The various Mermaid saga stories were collected into several graphic novels that had Japanese and domestic U.S. printings. I've also seen supposed Chinese printings; it wouldn't surprise if these actually exist since a lot of Rumiko Takahashi's works have been printed in Chinese. If anyone has more information on them, please let me know! Please e-mail me at schala ~~at~~ schala.info with the word "Mermaid" somewhere in the subject line so I know your e-mail isn't spam. ^_^
