Seto no Hanayome (瀬戸の花嫁 lit. The Inland Sea Bride?) is a Japanese manga series written by Tahiko Kimura. The manga was serialized between the September 2002 and May 2009 issues of Monthly Gangan Wing, and the June and December 2010 issues of Wikipedia:Monthly Gangan Joker, both published by Square Enix.


The story of Seto no Hanayome revolves around a young teenage boy named Nagasumi Michishio. One day during his summer vacation at Seto Bay, Nagasumi is saved from drowning by a mermaid, Sun Seto. Under Mermaid law, however, either the Mermaid whose identity was revealed, or the human who saw the Mermaid, must be executed. In an attempt to save both Nagasumi and Sun's lives, Sun's family, which is the head of a Mermaid mafia group, reluctantly decides that the two are to be married. Sun's father Gōzaburō is enraged about his daughter's sudden marriage. Between Gōzaburō's constant attempts on his life and the madcap antics of a slew of antagonists, Nagasumi has a hard time transitioning into his new married lifestyle.
