Mixed Feelings
This show doesn’t have a review? Well I guess I’ll be the first. First off if your looking for a mermaid themed show this probably isn’t it as the main character doesn’t really spend a lot of time in her mermaid form. The first ep is like the classic “little mermaid” story except instead of becoming a human and going to a fairy tale castle to chase, she becomes a high school student and starts going to high school. There are some good eps here and there but as much as I love 70’s anime, this show hasn’t aged well. If you like older anime ...
