Princess Jellyfish Manga Heads Toward Final Chapter
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's November issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine announced on Friday that Akiko Higashimura's Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime) manga is headed toward its final chapter.
Higashimura resumed the series in July after putting it on hiatus in October. During the hiatus she drew two prequel chapters and a special chapter of the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Kodansha shipped the 15th compiled volume on January 13.
The Princess Jellyfish manga inspired a 2010 television anime series that Funimation released in North America. Kodansha Comics describes the story:
Tsukimi, who has loved jellyfish from a young age, resides in Amamizukan, a fangirl-only dorm. One evening at the local pet store, Tsukimi sees a lovely jellyfish in danger, but a beautiful woman comes to the rescue. They go back to Amamizukan together, but this "woman"... is actually a man!
Crunchyroll publishes the manga in English on its online platform. Kodansha Comics will debut the series in English in print in February 2016.
Higashimura is also currently drawing Tokyo Tarareba-jō in Kodansha's Kiss, Himo Zairu in Kodansha's Morning two, and Yukibana no Tora in Shogakukan's Hibana magazine. She ended her award-winning Kakukaku Shikajika manga in January.
