Description - Princess Jellyfish 1 by Akiko Higashimura
Tsukimi Kurashita has a strange fascination with jellyfish. She's loved them from a young age and has carried that love with her to her new life in the big city of Tokyo. There, she resides in Amamizukan, a safe-haven for girl geeks who regularly gush over a range of things from trains to Japanese dolls. However, a chance meeting at a pet shop has Tsukimi crossing paths with one of the things that the residents of Amamizukan have been desperately trying to avoid-a beautiful and fashionable woman! But there's much more to this woman than her trendy clothes! This odd encounter is only the beginning of a new and unexpected path for Tsukimi and her friends. Story Locale- Tokyo, Japan Series Overview- Tsukimi Kurashita moves into the Amamizukan to take refuge with other geek girls. But real life has a way of crashing in, even when you're hiding among socially-inept manga artists, history buffs, and doll fanatics. A chance encounter with a young woman (who's actually a man - and the black sheep in a wealthy family) puts Tsukimi on a path she never thought she'd travel- that of fashion designer and entrepreneur! But with so many valuable secrets floating around, predators are bound to smell blood in the water.
