Rated 5 out of 5 by from This story is amazing I read this after watching the anime (which I love). The story is adorable and easy to relate to (if you are a major dork like me). I like how the protagonist isn't just a 2D character and I love how she changes the people around her, even when she doesn't think she's anything important. This is a must read for anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Book For the Inner Awkward Person in Us All This manga I found the least weird of the manga I've been reading recently -- mostly because it is firmly grounded in reality. There are no magic talking dogs, or people who can supernaturally change their appearance or a tentacle alien who wants to be a teacher or mystical ocean things. This manga is about a group of socially awkward young ladies that all live together enjoying their obsessions and avoiding societies prescribed roles for them. This changes when they meet a super stylish and pretty lady who invades their lives. I really enjoyed this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must buy If you fancy yourself a fan of fun characters, great humor and an interesting take of humanity, then this is for you. I found the anime randomly one day and have been hooked on the series since. Princess Jellyfish will remain on of my favorite manga series for all time.
