Seven Seas Sates Its Appetite with License of RE:MONSTER Manga
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the acquisition of the fantasy manga series, Re:Monster—written by Kanekiru Kogitsune, and illustrated by Kobayakawa Haruyoshi. Based on a popular light novel series, Re:Monster is the newest tale of reincarnation and survival in another world, but with a spin: the protagonist begins life anew as a voracious goblin.
Tomokui Kanata has suffered an early death, but his adventures are far from over. He is reborn into a fantastical world of swords and magic-- as a lowly goblin! Not content to let this stop him, the now renamed “Rou” uses his new physical abilities and his old memories to plow ahead in a world where consuming other creatures allows him to acquire their strengths and powers.
"Re:Monster falls into the increasingly popular category of a hero reborn into an RPG-like world," said Seven Seas' publisher Jason DeAngelis. "Much like Mushoku Tensei, Overlord, or Sword Art Online, a young man is transported into a fantasy world to begin a new life, but in Re:Monster, he's reborn as a goblin—a very, very hungry goblin. With strong artwork and a unique story, it’s sure to be a winner."
Seven Seas will publish Re:Monster for the first time in print in North America as single volumes. The first volume will be released on November 8, 2016 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
