Seven Seas Entertainment revealed a new set of manga and light novel license acquisitions featuring titles including Classroom of the Elite: Year 2, World End Solte, and I Think I Turned My Childhood Friend Into a Girl.
World End Solte
By: Satoshi Mizukami
The war is finally over, but the land has been ravaged. Magical pollution runs rampant, distorting time and space. Solte, an orphan whose mother and father were killed trying to eliminate this blight, decides to follow in her parents’ footsteps. But rather than cleansing the pollution, she wants to venture into it, like the Salvagers who reclaim treasure from its depths. Solte wants to push farther and see if she can find the other side–and perhaps even the answers she seeks.
Seven Seas will publish the manga series World End Solte for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in April 2022 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
I Think I Turned My Childhood Friend Into a Girl
By: Azusa Banjo
It’s a familiar story: a popular high school student gives their plain friend a makeover and transforms their life. But this time, the path to a new life isn’t quite so straight and narrow. Kenshirou Midou has loved cosmetics all his life, keeping his obsession secret from almost everyone except for his childhood friend Hiura Mihate. One day, Kenshirou gets permission to practice applying makeup on Hiura, and the results are earth-shattering: Hiura’s appearance transforms from a plain, undersized boy to a pretty, petite girl, and Kenshirou discovers just how freeing it is to apply his passion! Yet he’s not the only one who finds the process liberating.
Hiura likes the makeup, and the subsequent “dress-up” in feminine clothes, and decides to start wearing the girls’ uniform to school. Kenshirou doesn’t understand if he’s unlocked something in Hiura, or if he’s simply seeing a new side to his childhood buddy that he never noticed before. What are these feelings bubbling between them now–is this attraction truly new?
Seven Seas will publish the manga series I Think I Turned My Childhood Friend Into a Girl for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in May 2022 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
Classroom of the Elite: Year 2
By: Syougo Kinugasa and Tomoseshunsaku
Students of the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School are given remarkable freedom–if they can win, barter, or save enough points to work their way up the ranks! Ayanokouji Kiyotaka started at the bottom in the scorned Class D, where he met Horikita Suzune, who was determined to rise up the ladder to Class A. Who can beat the system in a school where cutthroat competition is the name of the game? The second year of this intense school drama begins now!
Seven Seas will publish the series Classroom of the Elite: Year 2 (Light Novel) for the first time in North America in print and (early) on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in print in May 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN.
