My Bride Is An Edited Ending?

Closing sequence to the comedy proves to be less than original

My Bride is a Mermaid
© FUNimation

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.

Man, I was just watching the DVDs had no idea they edited it, since the first half's ending also ending in a panned out still shot.


Dunnoi why they changed it but I really like the full ending better =\

Last I read from ANN, Chris: FUNi stated that it was a "technical issue."  And rather than delay the show, they'll give it the audience a 19/20th - arsed show.

The people behind the show should suffer the same fate as the shounen lead IMMHO; but if it happened to a show I liked, then I wouldn't be too happy either.  i.e. Bible Black New Testament and "Thank You, Jerks Who Don't Put Money Back Into The Anime Industry."

Besides:  "Complete 2-Season Box Set."  They COME When You Build It!  :)

If the ending of the credit roll is the only thing that has changed I can live with something like that. For the most part the show is still intact.

Most importantly, the dub is awesome.  I'm really happy to see Bryan Massey in another role, even if it is somewhat minor and not as good as Ladd Russo.

 I've been watching it over the last few days, and it's really not a big deal. It's only the end credits, and the rest of the show hasn't been touched. Still very much worth buying, as the show is pretty damn funny, and the dub is excellent.
