Ohime is a cute little starfish kamikaze girl who lives in a dome under the sea. But she’s not a happy echinoderm. A toxic plague of yellow algae is slowly turning everyone into deformed fish monsters. And a mad scientist named Dr. Ichii wants to control all the mutants for his own selfish agenda.

This isn’t the most bizarre book you’ll ever read. Yes, there’s some cruelty and weird fish sex scattered about. But mostly Starfish Girl is what you’d get if Hayao Miyazaki, Walt Disney, and Theodor Geisel drank too much kelpie ale and woke up in Whoville. In other words, it’s like a lost weekend in Bikini Bottom with “Submission” by the Sex Pistols on auto-repeat.
