Seven Seas Licenses Kimi ni Nare, Our Wonderful Days, How to Train Your Devil Manga, Reincarnated as a Sword Light Novels

posted on by Karen Ressler
Manga by Orange's Ichigo Takano debuts in September

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it has licensed Ichigo Takano's Become You: Kimi ni Nare, Kei Hamuro's Our Wonderful Days (Tsurezure Biyori), and Tonchi Kataoka's How to Train Your Devil (Maoh no Mama ni Narun da yo!) manga, as well as Yuu Tanaka's Reincarnated as a Sword (Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita) light novels.

The first volume of Become You: Kimi ni Nare is slated for September 10.

Seven Seas describes the story:

Ashie Taiyou is a high school musician with dreams of stardom, but when his bandmates quit on him, it feels like his dreams are slipping away. In an act of desperation, Taiyou strong-arms his sullen classmate Hikari into forming a band with him. Can the two boys turn their dreams into reality?

Takano (orange, Dreamin' Sun) launched the manga in Futabasha's Monthly Action in April 2018. Futabasha published the first volume on October 15.

The manga was inspired by the band Kobukuro's song "Kimi ni Nare," which debuted on a single CD in the same month as the manga. Kobukuro previously performed the ending theme song for the Orange anime.

The first volume of the yuri manga Our Wonderful Days is slated for print and digital release on November 12.

Seven Seas describes the story:

On the first day of high school, Koharu is struck speechless at the sight of the beautiful new transfer student, Mafuyu. It turns out that Mafuyu and Koharu have a deep connection, one going all the way back to their childhood. As the two friends reconnect, their feelings start to grow into love. This sweet love story that first gained popularity on pixiv is now a series!

Hamuro launched the manga in Ichijinsha's Comic Yurihime magazine in October 2017. Ichijinsha published the first volume on April 18 and will publish the second volume on February 18.

The first volume of How to Train Your Devil is slated for print and digital release on October 8.

Seven Seas describes the story:

In a magical world where demons threaten humankind, a young woman with a magic sword rises up to be their champion! There's just one problem: the reigning demon lord is a baby, and she can't exactly slay a baby. Even if this domineering demon baby has crass tastes and evil DNA, she believes he can be turned to the side of good with the right influence. Unfortunately, she's forced to test the theory when a contract binds her to the baby demon lord as his surrogate parent until he performs enough good deeds to prove his worth. What kind of role is that for a mighty hero? Oh, mama!

The manga launched on Mag Garden's Mag Comi website in December 2017. Mag Garden published the second compiled volume on December 10.

The first volume of Reincarnated as a Sword is slated for print and digital release on August 6.

Seven Seas describes the story:

When a 30-year-old salaryman and games enthusiast is suddenly killed in a car accident, he finds himself reborn into a fantasy world…but in the form of a sword! Now he's in search of a beautiful woman to wield him, and a cat girl named Fran might be the exact adventuring partner he needs.

Tanaka launched the novels on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in October 2015 and Gentosha began publishing the series with illustrations by LLO in April 2017. The fourth volume shipped in September 2018.

Tomoo Maruyama launched a manga adaptation on Gentosha's Denshi Birz in December 2016.
