Seven Seas Licenses Diary of a Female Lead: Shujinkou Nikki Manga Series

(May 22, 2024) – Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manga series Diary of a Female Lead: Shujinkou Nikki by Yuu Yoshinaga. This critically acclaimed meta shojo series is about taking charge of your own (love) life.

Tsujimura Aoi wouldn't consider herself a main character by any means. Meek and insecure, she's constantly alone, unlike her athletic older brother, Itsuki, or her mother, a famous shojo mangaka. Aoi doesn't need to be the heroine, though—all she wants is a true friend. But Itsuki disagrees, and when he brings home Aoi's effortlessly cool classmate Mizusawa Sena, the two concoct a plan to teach Aoi all about love, using shojo manga as their guide. Can this drab side character become an unparalleled female lead by falling for the perfect guy?

Diary of a Female Lead: Shujinkou Nikki Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in October 2024 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in single-volume editions. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.
