June Manga and Kamo-sensei bring us an aquatic fantasy filled with quirky characters and outrageous plot details that nonetheless hits all the right buttons. While Kanan is being encouraged to develop a spine, we get a romantic comedy drama of a romp, the likes of which I haven't had since Splash. But if you're expecting Splash, forget it. This is BL, and while the mermaid schtick is somewhat the same in terms of certain conventions, the plot gets turned on its head and swiveled 180 degrees by adhering to the "selfish and egotistical seme pushes his uke about but with good intentions" routine familiar to many fans of the genre. So nothing new element wise, but refreshingly done in how it is all packaged together. Art wise, we get a visual feast, with pointy chinned and occasionally large eyed, pretty faced men to gaze at. The panels are uncomplicated and uncluttered, with simple layouts. Looking at it artistically and knowing the plot, one can see it is intended to be an uncomplicated fun read and in this, it doesn't disappoint. It is high quality lightweight entertainment with enough B x B action to garner this an 18+ rating and just enough plot to keep it off the pure smut-ometer. The fun continues over to volume 2, which concludes the series

Kanan has a boyish face and gets picked on often because of his tiny figure. But, things change when his gets neighbor turns out to be a merman, and the king on the seas at that!?! Despite the king's selfish and rude pretense, he tries to booster Kanan's self esteem. Kanan wants to thank the merman for his support, but in what way? Nabako Kamo brings you a hot love comedy between a merman and a human.
