Synopsis
One day, a high school student named Tatsumi who lives alone and freely at home saves a handsome young man. The man's name is Wakasa, and Tatsumi discovers that he is a merman. Wakasa is apparently also fond of the bathtub and decides to stay in Tatsumi's house.

This, it reminds me of that, too, if you are thinking of that one.

The synopsis had me burst out laughing. Like, lol, a merman who likes a bathtub. No seriously, why stay in a cramped bathtub when you could be in the open sea?

Anyway, yes please, I'll gladly watch this. Hope it's not a short, but even then I'll watch it.

I hope this is a full TV Anime! I really do!

I know nothing about the manga but I think it'll have some fanservice but no real BL. I think it'll be cute boys doing cute things. I can't think of it as any more than that. I could be completely wrong though.

While it is completely understandable that you don't like BL you don't have to say it way, do you?

Ohh this sounds interesting. And similar to the OVA about the merman and the human guy that I was planning to watch later on. It looks cute as heck so I'm looking forward to it.

I will at least give this a try with the first three episodes. The synopsis isn't something I'm interested in though. I just hope the comedy is decent at least.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

.... Of course I'll watch this.

This sounds 100% bl but I might be wrong. If it's really a genuine BL tho, then damn if 2014 isn't the best year so far. I'm not complaining one bit :'D

Same for me. This reminds me of that. Plus, it's shoujo so I'll check it out for sure.

This seems like it will end up being something with Yaoi overtones.

As of now I'm not too interested. Last time I saw something with a merman it was pretty melodramatic and craptastic.

I hope this will be nothing but a quirky comedy.

For some reason I found this post funny. Might be the straightforward simplicity of pointing out something that seems rather blatantly obvious lol. Or maybe it's just because it's Hoppy...BTW you didn't specify whether those overtones are a positive or negative for you.

As for me, probably not something I would be interested in. Only having male main characters isn't a positive for me either.

Yaoi undertones??? Cool guy blushing because of what the merman said??? Cool guy can't take a shower because the merman is there in the freakin' bathtub but the merman will say: it's alright, join me, then cool guy will go: baka then blushes???
It really sounds and looks like a BL Anime to me.
I will still watch it though, it looks fun ahahaha.

Looks like it could be amusing, I'll give it a go. Can't be that bad...well, it can, but hopefully it'll just be silly jokes.

I was excited when I thought it'd be BL but not disappointed that it isn't! A cute story is a cute story.

There's a lot of shoujo shows without female leads. What's wrong with that?

Am i the only one who thinks that the premise is very similar with Level E? An ordinary dude meets bizarre dude and hilarity ensues between them. This sounds right on my alley and Level E was an absolute riot that i enjoyed thoroughly. So yes, i'm sold

If it is it would have a shounen ai/yaoi tag, is it that hard to understand?
Now, it may have BL undertones and it may not. Just like many other shows with a mostly male cast didn't before. I think this is also not very difficult to understand.

There sure are some thick heads here tho.
anyway, it looks cute. Will definitely watch, hope the comedy is good too.
