In celebration of their 12 year anniversary, Seven Seas Entertainment has been announcing new manga licenses every day over the course of the week!
Of the titles that have been announced so far, I’m most looking forward to “My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness” by Kabi Nagata. This is an autobiographical yuri comic that recounts the authors personal experiences with mental illness, loneliness and sexual exploration.
I’m also interested in “Beasts of Abigaile” by Aoki Spica, a fun looking shojo romance that was loosely inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. Speaking of Little Red Riding Hood, this was apparently a theme with these license, as they also announced: “Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf” by Hachijou Shin. This is a Josei manga that flips the script on the classic fairy tale and has Red Riding Hood picking on the cry baby wolf. You don’t see that many Josei titles published in North America, so I think I’ll check this one out too.
Here’s the full list of titles that have been announced so far:
- Otome Mania!!
- Concrete Revolutio: The Complete Saga
- Beasts of Abigaile
- Generation Witch
- Monster Girl Encyclopedia Volume II
- Don’t Meddle With My Daughter
- Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf
- Akashic Records of the Bastard Magical Instructor
- Tales of Zestiria
- My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness
