The Seto no Hanayome OVAs are new stand alone shorts with characters from the series and also two new ones. It is now the third year of school, San and Luna's dads are still being over protective. All the while Nagasumi has his hands full trying to keep everyone around him under control and rescuing damsels in distress.
SET THE STAGE – SETO NO HANAYOME OVA SYNOPSIS
Our tale leaps into action when Nagasumi Michishio, an average human teenager, finds himself knee-deep in an underwater predicament during a summer vacation at Setouchi City. Coming impossibly close to meeting Davy Jones, he is saved by a captivating mermaid named San Seto. According to mermaid law, to prevent their secret from being revealed, either the human who learns of their existence or the mermaid herself must perish. In an unexpected turn of hilarity and romance, Nagasumi is tossed headfirst into a whirlwind of zany traditions, as San chooses to marry him instead of walking the plank.
San’s family, crime bosses of the underwater mermaid yakuza, are far from thrilled and the family’s endless attempts to break them apart, coupled with the constant attention of a gang of wacky undersea creatures, creates an ocean of humor and adventure that continues to marry world of sitcom antics with the splashy charm of underwater life in the delightful “Seto no Hanayome” OVA.
