May Kanou is the coolest new idol around. Everybody seems to think May's got it made, but secretly, May struggles with overcoming past trauma...she caught her mother having an affair on the day of her father's funeral, and carries the burden of her mother's failed music career. But May has her longtime friend and lover Yuu by her side. Yuu's ready to help May overcome her fear of intimacy and get ready for the big stage!

Part of Little Mermaid Series along with Telepathist IQ Saiko, Punky Funky Baby and Suashi no Houkago.

Also released in US by Blue Animation, but without subtitles and the censorship was not removed (what little there was of it as most scenes didn't display any genitalia).

"If you're anxious about being loved. We'll take it step by step" - May Kanou

Coming from the early days of erotic anime Shining May is somewhat lighter and heavier in theme and plot. Centering around the titular character who is trying to break free from her own trauma's and getting ready to enter the entertainment industry as well as her own heart.

Those looking forward to some steamy sex will most likely be disappointing since what's featured here is tender but fairly graphic lovemaking rather than "meat shots" on display, however erotic as it is there are just about enough here for everyone.

That aside ...
