Seven Seas Licenses the A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad’s an Alcoholic Manga

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad’s an Alcoholic manga by Mariko Kikuchi, a moving autobiographical manga about her father’s alcoholism that inspired a critically acclaimed live-action film.

Mariko Kikuchi tells the painful story of her father’s alcoholism, and her own journey through guilt and self-blame to understand her father’s illness. She rejects the common belief that family members can and should be forgiven for anything they do, no matter how much harm they cause. This powerful, self-contained autobiographical manga began as a web series that went viral, and went on to inspire a 2019 film in Japan. Now this groundbreaking work about the ripple effects of addiction will be released in English for the very first time.

Seven Seas will publish the A Life Turned Upside Down: My Dad’s an Alcoholic manga for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim edition. The book will be released in November 2021 for $14.99 USA / $18.99.
