Question drowned people, mermaids, aquatic creatures

What the title says. I mean fantasy stuff, also urban legends, contemporary fantasy, maybe horror or thriller, not a story about dolphins.
Lovecraftian sea creatures are also a good offer. Water demons, etc. Thanks in advance.

Well, Seto no Hayanome prominently features mermaids. It's a bit of a modern fantasy, a bit romance, but mostly screwball comedy with light ecchi.

I haven't seen it myself, but Mermaid Forest sounds like it would fit what you're looking for from reviews I've seen some years ago.

you could try Bakemonogatari. doesnt really focus onwater creatures but it does pretty heavily focus on Japanese Urban Legends and curses. plus its just an overall great show.

The second arc of Mononoke ("Umebouzu") is probably right up your alley.

A bit less obviously relevant, Real Drive is about "diving" into "The Metal," a cyber-construct that is the equivalent of the ocean. It's hard to explain so you'll need to watch a couple of episodes.

Water spirits play a major role in the plot of Seirei no Moribito, but the main characters are all human.

Serius no Densetsu
It is a fusion of Romeo & Juliet with The Little Mermaid in a very psychedelic aquatic world. Plus, appearances are deceiving because it is not for kids.

Mermaid Forest (anime series).- It has mermaids, fantasy and horror. Supposedly in this tale if you ate mermaid meat you would become immortal.Follows the story of a guy and a girl that are trying to become mortal again.

This will be the closest match to what you are looking for IMO.

Second Mermaid Forest... and I'll add Ponyo.

Ah, and there was that recent Umi Monogatari.
