Doesn't seem to be a thread about this even though it's premiering next week and Crunchyroll has it.

CR's summary:

Quote:
Get ready for a heartfelt comedy about a teenage boy named Tatsumi who is frequently housing some strange guests; including Wakasa, a good looking mermaid who has taken over his bathtub! This cute but selfish freeloader is a perfect match for the cool but tender and caring Tatsumi. Let's see how they get by together!
Non-ecchi version of Monster Musume?

Here's a characters/seiyuus page, with pics of the main characters and their seiyuus, and a bit of info about each seiyuu. The (non-merman) protagonist's jealous younger sister is played by Kido Ibuki.

That OP while good was way more angsty/edgy then anything I've seen from the manga yet. But at least they know the real reason anyone would watch this. Look at all that focus on the important parts.

It was okay. For some reason, I didn't know it would be a short 5-minuter, but I think that might have been better for it. I doesn't seem to have much plot to it. The comedy is okay, but some others might find it more interesting.

Well, this was cute, if way too short. Funny, too, so I'll stick with it.

I do wonder about the OP, though, I mean... what? why? is this really going to be dark and angsty?

The only explanation I can think of is that the OP (except for characters) contain nothing related to the story itself and is simply there for fanservice and seeing the characters in a way we wont in the episodes themselves.

Or it is all metaphorical of either some outer (destruction of nature?) or inner (the human MC, from what we've seen, doesn't seem that worried about people finding a merman in his bathtub, suggesting not only that he lives alone, but that he doesn't have friends over very often? I've seen humor series do the "lonely MC angst" thing before) conflict.

Either way it is a cute and fun episode, so I'm continuing to watch this.

I did not expect this to only be 3 mins, I more expected Kokkuri-san to be a short one over this. Still, interesting and sticking with it.

My thoughts exactly, especially regarding the OP. As I was watching it I had a look on my face...serious and heavy elements incoming here?

Still, it seems pleasant enough to watch. The tailfin flop on the poor guy's head in the bath tub made me laugh more than I expected it to, though.

It is really hard to think of this as dark when you have images like this

I had heard earlier that the episode might a short. Disappointed that the rumor was true. But it was still an enjoyable episode.

I wonder how the human managed to miss the fish tail when the merman was at the waterside? I saw it.

Perhaps he thought it was some strange covering like the guy had tried to go swimming and gotten caught in something. Oh well at the end of the day we ended up with a hot merman in Haruka Nanase's bathtub, that's all that matters, right, right?!

Does that double as a seiyuu joke?

Haha, yes, sorry. Nobunaga Shimazaki who does the voice of Tatsumi the non-merman in this show, also did the voice for Haruka Nanase from Free! our resident "merman" in that show.

That's what I guessed you meant but I wanted to be sure. Now I have to watch the show again to listen to him more closely.

I blame you for this chore.

Glad to see Shimazaki get more lead roles. He's cute.

This show played like a fanfiction author's wet dream of Free. Only the merman isn't Haruka

He should get more emotional or even hotblooded roles. He rocked as Kouichi in Daimidaler...
