Go To

Mahou no Mako-chan is an early Magical Girl Anime loosely based on The Little Mermaid, created by Toei Animation's planning team.

Mako is a young mermaid who one day rescues a handsome young man named Akira from drowning in a shipwreck and promptly falls in love with him. In order to be with her beloved, she convinces the Witch of the Sea to turn her into a human, becoming Ordinary High-School Student Mako Urashima.

The rest of the series follows Mako in her new life on dry land as she makes friends, learns about the human world, and solves problems with the help of her magical pendant given to her by her Overprotective Dad, Ryuu-oh the King of the Sea.
