Princess Jellyfish 01 released

Wiki Article
Next Ep>

Alt title - There's a Naked Man in the Nunnery

Not bad. It's so fun to see Wataru from Kiva back. Hmmm, I wonder if Toei is releasing Kiva now because Wataru is doing this drama and Otoya is back in Build.

It's interesting to see how the drama is different from the manga. I'm not sure if I like Kuranosuke being the older brother. One of the reasons that Shuu is so appealing is that he's such an old virgin, compared to his wild child younger brother. I hope they make good use of this change.

I'm keeping a list of changes on our wiki:
http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Kurage_Him ... _the_Manga

I'm liking the series so far. It's really neat to see a live enactment of these characters that I've only known from the comics. Seto Koji in particular seems to be making Kuranosuke more empathetic, at least to me. The Ama~s are the Ama~s, they're like lifted straight out of the comics, they're great. It's so funny seeing Uchida Rio in a role outside of Drive.

I decided to go with Ama~s versus the manga translations Amars, because I feel like there's no r sound. It's just a long a vowel, and if you look at the Japanese, they pretty much write Ama~s with the tilde anyway.

That being said, one thing that does shock me is how kidnappy Kuranosuke is. It's like, "Damn, they really downplayed that aspect in the manga!"

One cool thing that I noticed was that they combined the very beginning of the manga with the scene at the aquarium which becomes the end of episode one. It's a very smart combination and with some good acting, the aquarium scene definitely surpasses the manga version because of these reasons.

I really liked that. I've been wanting to see some toku actors in other roles (Only other thing I'd really seen was the 2 Hentai Kamen movies) so this was a nice thing to get. And I know it's a long shot, but any chance of that new live action Mob Psycho 100? The one with Momoninger in it?

This is a fun eps.
The switch of making kuranosuke as the elder brother maybe to
Spoiler
make the reason the father seperate him and bring him into the family without much opposition from him wife. Cause eldest to succeed the family and stuff. Makes more sense imho
Overall the eps rushed a bit thru the manga, but just enough to make sense.
Here's expecting the next eps to be better.
Everything is AWESOME!

Not familiar with the manga, movie, nor anime, but I enjoyed this episode going in blind.

Awesome, if I've done nothing else, at least I made a fan of someone!

Looking forward to this series as well.
Watched the movie once, it was quite good.
Feels like kuranosuke is less girly here, but maybe that's how he is supposed to be in the manga?

Hmmm, I don't know how it is in the movie, but in the manga he's never girly unless he's playing around. He just likes the clothes and the style.

I'd not heard of it either. From what I can tell, it's about a guy with telekinetic powers. The new live action one has Momoninger and Zangetsu in it. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaY5xQinep4

Figured it was a long shot but figured I'd ask anyway!

Stupid question time, but from the photo on the front page... what are they eating? To me, it looks like a chocolate covered pastry, which means it probably isn't a chocolate pastry.
