Yesterday, Seven Seas Entertainment licensed three new manga series for its weekly Wonderful Wednesdays initiative. The announced titles are My New Life as a Cat, Cinderella Closet, and Soloist in a Cage. The first volumes of these manga series will debut at various points next year.
My New Life as a Cat
Nao Kazushiro is a normal high school student—until he gets in a traffic accident and winds up in the body of a cat! At first, it’s all fun and games as he gets used to his new form, but then the novelty wears off and the hunger sets in. Luckily, he’s picked up by Chika, a girl his age, who gives him food and a home off the streets. She’s paw-fully sweet and pretty, but meanwhile he’s still in a furry feline body! Will Nao (now Nyao) ever get his human form back, or will fur end up flying instead of sparks?
My New Life as a Cat Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in North America in April 2023 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions.
Haruka is a “plain jane” who left the countryside to start her college life in Tokyo. She’s secretly in love with Kurotaki, a coworker at her part-time job, but she lacks the self-confidence to confess her feelings to him. Then she meets Hikaru, a glamorous but sharp-tongued fashionista who begrudgingly agrees to play “fairy godmother” for Haruka and help her learn to love and value herself in the process. However, there’s more to Hikaru than meets the eye!

Soloist in a Cage
Chloe and her baby brother Locke were born in a prison the size of a city: a walled-off collection of ramshackle buildings full of dangerous criminals who live bleak and isolated lives. Their parents are gone, leaving Chloe to care for her brother. When a trio of soldiers manage to break out of the prison, Chloe goes with them but loses Locke during the escape. After years of training, Chloe returns to the prison city with one goal: to find her now 11-year-old brother and get him out of that hellhole, no matter what it takes.
