Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of Parallel Paradise by Lynn Okamoto, a Mature-rated manga for the Ghost Ship imprint about a man summoned from Earth to a fantasy world populated only by women.
Tada Youta, a seemingly normal young man with a background in martial arts, has his life upended when a terrifying creature drags him into another world. He’s shocked to find himself in a land with castles and dragons and colored moons in the sky, where the only humans who roam are women. Not only is Youta the first man in this world for centuries, but his touch can activate a powerful desire within the women around him. Guided into this strange new land by a beautiful paladin, Youta is about to embark on his ultimate fantasy adventure. Creator Lynn Okamoto, a veteran of the industry, is also known for the manga and anime series Brynhildr in the Darkness and Elfen Lied.
