Seven Seas Entertainment Licenses My Pathetic Vampire Life Manga

Seven Seas Entertainment Goes Back to Class with License of MY PATHETIC VAMPIRE LIFE Manga

(LOS ANGELES, December 1, 2015) – Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce their acquisition of Rose Ishikawa's vampire comedy, My Pathetic Vampire Life–‒an all-new supernatural comedy manga series about a vampire stuck in high school for all eternity!

Koide was turned into a vampire at the age of sixteen—one hundred and thirty-three years ago. Now, poor Koide is trapped in an eternal loop of the same old homework, the same boring lectures and meaningless tests, and an ever-unquenchable thirst for blood. Koide has repeated his uneventful sophomore year of high school one hundred and thirty-three times, and now, in his one hundred and thirty fourth year, he doesn't expect things to change—and is frankly too bored to care.

But his classmates this year seem a little different than before. They're thrilled to have a vampire in their midst, and are eager to do whatever they can to help. Will “134” be Koide's lucky number or is that just wishful thinking?

“Some might say that the time of vampires has come and gone, but in this case the protagonist of the story itself couldn't agree more!” said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “Stories have joked about teenage-born vampires being trapped going to school forever, and this series follows up on that idea to hilarious and sympathetic effect.”

Seven Seas will publish My Pathetic Vampire Life for the first time in print in North America as single volumes. Each book will contain at least two full-color pages. Volume one of My Pathetic Vampire Life will be released on October 4, 2016 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
