Seven Seas Licenses Lord Marksman and Vanadis Manga

posted on by Karen Ressler
Original fantasy light novels also inspired 2014 TV anime

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Monday that it has licensed Nobuhiko Yanai's manga adaptation of Tsukasa Kawaguchi's Lord Marksman and Vanadis (Madan no Ō to Vanadis) light novel series. The company will publish the manga in single volumes, and plans to release the first on September 13, 2016.

Seven Seas describes the story:

The country of Zhcted is ruled by seven women known as the Vanadis, a group of warriors who are given powerful weapons and dominion over the country's seven territories. Taking advantage of its neighboring nations' civil unrest, Zhcted goes to war against the country of Brune. In a battle that decimates Brune's army, the brave, young Brune nobleman Tigrevurmund Vorn meets the beautiful Eleonara Viltaria—one of the Vanadis.

Impressed with his skill as an archer, Elen allows Tigre to live in exchange for his servitude. But the battle is far from over, and extends further than either of them could have imagined. Tigre and his new mistress become caught in the middle of a plot that threatens not only their homelands, but the entire world.

Yanai has been drawing the manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine since 2011, and Kadokawa shipped the eighth compiled volume in September. Kawaguchi launched the light novel series in 2011 with art by Yoshi☆wo, and Media Factory published the 13th volume this month.

FUNimation Entertainment streamed the 13-episode anime adaptation, which premiered in October 2014, and plans to release the series on DVD and Blu-ray with an English dub in February 2016.
