Two poor brothers wearing matching bunny suits are distracted from their lives as street performers by a mysterious young girl and a very phallic train. After hitching a ride, they arrive in an elaborate underwater palace inhabited entirely by females, who "entertain" male guests from above the surface. Aside from the females, there is the Dragon God, and Hiroshi - the sole male member of the tribe who holds a deep-seated grudge about being forced to live in the air ducts! Is there any way for the brothers to return to their terrestrial life, after being swept up in this bizarre world of revenge schemes, court intrigue, and time travel?
Sometimes, the day after it rains, a tall man with a fishbowl instead of a head stalks through the streets assaulting people, drinking their blood, and then turning them into a goldfish. The townspeople are completely defenseless to his attacks, and must rely on blood divers, members of a vigilante group who jump into a victim’s body and stop the transformation, to keep this predator at bay. Ringo is one such blood diver who patrols the town with nothing but a plastic pistol and goldfish scoop, but she’s extremely inexperienced. Can the girl stop the fishy menace that’s terrorizing the town?!
If you enjoyed how completely bizarre either of these manga are, you may enjoy the other. Both have watery settings/characters, a similar sort of visual humor, and will appeal to lovers of the ridiculous.
The Music of Marie and Ryuuguuden are two oddball seinen manga that blend fantasy with science fiction, have a penchant for drastic, narrative-altering twists, and muse over subjects such as whether it's admissable to sacrifice certain things to maintain society's peace and status quo.
Years ago, the mermaid inhabitants of an underwater brothel were ruthlessly slaughtered for their expensive body parts. The only survivors of this massacre were three young sisters who, enraged by having witnessed their mother's murder, now lure sailors into the depths to devour them. While chasing jellyfish one day, the middle sister, Julie, is caught in a net and hauled to the surface. She manages to escape from this ordeal alive, but during her brief time on land the mermaid fell in love with a human. Can the two lovers find true happiness together, despite their conflicting backgrounds?
Two very weird/quirky/surreal manga revolving around an underwater brothel run by an all-female (and all-related) group of mermaid/siren/fish-people-things. Loose re-telling of the Ryujin (water dragon god) legend.
