Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pure is the name given to the second season of the anime version of Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, which in turn is based from the manga series created by Michiko Yokote (横手美智子), with artwork by Pink Hanamori (花森ぴんく, Hanamori Pinku). The stories in this season correspond to chapters 21 to 30 of the manga. Produced by TV Aichi, it was shown on the TV Tokyo Network from to writing jobs.

This season differed strongly from the first, mainly in the quality of animation, especially in the last few episodes. They also reused stock footage. The secondary trio became a source of comic relief rather than plot complications, and the series' new "twist" was that all the new villains had image songs. Finally, the themes differed in that the series focused more on the trials of losing love, losing heart (literally and figuratively), and good decisions for one person always hurting another. While the first season was loosely based on the first half of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, this season was inspired by the second half, introducing a character named Michal who filled the role of Lucia's rival.
