Cast & Credits
CHARACTERS: A bit over the top for my tastes, but I think it's on purpose. However, great acting and authentic character development! (Plus, I loved Kuranosuke's fashion <3)
SCENERY: The Amamizukan is such a nice place to live, I would move there in an instant! Also, the whole jellyfish theme: so aesthetic!
Would recommend to someone who: likes jellyfish ('cause they are like everywhere haha) and fashion / wants to watch something that breaks a few cliches / feels kinda otaku / wants to learn something about life and how to survive in a healthy way
