|Title (English)||Mako the Mermaid|
|Title (Japanese)||Maho no Mako-chan||Advertising|
|Notes||From a manga by URAGAWA Shinobu, serialised in Shoujo Comic magazine. BTW Uragawa is supposed to be the pseudonym for the producer or director of
The anime was aimed at the girls who had seen "Sally" and "Akko-chan".
|Synopsis||Maho no Mako-chan is about a mermaid, who fell in love with a man and decided to leave the ocean forever and become a human. So she lives as an ordinary girl and is searching for her beloved, Akira. It's a typical shojo and it's a little like soap opera for girls. (Barret)
In each episode, some kind of trouble happens around Mako, and she solves the problem with her magic pendant.
|Review||Seems to be a magical-girl story. Mako looks about 18 and has some younger and rather lowlife friends. She has a magical disc hung from a string about her neck.
In fact, Maho is 15, and it seems the target audience, who had previously seen "Sally" and "Akko-chan" were about the same age.
