She is ordered by Princess Shunde to tame the beautiful merman Changyi (Ren Jialun) and have him do three things: speak the human language, transform the tail into a pair legs and stay absolutely loyal to the princess.

This post features a string of fairly well-rated Internet series that are obviously written by males… Is it just me or are Internet series much more sexist than normal ones, or is the sexism just more blunt?
- Superpower comedy Girl in Icebox 冰箱少女 begun streaming on QQ and features Guo Xiaoting (potato girl from CP3) as a girl with a super brain found by Wang Chuanjun. The two discover more people with superpowers,
attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, battle against evil, and probably fall in love.
- Suspense comedy Death Notify: The Darker 暗黑者 is yet another QQ series from the team of comedy Longmen Express 龙门镖局 . Blunt humor combined with decent logic (it was based off a book), if low production values.
- The Making of a Villain 谢文东/坏蛋是怎样炼成的 is yet another Internet series with a cult following. I heard good reviews about this, as well, if you ignore the anachronistic setting (Republican, but everyone acts as if they live now).
- Finally, the team of Never Ever Expected brings you High-Tech Girl : Meow~ 高科技少女喵, where the Boss from Yes, Boss! finds a girl robot named Meow that his future self had built.
