Princess Jellyfish #1 by Akiko Higashimura

Originally published in: 2016 (Japanese edition 2009)

What it’s about: A house full of geeky manga-illustrating women is shaken up by the threat to sell and raze their home and by a pair of dreamy brothers infiltrating their women-only world.

What made me pick it up: I’m not a big manga reader, but a colleague recommended it to me promising that it was a good choice for readers not used to manga.

My favorite things: This is a cute story with fun characters and nothing too far off the wall. I love the Higashimura’s ability to poke fun at herself and her world of manga creation through these characters.

Who it’s great for: Good for readers who are interested in manga but don’t know where to start.

Abby’s rating: three-and-a-half-shells
