One day, Maneki-Neko decided to leave the humans in order to bring a happy future to the inhabitants of the ocean. There, it quickly adapted to the new environment and, being well respected by the marine
natives, was able to spread under the name of “Lucky Hermit” as an auspicious neobiont, overcoming borders.
From time to time, Lucky Hermit surprises unsuspecting fishermen, when it is lifted from the sea as bycatch. In this way, even today, in the shape of a “hermit- mermaid- maneki-neko-fossil”, it still makes many human beings happy too.
