Princess Jellyfish Episode #05 Anime Review

The lives of those in the Sisterhood continue to be amusing as they have such a slightly off kilter way of approaching things. When the meeting/presentation comes up for the redevelopment of the area, which means that they'll lose their building, they treat it as if they're going off to war and marching to face the enemy. Of course, everything there is very business like and professional, which means that it's just as bad as dealing with regular people since they can't handle it. Contact with the enemy never goes well and it hits an even bigger snag when Shu sees them come in and still can't make the connection as to who Tsukimi really is. His pursuit of the beautiful version of her has him unable to see the real her.

While we do see these situations in movies and TV shows all the time, I do wonder at it happening in real life and just how easy it is to pass it off. In a way, I expected a little better of Princess Jellyfish with it since it is playing in the real world, but it's rather easy to accept that Tsukimi looks so radically different as a NEET that Shu is unable to see who she really is since he's so blinded and smitten by the dolled up version that Kuranosuke created. With Tsukimi not knowing that he can't tell the difference, the way she acts around him is even cuter since she becomes so withdrawn even as her heart races intensely as she's come to really like him. That alone is a difficult thing for her to accept and her internal debates over it and analyzing how it feels is adorable. She's not as bad some other shows with it, taking it too far to be crippling, but she and the others all face their challenges in this way.
