Seven Seas Announces Kashimashi & 3 Other Japanese Licenses

Jul 31st 2006
(LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2006) – Seven Seas Entertainment is proud to formally announce the acquisition of 4 new Japanese licenses—manga series Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~, Kodomo no Jikan, Neconoclasm, and the novel series Shinigami no Ballad. First announced during Seven Seas' panels at Anime Expo and the San Diego Comic-Con, each of these new titles brings something unique to Seven Seas' ever-expanding line-up of manga and novels.



Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~, about a boy who becomes a girl caught in an all-girl love triangle, and Shinigami no Ballad, about a young female grim reaper who reaps souls but also helps those in need, are both hit anime series that have already gained considerable buzz in North America for their high production quality. Kodomo no Jikan is a fun-filled comedy romp about a group of school girls who do nothing but try to put their innocent male teacher into compromising situations. And Neconoclasm is a can't-miss collection of gag strips featuring hilarious cat girls drawn in the super-cute spirit of Di Gi Charat.
