    I...what? What did I just watch?
    My title pretty much sums it up. I've got no clue what I just watched. Anyways, I saw the summery of this anime and was thinking "Oh. This is going to be some Shonen Ai/Yaoi type anime." And...to be honest, after watching the first episode, I'm confused. Rewatching it a second time didn't really give me anymore answers and left me just scratching my head. I donno if it's more of a weird Slice of ...

    Cuuteee, this will be one of the best
    I can't wait for more. <333333

    Heard the manga was really good too, might have to read it sometime! I, a fellow mermaid, will enjoy this. Eeheehee =3=

    I do wish the episode was longer though, minutes does seem a little short. I hope they will be longer.

    Still not sure what I just watched.
    A couple episodes in, I'm still entirely confused as to what this show is.
    Is it fantasy, is it yaoi? Shonen-Ai?
    Is it just a clingy, homeless fish-man in a bathtub?

    While the length of the episodes (approximately 4 minutes) doesn't allow very much back story for the characters. It does make for a good time killer if you find yourself looking to occupy a few minutes.

    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 ...

    This is so great!!!!!
    I'm in love with this series. It's perfect comedy wise, I just wish the episodes were longer. Even though the episodes are short for my liking, I'm still fully engaged! This is perfect for winding down~ The animation is wonderful, it's not lacking in the art department at all.

    That is one sexy octopus
    I'll be concise: this series is fun, short, weird, cute and heavy on the homosexual innuendo. Not for those looking for substance. Also: the octopus is super hot. Only watch this series if you can wrap your head around that notion. You've been warned.

    Cute and Sexy and leaves me smiling
    OK, true, it's pretty homo-erotic, but I don't care. It's fun to watch cute boys being cute together. The opening is really cool and dark with great rock music - but it has nothing to do with the "meat" of the episodes which are super-cute and fun and always leave me smiling. Even though the episodes are short, 4 minutes of smiling can make your cheeks hurt. Owww my face.
