Synopsis

After losing her mother in a tragic car accident, nine-year-old Melmo Watari now faces a big challenge: taking care of her two younger brothers, the preschooler Totoo and baby Touch.

Watching from Heaven and concerned about her kids' terrible situation, their mother decides to appear in their lives one last time as a ghost and give Melmo a jar full of magical candies. The candies have the power to make her 10 years older or younger, as well as turn her into any animal she wants. Using her newfound abilities, Melmo wears various disguises as a 19-year-old woman and looks after her brothers, all while still trying to lead a normal life.

You might recall some time around 2014 when Tezuka’s daughter found a stash of sexy mouse drawings locked in his desk. To many it was a surprise that one of the inarguably biggest and most influential creators in manga and anime industry was into that sort of smut.

Well I’ll tell you what if someone aside from me and a few hundred other people bothered to watch this garbage fire not only would it not be surprised but they’d probably be underwhelmed too. But that’s neither here nor there, let’s get through this from the start.

Fushigi na Melmo is a weird ass anime about a little ...
