Seven Seas Entertainment Licenses the COLORLESS Manga

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the COLORLESS science fiction manga series by Kent, a stylish noir-punk thriller set in a world stripped of its color and humanity. This visually striking manga series is presented in two-tone printing that contrasts a gritty, monochromatic world with sudden electric splashes of neon color.

A cosmic disaster changed the Earth forever, stripping away every last drop of color from the world. Mankind also changed: the familiar human face is almost forgotten in a world now populated wholly by mutants. Against the backdrop of a moody urban landscape, a lone wolf investigator named Avidia relies on both his wits and extraordinary gun to hunt down the world’s last hidden scraps of color. He soon crosses paths with a very special girl–one who just might hold the key to bringing back what the world has lost.

Seven Seas will publish the COLORLESS manga series for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in May 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN.

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for the I Think I Turned My Childhood Friend Into a Girl manga series by Azusa Banjo: an LGBT+ romantic comedy in which nobody is quite what they seem, and everyone learns to be who they truly are.

It’s a familiar story: a popular high school student gives their plain friend a makeover and transforms their life. But this time, the path to a new life isn’t quite so straight and narrow. Kenshirou Midou has loved cosmetics all his life, keeping his obsession secret from almost everyone except for his childhood friend Hiura Mihate. One day, Kenshirou gets permission to practice applying makeup on Hiura, and the results are earth-shattering: Hiura’s appearance transforms from a plain, undersized boy to a pretty, petite girl, and Kenshirou discovers just how freeing it is to apply his passion. Yet he’s not the only one who finds the process liberating. Hiura likes the makeup, and the subsequent “dress-up” in feminine clothes, and decides to start wearing the girls’ uniform to school. Kenshirou doesn’t understand if he’s unlocked something in Hiura, or if he’s simply seeing a new side to his childhood buddy that he never noticed before. What are these feelings bubbling between them now–is this attraction truly new?
