My Bride Is a Merman Who Lives in My Bathtub (Orenchi no Furo Jijo)

Tatsumi has a problem: His bride is a merman who lives in his bathtub. A humble re-telling of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's famous Rime of the Ancient Mariner, MerTub tries to adapt the epic poem in only 13 four minute episodes. With the Merman playing the albatross and his little sister playing Lady Death, will Tatsumi make it out of his bathroom alive to tell his tale?

The Idolm@ster Movie

The Idolm@ster Movie (pronounced "Idolmatster") was just one big ripoff of Yamakan's more popular and more loved Wake Up, Girls!. Starring young idols having young idol problems such as sleeping with too many managers and missing a period or two, The Idolmatster Movie is just more of that same thing you've seen before. But this time with terrible characters such as that one dog hater, that one man hater, the one that can talk to animals, and the twins. The only major difference between this movie and WUG! was that WUG! at least had the decency to put an alpaca in the background. Here all I see are lemons. It's like a metaphor (or something).
