Seven Seas Enters a New Realm With THE GIRL FROM THE OTHER SIDE: SIÚIL, A RÚN Manga License
Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún, an all-new manga series that pulls readers into a magical and enchanting tale about a young girl and her demonic guardian, featuring beautiful artwork by Japanese manga creator, Nagabe.
In a world split between the Inside and the Outside, those living in both realms are told never to cross over to the other side, lest they be cursed. A young girl named Shiva lives in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” Although the two are forbidden to touch, they seem to share a bond that transcends their disparate appearances. But when Shiva leaves Teacher’s care to seek out her grandmother, the secret behind her mysterious living arrangement comes to light.
"The Girl From the Other Side is simply too beautiful for us to pass up," said Seven Seas production manager Lissa Pattillo. "Nagabe has crafted a haunting but heart-warming story about a young girl and her mysterious guardian. There's such great suspense with its ethereal tone. The series is currently published in the same magazine as The Ancient Magus' Bride and we think our readers will really enjoy The Girl From the Other Side alongside it."
Seven Seas will present The Girl From the Other Side for the first time in print in North America as single volumes. Each book will come with a textured matte finish on the cover and at least one color insert. The Girl From the Other Side Vol. 1 will be released on January 10, 2017 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
