The Little Mermaid (1975): Film Review

Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid (1975) Not to be confused with the Disney animated adaptation of the same name which was released 14 years later in 1989, this anime version of The Little Mermaid is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairy tale and was released in 1975 by Toei Animation (famous for creating the Sailor Moon series).
