This anime is wonderful, and even I enjoyed it despite my usual hatred of anime centred around romance. The characters are great, the character designs are great, and the plot is great. Even so, there's a huge problem with this anime that will always bug me.

It's incomplete. Usually when I'm finished with an anime, I'm disappointed it's over but I'm still satisfied, but that wasn't the case with Kuragehime. I'm not going to spoil anything, but the ending was really, REALLY, rushed. They seemed to try and wrap up everything over the course of one episode, and after that we were left with some unanswered read more

Alright, I admit it. I was skeptical at first when I heard of this anime, since I've seen all sorts of gender bender plots. Besides, "Jellyfish Princess"? What kind of title is that?

But don't be deceived by first impressions. True to its roots, this anime is focused at a more mature audience then typical animes; that's why it's the josei genre. It relates to many aspects of "fandoms". Trains, Japanese culture, fashion, politics, and much more. Many of the characters are attractive, not by their looks, but by their personalities, and how their individual fandoms relate to them. This not only gives a charm in read more

In all honesty, I didn't expect much from Kuragehime. My friend just recommended it to me since I asked her if she knew of any nice, lighthearted animes (I had been watching a ton of heavy, serious animes, and I needed a change in moods before returning to darker animes). I watched Kuragehime in one night. Kuragehime was just a cute, comedic anime that made me smile, so I thought, why not write a review?

Art · 7/10

The art was okay. It was adorable and the jellyfishes looked nicely drawn.

Sound · 5/10

The OST doesn't really stand out. OP and ED are decent and they're accompanied read more

The setup for Princess Jellyfish revolves around six NEET females who have decided to live together in a small, "retro" building. They all lead their daily mooch lifestyles through the show, coming into contact with a few different types of people in the process, and that is just about its entirety.

Before moving along with that statement, let's focus on the budget. Princess Jellyfish is well animated and has a pleasant art style. The show's direction carries some expression, and the soundtrack is indeed serviceable. I would consider the opening and ending music good and am pleased when seeing how plentiful of references they can be, read more

Main character is an ugly girl that is made better by a superior man. Also, crossdressing.

Anime: Paradise Kiss
Anime adaptations of josei manga with an emphasis on fashion. One would assume this means most males should run far away with their anuses clenched and never look back, but no: they are strangely accessible and appealing even to the more manly males that frequent this site, such as myself. Seeing adult(ish) characters mentally dealing with the highs and lows of AN ACTUAL SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP IN ANIME!!111! is appealing in Paradise Kiss. Princess Jellyfish's fujoshi-in-a-boarding house freakout gag humour makes it more of a comedy than a drama and even more male-accessible as a consequence. And the fashion aspects are presented from the respective heroine's  read more

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke
Both are anime made for girls that guys can really like. If you're a guy and you like realistic/idealistic romance anime than this is for you.

Anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge
Both are quirky, unique shows about a group of strange people living together, featuring one person new to the group, with occasional heartwarming and/or romantic undercurrents.

Anime: Genshiken
Both depict the life of Otaku, in Genshiken's case mostly male otaku with a few girls thrown into the mix, in the case of kuragehime it's a community of female otaku.
