Yuu gets an unusual gift from his father: a jar of water. His father insists that this is no ordinary water, and eventually he is proven correct: a tiny girl, Merc, materializes from it. Merc remembers nothing from before she was enclosed in the bottle, and she and Yuu set out on a journey in search of clues to her past.

(One episode watched):

Merc's infectious cuteness and optimism, and her unique situation, caused me to sit up and take notice of this show. But after that I don't recall anything else that struck me as particularly original happening, and my interest slowly drained away. The situation where 'monsters' need to be healed was vague and confusing, and the remainder of the episode was taken up with a lengthy chase which got boring before long. As a result, what began in an encouraging manner ended with me wondering if this show would be worth watching at all. That seemed a distinct disappointment, because Merc and Yuu are definitely likeable characters; if only some more effort had been put into writing better tales for them to act out. Maybe the journey that they resolve to undertake will be interesting. I thought about watching episode two as well, but ultimately didn't. There were plenty of promising shows at this point in the season, and while I wished I was wrong, I couldn't help doubting that much would ever come of Merc Storia.
