Daily Heroine: Neptina

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Neptina, the young mermaid from the 60s anime/cartoon Marine Boy, known as Kaitei Shonen Marin in Japan. In Marine Boy she was voiced by Corinne Orr (who, incidentally, also voiced Marine Boy himself) and in Kaitei Shonen Marin, she was voiced by Yoshiko Matsuo. I recall Marine Boy being an incredibly exciting show when I watched it as a kid, but my memories of it are very vague. I certainly didn’t recall that Marine Boy was friends with a cute mermaid, who wears nothing but a large pearl around her neck. That was a pleasant rediscovery I made when I watched Marine Boy again as an adult.😁

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊
