asks for Sun's hand in marriage. Nagasumi's summer vacation reaped more than what he would expect, as he must now protect Sun from others finding her secret out.

Seto no Hanayome is one of the rarest types of anime you can find - a parody rom-com that is actually extremely funny!

This is without doubt one of the funniest animes released in the past few years, and I have never seen parody done so well since the original Jungle wa itsumo hale nochi guu (especially Michishio Nagasumi's pardoy of Ken from Fist of the North Star, and Runa's father as the the terminator).

The art style in this anime, like most parodies, can take a little getting used to, but it doen't really cause headaches. The characters have all have their own quirks and foibles read more

First off, I would like to get this straight. I am not a huge fan of romance anime's, throw in a harem in the way, then just forget about it . Now, dont get me wrong. I am not saying this anime breaks away from the tired formula of harems, in fact it has the word cliche written all over it. But what separates this anime from the rest, is how it uses those cliche to its advantage.

Read the synopsis, an average student gets forcibly married to the girl. We all know how those goes, right? Yes, the plot has been done a hundred read more

Seto no Hanayome is a Romantic, Comedy about a young boy who was saved from drowning by a beautiful mermaid and according to mermaid law, he/she must die. However to escape their wrath, he decides to marry her but this will eventually cause more problems. The premise of the show may be that of an average Romantic Comedy but it is so enjoyably fun to watch that it doesn’t matter.

That is basically how the story begins and from that point on there really isn’t any storyline that moves the series along, but just a bunch of random cliched settings that every anime fan is familiar read more

DO NOT watch this anime in public (especially when you are surrounded by people, ie. library @ school, internet cafe, or wherever) unless you want to embarrass yourself due to uncontrollable laughing-out-loud (a real LOL). Consider yourself warned!

To start it off, I consider Seto no Hanayome a masterpiece of its genre(s). It is unfortunate that Seto no Hanayome was aired at the same time as Lucky Star, as some of its glory was "drowned" by it.

Story:
There isn't much of a storyline to really talk about for Seto no Hanayome except for how everything got started (which you can read from the synopsis above). After that, read more
