No reviews in here so I'll puke one up to try and help out potential readers.

Story: 7

The story wasn't all that creative and it was very short although i did enjoy it. Mermaids appear at night and you have to eat their flesh to meet your true love. :P The ending was great...

Art: 8

I thought the art was very good, everything was clear and the characters were good looking and realistic enough. The backgrounds were good also. All around good art which is to be expected of such a short story.

Character: 5

Obviously this is a 1 volume 3 chapter manga so there isn't much read more

"We had a rumor at our school... At night, in the school's pool, mermaids would appear..."

Yoshitomi Akihito is an author with a diverse body of work, ranging from cute girls love oneshots to medical dramas to shounen sci-fi stories. For a horror series to pop up on such an eclectic resume isn't all that unusual, but beyond being unique among his works its subject matter and distinct method of storytelling stands out as memorable even among similar series in the same genre. Although its brief duration limits the overall impact of the delivery, School Ningyo is a delightfully creepy story that knows just when and read more

Ok, for the faint of heart, don't read it. Then again. I think It may have been just me who found this so darn disturbing!!!

For me one of the worst things to ever happen to a human is to lose the ability to think and speak freely. To become an animal with nothing. I dunno why. It makes me uncomfortable. This is a shocking anime that is sure to make a good hit at the slumber party.

That is the horror meter on it, Slumber party scary. A good ghost story. No more no less.

Story - I've never seen a take like this on mermaids before. Obviously ritual canabilism comes up in a great deal of stories but I've been seen a take like this before and I enjoyed the story much more than I originally thought I would. I found it fairly predictable however (though this might just be my cynical outlook on people) but the ending was a good twist if you didn't see it coming.

Art - The manga was well drawn. I liked the orignal take on the mermaids and how they look fairly human.

Character - In the end, it is only three chapters but I read more
