ʚ " . . . Mermaid , Mermaid . Could you please , Make my love come true , Give for me your flesh and blood . . . " ɞ
School ningyo is a really great body horror manga , It ' s a good read and something you can read to fill up your list. It ' s short despite it ' s 5 volumes , And here ' s why .
ʚ overall : 8/10 ɞ
This manga has earned such a high rating because of it ' s interesting twist on mermaids . This manga had me wanting more every twist
and new lore drop of the mermaids , it was seriously awesome , I had medium expectations for this considering I thought it would be vastly different from what I got but i ' m happy with the outcome , it does lack re-readability but it ' s okay , just a short read that I finished in around a day ! . .
ʚ Characters 7/10 ɞ
This section has a more average rating because a lot of the characters are just filler characters , this is to be expected with mangas that take a route of small stories stitched together , but I enjoyed how some of the characters that you thought weren ' t going to be important actually were and tied heavily into the story . I also enjoyed the fact that there ' s some LGBTQ+ reputation in here with WLW and transfeminity , that also made it quite interesting and unexpected . The random twists and how love can corrupt someone just as it did with who started the legend is really present and I love that .
ʚ Art 7/10 ɞ
This section also has an average rating because it ' s an average style , even mentioned by the artist to this , but I think it does it well , I couldn ' t imagine this story with any other style and I believe it does it justice . The setting is going to be boring but it ' s overshadowed by the interesting concept it has to it .
ʚ Story 9/10 ɞ
As stated , I loved the story and concept for this manga . It was super interesting to see so many characters and what their reactions were to the bizarre situation they were put in . I love when stories make everything tie together , it ' s my favorite thing ever to read . I ' m actually glad it was one of those mangas that make many stories and put them together , this made it much easier to digest the lore in a fun way that made you wanting more .
ʚ Enjoyment 9/10 ɞ
I really enjoyed this manga , it was nice to read and a good read to amp up my manga list . The art was enjoyable , the story was good , and it reminded me heavily of another series I love . It really brings my favorite genres together and didn ' t disappoint me at all .
Do I recommend this ? Yes . It ' s a quick easy read and you can finish it easily within a few hours , It ' s short and really interesting .
