Seven Seas Licenses Spriggan Manga Series (Deluxe Editions)

(LOS ANGELES, February 25, 2022) – Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of the manga SPRIGGAN by Hiroshi Takashige and Ryōji Minagawa in a series of deluxe omnibuses. This classic action-adventure manga of super spies and ancient alien relics that inspired the 1998 anime film is soon to be a Netflix Original anime series!

In the waning years of the Cold War era, national governments and paramilitary forces are in a race to uncover the relics of an ancient alien civilization that once ruled the Earth. The alien technology holds seemingly miraculous powers, but in the wrong hands, this power could spell disaster. Only the ARCAM Corporation's elite special operatives, the SPRIGGAN, have what it takes to stand up against an international rogue's gallery of power-hungry cyborgs and gunmen who covet ultimate power. Brash and fearless Ominae Yu, a teenage SPRIGGAN equipped with ARCAM's strongest power armor, will do whatever it takes to keep the past's forbidden legacy buried away!

This classic manga first released in the late 1980s--which inspired a beloved anime film in 1998, and an upcoming Netflix anime series in 2022--is finally being released in its entirety in North America in this beautiful English-language release. Each deluxe omnibus is 600+ pages long and contains a color illustration gallery.

SPRIGGAN: Deluxe Edition 1 will be released in August 2022 for $29.99 USA / $39.99 CAN, available in print and on digital platforms. The entire series will be released in four large-trim omnibus editions of 600+ pages each.
