Akiko Higashimura’s Princess Jellyfish manga will resume after a year long hiatus.

The series will resume in the August issue of Kodansha’s Kiss magazine on June 25. It first went on hiatus in January 2016, after having just returned from a previous hiatus in June 2015.

Published by Kodansha Comics in the west, Princess Jellyfish follows Tsukimi, a young girl living in a fangirls-only dorm, and a cross-dressing man - code named Kurako to hide his gender - who soon lives with them. What follows is a wonderful lighthearted story, as Kurako gives Tsukimi’s life a makeover, teaching them about beauty.

The series was successful enough to warrant an anime serial adaption in 2010 by animators Brian’s Base, and a live-action film in 2014. The series was first serialised in 2008 and you can read the manga online on Crunchyroll.
