Lucia Nanami is a mermaid princess who lives in the North Pacific Ocean.

She is the designated Bearer of the Pink Pearl, but she's lost it. Seven years ago she rescued a boy from a sinking ship, lost the pearl, but also lost her heart. She missed her coming-of-age ceremony last year because she didn't have her pearl, so she needs to find it in order to become officially adult; but she also wants to find the boy, so she heads for a city on the coast. Passing for human, she soon meets her first love, but he's such a cocky, flirtatious guy that at first she doesn't recognize him. Kaito Domoto is a surfer, all-round athlete and babe magnet, but with a very arrogant attitude. Lucia registers at his school to be closer to him, but if she falls in love with a human and tells him how she feels, she'll die.

This modern take on Little Mermaid has another twist. Sea monsters led by the evil Gaito are attacking the mermaid kingdoms. The magical power of the colored pearls can transform the princesses into Singing Divas with enough power to defeat the sea monsters. If Lucia stays in the human world to be with Kaito, she can't join in the battle.

Supposedly based on a manga by screenwriter Michiko Yokote and Pink Hanamori in Nakayoshi magazine, some of MM's comic situations are a little obvious-for instance, Lucia is chosen to play the lead in a class performance of Little Mermaid, only to have water imps threaten to expose her as a real mermaid. But, as with the original, there's pathos in this story. The idea that a cute girl with a heartfelt song can save the world, or that you can love someone enough to give him up or die for him, is still as corny and as touching as it was when Macross premiered. The second series, MMPPP Pure, followed straight on in 2004.
