Everyone kept either cats or dogs as pets… Uh… I’ve a merman in my bathtub

49 Days with a Merman 我家浴缸的二三事 is an upcoming Taiwanese live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga series, Merman in My Tub オレん家のフロ事情 (Orenchi no Furo Jijō), by Itokichi いときち. Although the series is strictly a comedy, it does have innuendo of BL… In 2014, the serialized manga already has an anime TV adapation in Japan consisting of 13 short episodes.

On January 22 earlier this year, they announced the start of the filming for the new live-action series and a few days ago, they released the official poster, so that means the series will go to air very soon although the premiere date has not been set yet.

Although 49 Days with a Merman is not a BL series, this year Taiwan has certainly stepped up to give us more Chinese language BL series. Apart from the ones that have already aired earlier this year, we can expect a few more BL series from Taiwan in the coming weeks. SYAQ 隔離後見個面,好嗎? will premiere next week, then Innocent 無邪 will premeiere on September 24, after that 2 more series will air later this year, 聽不見的距離 and 基因決定我愛你.

The OST for 49 Days with a Merman has not been announced yet, but I will add the OST here when they become available, for the moment here’s the official teaser (full official song not available on YouTube) to the 2014’s Japanese anime series’ theme song…

Fatal Wound 致命傷 – Matenrou Opera 摩天楼オペラ

Update January 5, 2021: After the official announcement of the series in September last year, it has gone quiet for 3 months, but finally the premiere date has just been announced, this series will premiere on February 6, 2022!

At the same time they have also released a new official poster for the series with the premiere date and the trailer… The promotional song used in the trailer is Be Alright by Bii, which is also used in The Memory Garden 如果花知道 OST…

Update January 9, 2022: They have released the character relationship chart, and it seems they have changed quite a lot from the anime series. I haven’t read the original manga so can only compare it with the anime. The anime series concentrated a lot on the merman’s friends like octopusman, jellyfishman, and others who came to visit him in the bathtub with hilarious results, but the characters in this live action are all from the human side, and no friends from the merman side… They are also turning the sister in the original anime story into a childhood sweetheart, so does this mean she and the merman may become love rivals, this may become a BL story? LOL…
