Birthdates and Ages

Sometimes it's hard to tell just exactly how old the mermaid princesses are supposed to be - especially considering how young Coco looks, and how, er, well-developed Lucia is for someone her supposed age! However, on this page, I've attempted to gather up some information about the ages and birthdates of each mermaid princess.

The birthdates given for each mermaid princess come from one of two sources:

  • A fortune-telling furoku booklet included with the April 2004 issue of Nakayoshi, which lists the exact birthdates (year included) of Lucia/Hanon/Rina, and gives the day-of-the-week that each of the other mermaid princesses must have been born on.
  • A color illustration included in the August 2004 issue of Nakayoshi, which serves as the frontpiece for chapter 24. This illustration lists the birthdates of each mermaid princess, except Seira. The birthdates listed include a date and which day of the week each princess was born on, although the birthdates do NOT include exact years. These birthdates are again reprinted in the back of volume 05 of the manga.

So here's what we know, based on the two sources listed above...


Nanami Lucia // born Monday, July 3rd, 1989 (source: fortune-telling booklet). Lucia is thirteen years old in chapter 01 of the manga; in chapter 11, she observes her fourteenth birthday.

Houshou Hanon // born Wednesday, May 24th, 1989 (source: fortune-telling booklet). Hanon celebrated her thirteenth birthday sometime before chapter 01 of the manga, as shown in a flashback in chapter 02.

Touin Rina // born Saturday, September 2nd, 1989 (source: fortune-telling booklet).

Caren // born just on the later side of midnight, on Friday, February 14th (source: frontpiece illustration, chapter 24). In chapter 12 of the manga, Caren states that she is eighteen years old. My best guess is that both Caren and Noel were born in 1986. (February 14th occurs on a Friday in 1975, 1986, and 1992. Of these, 1986 seems the most likely choice, keeping in mind that chapter 12 of the manga was published during, and is roughly contemporary with, summer 2003.)

Noel // born just on the early side of midnight, on Thursday, February 13th (source: frontpiece illustration, chapter 24). In chapter 12 of the manga, Noel's twin sister Caren states that she is eighteen years old. My best guess is that both Caren and Noel were born in 1986. (February 13th occurs on a Thursday in 1975, 1986, and 1992. Of these, 1986 seems the most likely choice, keeping in mind that chapter 12 of the manga was published during, and is roughly contemporary with, summer 2003.)

Coco // born Tuesday, August 7th (source: frontpiece illustration, chapter 24). Coco is shown as a mature young woman in a flashback in chapter 17, whereas at the same time and in the same flashback, Lucia is a little seven-year-old girl. Hence, Coco has to at least be older than Lucia. Therefore, Coco must have been born before 1989. My best guess for her birth year would be 1984. (August 7th occurs on a Tuesday in 1973, 1979, and 1984.)

Sara // born Sunday, November 22nd (source: frontpiece illustration, chapter 24). Sara appears to be the oldest of the mermaid princesses - we can at least assume that she's older than Lucia, based on the flashback shown in chapter 17. In which case, Sara would have to have been born before 1989. My best guess for her birth year would be 1981. (November 22nd occurs on a Sunday in 1970, 1981, and 1987.)

Seira // Seira was born on a Sunday (source: frontpiece illustration, chapter 24). Judging by the events of chapters 28-29, my best guess is that Seira was born the day after Christmas on Sunday, December 26th, 2004.
