The wraparound jacket band on the ninth volume of Okayado's Monster Musume manga announced on Saturday that the series now has more than 2.3 million copies in print in Japan.
Seven Seas Entertainment releases the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Monsters: they're real, and they want to date us!
Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood - not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they're trying.
When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life.
Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?!
OKAYADO launched the manga in Tokuma Shoten's Monthly Comic Ryū magazine in 2012.
The 11th volume of the manga will bundle an original anime DVD (OAD) that will adapt the 17th chapter of the manga from the fourth volume.
