Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that the company has licensed Yomi Hirasaka and Itachi’s Haganai: I Have No Friends and Hajime Asano and Niito’s Mayo Chiki! manga from Media Factory.
The Haganai manga launched in Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine in March 2011 and adapts Hirasaka and Buriki’s Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai comedy light novel series. The story follows Kodaka — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and unpleasant, fierce gaze scares people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozorai. The two decide to form “The Neighbor’s Club,” a club for misfits with hardly any friends.
Niito has been drawing a manga adaptation of Asano’s Mayo Chiki! light novel series in Monthly Comic Alive magazine since 2010. In the school romantic comedy, Subaru Konoe is a beautiful boy who serves the principal’s cruel and domineering daughter, Kanade Suzutsuki. However, Kinjirō Sakamachi, a “normal” boy with an abnormal fear of women, accidentally discovers Subaru’s secret — Subaru is really a girl.
The first two volumes of Haganai will ship in November 2012 and February 2013, and the first two volumes of Mayo Chiki! will ship in December 2012 and March 2013.
