Synopsis

The story centers around Tsukimi Kurashita, a huge fan of jellyfish (kurage, a wordplay on the "kura/mi" and "tsuki/ge" in her name) and a girl who moves to Tokyo to become an illustrator. She moves into "Amamizukan," an apartment complex that is full of fujoshi (diehard female otaku) with a no-men-allowed rule. However, one day, Tsukimi invites a stylishly fashionable woman to stay at her room at Amamizukan—only to discover that the guest is not who "she" seems to be.

The peaceful life of a group called the "Amars" (nun) suddenly gets disturbed by a stylish person! Wow. There's already so much contrast in that one sentence alone you know that the story is going to be good. :D

Kuragehime was first introduced to me in its anime form; I got really interested in the anime so I decided to check out the manga afterwards. For me who was also obsessed with various things like boy bands, games, movies, TV shows, and novels I can relate to the characters feelings. I wasn't an eccentric fangirl like the main characters but the emotional read more

Don't bother with the half finished anime- start your love for the Jellyfish Princess where it all began. This manga is fantastic, and is one of the few I salivate a little when I see an update. This is soon to be a classic in the Josei genre and is rightfully so. With it's wonderful characters, humor, art, and beautiful story, this needs to be a read next.

Story: For those who have seen the anime and want to know what happens next, read on. This takes place much later than the anime, and gets better with every turn. The story isn't so outlandish that it read more

Warning: spoilers ahead and could be kind of clunky to read.

Rarely do I find a shoujo manga so enjoyable and without any annoyance. Why? Well it's for the simplicity and how the humor is shown.

Normally, the mangas we find for shoujo manga are pretty predictable. Girl meets guy, they fall in love through some events and the girl is pretty dumb-- always unconscious of her feelings.

This one could be the same in some ways, but you can't really blame the girl this time! Tsukimi, she's a big time otaku of jellyfish and she lives with other otakus of other things. The only kind of read more

This is one of the more unique manga I have read. And also it's so funny!

It's about Tsukimi, a female otaku (they also refer to themselves as fujuoshi), who initially came to Japan to be a illustrator but now she just lives in Amamizukan with other female otakus, spending her time drawing jellyfish and also sometimes helping the mangaka also living in the building draw stuff. All the other occupants of the building are delightfully weird and really cute, like Mayaya who always holds her hands in a kungfu pose and Banba who has an afro and Jiji who loves old read more
