I think there's like 10 or something chapters out for the manga. It's basically a comedy series using everyday gags (mixed with fantasy tropes) with a tone that is similar to slice of life. Anyways, expect this to be a short with the time slot there and station.

No, it's slice of life + Fantasy/Shoujo with comedy.

I'll give this show a look, but it's not likely to stick around for me seeing how fall is usually a busy time for me. That said, at least I found some BL goodness last season with Love Stage, so I'll keep my mind open about it.

Episode 1

So this is actually a short and given the studio, I should have figured as much. Anyway, so that's how the merman took up residence in the bathtub being found in the river. Given that he's from the sea that it's no wonder he wants clean water in the tub. Well, at least it's short, so I guess I might watch more of this for now.

Well, he does have a rubber duckie... that's hours of entertainment, right there! ^_^

I was kinda wondering what the story would be, too, since that dramatic OP made me think it was a normal length episode hehe!

Can't blame you. A rubber duckie in a pink bath would surprisingly keep a person company. XD

I thought it was really fun, despite it being a 4-10 minute series. Thankfully, I dealt with such shows like this (Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life for example, which was very good IMO).

Before going to buy him a hamburger, Tatsumi should ask what did he eat when he was at the river.
