As part of its Wonderful Wednesdays initiative, Seven Seas Entertainment licensed three new manga series for next year! This time around, the titles are A Story of Seven Lives, The Great Snake’s Bride, and Last Game. A Story of Seven Lives will be released as an omnibus while the other titles will be single volume releases.
A Story of Seven Lives
On the mean streets of Tokyo, countless stray cats scrounge and struggle to survive. Nanao is one of them: he used to be a house cat, but after tragedy struck he had to make it on his own, relying only on fellow stray cat Machi for help. When some people start feeding the strays in their neighborhood, Nanao cautiously starts to bond with them. But the humans–a brother and sister who run a bathhouse–have issues and wounds of their own. Can Nanao help them heal, and perhaps find a new home in the process? A heart-tugging tale of family and survival!
A Story of Seven Lives will be released for the first time in North America in May 2023 for $24.99 USA / $32.99 CAN, with the book available in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim edition.
The Great Snake’s Bride
For 500 years, a giant snake god has lived in the ancient mountain. Miyo, an unlucky young woman from the nearby village, has been offered as a tribute: she is to be the snake’s bride. Miyo always feared that the enormous talking snake would devour her whole, but once she’s taken in by the god, he treats her like a wife rather than a meal. His flicking tongue vibrates through gentle words, his powerful slithering body wraps around hers in an embrace. This god is kinder than his monstrous form implies, and Miyo thinks she could learn to appreciate the non-human form his love takes. What does it truly mean to be the bride of a beast…?
The Great Snake’s Bride Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in North America in July 2023 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions.
In elementary school, the rich and spoiled Yanagi Naoto was known for excelling in both studies and sports. But then he suffered the first setback of his life when Kujou Mikoto, a girl from a poor family, transferred to his school and performed better than Naoto at every turn. Reeling from this unforgivable blow to his pride, Naoto decided that he had to make Mikoto lose at something…by making her lose her heart to him, which he could then break! Now that they’re both in college, will Naoto finally be able to win Mikoto’s affections–or will he lose this final game with her?
Last Game Vol. 1 (original black and white edition) will be released for the first time in print in North America in May 2023 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the series available in single large-trim editions. An ebook edition will also be available on digital platforms.
