Akiko Higashimura’s Princess Jellyfish manga is becoming a live-action TV series.

According to Comic Natalie as translated by AnimeNewsNetwork, Fuji TV have greenlit a live-action TV series scheduled to air in Japan in January.

Jun’ichi Ishikawa (April Fools, Legal High) will be directing, it will be written by Sunshine Days screenplay writer Yuichi Tokunaga, and Kyoko Yoshine (The Anthem of the Heart) will star as Tsukimi Kurashita.

Princess Jellyfish follows a group of young women, including Tsukimi, living at a fangirl-only dorm. One day, Tsukimi meets a beautiful woman and invites her back to the dorm, only to discover she’s a man. The series is known for its fun slice of life energy and lighthearted LGBTQIA+ themes. It was adapted into a live-action movie and anime TV series.

Given the manga ended earlier this year, we suspect this new live-action could adapt the entire series.
