Jeg elsker havfruer, sådan, virkelig knuselsker havfruer, de er mit yndlings mytologiske væsen og da jeg var lille var mit største ønske at blive en. Det er derfor ikke nogen overraskelse at 12-årige Kristines yndlings manga var Mermaid Melody, Pichi Pichi Pitch. Nogen af mine bedste minder om Arto er de tre klubber jeg havde som handlede om Mermaid Melody, hvilket siger lidt om mit niveau af engagement, haha.
“Lucia Nanami, the mermaid princess of the North Pacific Ocean, sets out to land to find the boy she saved from atsunami wave seven years before the beginning of the story, to whom she fell in love and had entrusted her pink pearl. She eventually finds the boy: a surfer named Kaito Dōmoto. However, Kaito does not recognize Lucia in her human form. She cannot directly tell Kaito who she really is; otherwise, according to mermaid legend, she would turn into bubbles. Lucia tries to convince Kaito into figuring out who she really is (since the legend doesn’t say anything about the other person discovering a mermaid’s true identity by himself).
At the same time, Lucia has been told that a group of water demons have invaded the sea world and she must gather six other Mermaid Princesses and their pearls to bring back the legendary goddess Aqua Regina to stop them. To fulfill this, she joins forces with Hanon and Rina, the Mermaid Princesses who came up to dry land, use their pearls, turn into singing teen idols, and use their voices as an offensive power.”
