    Cute freeloading merman moves into highschooler's bathtub. Fluffy light comedy ensues.
    Boom! Summarized the series right there. Tatsumi & Wakasa are both cute in their own way, and their interactions are great. I don't really know what else to say, and honestly there really isn't much else to say since the episodes are only four minutes long. Which is fine, the humor might be annoying instead of cute if the episodes were the usual twenty-five minutes, so right now it's perfect fluff.

    The Circumstances of the Circumstances of My Home's Bathtub
    (uselessly updated Oct. 2015)

    The Manga:
    Orenchi no Furo Jijo (The Circumstances in My Home's Bathtub) is based on a 4-panel (4-koma) manga series by Itokichi... originally in a shounen manga magazine published for girls. Yes, you read that correctly. (As of 2015, it's currently being published in English by Seven Seas.) I wouldn't have described it as a Boys' Love series by any means ...

    Turn that brain off and enjoy the cute, sparkly, satirical goofness.
    This series doesn't take itself seriously and has no issues making fun of its bizarre "plot", going the extra mile to include a completely misleading opening for pure irony's sake.

    It is a merman in a guy's bathtub. Is there really any more to say? Excellent short comedy - well drawn and animated, good voice acting, does a great service to its manga (4 panel short stories... like in ...

    Its a really funny, cute, short anime.
    I think that you watch this if you need something to make you laugh or make your day better. Its just a funny cute anime thats very light hearted and if your feeling bad or whatever just watch this, and its a short anime in terms of minutes per episode so it shouldn't be much of a bother for you just to watch this and see if you like it.

    「cute characters!!!」
    I was drawn to this because of a few reasons. 1. cute boys and 2. i saw some gifs on tumblr and the animation looked pretty good. The episodes are really short; 4 minutes including the opening and the entire ending, but it's was nice! It's a pretty easy to understand anime; boy saves merman and then lives with him, but surprise! Friends show up sometimes. The opening was the only thing that threw ...

    Worth the time to watch!
    Invest an hour of your time in this 13 episode series. Each episode is 4 minutes long and so adorable. I have never claimed so many people as my "children" in such a short amount of time. If you like mermen and humans with relatable personalities this is the show for you!

    SO DAYUM CUUUUUUUUUUUTE
    This is pure perfection: lovely art, characters, pacing. It's only about four minutes per episode, but it's enough time to introduce and fall in love with the entire cast. It doesn't take itself too seriously and gives off this relaxed vibe as if the entire world is just a big giant bubble bath. It's perfect as is.

    (Although I wouldn't mind if this series was longer. Or if they expanded that ...

    Very cute and funny.
    Hilarious! I really enjoyed watching this show. The characters are funny, and really cute! It's something completely different. While most animes are very serious, this one is the complete opposite. If you're sad, or just don't know what to do, this is the perfect anime for you. It cheers you up immediately!

    Funny in more ways than one
    Hmm...I did not know what to expect at first. What even drew me in? I think the fact a merman lives in a bathtub of a teenage boy. Their personalities couldn't be anymore different but their dynamic is cute and fun, The 4 minute clips left me wanting more but not completely unsatisfied.

    The characters throughout bring more fun and interest and I don't think one would be disappointed with this 4 ...

    Adorable and Light-Hearted with a Boys Love Twist
    This anime comes as advertised. It is not a hardcore yaoi, but rather a light-hearted BL with adorable characters and beautiful animation. While the episodes are short (4 minutes each), it still offers character development and a cute story. (It also offers the bonus of being too short for ads) If you want a comedy without the commitment of a 25 episode anime, then this is the show for you. You ...
