Is the sea in your eyes?

This series is just magical - from beginning to end. I always enjoy it when you can see the ordinary with fresh eyes - how would an otherworldly creature view us? What would something we deem mundane look like to an alien being? From having to cook our food, to our mating rituals - just watching us being observed by Li Ren Yu (the bossiest merman in history) takes this show somewhere special. I cannot even begin to describe what a fun ride this show is - you'll laugh (a lot), you'll cry (a little) but, all in all, a good time is almost guaranteed. Oh, and just keep watching after the words "The End" pops up on screen - it just next levels the whole shebang! Two very, very enthusiastic thumbs up!

And yeah - "Is the sea in your eyes an actual question" that's asked in the series...and it is a beautiful moment.

A Fun Bromance

Overall: although it would have been better as an actual BL, this was enjoyable overall

Content Warnings: side character death, fight scenes, near death

What I Liked
- the chemistry and dynamic between the 2 male leads was great (hence why I think it would have been better as a BL)
- the intro animation sequence was good
- the funny moments
- the merman as an adorable thug (did not think I'd put those two words together, but just look at his dimples!)
- a montage scene that I actually liked

Room For Improvement
- I know it had source material but I think they should have made this actual m/m romance because the two male leads had such great chemistry. Many things have been straightwashed so I think they should have gaywashed this one.
- lack of consequences for both that high school guy and the 2 adults and that things were just totally good between the son and his dad
- there was a continuity error in the first episode
- cliche family stuff at the beginning
