September 7th is the due date for the second half of My Bride is a Mermaid from FUNimation but it's gotten out a bit early and fans have noticed a bit of an alteration to the release. This set of episodes has the second ending sequence of the series to it and it appears that it's been altered significantly. In the original, which you can see in a clean form further below, it has all of the characters going across on sushi plates on a conveyor belt doing all sorts of little wacky wild takes and the like. It's simple, amusing and fits in perfectly with the show.

The FUNimation release for some reason ends up using one still from the show, similar to what we provide below but not exactly, and pans out from there for the duration of the song with the translated credits over it. Either a rights issue or a lack of materials is the reason for it as even in the extras section, we do not get the original closing but the FUNimation slow zoom out version that only contains the first three characters from the sequence in static form.

 

Plot summary: Nagasumi's in hot water after a beautiful young mermaid named Sun saves him from drowning. The deep-sea sweetheart's dad is a merman yakuza prone to executing anyone who learns his family's scaly secret! Luckily, there's a loophole: if Nagasumi agrees to marry Sun, he just might avoid sleeping with the fishes! He's doing his best to keep his finned fiancee happy, but a rising flood of rival suitors and gilled gangsters has Nagasumi gasping for air! He's definitely in over his head, but there's no denying the mermaid's allure - Nagasumi's hooked now that Sun has come ashore! Contains episodes 14-26.
