Hot on the heels of the Lord Marksman and Vanadis announcement is another pair of acquisitions from North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment. First up is Reiji Suzumaru’s Love in Hell: Death Life manga, a companion series to Love in Hell.
Though it’s related to Love in Hell, the story in Death Life features a new hapless hero and a whole new cast of characters alongside some returning characters, so it can be enjoyed by existing fans and new fans alike. The first volume is scheduled to arrive on July 19, 2016.
Utsunomiya Sousuke is dead. But his new life is about to begin…in Hell! Upon awakening in the Afterlife, Sousuke meets his painfully sexy devil guide Sanagi, who may be short of stature, but packs an all-powerful punch. Like Rintaro before him, can the hopelessly irreverent Sousuke repent from his sins, or is he fated to be forever tortured and teased by a gorgeous demonic temptress?
Seven Seas also announced Rose Ishikawa’s vampire comedy My Pathetic Vampire Life, with the first volume set for October 4, 2016.
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?
