Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the Cat on the Hero’s Lap manga series by Kosuke Iijima and Shiori. In this hilarious fantasy adventure tale, will the hero triumph against the evil Demon Lord, or face defeat… because he can’t fight with a cat on his lap.

The hero Ledo and his companions have a mission: defeat the Demon Lord once and for all. Aina is a formidable fighter, taking down foes with only her fists and feet; Grace the wizard harnesses powerful magic to blast away enemies in their path. Meanwhile, Ledo faces an unexpected challenge in their quest: a big, fluffy cat has taken a liking to him, following the party wherever they go… and jumping into Ledo’s lap whenever it’s free, even in the heat of battle. Everyone knows you can’t just dump a cat off your lap in good conscience. If Ledo pushes this sweet kitty away while it’s happily making biscuits, will he be any better than the monsters he’s trying to fight? A swords and sorcery story for fans of cats and comedy.

Cat on the Hero’s Lap Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in November 2023 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single large-trim editions.
