Princess Jellyfish's Higashimura to End Kakukaku Shikajika Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
The semi-autobiographical series tells the story of Akiko Hayashi, a third-year high school girl who wants to be a manga artist.
Higashimura's Kuragehime manga inspired the 2010 Princess Jellyfish television anime series, which Funimation released in North America. She is also currently writing Tokyo Tarareba-jō for Kodansha's Kiss and will write a series in Shogakukan's Hibana when the magazine launches in March. Her earlier series Omo ni Naitemasu inspired a live-action television series in 2012.
