Rest in Peace, Anastasia
The staff of Seven Seas extends its heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Anastasia Moreno, who recently passed away. Anastasia was, among many things, a talented Japanese translator who we were fortunate enough to work with over the years. Her titles with us included Kisses Sighs and Cherry Blossom Pink, Girl Friends, Girls und Panzer, Zero's Familiar and Strawberry Panic. Anastasia was a pleasure to collaborate with and her work, both on numerous manga series and her own Marine Corps Yumi web comic, will continue to entertain and enrich readers for years to come.
Rest in peace, Anastasia, and thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce their acquisition of the long-awaited manga series, Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door.
Inspired by the wildly popular anime, this all-new manga series brings to light one of the most important events within the franchise—the formation of the Afterlife Battlefront. Released on home video in North America by Sentai Filmworks, the Angel Beats! anime has gone on to become a perennial seller, and a beloved series by many fans.
"Angel Beats!: Heaven's Door is a title we've been eager to publish," said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “The anime was a major hit, and this manga series builds upon the Angel Beats universe by adding an in-depth backstory, exciting new plot elements, and deeper characterizations. Comedy, action, cute girls, and even some interesting thoughts on the afterlife – we think Heaven's Door will be a great title for both new and old fans of the work."
