    I mainly liked this OVA, but there are a few criticisms. Con: Now, I knew it would be quick, but the story does end up feeling rushed. There's a lot that happens in such a brief video, it makes me believe it might've been better if it was longer. It can also be choppy, and overwhelming with all the stuff on screen. And it's full of cheese. Now, I like cheesy things, but if you don't, you probably won't like this OVA. Pros: It's so beautiful - I kept getting lost in the style and backgrounds. It's seriously one of the most visually gorgeous anime videos I've seen. And it does have a very sweet story. It's a casual yet endearing video. Overall, I wouldn't spend money on it (because I'm cheap), but if you have money to spare and nowhere else to watch it, I say go for it!

    This Boy Caught a Merman is the sweetest 30 minute OVA I have ever had the please to watch. I laughed and cried and was so overjoyed at how it ended. Although I prefer the sub, it never took away from my enjoyment. There is no sex; just some cuddling and some adorable boy love.
