The Art of Jellyfish Eyes (ジ・アート・オブ・めめめのくらげ,   Ji Āto Obu Mememe no Kurage) is a 2022 informational book detailing the development of Takashi Murakami's Jellyfish Eyes.


The Art of Jellyfish Eyes, published by Kaikai Kiki and released on August 26, 2022, has 478 pages containing over thousands of characters, hundreds of images, the revisions to the script of the film, along with unused scenarios, staff interviews, and more.

The Art of Jellyfish Eyes comes inside a brown box with a "The Art of Jellyfish Eyes" sticker. Inside the box is a white container that contains the book, alongside the script of the film, a booklet containing the script for the film (which comes in a cardboard container), and a postscript. With all of this inside the box, it weighs kilograms ( lbs).

The book, reading from left to right, comes with a dust jacket which depicts Kurage-bo's face with the text "A Takashi Murakami Film The Art of Jellyfish Eyes めめめのくらげ" on the top, while the actual book's hardcover binding shows the tsunami from Masashi's flashback about his father. The inner cover of the book on the front shows the F.R.I.E.N.D.s. appearing from the children's Devices, and on the back shows the F.R.I.E.N.D.s. flying out of the school.




An official making-of book that excavates, organizes, and edits production notes, staff interviews, and a huge amount of unorganized materials for Takashi Murakami's first feature-length directorial work, Jellyfish Eyes (released in 2013). Inspired by the Great East Japan Earthquake, the stark behind-the-scenes scenes of juvenile-style yokai and monster movies are engraved. An interview with the book editing staff that took 6 years to complete, a script with Mr. Murakami's memo, and a copy of the storyboard collection are also included as an appendix. A large book of 478 pages.
