Title: Mermaid Saga Part 12 – The Ash Princess Creator: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts Wow, so we’ve reached the final “Mermaid Saga” story to recap. My first completion of an entire series for Devil’s Elbow. Unfortunately this last chapter is devoid of Mana, so Wing I hope you enjoyed her presence in the last recap. […]

Title: Mermaid Saga Parts 8-9 – “Mermaid’s Promise” Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts So we’ve reached the last of the stories that feature Yuta AND Mana. The following, which will be the last recap, takes place during Yuta’s past. I’m not sure how to feel about this because we get a glimpse at what happens […]

Mermaid Saga Part 7: Dream's End by Rumiko TakahashiOther Recaps: Recap #172: Mermaid Saga Part 7: Dream’s End by Rumiko Takahashi (Jude Deluca on 2 Aug 2018)
Title: Mermaid Saga Part 7 – Dream’s End Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts It’s a good thing I chose this chapter for July because I’ve been incredibly backlogged the last couple of weeks ever since I got sick around Independence Day. Dream’s End is another oddity in the series because it provides more world building, […]

Other Recaps: Recap #167: Mermaid Saga Parts 13-14: Mermaid’s Gaze by Rumiko Takahashi (Jude Deluca on 26 Jun 2018)
Title: Mermaid’s Saga Parts 13-14 – Mermaid’s Gaze Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts We’ve come to one of my favorites in the series, but it’s sad because this story’s never gotten an animated adaption. We’ll also be visiting another twisted sibling dynamic like the Kannagi Sisters from “Mermaid’s Forest,” but this goes much differently than […]

Title: Mermaid Saga Parts 15-16 – Mermaid’s Mask Creator: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts It’s Mother’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than by recapping yet another twisted mother/son dynamic from the mind of Rumiko Takahashi? “Mermaid’s Mask” is the last story in the series, and is almost as bloody as “Mermaid’s Scar.” It’s one […]

Other Recaps: Recap #141: Mermaid Saga Part 3-4: The Village of the Fighting Fish by Rumiko Takahashi (Jude Deluca on 22 Mar 2018)
Title: Mermaid Saga Part 3-4 – The Village of the Fighting Fish Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Initial Thoughts This immediately isn’t one of my favorites stories in the series. While two of the characters are pretty cool, it doesn’t really have the same horror feel as the other tales. The tone and setting comes across similar […]

Title: Mermaid Saga Chapters 10 & 11 – Mermaid’s Scar Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Cover Summary: N/A Initial Thoughts For Wing’s birthday I’m recapping the best part of Mermaid Saga by far.

Other Recaps: Recap #104: Mermaid Saga Parts 5-6: Mermaid’s Forest by Rumiko Takahashi (Jude Deluca on 10 Nov 2017)
Title: Mermaid Saga Chapter 5 & 6 – Mermaid’s Forest Author/Artist: Rumiko Takahashi Summary: N/A Initial Thoughts: I decided to skip chapters 3 and 4 for now because that story isn’t really a horror tale, but more of an action/adventure one that takes place in Yuta’s past. I prefer the modern day stories because the […]
