Seven Seas Licenses Plus-Sized Elf Manga

posted on by Karen Ressler
Series about fast food-loving elf trying to lose weight launched last December

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Synecdoche's Plus-Sized Elf (Elf-san wa Yaserarenai.) manga. The first volume is slated for release on October 9.

The company has been revealing new licenses every day this week. Plus-Sized Elf is the first of three license announcements for Friday.

Seven Seas describes the story:

Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he's saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?

Synecdoche launched the ongoing manga on Wani Books' Comic Gum website on December 21, 2016, and Wani Books published the first compiled volume on June 26.
