Seven Seas Entertainment announces the license acquisition of Shut-In Elf by Akihiko Higuchi, a lighthearted manga series about a quirky elf from another world who’s fascinated by video games–and the local girls who have to deal with her.
Koganei Koito is a teenager who works as an attendant to the Takamimi Shrine. Rumors have it that a deity dwells within the shrine, but the actual resident is an immortal elf who found herself stuck on Earth some four hundred years ago. What’s more, the elf is a total shut-in who won’t go outside… and has developed a taste for video games. Now the attendants at the shrine have to cater to the elf’s love of the most modern gizmos–from handheld games to virtual reality headsets–in this charming fantasy comedy.
Seven Seas will publish the manga series Shut-In Elf for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in March 2021 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
