Holly's manga review: 'Princess Mermaid'

See also



“Princess Mermaid” is a twisted retelling of “The Little Mermaid” by Junko Mizuno. Tara, Julie and Ai lure unsuspecting sailors to their home in order to eat them. They also wage war against a family owned company that hunts and eats mermaids. However, things change when Julie falls in love with Suekichi, a human worker. She wants to become human, but her sister Tara will have none of it. Will Julie and Suekichi have their happy ending?

It’s another awesome Junko Mizuno manga that has a plausible happy ending that makes sense for the “Little Mermaid”. The author should have empathized the face that while Tara may have gotten revenge, it was won at the expense of her relationship with her sisters. Tara’s fate is tragic, but it’s an understandable result of her own actions. The artwork is wonderfully cute and twisted. Honolulu Junko Mizuno fans should buy this manga.
