  • Stupid But Still Great
    Literally the show can be summed up in 7 words: A merman lives in this guy's bathtub. I wasn't really a fan of the opening and the storyline is really dumb yet I find it so hilarious. The chibi-styles and the witty remarks made by the freeloader merman made me chuckle. I don't think they could have pulled this off as a full-length anime with long episodes and was successful in their goal: complete ...

  • You must watch this! So lighthearted and fun!
    A merman moves into a young man's bathtub, bringing his cheerful spirit along with him. He brightens the life of the man who took him in, and has a lot of whimsical fun every day. Other characters, such as an octopus, a conch, and a jellyfish also visit on occasion. The setting of almost the entire anime is in this bathroom, specifically the bathtub. You will love this anime; it does nothing but ...

  • Aquarium by any other name.
    Nice light easy to enjoy episodes, full of joy and happiness.

    The episode plots are very simple to allow them to cover them in a 4 minute window, but they are enjoyable, and is interesting how the friendship builds from one episode to the next.

    As you can watch the entire series inside of an hour, it is worth a watch, and it it is not to your taste you still have not wasted a lot of time. ...

  • Warning: Fluff. Cavity-inducing sweetness.
    Fluff, fluff, and more fluff!

    It's so fluffy I'm gonna cry!

    It's a pretty basic premise, merman takes over guy's tub, adores meat, runs up various bills, but they get along fairly well. Guy is pretty relaxed about it and seems to find the situation rather amusing more than anything else. It's a super short series, about 4 minutes an episode, and you meet various friends of Wakasa, as well as ...

  • Weird, Cute, and Short
    A show doesn't always have to do anything new to be special, even if I'm not entirely sure what a show might be going for when it airs. Just because it's a well-constructed hamburger doesn't make it bad hamburger, even if the seeds in the bun are a little odd.

    "Orenchi no Furo Jijo" might be short-form and never really goes anywhere, and it might be a gay series without actually containing any ...

    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 ...

    「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 ...
