It is said that one who eats the flesh of a Mermaid will grant a person eternal youth. It's been 500 years since Yuta has eaten a Mermaids flesh and has spent much of his Eternal life trying to find one in order to make him age again.

However, Yuta eventually finds one, but discovers she and her companions have been raising a girl named Mana in order to devour her so they can keep their youthful appearance. This is how Mermaids stay young.

Yuta kills the mermaids and rescues the girl, however fails to find the secret to grant him time again. However, Yuta quickly gets over it and finds companionship with Mana. Together, they both try to find the secret of lifting their immortality.
