Oct 6th 2010
(LOS ANGELES, October 07, 2010) – With the October release of Strawberry Panic!: The Complete Manga Collection, Seven Seas Entertainment is proud to announce its perfect companion edition: Strawberry Panic!: The Complete Novel Collection.

Strawberry Panic!: The Complete Novel Collection will clock in at over 600-pages at the affordable price of $14.99. This three-in-one omnibus will contain the first two previously published novels along with the third and final novel which has never been published in North America. The three novels expand upon the storyline far beyond what is told in the manga, and contain new illustrations by Strawberry Panic! manga artist Takuminamuchi.

Strawberry Panic! has a very dedicated and vocal fan base," said Seven Seas Publisher Jason DeAngelis. "Fans have passionately been asking us to publish the third novel for a long time. We listened."

The Strawberry Panic! franchise has spanned three novels, two manga, and a PlayStation 2 video game. In July 2009, AnimeWorks released the anime boxed set on DVD in North America.

Strawberry Panic!: The Complete Novel Collection will hit stores in June 2011.

This omnibus collection contains all three novels from the hit yuri series Strawberry Panic! at one low price. Included in this edition is the third and final Strawberry Panic! novel, which has never before been published in North America.

For new transfer student Aoi Nagisa, St. Miator Girls' Academy offers her the chance at a fresh start and a way to redefine herself. But these noble intentions go out the window when she catches her first glimpse of honor student Hanazono Shizuma, whose porcelain white skin and goddess-like beauty leave Nagisa speechless.

It's puppy love at first sight, but naive Nagisa is unaware that Shizuma is a serial heartbreaker who has set her sights on Nagisa herself. Will Nagisa end up as another notch on Shizuma's belt, or does fate have other plans in store for the new couple?
