Very Sad Story.
Jurai's Heir | Denham Springs, LA, USA | 10/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love Disney's version of Hans Christian Andersen's Classic Tale, but it didn't stick to the true story of how it was written. Of course since Disney makes movies for family & especially children, they had to change the ending of a very sad story to a happy one. However I've seen this one just as many times as I seen the Disney version, of course the animation to this version is very dated since it was drawn in the 1970's & it was one of the first anime's, but for the story, the voice cast, the narration & the music, was very moving for me. It made me believe in true love and that there's more out there then just us.

P.S. - This film is not for children do to the story line in this version, some nudity (nothing serious) & the front box cover is totally different from the movie."
Thankfully not Disney.

"This is the late 1970's animation from Toi, a Japanese animation house. One viewing and you'll see just how much it 'inspired' Disney. Also, don't let the lame cover art fool you. Why they didn't go with a cell from the animation I'll never know, but this is vintage anime.

The story is not cleaned up like so many other fairy tales have been. She does, indeed, die in this one. There is mild nudity, as she doesn't wear a top as a mermaid, though no breasts are seen. I might be mildly scary for the youngest child, but should fit in fine with your standard princesses.

I searched for this movie for quite some time, and bought it on a whim at a dollar store. I promptly realized I had indeed found a treasure, and bought a few copies for friends."

"I loved this anime as a kid. I loved the heartbreaking truth of the real story of the little mermaid. I was incredible thrilled to find this on DVD after years of searching for one that wasn't someones bootleg copy taped from the VHS. Imagine my disapointment to see that like 4 minutes had been chopped from the film.
No longer does the sea witch brew the potion before your eyes, no longer does she cut out Marina's tongue. I understand we try to sheild our children today, but my goodness, this is a classic how dare we tamper with it!"
