FUNimation Swims with the Mermaids

FUNimation's new license smells a little...fishy!


Apparently FUNimation's earlier hint was as follows: the first letter of each sentence in the first paragraph spelled SETO. The next sentence started with YO, and the sentence following that offers the following as the first letter of each word: HANAYOME.


In other words, FUNi has licensed Seto no Hanayome, a wacky comedy about a guy who accidentally finds himself betrothed to a mermaid-- and not just any mermaid, but the daughter of a mermaid mafia don. FUNi has licensed the first season, which will be released in two box sets starting later this year-- under the title My Bride is a Mermaid.

I will never get used to that tile >_>

Awesome show though. Really funny stuff.

Personally I didn't enjoy it quite as much as most people apparently did... it just wasn't quite my taste of comedy is all. Though I might buy whatever volumes or packs come with Luna's papa.... he was absolutely hilarious in my book.

hmm interesting though Im curious about the setting as mermaid needs constant water
