Originally published as a three-chapter one shot story, it was given a short serialization run that managed to produce two volumes of material. Fair warning - this manga is pretty disturbing so view at your own risk.

Originally published as a three-chapter one shot story, it was given a short serialization run that managed to produce two volumes of material. That was thought to be the end of it. But in 2016, the series was granted a second serialization run, under the title ''School Mermaid 2'' continuing the story with more added twists to the mermaids.

Fair warning - this manga is pretty disturbing so view at your own risk.



* TheUnreveal: As this is the last story of the series, we never learn how the mermaid spell was created.

* ChristmasCake: [[spoiler: Noriko, so desperate to avoid this she willingly invokes the mermaid curse.]]
* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler: Noriko manages to kill an "M" mermaid which Misaki is able to cut flesh from and eat before Noriko reaches her who thinks that Noriko stole the one she loved from her. Turns out Misaki wanted someone ''else'' who had a name with the letter "M". Noriko just assumed she loved the same boy she did. Misaki calls her out on this stating she went crazy on her before she got the chance to explain. If that wasn't bad enough, time runs out before Misaki can share the mermaid flesh with her, causing Noriko to become a mermaid. Ironically one of the oldest victim of mermaid girls.]]

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: Neither Rekio nor Yui get the guy they wanted as Saori changed the letter on the mermaid she killed and had managed to kill a mermaid-fied Asami who appeared in front of her who had the correct letter, allowing Saori to steal the guy whom the two were after. However Saori now has to live with the knowledge she had unwittingly gotten Asami killed (As she planted the notebook in the locker Reiko and Yui were using, knowing their heated rivalry). She only intended to embarrass Yui however and didn't think Asami would be dragged into the hunt. If that wasn't bad enough, the boy she stole the two from reveals ''he was in love with Asami''. Ouch.]]
* FalseFriend: Played both ways here. Yui is the more deliberate example, selfish and mean but acts caring to get what she wants. But the girls of her school consider her very lucky, so Saori hangs around her in the hope her luck will rub off on her. A fact Yui is all too aware of.

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: In an interesting sense, in the last story one of the characters surmises that the reason the mermaids will sometimes go on the attack is that they can feel if someone who enacted the spell truly does love a boy and doesn't need the flesh of a mermaid to get him to return their feelings. As such they become jealous of that person and try to kill them because they know they're stuck by the spell's curse and can never have that kind of affection because they tried to take the easy way out through the spell rather then simply come out with their feelings. This might be why they're constantly smiling for potential victims, [[StepfordSmile they're not really genuine]] as if they're ''hoping'' for their pursers to fail. In fact, a sign they're about to turn feral is when they ''don't'' do this, meaning they sense a girl's true affection for a boy.]]
