Seto no Hanayome TV series



Animation Production Company: Gonzo, AIC, Avex Mode

Genre: Romance, Comedy

Expected Release Date: April 2007

Website: http://www.setonohanayome.com/

The show is based on a manga by Kimura Tahiko that is serialized in Gangan Wing. Hopefully NeoSam will provide the covers when he sees the thread, otherwise I'll be spamming his PM! The director for the seires is going to be Kishi Seiji. Seto San will be voiced by Momoi Haruko (Halko) while Michishio Nagasumi will be voiced by Mizushima Takahiro. From the synopsis of the story, it does sound interesting. Here is the synopsis in the following taken from AniDB:
Nagasumi visits his grandmother near the sea during the summer. While visiting, he goes for a swim, and drowns right after entering the water. Fortunately for him he is saved by a young mermaid. Later as he tells the story to his family, a young girl named San appears at his home and begs Nagasumi to marry her.

She’s followed by two large thugs and they take both him and his parents to San`s home under the sea. If that wasn’t strange enough, it turns out San`s parents are mob bosses. Nagasumi is left with the choice of either death or marrying San. He chooses to marry a mermaid.

This would likely be that, except San`s father and some members of the mob are not exactly thrilled to have Nagasumi courting San and are determined to bring an end to their relationship--or him. And there is also the matter of keeping it a secret that San is a mermaid.





edit: (Jan 25) Updated VA cast info, thanks to Siegel Clyne. Also updated info regarding the director and the animation production companies.

edit 2: (Jan 26) Added website url, thanks to NeoSam!

Shinn x Lacus sounds? This will be just way too freaky if they use the same VAs for the anime...

I agree with Tug. The cast is old school which raises my interest in the show! Updated the opening post. Thanks Siegel Clyne!

She's there in all those covers...it's just hard to tell, because the character designs changed so radically.

It's pretty interesting: bishoujo > moe > loli. I'm happy the anime will use the initial designs though...at least more like in the middle. I only read the first two volumes of the manga, so can anyone tell me if most of this series becomes more comedic or more dark? Or more about romance?

I'm having trouble picturing her voice as Seto-chan...I always associate Halko with Nakahara Komugi, and that is just NOT what I'd imagined Seto sounding like. Still looking forward to seeing the anime though, since the manga had me laughing out loud.
