    I'm always on the verge of giving Princess Jellyfish 5 stars, but then settle on 4. This time, though, I'm going with the full five, thanks to these things: 1) Minimal amount of evil blackmailing landshark lady. Hurrah! 2) Lots of scenes of Tsukimi and Shu together. 3) The flashback to Shu and Kuranosuke as kids! ;_; 4) Just Shu feels all over the place, basically. The minus point this time goes to Kuranosuke thinking that all girls must like frills and ribbons.

    My favorite scene in this book is the one where Kuranosuke tallies up how much his current outfit costs, $3000, and falls on the floor when the Amars gals tally up their own outfits and it cost $50... for all of them. The Amars, unmotivated at the best of times, get discouraged when they start to learn just how much effort their budding cottage fashion house will take. Their cozy, nerd-friendly living space is at stake, so they'd better get their act together!

The Amars, unmotivated at the best of times, get discouraged when they start to learn just how much effort their budding cottage fashion house will take. Their cozy, nerd-friendly living space is at stake, so they'd better get their act together! That situation isn't entirely resolved as of the end of this book, but I have confidence that, as usual, they'll resolve things in their own silly way. I loved the discussions of fabrics in the latter half of this volume. While I'm more on the Amars end of the spectrum when it comes to dressing myself, the luxury of well-made, fancy clothes is appealing, even if that appeal never manages to find its way into my real life.

    Another good volume. I like the drama and comedy. They include translation notes after each of the individual volumes (since it's an omnibus), which is helpful, but I really wish manga companies included them after the chapter so that it's easier to remember what they're referencing. Hope there's some relationship growth between the characters in the next volume. Another good volume. I like the drama and comedy.

    Another grand addition to the saga of Princess Jellyfish. Of course the Chauffeur is an otaku for Benz! I really loved how he got to shine a bit more than usual at the start of this omnibus. I was pretty worried when Kuranosuke's started talking about India but that seems to be going pretty well...

I guess I do have time before my final series review so perhaps I will remember this question at opportune times to do more digging. Besides these new characters, it was nice to see the Amar's run into more than a few issues. As someone who complains about magical thinking in storylines, it is important to me whenever characters face believable obstacles. Plus, making clothes is a hobby I haven't be able to indulge in for a while so it's fun to read about the development of a fashion business in a bit more detail even it's still just mostly fun and silly.

    4/5 Wee! What a great fashion show! Can we talk about how hilarious everyone is? I love the Amars ladies. I love them so much! They make this manga! I also love how it's turning into a fashion label and Tsukimi gets to be the designer. It's sweet to see her open up and realize that she is good at something, and she has purpose. I think she's been so shy and doubts herself a lot. I also really appreciate the other Amars girls start to open up about their feelings, and the way Jiji steps up to the 4/5 Wee!

It's interesting, but somehow the age difference between Shu and Tsukimi doesn't get mentioned a lot, and I don't think of it. They are so adorable, can we get more interaction between them, please? Also, how is it that Kurano has more style in his pinky finger than I've ever had in my real human life? Ugh.

    (TLDR; Another great installment, but now I am hungry for sukiyaki) Thanks to this volume all I want to eat tonight is hotpot/sukiyaki, but I have to work a night shift so I guess I will starve from disappointment since I cannot get groceries and there is no way I will have the time or space to cook that at the base. Maybe tomorrow? Or in a few weeks? Gahhh that's too long.

    A bit of progress this time. I'm glad that they don't make creating a fashion label seem easy like so many shows/movies. One overlooked feature of this series: The translator's notes. They really take the time to explain anything the reader may not understand due to cultural gaps. A bit of progress this time.

    It's not that I thought this book was worse than the previous three installments because you're probably gonna have to set wild dogs on me and beat me with a stick to get me to stop reading it. It's just this volume was HELLA slow. The previous volume ended with the girls having to get the Nunnery ready for the fashion show, this volume opens with the show (which takes one chapter), the Nuns and Kuranosuke taking custom orders for the jellyfish dresses and then it just sorta flounders.

Kuranosuke is looking for cheaper, easier and faster ways to make the dresses, the Nuns are exhausted of making the dresses, and that's the rest of the volume. Still though, I absolutely love this series and, since this volume marks the departure of the manga and anime being intertwined, I'm really excited to continue on. Oh! But I did learn how to get a grape juice stain out of clothes! So there's that. #themoreyouknow

    Does anybody in Amars know what they're doing anymore? (No.) Does anybody in Amars realize how awesome they would be if they weren't scared of their own shadow? (No.) Will Kuranosuke ever realize he's spent more money trying to save Amars than he'll ever make in order to save it? (No.) There isn't a lot of obvious progress for our dear nuns. But here in Volume Four, progress bubbles beneath the surface; just as it was in the beginning, so as it is now: Tsukimi has no idea what she's getting hers Does anybody in Amars know what they're doing anymore? (No.) Does anybody in Amars realize how awesome they would be if they weren't scared of their own shadow? (No.) Will Kuranosuke ever realize he's spent more money trying to save Amars than he'll ever make in order to save it? (No.) There isn't a lot of obvious progress for our dear nuns. But here in Volume Four, progress bubbles beneath the surface; just as it was in the beginning, so as it is now: Tsukimi has no idea what she's getting herself into. The current volume marks an interesting venture into the professional realm. The girls are more studiously trying to meet Kurako's expectations of what it means to be productive (functional) adults, and with few exceptions, they do surprisingly well (especially Jiji-sama!). It's been a long slog, but it's clear to see that Tsukimi's buddies aren't so bad after all. The hilarious mess that was their fashion show aside, it is abundantly clear that order, discipline, and a cool head are what these nuns need right now. The problem? Order, discipline, and a cool head don't exactly come naturally to the Amars. Such is life. The importance of Volume Four rests in the growth of Shu-san and Kuranosuke, separately. Shu-san takes on the mantle of a protective elder brother. He has an odd relationship with his half-brother, to say the least, but it's evident that Shu-san cares about his family through and through. Volume Four has a surprise "guest" appearance of sorts, and it's all one can do but squeal with joy that Shu-san is the arbiter of common sense (and courtesy) at the big reveal. Now, granted, Shu-san is still a virgin; he is still horribly clumsy around Tsukimi; and he is still remarkably unqualified for wading through the limelight his younger brother summons . . . but all in all, Shu-san is reliable. And in the end, that's all that counts. Kuranosuke grows, too. He finally stops seeing Tsukimi as a "project" or as a charity effort, and begins treating her as a peer. It's gradual, and there are moments when the young man shakes his head and convinces himself that he's grateful to be doing what's best for her as opposed to what's profitable for himself. When Kuranosuke says, "It's not like I have special feelings for her," he is as much in denial about his affection for Tsukimi as he is mustering the courage to acknowledge that there's something more about this jellyfish otaku other than . . . well . . . jellyfish stuff. PRINCESS JELLYFISH remains a funny and engaging manga. This volume has a lot going for it. And although one wishes there was some substantive continuation of the previous installment's harder-edged relational drama, what character growth one receives in exchange is well worth the imperative to wait another volume.

    Once I picked up this manga I simply could not put it down. I read this on my birthday and it marked one of the best birthdays I have ever had. Tsukimi is probably one of the most realest anime characters I have gotten the pleasure of reading as I watch her dream of becomming a dress designer I was in complete support.

With her mother's passing and how she has coped with that with other women who have been somewhat rejected from society either from looking strange or being a weeb, the crew has great character and spirit. Watching them all become beautiful through the work of Kuranosuke was great. I really enjoyed the contrast between Kuranosuke and the rest of the cast. I really liked the political undertone of this series with Kuranosuke's father being into politics and how his mother supported his enjoyment for dressing feminine. I feel that Kuranosuke was the type to simply push individuality not only for himself but to also expand the individuality and break the confines for Tsukimi and the neets. This slice of life is absolutely incredible and the pace was perfect. I never thought the writing was too fast or slow here. The anime art is also bubbly and stylish. I really enjoyed the style of the illustration and fashion that was shown here. I still often remember the jellyfish dress and just how beautiful the cover art was. I recommend this manga entirely.

    Another fun drama, though I'll admit the nuances and challenges of actually setting up a fashion label and producing clothing is a little less interesting to me. I'm glad they aren't just magically making everything work, but I'd rather see more character interactions and relationship developments. Tsukimi is definitely growing and changing for the better - I really hope she continues to learn that she is a person worthy of love and acceptance.

Tsukimi is definitely growing and changing for the better - I really hope she continues to learn that she is a person worthy of love and acceptance. The trust Kuranosuke has placed in her is helping her step up to the occasion. This fashion line has become really important to Kuranosuke as well, and even though she's keeping her distance for now, I'm really hoping he gets to reconnnect with his mother again at some point. Shu is coming more and more over to his brother's side over time - sure, he gets frustrated when his brother's antics cause him trouble, but he truly has a soft spot for him. He can tell how much Kuranosuke misses his mom, and is willing to help her have something connected to him, perhaps because he knows it would please him. Shu obviously has feelings for Tsukimi, and wants to help her, but I don't think he would loan them the startup money if it wasn't for his care for Kuranosuke. I'm hoping that tricky woman stays far away.

    This one is getting a higher rating, because we got to see more development between the characters. I’m loving Banba and Mayaya’s friendship I just feel like I finally really know these girls. Shu’s driver gives a great speech about how anyone, of any gender, should be able to appreciate fashion and wear dresses if they want to.

Hoping comments like this are being made to show people how NOT to act just to appease a homophobic society, not because he actually feels that way.) While I’m not very interested in this fashion business plot line, it is introducing more drama among the Amars and others, which should be interesting! I also like the new character, Nisha, though I’m a little worried about the Indian rep. Idk why she has a different dialect (it’s like in Harry Potter when only Hagrid speaks differently than everyone else and it’s written that way... why is that necessary?)

    Another fun volume. I appreciate the small moments of Kuranosuke with his mom as a child. From early on in the series, I accepted that this manga does not reflect the actual fashion industry at all, and I was chill rolling with it (I don't demand realism in my escapism), but it did start including more business-oriented details like outsourcing work and the practicality of manufacturing certain garments for different purposes.

My ignorant self could not tell what was real insight and what was made up, so I'll give the author that credit. If I am being honest, I am not a fan of Shu and Tsukimi. I know a lot of folks think their relationship is cute, but to me, he just seems in love with his idea of a perfect housewife which he projects onto Tsukimi. I just want to see the characters move past each other to other things/relationships, but that doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

    3.75 stars really. I do like thus series but sometimes some of the characters are just too ridiculous, bordering on annoying. And it is very clear to me now (or perhaps I'd just forgotten since it has been so long since I read the previous volume) that Kuranosuke's father cheated on Shu's mother. I don't remember seeing her before so when she showed up in this volume it surprised me. And everyone treats it like it's nothing!

    I feel like this series hasn't got into its stride yet - like I love that Tsukimi really loves that the Amars support her and the conversation between Chieko and her friend about how the clothes they are making are not for them, and how you see a bit of flashback from the brother and how Kuranosuke's childhood is more tragic that you previously realised. These all hint to very interesting things and I cannot wait to see how they develop, but it's just about the half point of the series so I woul I feel like this series hasn't got into its stride yet - like I love that Tsukimi really loves that the Amars support her and the conversation between Chieko and her friend about how the clothes they are making are not for them, and how you see a bit of flashback from the brother and how Kuranosuke's childhood is more tragic that you previously realised.

    Unfortunately, I had to drop Princess Jellyfish with this volume. The earlier arcs--the ones the anime and movie adapted--were much more character-driven, with a slice-of-life vibe. The two volumes in this collection are exclusively having to do with the heroines setting up a clothing line, and while it's a worthy storyline, I'm remiss to find out that fashion arcs are the basis of the series going forward.

    Aside from the last half of the book getting wordy and lagging a bit with all the fashion/business jargon, this volume was a delight. You can see the turning point in the series clearly here, and it's exciting to see the characters on the cusp of something big. Beautiful art as always. Princess Jellyfish is a solid favourite of mine, and I'm thrilled it's being printed in English to add to my collection. This series deserves shelf space.

    The anime sort of influenced how I was viewing this timeline, but four (or I guess technically 8, since these are 2-in-1s) volumes in, I see the story shifting in tone and new plots developing and I have a new appreciation for how well this story is paced. Every character is really starting to become more nuanced. Things are getting more serious and real interpersonal conflict is starting to develop.

    Better than the previous omnibus! Here the story progresses nicely as the Amars find their fashion show success but then feel uncertain if they can really go on with the brand and the work it demands. It was nice to see feelings of each girl and Kuranosuke too, even though I still think Mayaya is drawn a bit too extremely with her antics. The jellyfish dresses (and Kuranosuke's clothes in general) are as pretty as always! Better than the previous omnibus!

    I'm glad that Inari's creepy subplot is being sidelined, but I'm sort of weirded out by the Indian fabric merchants and their accents and quirks. It's making me wonder how people in Japan stereotype people in other Asian countries. I think the book is benefiting from its increasing focus on the fashion business and its decreasing reliance on otaku humor. Kuranosuke is still the best thing about the book, but Tsukimi is pretty great too.

I think the book is benefiting from its increasing focus on the fashion business and its decreasing reliance on otaku humor. Kuranosuke is still the best thing about the book, but Tsukimi is pretty great too.

    Another cute installment of the story. It is becoming even more clear which brother is taking her interest. I know we can all predict how it should (hopefully) end but we are still in that worrisome period where we still aren't fully sure what will happen! I will say that old couple at the end who own the candy shop, I love them! They are so cute and hilarious. And the author notes at the end it's like she understands me. lol. Her weird obsession comments speak to the Otaku in me. :D Another cute installment of the story. It is becoming even more clear which brother is taking her interest.

    The romance between Tsukimi and Shu start up, and I am not liking this pairing (they are not my ship!!). But I am still loving the fashion talk. And I'm growing on the out-bursts of the Amars. What I really love in this volume was meeting with Nisha, the Indian fabric guru for the Jelly Fish brand. She really brings the reality to the group about what it takes to be in the fashion apparel business.

    Still so in love with this manga. We get to see the culmination of all the Amars hard work in the fashion show at Amamizu-kan, and there's lots of great character development throughout, but I really found the pace slowed down a lot after the big event. There were plenty of cuuuute Tsukimi/Shu moments, so I'm a happy camper. More please! Still so in love with this manga.
