Mawari X Kai is so wrong...
It should be Kai X Saru, they obviously can't live without each other

And for the rest thats easy...

Nagasumi X {San, Mawari, Luna, Akeno, Inchou and every other cute girl}

Hahaha
Honestly I don't think there's any real pairings besides San X Nagasumi(well maybe Saru X Kai as grey_moon said). The boat scene with Kai X Mawari is nothing compared to what Nagasumi has with Mawari :\, especially now since there's a confession misunderstanding.

And Saru X Akeno.... Saru in that state would grab anyone's breasts I think.

Well forget pairing, this anime at times gives off this harem feeling all centered towards Nagasumi, not exactly harem since Nagasumi feels for San the most(thus already "chosen"). But it's obvious that Luna, Mawari and that class prez all have a thing for Nagasumi.

-I don't think anything suggests there's a Nagasumi X Akeno... yet.
Unless there's something like that in the manga?

Hmmm. . .just enough information in episode 19 to start asking the "Why?" questions. . .not that I expect any real answers soon.

e.g., Why would the fish government (or some covert subsection) want San and Nagasumi to separate (and let San and Nagasumi think it was their idea)? The idiot fish brothers may have given part of the answer--that Nagasumi/San is the forefront of a kind of revolution, but perhaps there's more going on. . .

Also--Why does drunk Akeno want affection/friendship from humans, but sober Akeno thinks it never would/should work out, especially for Nagasumi x San?

-------

Meanwhile:

I'm going to have to agree on this one, out of sheer plain jealosy.

-------

Finally, with regards to the next section in the manga being skipped. . .I suspect it will be back, especially if there is a second season. It provides some insight into how the merfolk world is set up, and a couple of characters make some important (?) decisions.

However, ironically, it is an easily moved chapter; and, perhaps the anime writers wanted to smooth out the story flow.

i missed that yeah.
why would mermaid government be so opposed to san/nagasumi.
Probably because of some simple reason as. We don't like it. We don't mix.
And it would end in a climax like
oo but wait, what is this bright shining light coming from nagasumi and san? oo it's love, understanding and chivalry.
I have seen the light lets leave them alone.

Nope that was from my belief in the "N Factor"(TM). (<- The N stands for Nagasumi )

I believe that was a cunning ploy from our perverted little saru to make Kai realise how much he needs to spank his monkey

The strange thing was that he wanted to make sure both San and Luna's families did not know about it... Why would Luna's family be involved too? Unless her dad pulled some strings to pave the way for his dear daughter, but he doesn't want her to know he is helping her.... Either that or the Akeno's boss wants San for himself, not that I can blame him

I know this is thinking ahead, but what would happen if San and Nagasumi had a child? how will it turn out? would it be human or fish? or will it be half human half mermaid. Maybe the goverment is scared of what could happen.

not true as it was explained in ep 19 O.O

Well, they already have strict rules about humans finding out about mermaids (kill them!), so obviously the mermaid society does not want humans to know about them. Even though it seems to meet the requirements of the law concerning humans who find out about mermaids, perhaps they fear that the marriage of Nagasumi and San might eventually lead to the total exposure of the existance of the mermaid world to humans, which is why they are trying to break them up?

Quote:

My take was that is was not so much that she wanted affection/friendship from humans, as that she just wanted affection/friendship from someone. The impression I got was the becuase of her job, and her strict personality, she probably does not have any close friends and she secretly wants that. Nagasumi was just the nearest suitable target of that desire.

Do you think that the mermaids don't want ppl to know about them, because it seems like they are ruling the world?

Well worth it. Thanks.

--------

Backing up to Episode 18 for a bit:

I thought it might be worth mentioning that the "Pure Water Temple" is a real place in Kyoto--the "Kiyomizu-dera".

It's one of the more heavily visited temples, so if Akeno had been exposed as a mermaid there, it really would have been tantamount to being on the national six-o'clock news. (Maki chooses her ambush spots well.)

Also, per Wikipedia (and other sources) , Kiyomizu-dera is "notable for its vast veranda, supported by hundreds of pillars, that juts out over the hillside and offers impressive views of the city. The popular expression "to jump off the stage at Kiyomizu" (「清水の舞台から飛び降りる」) is the Japanese equivalent of the English expression "to take the plunge". This refers to an Edo period tradition that held that, if one were to survive jumping from the stage, one's wish would be granted."

I mention all this becuase there may be a symbolic connection to Akeno. After all, we do see here there when Nagasumi decides to befriend her; and her coming to work/spy on the Setos has turned out to be a risky venture. [There's more I could say too, but I have to save that for later.]

Alas--the Kiyomizu tradition also means Saru and Kai each have a wish coming to them. (Let's hope Saru used his up already. )

Best harem I ever saw... which is not saying much, since 19/20 harem shows are awful, but this is still more entertaining than the rest. Just finished episode 9: I don't know how others feel about him, but I love this Kai character. He comes out on a flippin submarine! He's Senna Kobayashi with money and an attitude, he's Eyeshield 21!

Edit: Now he's also dirtied his hand with a bazooka pulled out of his butt on the run and summon the Ion Cannon (tm) with his cell phone. What's not to like?

Kai reminds me of the pretty girls who know they are, but in the sense he is a boy and who knows he is rich... Bleh I'm not making any sense
