Seven Seas Has No Romantic Regrets With KINDRED SPIRITS ON THE ROOF Yuri Manga License
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce their license of Kindred Spirits on the Roof, the manga companion to the popular yuri visual novel.
Kindred Spirits on the Roof is a yuri manga omnibus based on the visual novel game of the same title. The story follows multiple schoolgirl romances—with some ghostly interference! Two friendly spirits inhabit the rooftop of an all-girls’ school and, inspired by their own feelings of unrequited love for each other, try to make more yuri couples among the living students. The Kindred Spirits on the Roof game has been localized into English by MangaGamer and is available for download on the popular digital game platform, Steam.
Mako and Shiori have been best friends since they were children, but when Mako suddenly confesses her love to Shiori, all Shiori can do is run away! One year later, Shiori sees Mako and decides she wants to rekindle their friendship. Can the two girls go back to their relationship the way it was before or are they ready for it to evolve into something else?
Meanwhile, fellow student Hase Chiharu loves seeing yuri romance play out. For that reason, she becomes enamored by two senior classmates, Natsuki and Rika, a power couple in the school’s Quiz Show Club. When Chiharu joins the club so she can be closer to them, she meets the adorable Tokino. Tokino can’t take her eyes off their beautiful upper classmates either, and as Chiharu and Tokino observe the couple together, their own sweet relationship begins!
"We're always on the look out for fun new yuri series and Kindred Spirits on the Roof's companion manga caught our eye pretty quickly," said Seven Seas production manager Lissa Pattillo. "MangaGamer did a great job localizing the game for English audiences, and we're eager to provide fans of the game, and yuri readers in general, a sweet revisit to this yuritopia!"
Seven Seas will present Kindred Spirits on the Roof for the first time in print in North America as a single collected omnibus complete with color pages. Kindred Spirits on the Roof will be released on January 31, 2017 for $18.99 US / $21.99 CAN.
