posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Kabi Nagata's My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness (Sabishisugite Lez Fūzoku Ikimashita Repo) manga and Shiramine's Tales of Zestiria manga.
The company also announced that it is publishing a limited edition of Kore Yamazaki's The Ancient Magus' Bride manga volume 6, which will include a bonus chapter for the series. The bonus chapter will feature "Chise being comforted by Elias during a thunder storm," and Seven Seas is bundling the chapter as a separate booklet in all first-print editions of the volume. The volume ships in North America on January 3 for US$12.99.
Seven Seas describes Nagata's autobiographical My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness manga:
A hugely popular comic on pixiv, My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness was released in print this past June by Japanese publisher East Press, offering readers an honest and heartfelt look at one young woman's exploration of her sexuality, mental well-being, and growing up in our modern age.
East Press published the one-volume manga in print in Japan on June 17. Seven Seas is releasing the manga in its original two-tone color printing on June 3, 2017 for US$13.99.
Seven Seas describes Tales of Zestiria, which is based on Bandai Namco Entertainment's role-playing game of the same name:
Sorey is a human boy who has lived all his life in The Divine Forest, side-by-side with heavenly, but secretive creatures known as Seraphim, which includes his best friend Mikleo. While investigating the old ruins near their home for Seraphim lore, they meet a young woman named Alisha, a knight seeking answers to the calamities drawing their world to ruin. Upon learning that the Seraphim may have a connection to the destruction, Sorey decides it's time to leave The Divine Forest. With Mikleo and Alisha at his side, Sorey will seek out the truth behind the catastrophes—and discover his own hidden powers in the process.
Seven Seas will release the manga's first volume on June 13, 2017 for US$12.99. The manga launched in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine last year and it ended in August. Ichijinsha published the manga's fourth and final compiled volume in Japan on September 24.
The original role-playing game also inspired the Tales of Zestiria the X television anime series, which premiered in July. The anime is getting a second season next year.
