About This Boy Caught a Merman Blu-ray

This Boy Caught a Merman is the second anime OVA of Soubi Yamamoto's Kono Danshi (This Boy) project.

They say look before you leap and make sure you can swim before you go in the deep water, but when a picture of his late grandfather falls into the ocean, Shima jumps in after it without thinking. Nearly drowning as a result, he is instead saved by a very perfect stranger... one whose strangeness extends to only being human from the waist up!

For Shima, who's always felt like a fish out of water himself, it's more than just a revelation, and the young man and merman quickly begin to bond in ways neither anticipated. And yet, it's going to be far from easy sailing. After all, Shima and Isaki aren't just from opposite sides of the tracks, they're from entirely divergent species, and swimming in separate gene pools may make maintaining a long term relationship a whole different kettle of fish!

Beautiful and sweet!


While some have said the animation looks iffy, using thought it was pretty and artistic. The bold colors really made it pop! The story was enough to keep me entertained, and Scarborough at points to make me feel for the characters. If you like shone air, then this is great for you!

A decent tale between a boy and a merman


Yaoi is a genre that I really don’t have much experience with. I have more experience and quite enjoy yuri but yaoi is a different story. I’m not against it but it just doesn’t appeal to me much. Maybe I just need to find a good one. With this ova, it ain’t bad. It had a certain charm and appeal to it, but felt off for me. Even though the story pace felt right, the emotional side and feelings felt rushed. I liked the psychological conflict with the main character being what others want and what he wants and it hit close to home. I’m not sure what it was but this whole ova just didn’t feel complete to me. Maybe it would have been better if it were longer to really portray these characters. I did like the art style and animation though. It’s always nice seeing different styles from the norm. Overall, this ova is decent. Not the best that I’ve seen, but I’m not disappointed that I got this.
