I assume that you are referring to the Mermaid's Forest TV series that is currently airing and being subbed by Live-eviL. It isn't licensed, but you probably did watch something very similar. Back in 1991 there was an OVA called Mermaid's Forest which was based on one of Rumiko Takahashi's short manga stories. The new TV series is based upon the rest of her mermaid stories.

Oh. I was wondering that too.

^_^ Though not too much since I thought the OVA's were too depressing. Are the TV eps better?

Ok.

Rumiko-sama has made some of the most important animes in the past, I think this deserves a look-see.

Any other Mermaid's Forest Fans out there?

I definitly like this series. It has this wonderful dark feeling about it and the storys pretty good too. Although the monsters look a little goofy. Too bad the fan base isn't very big so we can get faster releases though.

Anyways who else is following this one?

Heck yes! This show is so twisted and evil that I can't get it out of my head. Just when I think I've seen it all, this show provides a new variety of evil inflicted in the name of immortality. The eponymously titled chapter, episodes 4 and 5 particularly impressed me. I was totally blown away by the ending.

NoSanninWa read my mind. This series is both shocking and fascinating.

Yeah, the graphic quality for this series is not that good but the story itself is awesome. But one thing I don't like about the story is the main character guy keeps dying again and again in every episodes. Okay...we know that he is immortal but he should have value his life a bit more instead of getting reckless and die.

Well, the main guy just always happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Anyway, if you were immortal I bet you would be a little more reckless too. Heck I would be.

Ep 7 was so heartbreaking and really creepy too. Natsume laying out the bones of another little girl so nonchalantly gave me goose bumps.

if you guys like the tv version, you really should check out the original Mermaid Forest ova, as well as Mermaid's Scar. (the only version of mermaid's scar that is remotely available to download is dubbed, however).

Mermaid Forest TV is a retelling of the ova, and also has a loooot more back story. Mermaid's Scar is the sequel to Mermaid Forest, with the same characters.

i loved both, so i really love the tv series as well. both the original ova and scar are also really dark.
