From the maker of Ranma this pair of movies is as disturbing as it is beautiful. An old Japanese legend says that if you eat the flesh of the mermaid you will live forever. It doesn’t say that only one in a thousand will live forever, that the others will either die horribly or turn into monsters.
These two movies are definitely not for the young or the tender of heart. The imagery while very beautiful is very disturbing. This is defiantly not a good one for the younger viewers. Stick to your midteen to adults and you will be fine.
