Seven Seas Licenses Magical Buffs: The Support Caster is Stronger Than He Realized! Manga Series

(May 22, 2024) – Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manga series Magical Buffs: The Support Caster is Stronger Than He Realized! by Haka Tokura, Shin Arakawa, and Eiri Shirai. In this action-packed fantasy manga based on a popular light novel, one support mage will prove he can hold his own on the front lines.

Wim Strauss is a “granting caster”—a support mage who can increase the strength of his allies through the power of his spells. It's a useful talent, but since it can't be used directly in battle, it gets zero respect from the other members of his party. As far as they're concerned, support magic is dead weight. It isn't long before they toss him out on his ear, leaving Wim to wonder if his career as an adventurer is over.

Lucky for Wim, he has one big chance: his childhood friend Heidemarie is able to get him an audition with her elite A-rank party, Nachtlibelle. The two of them know his magic is good for more than just menial backup, but now he'll have to prove it. It's time to show the world that support mages can do more than just stand on the back lines!

Magical Buffs: The Support Caster is Stronger Than He Realized! (Manga) Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in October 2024 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the series available in single-volume editions. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.
