Akiko Higashimura's Princess Jellyfish Manga Resumes in June

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Series went on hiatus in January 2016

The June issue of Kodansha's Kiss magazine revealed on April 25 that Akiko Higashimura's Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime) manga will resume in the August issue on June 24. The manga went on hiatus in January 2016, after having just resumed in July 2015 from a separate hiatus.

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!

The manga revealed in 2015 that it was nearing its final chapter

Higashimura launched the series in Kiss in 2008, and Kodansha published the manga's 16th compiled book volume in May 2016. Crunchyroll publishes the manga in English on its online platform, and Kodansha Comics debuted the series in English in print in February 2016. The manga inspired a 2010 television anime series that Funimation released in North America and a 2014 live-action film. The manga is nominated for an Eisner Award.

The June issue of Kiss also published the final chapter of Higashimura's Tokyo Tarareba Girls (Tokyo Tarareba Musume) manga, which inspired a live-action series that premiered on January 18.
