17th Manga Division Jury Selections

Kurage Hime (The Jellyfish Princess)



This comedy manga surreally depicts female otaku (people with obsessive interests) who devote all their attention to their hobbies. A jellyfish otaku girl, Tsukimi Kurashita, who came to Tokyo with the aim of becoming an illustrator, and the second son of a political family, Kuranosuke Koibuchi, whose hobby is wearing women’s clothes, have various adventures. This work is a mixture of heartbreaking love and the author’s unique sense of humor.
