SEVEN SEAS ANNOUNCES NEW WEBMANGA--AOI HOUSE

(Los Angeles, January 24, 2005) – Seven Seas Entertainment announced today the launch of an exclusive webmanga series, Aoi House. Debuting at www.gomanga.com on January 24th, with updates coming every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Aoi House is a comedy series in the spirit of Love Hina, The Real World and Comic Party.

Written and created by Adam Arnold, co-creator of Animefringe: Online Anime Magazine, and illustrated by Jim Jimenez, a veteran comic artist and animator, Aoi House follows the trials and tribulations of two down-on-their-luck college boys who join an anime club dominated by crazed fangirls.

In addition to each new installment, Aoi House will feature blog-style rants by the author and a new forum section that will allow for direct reader interaction.

Jason DeAngelis, “With three new updates a week of Aoi House, as well as our other regular manga updates, we're hoping to give people a reason to come back to gomanga.com on a daily basis.”

Currently, Seven Seas plans to release Aoi House strictly as a free webmanga. However, Seven Seas may consider publishing the series if reader response is strong.
