Welcome to Amamizukan!

Akiko Higashimura’s award nominated josei (young women’s) manga series Kuragehime (Jellyfish Princess) revolves around Tsukimi Kurashita, a jellyfish otaku who lives in a women-only apartment complex. When she meets a fashionable lady who rescues a jellyfish, Kurashita invites her new friend to become her room-mate, only to later discover that the “fashionable lady” is actually a man in drag.

The manga began in 2008 and ended in 2017. It has been adapted into an 11-episode television series.



An 11-episode anime TV series adaptation produced by Brain's Base and directed by Takahiro Omori aired in Japan between October 15 and December 30, 2010, on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block.[3][4] Four BD/DVD compilation volumes will be released from January to April 2011, and each volume will contain a bonus anime short.[5] Two pieces of theme music are used for the anime: one opening theme and one ending theme.
