Orenchi no Furo Jijou, also known as Orefuro, is a comedy anime series based on Itokichi’s original manga. As the story is still ongoing (since 2011), the show will adapt only a part of it, but everything looks almost too promising for the otaku who enjoy good-looking guys, funny moments and…mermen.
Orefuro begins on 6th October 2014!
The story revolves around Tatsumi, a normal high school student who one day accepts an odd guest to his house. His new roommate is actually a pretty merman named Wakasa. Starting from the moment Wakasa enters Tatsumi’s life and starts living in his bathtub, the high school student’s entire world changes and becomes a chaotically entertaining mix of supernatural beings and beauty.
