both of the story do not end in the perfect happy ending, but i believe they found their own happiness. the stories is like a dream, melancholic and wistful, leaving a mark after it end. truly a good read.

I was listening to the song that inspired Mizushiro Setona to create this manga, and it was just...really beautiful. I really felt the atmosphere of the whole story. There's this boy who's in love, but he's never lovesick. I never felt that his love for Tatsuki was ever obsessive or wrong. He just wanted Tatsuki to be happy, nothing more. There was never the whole "he-loves-someone-else" angst vibe going on that the original fairytale gave off. I really appreciated that.

For the first time, I'm looking at "The Little Mermaid" and I really feel the pureness of the protagonist. He's truly innocent, without being overly cute or overly simple.

I disagree that this story was a "straight pull" from the original fairytale. It's not. This version fleshes out the character of the "mermaid". We get to see the feelings, the motivation behind the person. I think it's a beautiful piece of work---a modern day fairy tale.

The oneshot included was quite nice too. I liked "Mister Mermaid" better, but I appreciated the second story. The ending was lovely.

It ends sadly, and I can see why, i mean it's not as if he's dead, but the merman(maid?) knew the boundaries, and he knew that he was something like a rebound, but he was happy. I know the guy loves the girl but it's so cute in the end...I just hope there could be a sequel

Mister Mermaid

There's certainly nothing new about this story, as it's a straight pull from Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, but something about Mizushiro's masterly storytelling makes it feel fresh. Mister Mermaid has a dreamy, ethereal atmosphere throughout, with the merman wafting over the lives of those he meets and disappearing like ocean mist. His delicate transience contrasts with their realistic troubles.

I like that this story doesn't end with the blissful fluff most shounen-ai falls prey to. I like that it acknowledges that het happens. In fact, if this story ended happily for everyone, I'd feel seriously cheated.

Mister Mermaid may be dreamy, but nothing is more dreamlike than the short story in this volume. It's strange and obscure and deep - and consequently almost beautiful.

I was pleased because the story actually follows the fairy tale that it's inspired by, the Little Mermaid. Maybe the art is a little bit old school but this didn't bothered me. I loved it. Very poetic and beautiful.

did i read the same story? what is cute about the mermaid going through so much trouble and in the end
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Tatsuki chooses to be with the ugly bitchy prostitute, are you kidding me? one minute he is gay and sleeping with the mermaid and then he is in love with the girl that lives with him... and whats with the mermaid? he says he wants the guy to be happy with the girl and yet why does he have sex with him??

This story was beautiful - a true love story. The merman's love for the man he saved was so powerful and subtle. The characters were imperfect, human, believable. It broke my heart.
My only reason for no 10, is because although the sex scene was delicate and brought a lump to my throat, it wasn't nearly long enough.

As for the second story, I'm not sure I understand it. Anyone want to email me and clarify what is was exactly that the 16th Mr.Silver did for Mr.White? I'm dense sometimes. . .

Simply beautiful. And no, it is NOT boring at all, unless you're a person who likes more depth to the story than just sex, sex, sex. The romance between the two boys are very bittersweet. The art isn't ugly, just a little older, but your eyes get used to it and you can find the characters visually apealling, especially the protaganist. He's adorable. A beautiful story, and a definate read for true shounen-ai/yaoi fans.

It was okay...

I didn't find the story bland OR boring. I thought it had a bit more story to it than most yaoi/shonen ai, because it wasn't just "boy meets boy, OMG lovelovelove" It had a bit more depth to it than that. Still, I wouldn't say it was fantastic... but it was okay. I agree, though, that X-Day is a far better work from this author.

The side story, "Undying Illness", was kind of... odd. I'm not entirely sure I understood it, to be honest.
