The bathroom scene and how it was considered a mini ocean was cute.

She lacks the evil aura necessary to summon the flames from hades. =P

Stomping pirate skeletons and hunting for treasure. A story straight out of pulp fiction, and all in a day's work for our heroines.

Marin, who supposedly is open and concerned about others, seems to fail to see how Urin is unhappy. Taking things closet to you for granted?

im afraid at the end of every eps, the 2 girls will transform and purify some sea creatures that turned evil, then the final eps is to fight the evil queen herself

will decide after eps 4 to continue with the series or not

I do agree that Umi Monogatari follows the formulaic conventions of many magic-girl shows, the girls transforms to fight the evil denizens and then blast or purify them. However, this particular shows goes beyond that.

I paid special attention at how episode three unfolded:

Personally, I find Umi Monogatari proposal far more engaging and friendly to approach.

there may be some extra twists after seeing the look on Urin's face in eps 4

The OP and ED are hypnotic. Very well done. The scene with Urin crying in the ED especially jumps out at me for how well it conveys an emotion and narrative outside the sorta 'this is the ED' scope of things, at the same time being enhanced by it.

Iunno. Maybe I'm stating the obvious? Maybe that one scene isn't really worth paying any particular attention to? But that shot of Urin's tears really touches me. Genuine, pure empathy towards genuine, pure tragedy. It is a story taking a certain path, and indeed Urin stomped and yelled when it didn't go the wayshe wanted it to, but in the end she still got so absorbed into the world of the narrative that all she could do was cry. Those are tears of something being lost. But then it makes Marin's smile at the end so beautiful. I can't really say I know what she is saying, but it paints a picture in my mind. The contrast between tears and a smile, about a story which has very obviously touched someone's life. There is some sort of meaning there, an essence of happiness which made the whole ordeal worthwhile; so through all the tears and struggle and sacrifice, the story is ultimately one of triumph. Just through that short series of images and music, that is the emotion the ED is able to communicate. I'm really astounded.

:P Iunno. As for the OP, it just kinda gives me the feeling that I want it to keep going and maybe skip the show proper altogether. lol.

I'm just talking about these now (after 3-4 episodes) 'cause the actual content has been less consistently compelling. Iunno. The fights already seem disappointingly generic. The characterization, while not shallow, is a little rough in execution. The deliberate appeals to my sense of cuteness make me feel a little awkward. It's all just less solid than the music. So admittedly, the OP/ED are what're keeping me watching. But, it rather seems that they will keep me watching for a long time. I'd probably say this is a good show. o_O

Does anyone know where to find any sites that are still blogging this? The sites I usually visit have stopped at episode 3 and it would be nice to read summaries and screens again. Let me make this clear, I am NOT asking for downloads.

I was about to drop this show, but ep4 rescued it for me. A little more ARIA-like. And with some more interesting development of the relationships.

It's really sad that this show isn't being subbed :'( It's not great but it certainly does deserve a few more fans than it has right now.
