Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch (マーメイドメロディーぴちぴちピッチ, Māmeido Merodī Pichi Pichi Picchi) is a shōjo manga and anime series created by Michiko Yokote (横手 美智子, Yokote Michiko), with artwork by Pink Hanamori (花森 ぴんく, Hanamori Pinku?). The manga was originally published in the monthly shōjo manga anthology Nakayoshi. There are 32 chapters published (including two special stories) and are compiled into seven volumes issued by Kodansha.

Pichi Pichi Pitch is loosely based upon the old Hans Christian Andersen version of "The Little Mermaid" tale, which is about the mermaid who falls in love with a human boy, and transforms into a human to win his heart.

The anime series was produced by TV Aichi. The first season of which, composed of 52 episodes, was shown on the TV Tokyo Network from April 05, 2003 to March 27, 2004. A second season, entitled Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pure, lasted for 39 episodes and was aired from April 03 to December 25, 2004.

ADV Films acquired the license to the anime and should be released in 2009. Del Rey Manga acquired the rights to publish the manga for the North American audience. It began releasing the manga on April 2006 under the title Pichi Pichi Pitch: Mermaid Melody.This came as an attempt to familiarize English readers with the canonical short form of the title, as other titles have done: for example, Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon became Sailor Moon and Kidō Tenshi Angelic Layer has been released in North America as simply Angelic Layer.
