    3rd book finished for BTAT2017! Completed the challenge "read a book in a day" This manga was so cute and geeky and funny! Also the art was 10/10 ...

    Of all the truth-is-weird manga to flit among Japanese publishers over the past decade, PRINCESS JELLYFISH is a clever work of metafiction whose time-capsule feel engenders as much respectful humor as it does eyebrow-raising nostalgia. It is an acquired taste: crossdressing, otaku priv...

    "To share a pot with a stylish girl is to dine in hell!" Finally!!! I have been waiting for the longest of times for this to be translated into English. I was super tempted to buy the French edition and fake my way through it. (Which I might still do.) No need to fake it now. This w...

    I'll be honest. When I first heard the title, I thought this was some odd magical girl manga. I think I was thinking of another series, but I seriously thought that for a long time. I'm surprised I never picked it up before now... Anyway, my initial thoughts from the title turned ou...

    I loved this first English-language volume of Princess Jellyfish. I wasn't sure I'd like this when Shea and I originally decided to read this for the manga monthly show, and this was because my expectations were off base. I thought with the "princess" in the title, this might be someth...

    Amamizukan is not your average apartment building. For one thing, it?s a small, old-fashioned building of the type rarely seen these days. More importantly, all the residents are fujoshi (?rotten women?) who for one reason or another have fallen outside the society-approved get j...

    4/5 stars. I liked this! It took me a bit to get into but I really enjoyed it. There's so many different characters and personalities in this story, I'm intrigued to read more. :D ...

    I received this manga in my Landfall Freight box which is female focused comic book subscription box. (amazing, check it out). Anyways, I was a little skeptical. I have been thinking about getting into manga for a little while but didn't know where to start. I have had this for more th...

    There's a lot to like about Princess Jellyfish. Fictional portrayals (that aren't insulting) of groups of female nerds are rare, and groups that aren't so much united by a single nerdy interest as by the fact that they all have a slightly obsessive enthusiasm for something are rarer st...

    Decided to give this a try since my best friend said it was such a hilarious manga...and so far to me, it was okay. Not bad. I think it was a good setup. The main character was a bit too dramatic, but hopefully that will get settled as the story goes on. Wasn't too keen on her friends,...

    4 stars. This was so freaking cute! I absolutely adored this manga. The story is weird and hilarious, the characters are so lovable and adoring and the art style is super stinking cute. This was just a big ball of fluff. It doesn't take itself too seriously and yet it somehow manages t...

    I must say, I absolutely loved the anime, but like many animes, it was produced faster than the writer could finish the manga, and was seemingly cut off a bit short. Excitingly enough, the manga has finally been serialized in the United States by Kodansha Comics, and it is absolutely a...

    I would lean more towards four & a half stars on this one. This was a whole lot of fun! I haven't read manga in ages & as I flicked through 'Princess Jellyfish' I realised how much I'd miss the humour and over the top characters that manga often provides. This book had me la...

    A little busy in some of the panels and since I'm not very used to reading right to left, that made it harder to keep everything straight. I like the premise quite a lot, the jellyfish theme, combined with the lets-save-our-home theme. Banba is hilarious. (But what is up with that Inar...

    I would never have read this based on the cover or the description. SO glad I read a review of it online! SO funny, so heartfelt, with a fast-paced plot and plenty of good drama. ...

    Just wanted to mention, I put this review under the wrong book at first, but, none the less, I'm pretty sure it holds the same content for the most part. This is the actual book I read. I couldn't figure out how to edit it, at least not yet. First off, I'm going to say that I am a h...

    love it ...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Aww, this was such a cute and funny start of a manga series! I love all the women in the Amar and seeing all their geeky passions. I've found it's difficult for me to find a nonfantasy manga that I enjoy but I'm sold on this one! The culture saturated throughout is ...

    Fun read! Parts were a little unbelievable with characters not being recognized when they were not dressed up and put together but overall an enjoyable read. I liked the inclusion of a young adult cross dresser who does not try to hide it from anyone. ...

    4 stars. This was so freaking cute! I absolutely adored this manga. The story is weird and hilarious, the characters are so lovable and adoring and the art style is super stinking cute. This was just a big ball of fluff. It doesn't take itself too seriously and yet it somehow manages t...

    I would lean more towards four & a half stars on this one. This was a whole lot of fun! I haven't read manga in ages & as I flicked through 'Princess Jellyfish' I realised how much I'd miss the humour and over the top characters that manga often provides. This book had me la...

    Of all the truth-is-weird manga to flit among Japanese publishers over the past decade, PRINCESS JELLYFISH is a clever work of metafiction whose time-capsule feel engenders as much respectful humor as it does eyebrow-raising nostalgia. It is an acquired taste: crossdressing, otaku priv...

    I'll be honest. When I first heard the title, I thought this was some odd magical girl manga. I think I was thinking of another series, but I seriously thought that for a long time. I'm surprised I never picked it up before now... Anyway, my initial thoughts from the title turned ou...

    I loved this first English-language volume of Princess Jellyfish. I wasn't sure I'd like this when Shea and I originally decided to read this for the manga monthly show, and this was because my expectations were off base. I thought with the "princess" in the title, this might be someth...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Aww, this was such a cute and funny start of a manga series! I love all the women in the Amar and seeing all their geeky passions. I've found it's difficult for me to find a nonfantasy manga that I enjoy but I'm sold on this one! The culture saturated throughout is ...

    Reread of volumes 1 and 2, I believe, now that I own the recently released omnibus. Original reviews for both were 4 stars. There are a lot of reasons why I love this series. The first and most simplistic reason is that it makes me happy. The premise is sweet and a little sad witho...

    Of all the truth-is-weird manga to flit among Japanese publishers over the past decade, PRINCESS JELLYFISH is a clever work of metafiction whose time-capsule feel engenders as much respectful humor as it does eyebrow-raising nostalgia. It is an acquired taste: crossdressing, otaku priv...

    "To share a pot with a stylish girl is to dine in hell!" Finally!!! I have been waiting for the longest of times for this to be translated into English. I was super tempted to buy the French edition and fake my way through it. (Which I might still do.) No need to fake it now. This w...

    I'll be honest. When I first heard the title, I thought this was some odd magical girl manga. I think I was thinking of another series, but I seriously thought that for a long time. I'm surprised I never picked it up before now... Anyway, my initial thoughts from the title turned ou...

    I loved this first English-language volume of Princess Jellyfish. I wasn't sure I'd like this when Shea and I originally decided to read this for the manga monthly show, and this was because my expectations were off base. I thought with the "princess" in the title, this might be someth...

    Amamizukan is not your average apartment building. For one thing, it?s a small, old-fashioned building of the type rarely seen these days. More importantly, all the residents are fujoshi (?rotten women?) who for one reason or another have fallen outside the society-approved get j...

    4/5 stars. I liked this! It took me a bit to get into but I really enjoyed it. There's so many different characters and personalities in this story, I'm intrigued to read more. :D ...

    I received this manga in my Landfall Freight box which is female focused comic book subscription box. (amazing, check it out). Anyways, I was a little skeptical. I have been thinking about getting into manga for a little while but didn't know where to start. I have had this for more th...

    There's a lot to like about Princess Jellyfish. Fictional portrayals (that aren't insulting) of groups of female nerds are rare, and groups that aren't so much united by a single nerdy interest as by the fact that they all have a slightly obsessive enthusiasm for something are rarer st...

    Decided to give this a try since my best friend said it was such a hilarious manga...and so far to me, it was okay. Not bad. I think it was a good setup. The main character was a bit too dramatic, but hopefully that will get settled as the story goes on. Wasn't too keen on her friends,...

    4 stars. This was so freaking cute! I absolutely adored this manga. The story is weird and hilarious, the characters are so lovable and adoring and the art style is super stinking cute. This was just a big ball of fluff. It doesn't take itself too seriously and yet it somehow manages t...

    I must say, I absolutely loved the anime, but like many animes, it was produced faster than the writer could finish the manga, and was seemingly cut off a bit short. Excitingly enough, the manga has finally been serialized in the United States by Kodansha Comics, and it is absolutely a...

    I would lean more towards four & a half stars on this one. This was a whole lot of fun! I haven't read manga in ages & as I flicked through 'Princess Jellyfish' I realised how much I'd miss the humour and over the top characters that manga often provides. This book had me la...

    A little busy in some of the panels and since I'm not very used to reading right to left, that made it harder to keep everything straight. I like the premise quite a lot, the jellyfish theme, combined with the lets-save-our-home theme. Banba is hilarious. (But what is up with that Inar...

    Finally, a josei manga that isn't a BL! I'm pretty sure there are many of those out there, but this is just the first I've found in North America. I really enjoyed this, I might continue on with the anime since its only 11 episodes. ...

    I would never have read this based on the cover or the description. SO glad I read a review of it online! SO funny, so heartfelt, with a fast-paced plot and plenty of good drama. ...

    Just wanted to mention, I put this review under the wrong book at first, but, none the less, I'm pretty sure it holds the same content for the most part. This is the actual book I read. I couldn't figure out how to edit it, at least not yet. First off, I'm going to say that I am a h...

    I. Love. This. So. Much. I've actually been collecting the series for a while, and I think I read the first volume/first half of this omnibus when it came out, but I wanted to wait a while before reading more. Princess Jellyfish is ridiculous. It's also hilarious, occasionally h...

    After watching the anime years ago, I finally decided to pick up the manga. And I absolutely loved it. It's full of humor and adorableness that I enjoy. The characters are just so fun to read about. I'll definitely be continuing the series in the future. ...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Aww, this was such a cute and funny start of a manga series! I love all the women in the Amar and seeing all their geeky passions. I've found it's difficult for me to find a nonfantasy manga that I enjoy but I'm sold on this one! The culture saturated throughout is ...

    strange, almost like a tanizaki pastiche. nevertheless it had a really deep effect on me im tryin to understand ...

    Fun read! Parts were a little unbelievable with characters not being recognized when they were not dressed up and put together but overall an enjoyable read. I liked the inclusion of a young adult cross dresser who does not try to hide it from anyone. ...

    Princess Jellyfish 2-in-1 Omnibus, Volume 1 by Akiko Higashimura 4/5 Stars Pros: + Art is beautiful, colouring is beautiful, jellyfish are beautiful. + Not same face syndrome at all! Everyone has different hairstyles, body types and even face structure! + The multiple POV is ...

    Reread of volumes 1 and 2, I believe, now that I own the recently released omnibus. Original reviews for both were 4 stars. There are a lot of reasons why I love this series. The first and most simplistic reason is that it makes me happy. The premise is sweet and a little sad witho...

    ~4-4.5/5 I have been wanting to read this for a while now. I watched the anime and was immediately obsessed. I knew it was only a matter of time, and was super excited when Kodansha announced they would be releasing it in two-in-ones. Firstly, it?s a very pretty, big volume. I wou...

    I am so excited to finally have an official, physical copy of this manga on my shelves! SO here I go, I'm going to try to properly express how much I love this series and hopefully someone out there will read this long, rambly review and be like "This passion, this excitement! It is so...

    Princess Jellyfish is one of my favourite shoujo manga and it's probably not what you're expecting from the title. It's the story of a group of female NEETs who are forced to overcome their social phobias when a redevelopment project threatens their home. The art is crisp and clear ...

    "To share a pot with a stylish girl is to dine in hell!" Finally!!! I have been waiting for the longest of times for this to be translated into English. I was super tempted to buy the French edition and fake my way through it. (Which I might still do.) No need to fake it now. This w...

    I'll be honest. When I first heard the title, I thought this was some odd magical girl manga. I think I was thinking of another series, but I seriously thought that for a long time. I'm surprised I never picked it up before now... Anyway, my initial thoughts from the title turned ou...

    I loved this first English-language volume of Princess Jellyfish. I wasn't sure I'd like this when Shea and I originally decided to read this for the manga monthly show, and this was because my expectations were off base. I thought with the "princess" in the title, this might be someth...

    Amamizukan is not your average apartment building. For one thing, it?s a small, old-fashioned building of the type rarely seen these days. More importantly, all the residents are fujoshi (?rotten women?) who for one reason or another have fallen outside the society-approved get j...

    4/5 stars. I liked this! It took me a bit to get into but I really enjoyed it. There's so many different characters and personalities in this story, I'm intrigued to read more. :D ...

    I received this manga in my Landfall Freight box which is female focused comic book subscription box. (amazing, check it out). Anyways, I was a little skeptical. I have been thinking about getting into manga for a little while but didn't know where to start. I have had this for more th...

    There's a lot to like about Princess Jellyfish. Fictional portrayals (that aren't insulting) of groups of female nerds are rare, and groups that aren't so much united by a single nerdy interest as by the fact that they all have a slightly obsessive enthusiasm for something are rarer st...

    Decided to give this a try since my best friend said it was such a hilarious manga...and so far to me, it was okay. Not bad. I think it was a good setup. The main character was a bit too dramatic, but hopefully that will get settled as the story goes on. Wasn't too keen on her friends,...

    4 stars. This was so freaking cute! I absolutely adored this manga. The story is weird and hilarious, the characters are so lovable and adoring and the art style is super stinking cute. This was just a big ball of fluff. It doesn't take itself too seriously and yet it somehow manages t...

    I must say, I absolutely loved the anime, but like many animes, it was produced faster than the writer could finish the manga, and was seemingly cut off a bit short. Excitingly enough, the manga has finally been serialized in the United States by Kodansha Comics, and it is absolutely a...

    I would lean more towards four & a half stars on this one. This was a whole lot of fun! I haven't read manga in ages & as I flicked through 'Princess Jellyfish' I realised how much I'd miss the humour and over the top characters that manga often provides. This book had me la...

    A little busy in some of the panels and since I'm not very used to reading right to left, that made it harder to keep everything straight. I like the premise quite a lot, the jellyfish theme, combined with the lets-save-our-home theme. Banba is hilarious. (But what is up with that Inar...

    Finally, a josei manga that isn't a BL! I'm pretty sure there are many of those out there, but this is just the first I've found in North America. I really enjoyed this, I might continue on with the anime since its only 11 episodes. ...

    I would never have read this based on the cover or the description. SO glad I read a review of it online! SO funny, so heartfelt, with a fast-paced plot and plenty of good drama. ...

    Just wanted to mention, I put this review under the wrong book at first, but, none the less, I'm pretty sure it holds the same content for the most part. This is the actual book I read. I couldn't figure out how to edit it, at least not yet. First off, I'm going to say that I am a h...

    I. Love. This. So. Much. I've actually been collecting the series for a while, and I think I read the first volume/first half of this omnibus when it came out, but I wanted to wait a while before reading more. Princess Jellyfish is ridiculous. It's also hilarious, occasionally h...

    After watching the anime years ago, I finally decided to pick up the manga. And I absolutely loved it. It's full of humor and adorableness that I enjoy. The characters are just so fun to read about. I'll definitely be continuing the series in the future. ...

    love it ...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Aww, this was such a cute and funny start of a manga series! I love all the women in the Amar and seeing all their geeky passions. I've found it's difficult for me to find a nonfantasy manga that I enjoy but I'm sold on this one! The culture saturated throughout is ...

    strange, almost like a tanizaki pastiche. nevertheless it had a really deep effect on me im tryin to understand ...

    Fun read! Parts were a little unbelievable with characters not being recognized when they were not dressed up and put together but overall an enjoyable read. I liked the inclusion of a young adult cross dresser who does not try to hide it from anyone. ...

    4.25 stars ...
