Princess Jellyfish, February 28th, 2012!!!

Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on February 28th, its Princess Jellyfish!   Ok so the name of this anime doesn't sound like something amazing, but its actually a really cute series.

It all starts with jellyfish lover Tsukimi Kurashita, when trying to save a jellyfish at a store meets Kuranoske Koibuchi who is introduced as Kurako a very fashionable girl, who helps her save the jellyfish.  That night Kurako goes home with Tsukimi and in the morning Tsukimi finds out that Kurako is actually a guy who likes to cross dress!   No one in Tsukimi's apartment must find out because they are all big geeky anti-boy unemployed girls.
Kurako keeps coming around to Tsukimi's apartment and little by little they become friends and Kurako earns everyone else's trust as well.  Until one day when they find out that the apartments need to be sold because the area is going to be under construction.   The girls and Kurako must do all they can to buy the apartment complex so that it won't be torn down.

This series is hilarious, you got your little geeky girl who doesn't believe she is beautiful trying to be as average as possible.  But when Kurako gives her a makeover she becomes a lovely princess.  She believes jellyfish are beautiful and that she is not.  I personally enjoyed the lovely parts, the hilarious scenes, and the inspiring story of these friends growing up and trying what they can to save a place that's important to them.
Although I thought the series was a bit short and a few things were left unanswered it was still a very enjoyable series.
It's definitively worth a check, special features include:
Princess Jellyfish Heroes (Parts 1-4)
Go, Sisterhood Explorers! (Parts 1-6)
Tsukimi and Jiji’s Octopus Tour
The Princess Jellyfish Field Guide
Episode 1 & 11 commentary
Promotional videos
Textless songs

Or if you just want to check it out you can check it out subtitled on

I gives this series 3.5 our of 5 stars just as a series itself.
