Princess Jellyfish Episode #08 Anime Review

Princess Jellyfish has worked a rather standard storyline at the core with urban renewal and the 'dastardly plans' by the developer to force people out so they can get the property and build a massive hotel that will rake in the big yen for all involved. Except, of course, the people living there right now. Kuranosuke is intent on making sure this doesn't happen as he has a real affection for the women there and wants to help them. Unfortunately, he's not exactly the best at coming up with ways to raise money to buy the complex from the current owner in an effort to stave off the sale itself.

While the plan is to sell of things at the flea market that they have with old plates and cups that are just taking up space, the real attraction is the Clara themed rain warder doll that Tsukimi has made. Of course, there's a whole host of issues in the idea that they can raise any amount of serious money by selling things at a flea market but nobody seems to really think about that at the first. In fact, Kuranosuke's so keen on selling more of the Clara dolls that he'll even pay the women at the apartment 50,000 yen to bring him the fabric and sewing machine so they can make more on demand. Throwing money in that direction instead of putting it towards the actual building purchase is headshake inducing. Then again, 50,000 isn't a whole lot to begin with when talking about purchasing a building.
