Wakasa (若狭 Wakasa) is one of the main characters, a merman who invited himself to live in the bathtub of Tatsumi.

AppearanceEdit

Wakasa is a handsome merman with very long, silky, blonde hair, which edges up at the back of his head, like the back fin of a shark, although it falls freely beneath. His eyes and fin are both colored in a blue shade, while his skin is really smooth and slippery.

PersonalityEdit

Wasaka is carefree and not shy about letting himself be spoiled by Tatsumi's kindness. He does not know much about human society and is very impressionable. He is very huggy and doesn't mind pulling Tatsumi into the tub to bathe with him, or hugging onto him whenever he's sitting too close to the tub for too long. Wakasa also loves eating hamburgers and when Tatsumi mentioned a possibility of switching from hamburger meat to tofu to save on expenses, he was devastated.

BackgroundEdit

Wakasa originally lived in a heavily polluted river by the upstream dam.[2] As it became too troublesome to live in that area, since rumors about mermaid sighting had started to go around, he decided he had to leave and was found stranded by Tatsumi, who invited him to live in his comfortable and clean bathroom.[2]

It's later revealed that Wasaka first meet Tatsumi when he was around 10-years-old, after he fall in a river while he was fishing and Wakasa rescued him.[3] However, after being offended by Tatsumi, he threatened him so he will not tell anyone about his existence. This made Tatsumi to hate the water, taking baths and mainly, the slime. When they met again years later, neither of the two seemed to remember the other.

Abilities Edit

Unbeknownst to even himself, he has unspecified powers that include levitation and Hydrokinesis. He retains no memories after activation. During this event, his pupils become slitted and he gains scales on his face.
