    What a fishy circumstance!
    Hahaha, I'm really enjoying this anime a lot! The fact that it's a merman instead of a mermaid, makes it pretty funny because many would think that just by seeing the cover - there's a fish tail, so it must be a mermaid! xD
    The short episodes make for an enjoyable experience if you're looking for some light comedy and just something to do if you have a few minutes to spare.
    The characters are ...

    Unexpectedly Adorable
    There's a real mismatch between the mood of the show's opening theme and the cute almost anecdotal episodes. Otherwise, the show is fun and light hearted with an interesting cast and enough happening to keep you engaged for the short episode run time.
    Certainly there is nothing earth shattering here but that's okay.

    Short episodes, but very cute!
    Discovered this completely by accident and was immediately hooked! I wish the episodes were actual show-length instead of just shorts, but it works well as a miniseries and the characters are all delightful. Fingers crossed crunchyroll keeps on finding gems like this!

  • Super cute show about a boy and his merman roomate!
    I'm not usually one for boys-love manga or anime, but this is more like two awkward friends that happen to have man crushes on each other. Super cute, and very funny. Mostly innocent jokes, nothing too overtly sexual.

    The extended cast of sea people is creative and ridiculous at the same time. Always a good episode when one of the other sea creatures shows up for a visit.

  • Almost a harem anime, but so much cuter!
    I found this completely by accident here on Crunchyroll. I saw many different "edgy" looking anime, then this appeared. I wrote my thoughts up on my website, however to summarise this series in just a few words:

    This is an adorable series, with amazingly cute chibi-inspired art moments. With a cast of colourful and fun sea-people who make themselves known, Wakasa might be a breath of fresh air ...

  • So insanely bizarre that you have to like it
    I read a review of this somewhere online and so had to try it, especially since the episodes are so short. It's insanely bizarre and I've never seen anything like it. There's really not much of any kind of plot or character growth or really any kind of story going on, but it's enjoyable to watch even so.

    Merman & friends take over the life of an unassuming and kind guy and hijinks follow. ...

  • Better Than I Expected
    Well. I was told that this was a show of a hot merman in a hot guy's tub. And.... that is what I got haha. It's a pretty funny show though. The OP is beyond misleading that I actually laugh everytime I see it. This show is light and funny, and short. A good 4 min laugh per episode. There are shounen ai and brocon undertones so if you're uncomfortable with that, this might not be your cup of tea. ...
