The legend has it that once upon a time, a pact was sealed between the Shinto priest of the town of Amide and a mermaid. Ever since, abundant fishing has guaranteed the town’s prosperity. This pact has always been honored by the priests of the Yashiro family. However, the legend has attracted both media and property developers, and the acting priest has acceded to their demands.

Though they all look like Satoshi Kon’s heroines (and some very much like Mima Kirigoe from Perfect Blue), these pieces were pulled from the ‘Original Works/Early Works' section of the art book Kon’s Works 1982-2010.

I’ve cropped a few of these, but you can see the full versions in the art book, available on Amazon JP and US.
