Am I the only one who's linking "being taken away by the mermaid" to suicide by drowning and finding this really dark?...

Well, on one hand, she's sad because she thinks Shou likes that mermaid more than her...

... but, on the other hand, she wasn't accused of sekuhara, after all! Every cloud has a silver lining, right? (⁰͡ ͜ʖ⁰͡ )

You're definitely not the only one. The series has a very eerie and kind of surreal feeling to it, I have a strange inkling of a notion that it's not supernatural but instead the mother drowned. I really hope the story doesn't end in total heart break.

My working theory now is that dad's drunken joke made a traumatizing impact on her. Little kids aren't good at getting jokes...

Don't lean on me by The Amity Affliction plays in background "let the ocean take me"

I can’t recall the titles at the moment, but this is at least the third or fourth “do mermaids actually exist, or is this person nuts?” yuri manga series I’ve seen.

Not that I mind, but the theme definitely seems to be a thing.

This and this.

(also a zillion Disney movies and TV shows, though those aren't yuri)

Yes, right—thanks. (And those are distinct from the “there are actually mermaids” supernatural ones.)

"You see you were born from my butt"
I'm not sure anyone gonna be happy to hear that. But not gonna lie the dad took me by a surprise usually when you saw drunkin dad in anime/manga without a mom some dark stuff tend to happen but i kindda love how this manga went. It just different than the ones we tend to get and some how close and easy to relate.

Translator said that this was taken from Chinese translation right? This is a common saying for "the stork dropped you off at our doorstep". If I'm wrong, woops.

It's a little refreshing to see how gay Koumoto is. She's so deeply aware of her feelings that she's afraid of all her actions being misconstrued when Segawa thinks literally nothing of it all, but it's like, Koumoto wants more and lusts + love Segawa but doesn't want to do anything to jeopardize their relationship which, mood.

In any case, I think most mangakas don't have the luxury of slow pacing because they never know if it'll be popular enough to not be axed, so I appreciate the pace because at the very least we might get to the end quicker.

Exactly, I relate so much to it and it's refreshing and nice to see it portrayed in this way.

God, this chapter was one "she smells nice" away from a kiss scene with how gay it was. Also, I'll reread this series again, but what is it wuth Ibu-san and glasses girl (Forgot jer name, sorry)? Do they both like Umi or something? Either way, I kinda ship them, bu I'll have to reread it to confirm it. Excited to see volume 2

The series could end right here, and I think I'd be okay with it. Especially since something about this just screams tragedy
