Flower Mound, Texas (May 12, 2011) – Following the exclusive U.S. simulcast of the Fall 2010 noitaminA block series “Princess Jellyfish” (“Kuragehime’) in February, FUNimation Entertainment asked fans on its Facebook page what they thought of the series and whether they would purchase the series should it be offered on DVD or Blu-ray.
The resulting response was an overwhelming “Yes, please!”:
Today, FUNimation Entertainment announced that it has also acquired the U.S. home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise rights from Fuji Television and will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.
“Princess Jellyfish” is a romantic-comedy based on the award-winning manga by Akiko Higashimura. Animation for the series is done by Brain’s Base (“Spice and Wolf II”, “Baccano!”) and is directed by Takahiro Omori (“Baccano!,” “Hell Girl,” and “Durarara!!”). The story follows Tsukimi and her wallflower friends who are hopeless nerds with bizarre hobbies. Their crippling social anxieties keep them from setting foot outside the all-girl apartment complex they inhabit, but a late night jellyfish rescue mission and the arrival of a “Stylish Girl” turn their lives upside down!
