Seven Seas had more licenses to announce over the last day or so, starting with two more manga additions leading into today’s big announcement of Kenkou Cross’s infamous Monster Girl Encyclopedia.
The uncensored hardcover guide to monster girls features in-depth profiles of one hundred monster girls and the “wicked world” they inhabit. The Monster Girl Encyclopedia will launch in North America, shrink-wrapped and aimed at mature audiences, on September 20, 2016 for for $24.99 USA / $28.99 CAN.
Told from the perspective of a wandering scholar of monsters, these vibrantly illustrated pages include one hundred full-color illustrations of seductively-lethal monster girls, including everything from centaurs to succubi, from mermaids to slimes, from goblins to werecats, and much, much more. In addition, the book is filled with fascinating bios and lore, and scores of tantalizing black and white illustrations.
As for the manga announcements that preceded it, the latest licenses are Ichiya Sazanami’s Magia the Ninth and Suzuki Kenya’s full-color Please Tell Me! Galko-chan. The first volumes of both will be available on November 22, 2016.
Magia the Night:
High school student Takeru Sumura has a dark secret: his parents were murdered by demons. Consumed by vengeance, Takeru seeks out the famed demon hunter, Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven is a “magia,” a wizard who wields the power of music to battle demons. Taken under Beethoven’s wing, Takeru joins the ranks of other renowned magia: Bach, Mozart, Shubert, Liszt and Tchaikovsky. This unique team of demon hunters will use their music-based magic to combat the world’s demons. Now all Takeru needs to do is figure out how to convince Beethoven to upgrade him from his personal cleaning boy to a full-fledged apprentice!
Please Tell Me! Galko-chan:
Written and illustrated by Suzuki Kenya, with an anime adaptation scheduled to air on Japanese television in January 2016,Please Tell Me! Galko-chan gives a hilariously candid inside look into the life of Japanese school girls like you’ve never seen them before.
Galko-chan always speaks her mind, which may not be the wisest decision in all cases, but it’s never short of entertaining! Meet the exuberant and unbelievably busty high schooler, Galko, as she traverses the ups and downs of adolescence with spirit and verve, alongside her best friends–the anti-social loner, Otako, and the unpredictably honest, Ojyo.
