Seven Seas Hops into the Fray with License of Battle Rabbits
Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce their acquisition of Battle Rabbits, the newest manga series by the creative team behind 07-Ghost, Amemiya Yuki and Ichihara Yukino.
Kokuryuu Kaguya was only a little boy when he witnessed his father murdered by demons. He spent years trying to convince people about what he witnessed, but was dismissed as a traumatized child with an over-active imagination. Now a teenager, Kaguya still remembers what happened.
One day, Kaguya is struck by a mysterious light and meets a young woman named Mao—a skillful warrior wearing bunny ears—who rescues him from a demons' attack, then demands to know what planet he’s from! Kaguya finds himself inducted into a secret organization of other-worldly individuals whose goal is to defend Earth from monstrous invaders. Reborn as a Battle Rabbit, strange powers awaken within Kaguya which allow him to fight these creatures and seek vengeance for his father’s death.
Seven Seas Entertainment reveals the first of several new summer licenses with their acquisition of I Was Abducted by an Elite All-Girls School as a Sample Commoner, written by Nanatsuki Takafumi and with art by Risumai.
Deep in the forest-covered mountains is an all-girls school, attended by children from only the richest and most prestigious of families. Here, the girls are raised to be perfect young ladies, cut off from the real world to preserve their innocence and ensure that they’re free from all distractions. This policy of isolation is a double-edged sword, however, for after graduation, students of the academy often struggle to adapt to a world that’s totally different from their cloistered school life.
To combat this inevitable culture shock, an average teenage boy, Kagurazaka Kimito, is kidnapped by the school to provide its students with knowledge of the outside world. Forced to enroll against his wishes, Kimito must now attend classes in a place where his very manhood relies on keeping the girls happy. Can one regular guy possibly survive in a fearsome, all-female student body?
Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce their upcoming omnibus release of L. Frank Baum's classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz & The Marvelous Land of Oz.
Combining the classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and its sequel, The Marvelous Land of Oz, into one lavishly-illustrated edition, readers will be able to re-experience the original story that spawned numerous popular plays, television shows, and films. The work will feature lovely manga-inspired illustrations by artist Kriss Sison, who previously illustrated an omnibus edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.
Follow young Dorothy Gale as she is whisked away to the strange and magical world of Oz. There she meets a host of endearing and colorful characters, such as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. Dorothy and her new-found friends will embark on a grand adventure to seek out the mysterious Wizard of Oz who can grant any wish, and thwart the Wicked Witch of the West. Then readers will meet young Tip, a boy from Oz who has been victimized by the wicked witch known as Mombi. Can Tip defeat the witch, against impossible odds, and discover his true destiny?
