Seven Seas announced three new manga licenses this week, including cats, yuri and neo-noir. You had me at cats. All three will be released next year.
Yokai Cats by PANDANIA, a fun and full-color comic about mischievous supernatural cats
What if your pet cats were actually supernatural creatures known as yokai? With a neck that can stretch to steal food off the counter, or the ability to turn into a huge wall that blocks your way, these yokai cats are even more adorable and mischievous than typical felines! Get ready to be surprised and delighted by these “spirited” cats in a manga series the whole family can enjoy.
Volume 1 will be released in August 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN.
The Summer You Were There by Yuama.
In this sweet yuri love story, two high school girls–one a shy writer, the other a social butterfly–try to live out a romance novel!
Shizuku is a shy girl who hardly talks to other people. Instead, she loses herself in creative writing, crafting a novel that she never plans to show anyone. But when Kaori–Shizuku’s cute, popular classmate–gets her hands on Shizuku’s manuscript, everything changes. Kaori is a huge fan, and suggests that Shizuku can get inspiration for her writing if the two of them start dating! Can these very different young ladies create their own love story together?
Volume 1 will be released in September 2022 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
CANDY AND CIGARETTES by Tomonori Inoue, an action-packed, neo-noir revenge thriller from the creator of Coppelion!
When retired cop Hiraga Raizou gets a lucrative gig working for a shadowy government organization known as the SS Agency, he is in for a rude awakening. The first day on his new job, he comes across a grisly murder and a lone little girl who’s far from innocent. She’s Suzukaze Miharu, an 11-year-old master assassin–and his new partner! The arrangement is simple: she kills, he cleans up and hides any evidence. Sure, the pay is great, but how much blood is Raizou willing to get on his hands?
Volume 1 will be released in August 2022 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
