Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for The Great Snake’s Bride manga series by Fushiashikumo. In this critically acclaimed and sensual fairy tale, can a woman sacrificed to a snake god learn to love her non-human husband?
For 500 years, a giant snake god has lived in the ancient mountain. Miyo, an unlucky young woman from the nearby village, has been offered as a tribute: she is to be the snake’s bride. Miyo always feared that the enormous talking snake would devour her whole, but once she’s taken in by the god, he treats her like a wife rather than a meal. His flicking tongue vibrates through gentle words, his powerful slithering body wraps around hers in an embrace. This god is kinder than his monstrous form implies, and Miyo thinks she could learn to appreciate the non-human form his love takes. What does it truly mean to be the bride of a beast?
The Great Snake’s Bride Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in July 2023 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions.
