Jellyfish Can’t Swim in the Night Staff Comments

Director: Ryohei Takeshita

“That guy who has a lot of friends, that cute girl, that rich guy… Every time I check SNS every day, I see other people’s sparkles and I’m just depressed compared to myself “now”. I want to find someone who likes me!” This original project was started with the wish.

It is a story that has been worked out little by little with the main characters of the anime to answer the question, “What is your favorite thing?” I go to my desk again today, hoping that it will reach the hearts of many people. “Jellyfish can’t swim at night”.”

Series composition/screenplay: Yuuki Yaku

“In today’s world where approval is more important than money, it seems that the number of “likes” is more valuable than the balance of savings.

Broadcasters who show off a large amount of cash on TikTok and talk about how wealthy they are are full of inflammatory comments, while comedians who keep losing gambling and turn their debts into laughter are full of favorable comments and praise.

When asked which one they admire, few people would answer the former, and neither do I.

The girls in this anime struggle between who they want to be and the eyes of those around them – “like” and “approve”, and work hard at their creative activities.

No, perhaps there are very few people who truly know who they want to be. Please enjoy this modern drama that I want to send to everyone who knows that reality is somewhat suffocating, but that there is no such thing as freedom and happiness on SNS.”
