After its adaptation into a popular anime and live-action film, Princess Jellyfish is her first work to be released in English. Her follow-up, Tokyo Tarareba Girls, is also out now in English in print and digital formats.
"One of the best anime and manga for beginners. Enthusiasm - geeky
and otherwise - is power in Princess Jellyfish. Enthusiasm saves
the day and paves the road to the future." -Kotaku
"Princess Jellyfish's ambition is simple: to tell a delightful story in a delightful way... It's a pretty deadly one-two punch." -Anime News Network
"A highly entertaining story with sweet romance, lots of humor, and unique characters [with an] overall message of accepting yourself and others." -Geek Mom
