I can understand why every other title was licensed, even if some of them don't appeal to me, but...

Who on earth was asking for Primitive Boyfriend?

I’m sure someone was, considering how it got licensed in the first place....

Anyway, I love the Bloom Into You manga (I haven’t finished the anime yet), so I’m excited for the light novels!

More yuri stuff from Akiko Morishima is a GOOD thing! Hopefully Hanjuku Joshi is up next in the future so let's buy Conditions of Paradise. Cool

That Bloom into You spinoff novel was inevitable. I figured Seven Seas will be involved in doing an ebook simulpub on Citrus+ considering the manga-ka tweeted about it getting a worldwide release. Is this the first time a yuri manga getting this treatment? I think it's a good indication Citrus as a property must be doing pretty dang good all over the place.

Hmm, the only one that looks sort of interesting to me is My Androgynous Boyfriend. I don't really need more isekai or boobs, tbh.

I know I’m no one to tell these companies how to do their business but the synopsis for GIGANT is missing at least an additional sentence. What’s given gives you no reason to want to check it out. Okay, so they guy that did something as stellar as INUYASHIKI is now making a manga about a teen obsessed with a JAV actress with big breasts? I looked it up and no, there seems to be more to it obviously but you’d never know. The rest should be given to give you an idea of what to expect.

Apparently, she finds a man in the street in his underwear who gives her a DVD and a wrist implant that allows her to blow herself up like Apache Chief?

Dang. When I heard that Seven Seas was going to be announcing 10 new licenses, I was hoping that Do Chokkyuu Kareshi x Kanojo might end up being one of them. They've licensed a few other manga from the same magazine and it seems like it would be a nice fit for their catalog.

Oh well. As it stands, a few of these titles have me a little curious, but none of them really stand out to me a things that I'd jump at the chance to pick up. I still have a ton of other releases by them that I NEED to buy.

It's funny how whenever Seven Seas does a batch of licensing announcements, there's almost always precisely one that I'm interested in. That one this time is Metamorphosis Veranda. Glad that their yuri, isekai, and other popular series do well enough that they pick up interesting titles like this.

Oh man, Conditions of Paradise is my favorite Morishima Akiko anthology, so I'm definitely picking that up when it comes out!

Also I wasn't that interested in the Bloom Into You novels, but seeing that it's written by Iruma (whose Adachi to Shimamura novels are Great), I might actually get it...

Metamorphosis Veranda seems right up my alley too.

I think they should have stuck with the term “gender less” boyfriend rather than “androgynous”..
