- 1 Season
Princess Jellyfish is the story of a shy girl,Tsukimi Kurashita, who lives in an apartment complex for women only. The anime is based off a Josei manga of the same name. Josei is manga that is marketed to women ranging from late teens to young adults. Tsukimi has an intense love for jellyfish, and when the audience first meets her, she is trying to go to a museum exhibit about them, but losses her nerve due to her lack of proper dress. For the rest of the day, Tsukimi is reflective about all the things that have happened to her in the past, like the death of her mother. To cheer herself, Tsukimi goes to a local pet shop and visits Clara, her favorite spotted jellyfish. The plot thickens when Tsukimi sees that a Moon jellyfish is in the tank with Clara. This poisonous jellyfish will kill Clara. Finding the courage to speak, Tsukimi tries to warn the shop-owner about the danger Clara is in. The shop-owner will not listen to Tsukimi, and she leaves the shop discouraged. On her way out of the store, Tsukimi bumps into a very pretty, fasionable woman. After hearing Tsukimi's sad story, the pretty woman marches back into the pet shop and gets the owner to give Tsukimi the predestined jellyfish. The two women and the jellyfish return to Tsukimi's apartment where they put Clara in the bathtub for the night, and become great friends. The next day Tsukimi receives a shock; her lovely house guest is in fact not a woman, but a man! Kuranosuke Koibuchi is a cross-dressing man who comes from a very prosperous and political family. Kuranosuke has no desire to join his family in politics and so dresses as a woman as a form of rebellion. The comedy of the show revolves around Tsukimi's attempts to keep Kuranosuke's true gender a secret. If Tsukimi's apartment complex finds out that Kuranosuke is male, she could be kicked out of her home. This anime about gender role reversal teaches the values of friendship and acceptance.
