Average Rating

Ever since her late mother took her to an aquarium when she was young, Tsukimi Kurashita has been obsessed with jellyfish, comparing their flowing tentacles to a princess's white dress. Now living with five other unemployed otaku women, 19-year-old Tsukimi spends her days as a social outcast dreaming of becoming an illustrator. However, her life changes forever when one day, a beautiful woman unexpectedly helps her save a jellyfish in a local pet store. From then on, the stranger—confident, fashionable, and the complete opposite of Tsukimi and her roommates—begins to regularly visit the girls' building. This trendy hipster, though appearing shallow at first, harbors some secrets of her own, starting with the fact that "she" isn't really a girl at all, but a wealthy male college student named Kuranosuke Koibuchi!

Relateable anime about a group of girl otaku with different kinds of hobbies. Wish it had more episodes.


The story of this anime is highly engaging and well done. Characters are top notch. Definitely approaches a masterpiece level.


Funny shit and one of the better all female casts.


Fun show. It’s targeted more towards women, but as a man I thought it was great and worth a watch.


Seriously good series about otaku of all kinds—not anime, just people wth obsessions. It’s a lot of things. The only problem is its length.


Absolutely loved it! Now one of my favourite anime. Watched it in one day and now I’m so sad there are only 11 episodes. Highly recommend.


An endearing ensemble cast accentuate the well-developed main characters. A visually and narratively engaging piece.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
