Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has licensed two manga by Asumiko Nakamura: Sora and Hara and O.B.. Both manga are related to Nakamura’s Classmates manga.
The story of Sora and Hara is described as:
In Sora and Hara, learn more about the teacher Hara Manabu, a gay man who feels somewhat adrift in the world. He spends his days teaching at an all-boys school, his nights out on the town. While at a gay bar, he meets a young man named Sorano and makes an instant connection. But things become complicated when he sees Sorano again–as a new student at school. Hara immediately shuts down the possibility of a relationship, although the situation is unearthing issues from Hara’s youth, when he himself had complicated sexual feelings in his teens… and the current emotional baggage that still lingers with his now-graduated student, Rihito. In this darkly comedic drama about love and aging, a seen-it-all teacher has more learning of his own to do.
The company will release the one-volume manga under the title Classmates Vol. 4: Sora and Hara digitally and in print in November 2021.
The story of O.B. is described as:
In O.B., Hikaru and Rihito may have graduated high school, but their life beyond is just beginning. Can these two boys keep their relationship strong while they grow into adults together? Meanwhile, many of their friends, including their former teacher Hara, are dealing with their own relationship drama. This collection of manga stories from the modern BL classic, Classmates, was originally released in two volumes in Japan, but will be published together in English as a single omnibus.
Seven Seas will release the two-volume manga in a one-volume omnibus digitally and in print in January 2022 under the title Classmates Vol. 5: O.B..
