Summary
  • Volume 1: "Tsukimi Kurashita has a strange fascination with jellyfish. She's loved them from a young age and has carried that love with her to her new life in the big city of Tokyo. There, she resides in Amamizukan, a safe-haven for girl geeks who regularly gush over a range of things from trains to Japanese dolls. However, a chance meeting at a pet shop has Tsukimi crossing paths with one of the things that the residents of Amamizukan have been desperately trying to avoid--a beautiful and fashionable woman! But there's much more to this woman than her trendy clothes! This odd encounter is only the beginning of a new and unexpected path for Tsukimi and her friends."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 2: "With the geeky paradise of Amamizukan threatened by redevelopment plans, Tsukimi and Amars must spring into action. But the wily Inari-san and her hold on Shu forces Kuranosuke to pull out all the stops: money, blackmail, and ... fashion?! Though Amamizukan still struggles with Kuranosuke's stylish ways, the neighborhood fashionista has too much to lose, whether it's a hidden identity or priceless friendships. Tsukimi gets the chance to make her jellyfish dreams into a glamorous reality, but that means breaking out of her bubble! Can these misfit princesses save their castle? -- Publisher's description
  • Volume 3: "Inari, the aggressive vixen of redevelopment, ramps up her efforts to buy out Amamizu-kan, where Tsukimi and her freinds live. But Kuranosuke has a fabulous plan of attack--turn Tsukimi's jellyfish designs into a reality! Will becoming real fashion designers be more that Amars can handle? Meanwhile, Shu's interest in Tsukimi drives Kuranosuke to confront some feelings he's never dealt with before ..."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 4: "The night of the fashion show for Tsukimi and Kuranosuke's jelly fish brand has finallly arrived. They pulled out all the stops to make Amamizu-kan into an enchanting wonderland--even Mayaya has transformed into a chic model! The show brings some much-needed attention to the tetro building, but will exposure be enough to save the Amars and their home? When their fashion line becomes a hit success, the girls scramble to satisfy their customers. With the help of their new colleague Nisha, a savvy Indian expat who knows all about the textile insutry, the just might make it work! ... But is Tsukimi ready to leave her quiet life behind for good?"--Publisher's description
  • Volume 5: "With the help of Amars and their savvy new ally Nisha, Tsukimi's jellyfish designs are slowly taking shape as a real clothing line. There's no time to waste if the group wants to save Amamizukan and make a splash in the fashion world, and that means churning out new dresses--and fast! As if Tsukimi weren't already overwhelmed, Shu makes it clear that he's ready to make a romantic commitment to her. For a geek girl who's never even had a boyfriend, these advances may be too much to handle. And Tsukimi isn't the only one struggling--with his brother's feelings out in the open, Kuranosuke must figure out how he fits into Tsukimi's life."--Publisher's description
  • Volume 6: "In order to save Amamizukan, the girls decide to put up an exhibition of their work. When the Jelly Fish dresses catch the eye of Asia's greatest fashion influencer, Kai, it's not only the dresses that the mogul wants--it's the designer herself. Tsukimi and the gang are about to get the massive break they need, but at what price ... ? Afraid that he may lose Tsukimi, Kuranosuke must come to terms with what his true purpose for starting Jelly Fish once was. Meanwhile, Shu learns of the heartbreaking history of Kuranosuke's mother, while Chieko's mother makes a discovery that seals the fate of Amamizukan ... " -- Publisher's description
