    Wow, those tails are puffy at the ankle. Less so in the water though.

    Of course they named a character Eric. Maybe they will have a mermaid named Ariel too?

    Ugh that plot again? Meh. I will still probably watch it anyways. Sometimes. When I'm bored. Maybe.

    I'm excited because they said they want a thirds season in either LA, California or Berlin, Germany. (As a part-time L.A. mermaid, this makes me happy)

    I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.

    Well we know that there are going to be two new mermaids, at least.

    We knew that. To some extent they replaced the other two mermaids who left. But (avoiding spoilers here) the mermaid on the far left was part of the last season and definitely not a mermaid in it. Can't wait to hear the story arch between the two seasons that's going to fit all of these changes.

    Didn't feel like making this it's own thread yet but H2O is being adapted for an animated series.

    Wow. That...sounds really weird. I don't know if I could get used to different voices for the characters.

    Maybe they'll do the animated series like they did Mako Mermaids and just keep the basic mermaid rules the same but change everything else.

    ^ That's my guess too. The mermaids look nothing like the original characters. I know that's not much to go on but I can only assume animating the series gives the writers a lot more freedom. It's a bit easier to animate an underwater magic sequence than it is to film live actors and put in special effects.

    Also, hey look, different tail colors. Depending on the first episode, I may end up really liking this animated H2O, but there's also a chance that it'll just be really cheesy.

    As for Mako, the more mermen, the better in my opinion, but I'm really upset that Lucy and Ivy won't be back. Being the last of the original three will give Sirena a little more room for some character development, but these new mermaids better be likeable/well developed characters to make up for the loss of such plot-driving characters. Sirena never was all that assertive. The plot itself also seems really shallow, and unless there's some interesting plot twist that will be revealed later, that in and of itself may deter me from watching it. Evie as a mermaid would have been great potential for animosity (and therefore plotfodder) between her and Lyla, but seeing as she never really had much important interaction with Sirena, any strife the writers try to sew into their relationship will seemed forced.

    The hypothetical merging of the Mako and H2O universes would be extremely interesting, and could delve into specifics of the mer-world and its social rules and politics. It's a very interesting concept, but unfortunately, few fic writers have tried to tackle the idea, and fewer still have the writing ability to pull it off. The universes are just different enough from each other to be considered different universes entirely, but with a little creative writing from the show writers, that could easily be fixed.

    Anywhodles, I'm excited for season two regardless, and will probably end up watching it because mers, but unless they have something interesting up their sleeves, it won't be as good as the first season, which in turn wasn't as good as H2O (this is me recommending H2O to anyone who hasn't seen it if the countless twelvie youtube series haven't put you off).

    Are the H2O episodes on youtube the real deal? I tried watching Season 2 Episode 1 yesterday, and couldn't stand the dubbed chipmunk voices.

    Could you link them? I didn't find them.

    And now their tweeting about a possible other season as well as a movie. I think they're just grasping at straws at this point :/

    *Sigh* I wish they'd just give us a little more concrete stuff with some definite answers.
