The North American manga publisher Viz Media confirmed with ANN that it will release Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara's 07-Ghost gothic fantasy manga starting this November. The second volume will follow in January.
The story revolves around Teito, an orphaned slave with magical powers who enrolls in the military academy of the Barsburg Empire. However, he discovers his father's killers are in his school and flees. Teito gets caught in the larger struggle between Verloren, the God of Death, and the “beings of light” sent by Heaven: the Seven Ghosts.
The manga has been running in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero Sum magazine in Japan, and Ichijinsha published 13th compiled book volume last December. Go! Comi published the beginning of the manga in North America in 2008. The manga inspired a television anime series in 2009.
