While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!

This anime is one of my favorites EVER. In my book, It'll always be placed in the top 10 animes. I find it funny because, Romantic Love Comedies are my favorite. The only thing i DISLIKE about this Anime is that everyone is so ..Whats the word.. Suspicious  but yet Angerful around Sun, But only the guys actually care for Sun. Including her Dad. To Sum it up Its one of my FAVE Animes ever. read more
