** This show is also very popular in Taiwan, to the point that there's more Mermaid Melody merchandise there than it's native Japan nowadays.

Added DiffLines:

*** In particular, the song "Assoluto Amore" (lit. "Absolute Love"), the replacement for "Return to the Sea", manages to capture Sara's character perfectly, being an ode to ThePowerOfLove [[LyricalDissonance sung to an angry melody with restrained anger]] and, near the end, subtly warning ''it can destroy the world''.[[note]]the lyrics are "L'Assoluto di un Amore può/cambiare i connotati al mondo". Literally it translates to "The Absolute of a Love can/change the world's face", but "cambiare i connotati" is usually an euphemism for "busting someone's face".[[/note]]

** The series is specially loved in Spain and Italy, where it is actually better remembered than more successful magical girl series like the mighty ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''.

** The series is specially loved in Spain and Italy, where it is actually better remembered than more successful magical girl series like the mighty ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''. The former is particularly notable by the sheer effort it was put in adapting the series, giving it a better than average dub for an anime and bringing professional singers to perform the music themes.



* {{Narm}}: The Baby/Coral Fairy from episode 36.

* {{Narm}}: {{Narm}}:
**
The Baby/Coral Fairy from episode 36.36.
** While significantly good overall, the Spanish dub sometimes has a hard time trying not to fall in TotallyRadical. The teenage lingo used for the dialogues was a bit outdated even by the time they distributed the anime in Spain, not to mention when one watches the series nowadays.



** The Italian dub. The voice acting is great, and the songs are possibly, even better than the Japanese ones. They completely substituted J-pop music for much more pop-rock, and rewritten the lyrics to match the new song.

* SnarkBait: Has this reputation among many modern manga readers, due to the similarities it has to something you'd see on DeviantArt.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This show has a surprising number of fans in Europe, which begs the question why no TV station wants to air the show anymore.

* HilariousInHindsight: The seven mermaid races share their colors with seven of the eight Fairy Tones from ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'', and given the whole idol shtick...
** Hell, there's even a love interest to one of the main characters voiced by Creator/DaisukeKishio.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Lady Bat, although officially male, causes a ''lot'' of confusion between fans.
** Probably justified (and probably invoked) because he's also a [[CreepyCrossdresser crossdresser]].

* {{Squick}}: Some see the fanservice as this, considering the series is still technically aimed to little girls.
