Tatsumi (龍己) Voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki Tatsumi is a high school student who found Wakasa drying out by a river and took him in, thinking he was hurt. He was shocked to find out he was a merman, but decided to let him stay in his bathtub. While usually cool and shy, he's gotten used to living with Wakasa and all his other friends. Wakasa (若狭) Voiced by: Yuichiro Umehara Wakasa is a merman, who was originally living in a heavily polluted river by the upstream dam. As it became too troublesome to live in that area, since rumors about mermaid sighting had started to go around, he decided he had to leave this place and was soon found stranded by Tatsumi, who invited him to live in his comfortable, clean bathroom. Takasu (鷹巣) Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki Takasu is an octopus merman who likes to check on Wakasa, and the two of them seem to have been friends from before Tatsumi met Wakasa. Takasu likes climbing into small spaces like Tatsumi's washing machine. Kasumi (霞) Voiced by: Ibuki Kido Tatsumi's little sister. She loves her brother a lot and considers Wakasa her rival for Tatsumi's affection. Mikuni (三国) Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae A jellyfish merman who can split himself into many smaller versions and administer electric shocks. He has an easygoing personality and has wanderlust so he tends to move around a lot. Maki (真木) Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda Maki is a sea snail merman who Tatsumi saved from some bullying children. Maki normally has a self-deprecating, negative personality, but a little kindness brings out a bright, happy snail from his (literal and figurative) shell. Agari (安賀里) Voiced by: Yuri Chinen Agari is a big shark merman rumored to be the model for the movie Jaws. He is referred to as “senpai” (an older person, usually of higher rank or just deeply respected by the person using this term) by Wakasa because sharks are the top among the fish. Although Agari looks scary, he is actually rather shy. He hides underneath the water with only his fin visible because he is too nervous to speak, mainly because he often ends up scaring people when he opens his mouth and flashes his many sharp teeth. Therefore, he uses body language to communicate instead. Gorōmaru (五郎丸) A starfish merman, who is a younger acquaintance of Wakasa. He likes children and has a really sticky body. Sōsuke (聡介, Sōsuke) A friend and classmate of Tatsumi. He does not know that his friend is living with a merman. Duck-chan (アヒルちゃん, Ahiru-chan) Voiced by: Yoshihisa Kawahara A rubber duck that stands in the bathroom of Tatsumi's home. It also serves as a narrator role in the anime.
