Exclusive: Seven Seas Licenses Tomo-chan Is a Girl! Comedy Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on this week's ANNCast on Friday that it has licensed Fumita Yanagida's Tomo-chan is a Girl! (Tomo-chan wa Onna no Ko!) manga, with the first volume slated for release on September 11.
Seven Seas describes the manga:
Boyish high school girl Aizawa Tomo finally manages to tell her childhood friend Jun that she's got a crush on him. Unfortunately, her confession goes right over his head—he didn't even realize she was a girl until junior high, and even now, Jun still thinks of her as a bro! How can Tomo-chan possibly convince him otherwise and win Jun's heart?
Yanagida launched the manga as a four-panel manga on Seikaisha's "Twi4" (Twitter 4-koma) Twitter account, beginning in April 2015, and it continues in the company's Saizensen website. The manga won Da Vinci and streaming service Niconico's second Tsugi ni Kuru Web Manga Awards in 2015. Kodansha publishes the manga's print volumes, and shipped the manga's fifth compiled book volume last August, and will ship the sixth volume on February 9.
