Mermaid Forest

Mermaid Forest

AKA: Takahashi Rumiko Gekijou: Ningyo no Mori
Drama, Horror, Fantasy - 2003 (TV)
 
Ranking: 1138

According to an ancient legend, mermaids flesh can grant immortality if eaten. 500 years ago, Yuta unknowingly ate a piece of mermaids flesh. For centuries, he travels across Japan, hoping to find a mermaid, thinking she may be able to make him a normal human again. When he finally finds one, he discovers that she and her companions have been raising a girl to be their food so they can eat her and take on her youthful looks. That is how mermaids stay young. Yuta kills the mermaids and rescues her, but she has already eaten some of the mermaids flesh. Although he had to kill the mermaids, Yuta isnt too disappointed. Yutas once lonely existence is now over, as he has found a companion in Mana. And Mana, who had been trapped in a small hut her whole life, finds delight in even the simplest of things. Together, Yuta and Mana attempt to seek out more mermaids, trying to become normal humans again. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

Granted, it's got flaws. The art tends to vary in quality, becoming quite terrible at its worst, and the lack of a proper conclusion might bother some people, especially since this seems to be a trend in anime nowadays. That said, Mermaid Forest should be on the list of every horror fan's curriculum. - ThemAnime

    

As unfair as this sounds, it is not so bad. Eventually, you get to realize that one of the two main characters is simply playing a supporting role - and that is all you will ever get in terms of depth from this character. Now, this is not really a problem as this anime is, at best, a filler. I guess with more episodes, there would have been much more work put in. - MyAnimeList (kufreabia)
