Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free! Eternal Summer's Haruka, Glasslip's Yukinari) will star as the main protagonist Tatsumi (seen right in the image), while Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Free! Eternal Summer's Makoto, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts's Yūji) will play Takasu, an octopus man who sometimes shows up at Tatsumi's home.
Itokichi's four-panel manga begins with Tatsumi, a high school boy who lives by himself. Then, a devastatingly handsome merman named Wakasa moves into the bathtub in Tatsumi's home. Wakasa is a bit self-centered but cute, while Tatsumi is cool but a busybody. The manga offers a peek into their lives together.
Sayo Aoi (Deadman Wonderland, Say "I love you." episode director) will direct the series at Asahi Production (Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World). Yuniko Ayana (Kin-iro Mosaic, Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing) will handle the series composition and Koji Haneda (Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) will handle the character design.
