"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" --

Tsukimi lives in a geeky commune of fiercely celibate under-employed 30-something otaku women. Her peaceful life is turned upside down by the sudden arrival of a Kuranosuke, a stylish young man who wears beautiful dresses. This is very much josei (woman's) manga, so exaggerated romantic comedy ensues as Kuranosuke and his slightly evil older brother slowly work their way into the reclusive women's hearts. I wanted to hate this silly series, but it's way too much fun!

A cute and approachable manga for someone who doesn't often read within the genre. Very fun!

I do enjoy this manga. Please make sure you read the back glossary of the book as you read or afterwards to get some cultural referencing. This manga series starts of slow and it was hard for me to get into as the characters seem rather strange (part of that is explained in the glossary), in an unusual way for manga... for one, over half the secondary characters are 30+. That being said, the main characters are younger, early 20s. They are primarily women who have no jobs and are otaku (obsessed with something to a degree of almost (or being) being a savant in the matter), not society's favorite people, and have a rule against boys in their dorm building. Some of the situation is drama-comedy with one of the main characters being a cross dresser that enters the apartment on a frequent basis, and a little bit of a romance starting with the cross-dresser's brother. That being said, there is a slightly more serious note in the form of a manipulative female antagonist and the fact that the whole area, which is a traditional sort of street mixed with Otaku havens, is going to be sold (including the apartment). The secondary characters make the whole thing lighter and feel less dramatic and almost comedic. Overall, a light read, worth reading through the series, but not a top-of-the charts kind of series. Due to social expectations on many characters being the basis for much of the story, I recommend a slightly older reading audience of 16 and up.
