Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch 3Posted: April 1, 2007
I should’ve written these ones first, I would rather have the awesome Tenjho Tenge reviews at the top of the page.
So the plot does advance in this volume, the characters finally go down to face off with the main bad guy on his own turf. They also meet a fourth mermaid princess, Caren, who doesn’t hang out with them and kind of hates them at the first. They manage to free the captured mermaids (which includes Caren at that point, her twin Noel, and another mermaid), but the only thing we get out of this is that Caren finally likes them… and I guess they know the power in believing in themselves now.
There are some better Lucia/Kaito moments, and she lets him see her as a mermaid once again. I would think that he would recognize her face, but I guess that’s not the case. If my suspicions are correct, we have now met all 7 mermaids, though two of them (or maybe just one) still doesn’t have a name and pretty much just stayed around in the castle to get captured again. I think the first story arc ends in the next volume, so I’m not sure if the remaining volumes have another story… maybe the Pure story?
I actually like the plot of this series a lot, and I like that singing plays a big part (even though it doesn’t make sense that they transform into idols)… it’s just not very well done.
