News Magazine: Princess Jellyfish/Kuragehime Gets Film in 2015
posted on 2014-04-07 03:00 EDT
The May issue of Tsukuru, a magazine dedicated to Japan's mass media, reported on Monday that a film adaptation of Akiko Higashimura's Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime) manga has been green-lit for next year. The magazine does not specify if the film is live-action or anime.
Plain, timid and obsessed with jellyfish, Tsukimi is a far cry from her idea of a princess. Her tepid life as a jobless illustrator comes complete with roommates who harbor diehard hobbies that solidify their status as hopeless social rejects. These wallflowers run a tight, nun-like ship, but their no-men-allowed-not-no-one-not-no-how bubble is unwittingly burst after Tsukimi brings home a rescued sea jelly and a beauty queen... who's actually a guy.
When the threat of losing their cozy convent inspires this glamour boy to turn the neurotic entourage into a portrait of success, will Tsukimi take her chance to bloom, or will she end up a hot mess?
