Seven Seas Entertainment has announced, through its Airship light novel imprint, the license acquisition of the light novel series The Case Files of Jeweler Richard by Nanako Tsujimura and Utako Yukihiro. This highly acclaimed mystery tale about a young man teaming up with a handsome jewelry appraiser inspired a popular anime–and a manga adaptation (also from Seven Seas).

When Seigi Nakata rescued a handsome young jewelry appraiser from a group of drunken assailants, he got more than he bargained for. The appraiser is Richard Ranasinghe de Vulpian, a brilliant and mysterious British jewelry expert. Seigi hires him to appraise a family heirloom… and that is just the beginning. Together, they unlock the secret messages hidden in the hearts of precious stones–and those who possess them.

The Case Files of Jeweler Richard light novel Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in September 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, available in print and on digital platforms in single large-trim editions as part of Seven Seas’ Airship imprint.
