There Are No Mermaids In This Town

Rated: Safe

Yoshizaki Erina just transfered into town and is generally avoided by her classmates because of her taciturn nature until Toyoda tries to approach the girl. Like Miman’s last story, the ending is kinda vague…

Also check out Fragmented Hollow for some nice Touhou stories.

    Wow, what a super vague ending. At least with Ipheion I felt like there was a chance for at least one couple’s happiness. Dunno what to feel about the story, but still thanks for the release anyway.

    I made a comment on the wrong manga about this one. I really like this one because it was very thoughtful! Thank you for this!

    Just read this. I really liked it and the art was refreshing (character art looks a bit rough, but really adorable). Personally, I don’t think the ending is vague at all. I don’t want to spoil anything so I try to be vague:
    There were ‘signs’ from the start, and the end is definite. Erina’s behaviour towards classmates is explained through the way the story ends (she knew about it and didn’t want to make friendships as not to get hurt later; she might’ve experienced this often already). Toyoda talked to her and Erina might have wanted to reject her by telling an obvious lie, but Toyoda ‘believed’ the lie and Erina went along. When Erina found out about the nickname, she apologized for tricking her and felt bad because of the way it will end.
    Well, that’s my take on the story. Although the end seems abrupt and most people won’t like it, I did. After reflecting on the story, it got pretty deep and the ending could be anticipated early on.

    What I don’t get is: what was the promise at the end about? It’s not like there was anything she can’t tell others (nor some intimate event).
