Princess Jellyfish

Princess Jellyfish

Tsukimi is an otaku and jellyfish enthusiast whose only means of coping with the world is to reject it: she and her friends live in a house they declare a man-free zone, generally avoid 'stylish people', and spend their days blissfully bonding over geeky rituals. As misfortune would have it, their convenient existence is about to be turned on its head by the arrival of Kuranosuke, a seemingly beautiful young woman who is actually a beautiful young man. While he may be strange even by their standards, Kuranosuke embodies everything Tsukimi secretly dreams of being - a princess as ethereal as a floating jellyfish - and promises the kind of mind-boggling adventures only possible when geek meets chic!

Focusing on a group of older female otaku and a crossdressing boy in their midst, both Genshiken Nidaime and Kuragehime are dramatic and funny all at once. Genshiken's earlier seasons are pretty different from Nidaime, so if you have seen either Genshiken Nidaime or Kuragehime, I'd highly recommend the other.

In the world of a Japanese otaku, doujinshi – fan made manga – reigns supreme. Kazuki is a would-be famous doujinshi artist who loves nothing more than to create it, but the usual rushed manuscripts and lackluster sales derail him along the way. Together with the spirited Eimi, loud Taichi, bumbling Subaru and the rest of the gang, Kazuki balances his career as an artist with some good old fashioned fun. But the most important question remains: will Kazuki's talents ever get him a spot in the convention’s coveted Kabe Circle?

Denki-Gai

Denki-Gai

A blush-inducing,​ coming-of-age comedy about manga-loving book store employees!! The characters are all hard-core manga fans and maniacs of some sort,​ and work at the comic shop "Uma no Hone.​" On a daily basis,​ they display new releases,​ shrink-wrap comics,​ shudder at their lack of feminine qualities,​ question their love for porn literature.​.. and basically have fun while working hard (?). Girls and guys call each other by nicknames and some begin to develop close relationships!

Yuuki Aito is a perverted and hapless author of ecchi manga. Under pressure from his hot-tempered editor, Miharu, Yuuki works alongside his assistants, the long-suffering Ashisu and the enthusiastic Rinna, to finish his manuscript on time. But with Miharu berating Yuuki for taking porn breaks and his insatiable lust for panties, and the underwear-loving mangaka panicking over every ecchi dilemma he faces, keeping his manga out of the bottom of the weekly rankings will be a difficult task…
