posted on by Karen Ressler
North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it has licensed Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and... yuri manga series. The first volume, Kase-san and Morning Glories, is slated for release on February 28, 2017. The volumes can be read in order or as stand-alone stories.
The volumes all follow a romance between "the clumsy, flower-adoring Yamada and the exuberant Kase-san, their school's track and field star." Seven Seas describes the story:
Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don't seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?
Takashima serialized the manga in Shinshokan's yuri manga anthology Hirari until the magazine ceased publication in 2014. The series is ongoing on Shinshokan's Web Wings online manga platform. Shinshokan published Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) in 2012, followed by Obentō to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Bento) in 2012 and Shortcake to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Shortcake) in 2015.
