posted on by Karen Ressler
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Yōhei Yasumura's The Dungeon of the Black Company (Meikyū Black Company) manga. The first volume is slated for print and digital release on May 22, 2018.
Seven Seas describes the story:
Kinji, who lacks any kind of work ethic, is a layabout in his modern life. One day, he finds himself transported to another world–but not in a grand fantasy of a hero welcomed with open arms. He's immediately shoved into a terrible job! Now enslaved by an evil mining company in a fantasy world, Kinji's about to really learn the meaning of hard work!
Yasumura launched the manga on Mag Garden's Mag Comi website in December 2016. Mag Garden published the first compiled volume on May 10.
Yasumura also provided the art for a manga adaptation of Tōki Yanagimi's AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon" light novel series. The manga ran from December 2014 to December 2015. Seven Seas will release the manga in a single omnibus edition in November.
