Seven Seas Licenses Battle Rabbits
(LOS ANGELES, September 4, 2015) – Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce their acquisition of Battle Rabbits, the newest manga series by the creative team behind 07-Ghost, Amemiya Yuki and Ichihara Yukino.
Kokuryuu Kaguya was only a little boy when he witnessed his father murdered by demons. He spent years trying to convince people about what he witnessed, but was dismissed as a traumatized child with an over-active imagination. Now a teenager, Kaguya still remembers what happened.
One day, Kaguya is struck by a mysterious light and meets a young woman named Mao—a skillful warrior wearing bunny ears—who rescues him from a demons' attack, then demands to know what planet he's from! Kaguya finds himself inducted into a secret organization of other-worldly individuals whose goal is to defend Earth from monstrous invaders. Reborn as a Battle Rabbit, strange powers awaken within Kaguya which allow him to fight these creatures and seek vengeance for his father's death.
"It's impressive how the creative team Amemiya Yuki and Ichihara Yukino combine emotional story lines with strong action sequences, and we know there are a lot of fans of their previous work, 07-Ghost,” says Seven Seas publisher, Jason DeAngelis. “Battle Rabbits introduces readers to another well-constructed world that combines fantasy and sci-fi story elements to great effect.”
Seven Seas will release Battle Rabbits for the first time in print in North America as single volumes, each with a color insert. The first volume will be released on July 5, 2016 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
