Seven Seas Licenses Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea Manga (Updated)
posted on by Karen Ressler
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Monday that it has licensed Deep-Sea Prisoner's Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea (Oōnabara to Wadanohara) manga, based on the indie game of the same name.
Seven Seas began translating the manga into English when the manga began digital serialization on Gene Pixiv in August 2015, and has already translated the full series. The prologue and the first chapter are still available online in English. The company will publish the series in print in one omnibus volume and digitally in single volumes on July 4.
Seven Seas describes the story:
The young witch Wadanohara has just returned from a journey across the oceans, searching for a clue to mysteriously lost memories. But now that she has come home, Wadanohara must begin a new quest to ensure the safety of the ocean kingdom she hails from, along with her familiars Memoca, Dolphi and Fukami. When a mysterious figure from her past appears and demands that she leave her ocean home forever, will it be enough to stop Wadanohara from upholding a family legacy to save her world from an invading force?
Kadokawa shipped the second compiled volume of the manga on November 26. While Deep-Sea Prisoner gives the original game a "15 and up" rating for graphic content in some of the game's endings, the manga follows a path from the original game that Seven Seas labels as an "all-ages adventure."
Update: Seven Seas has translated the series in its entirety, though only the prologue and the first chapter are still available. The manga follows a path from the original game.
