Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lucia is a cute high school student-but she is also a mermaid princess. She and her fellow mermaids, Hanon and Rina, draw their power from magical pearls, which give them "pichi pichi" (lighthearted) voices and transform them into rock stars in kick-ass schoolgirl outfits with stars, glitter and matching microphones. Just a few lyrics ("Love Shower Pitch!" Lucia shouts) can defeat any enemy. That's a good thing, too, since the evil Gackto is bent on kidnapping the princesses so he can rule the seven seas. Meanwhile, Lucia pines over the surfer Kaito, who is helplessly in love with a mysterious mermaid who once saved his life, unaware, of course, that Lucia is that mermaid. Pichi Pichi Pitch is a mermaid version of Sailor Moon with a little Hans Christian Anderson thrown in for good measure. A few cardboard villains, a recycled love story, eyes so large they take up half the page, several glitzy transformation sequences and abundant fan service (cheesecake) make for an industrial-strength shojo. It's been adapted into a very popular anime in Japan, and fans of this kind of hyper-cute tale should find this manga to their liking. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    One fantastic Read

    This is not some everyday fantasy graphic novel. It moves somewhat fast but has a telling tale of a mermaid and her quest to find her pearl and the boy who carries it.
    She goes through many hardships and many doubtful scenes that its hard to even stop the flow of the book once you start it.

    Great Book!

    This is my favortie manga ever,i just got completely obsessed! The plot is very good and you might think yes girls transforming with little cute outfits and deafeating villians with their voices is corny. But it's not! You should also watch the anime it is even better. You can watch it on youtube.

    Loved it!

    Wow! This has got to be one of the best mangas I have ever read. I checked it out of the library a few days ago and have already read it at least 5 times! I've gotten my friends all hooked and definitely plan on buying it for myself.

    One Word For This Manga Is...AWWW ^_^

    This is a pretty cool manga, and the characters are so adorable. It sort of reminds me of Tokyo Mew Mew. None the less it's still really good for something that's about mermaids. I actually can't wait for the second volume to come out. I'm dying to know what happens between Lucia & Kaito.
