The legend has it that once upon a time, a pact was sealed between the Shinto priest of the town of Amide and a mermaid. Ever since, abundant fishing has guaranteed the town’s prosperity. This pact has always been honored by the priests of the Yashiro family. However, the legend has attracted both media and property developers, and the acting priest has acceded to their demands. Yosuke, youngest of the Yashiro family, has doubts about the existence of the mermaid, but will soon change his opinion as strange occurrences begin to unfold…

Don't judge a book by it's cover.

I've always been on the look-out for mermaid-related stories and the summary of this manga intrigued me.

Being more of a shoujo, josei (and *cough*cough* smut) fan, I was pretty surprised at how much I actually enjoyed reading this manga.

The artwork is pretty good albeit old school (well, my definition of old school, anyways) and although it's not as pretty as the ones I'm used to, it's better than most of the manga I've read so far.

The plot's amazing. I only wish that this was longer than the mere 6 chapter. That being said, each chapter is just so tantalizing - taunting it's readers with the little glimpses of what's next to come.

It's refreshing to be able to read something like this. Not too deep, dark or disturbing. Simply PERFECT

Although quite short and seemingly rushed towards the end, I really enjoyed this--not just as a manga, but as a story. As stated previously, it is atmospheric and suspenseful (perhaps, overall, it was even a bit too suspenseful when compared to the tranquil opening of the story). The author knows how to maintain a perfect balance in tickling one's curiousity and fear, and the art is beautiful and affecting in its style, arrangement, and conduct. I only wish it were longer. The author had plenty more room to explore (in both its story and themes).

This is a bit deeper and necessitates more patience than your average manga, but some (including myself) may consider these good attributes. I can only recommend reading this all at once; it is a very purging story.

Only two chapters, but already atmospheric and full of suspence. I look forward to more chapters.
