The art left me breathless and at times i`d take a minute to stare at just one page. >.< Others don`t like the costume especially the wigs but in truth, it was `in` or fashionable during those times. The countless changes of dresses and wigs makes Evy look different every time but also reflects historical culture of that era. The story was well spun and of course the dark intrigue of royal courts is overflowing. The characters were everything I could ask for: the queen was a beauty and she actually shows how far women of power would go just to keep their status. Charlotte was a serious b**ch but very crafty, indeed. Owen...I find his feelings confusing. Is he in love with Evyione? or is it just a matter of adoration, respect and duty? Evy was a mysterious character, I admit. A flamboyant and arrogant princess. Her life has been the center of much talk and rumors but how come when....

Yashin kisses her she suddenly changes?
was it too show her innocence under all that elegant facade? Another character I could not comprehend was Yashin. True, when Evy said that 'Is that gaze full of lust or love?', I had the same thoughts. A powerful sea king of myths is suddenly willing to endure the pain, humiliation and helplessness of being a human just to make Evy fall in love with him? Also, there`s much little interaction between them. His inhuman beauty and strength is charming but he is branded as a prostitute? WTH. Anyways, the playboy duke (who`s name I dont remember), I can`t hate him despite his vulgar personality. And the other guy (Evy is so lucky to have a harem of varied men), Fidelis, little has been said about him except the fact that this hot guy who got Evy`s heart beating was a

. What`s exciting is who among the four will succeed in winning Evy`s heart. The story makes it sound so complicated but in actually, Evy is your typical princess whose heart is a prize for men of every background and character. Overall, the charm of the story is the setting and of course, the fashion. Worth the time reading and waiting for the release. Just, not so addictive.
Very pretty but overly complex
Absolutely stunning art, but there's way too much about the personal and political intrigue of European nobility and not enough about the hot merman and his princess crush. Going on four translated volumes and there's about nineteen featured characters plotting against each other and a LOT of different dress designs, plus a smidgeon of interaction between guy and girl. Is there seriously ten volumes of this? I want to like this more than I do because I love the fairytale, it looks so good (especially when the merman first transforms, gorgeous), and some of the intrigue is interesting, but it's so slow-going that it's a struggle. I hope the plotting gets a little tighter soon. But give it a shot, just for the art.
As with many of the other commentators, I find the artwork to be breathtaking. Some of the splash pages (no pun intended) of the merman are just... so beautiful that it should be a sin to lay eyes upon it.
We all know the storyline. But will she choose the human suitor, or the merman? Depends on which version of the fairy tale we're talking about. I really hope it goes like the Disney version. ><

hehe like the reverse of The Lil' Mermaid XD lol and much more ...umm realistic since the lil' mermaid seemed kinda stupid to me ~ no offense....
Beautiful story so far.. i totally recommend it!
The artwork is very very beautiful and the story is fantastic and original to. First ever time a turn around worked in my favour, all we need now is the male angels going after the female humans.
I give this 10 out of 10

The art is defiantly breath taking, and although the plot is certainly interesting, its not entirely 'original', since its based off the little mermaid, and I have seen many other non-manga adaptions where the roles are reversed. However, how the mangaka portrays the characters, and how she does things is certainly a breath of fresh air.
Very interesting so far, but I can only give it a 9/10 since it doesn't captivate me. Its merely very interesting in a passing sort of way.
Just like the Ocean..
It sucks you in, just like a rip current Making you wait breathlessly for the next one, the one after that, and the one after that Beautiful. Gorgeous. Amazing. Breathtakig

Heroine gets raped and then a day later is all like "even though I was filled with anger and thought of him as detestable, now when I see his eyes, that look to be in as much pain as I, I can't hate him". The guy in question basically broke into her room to make a apology for raping her while acting like he was gonna rape her, and she be gettin wet for that shit.
I must say, as time went by, Kim Young Hee improved a lot! The drawings, the plot, the chemistry..pretty good so far! Oh man, has her art work improved..The sea king's beauty is so well defined..lol hot-damn
so many freakin' thumbs up
oooomyygooddnesss. i usually do not like the main beautiful guys in long hair, but jesus christ. the art is so gorgeous. i hope this isn't a tragedy. but then i kind of hope it doesn't end entirely happy happy.
