Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the Summer Ghost light novel and manga by Otsuichi, loundraw, and Yoshi Inomi—both based on the critically acclaimed animated short film about three high schoolers’ supernatural coming-of-age. The entire two-volume manga series will be released in English in one omnibus edition.

Three high school students are united by their shared desire to meet this ghost–and each of them is close to death. What happens when they come together one fateful summer night as the boundary between life and death grows thin?
