Um....I can't really say why it made me think about it, but have you read The Wallflower? XD They're really nothing alike, but the main characters are somewhat similar....only not. XD

Kuragehime is similar, and it's possible I love it more than Kimi No Todoke (which I love a lot!)

The story revolves around Tsukimi. She's a jellyfish otaku and lives in a boarding house with four other room mates, all extreme otaku of their own types. They call themselves 'Amamizukan" which, if I remember right, basically translates into "Convent" for nuns. No men are allowed, and all five women are extremely shy around normal people and especially shy/afraid of men.

Enter Kuranosuke. He's the illegitimate child of a high ranking politician and also a cross-dresser. He helps out Tsukimi with obtaining a jellyfish from a pet store, and she, finding him extremely powerful and beautiful, invites him back to her place not knowing he's a man. Well, she finds out and flips.

Turns out Kuranosuke takes a great liking to her and her flatmates and wants to change their ways. It basically goes from their with a seriously adorable love story, very, very like Sawako's and Shota's. The biggest difference is it's not set in high school.

My summary is really weird, but it's a great series, and I think you should try it out. Here's where I watch it on anilinkz: http://www.anilinkz.com/category/kuragehime/

My biggest problem with the series is that there's not nearly enough episodes! Come on, Season 2!

^ Aiyaa, really? You're definitely not alone... there was a whole thread full of us raving about it, about 6 months ago. http://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?topic=14518.0;all
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

Kuragehime sounds interesting. Maybe I'll try it... the only problem is I'm terrified of Jellyfish.... but it really sounds like a fascinating series.

You won't be scared of these jellyfish. When they're drawn, they're a lot less scary, and Clara got the Japanese cute animal treatment for the biggest moments where she pops up.

Jellyfish as fancy dress. That's how to look at these in Kuragahime.
