Seven Seas July survey now available!


  • Member

    Seven Seas runs a monthly survey that includes license pickup suggestions for up to 3 titles. You can always find the survey at their main site in the top right, on top of the "On Sale This Month" list:

    http://www.sevenseasentertainment.com/

    Here are the manga titles I nominated. Seven Seas accepts LN nominations now as well.

    • Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai - Not a typical Seven Seas title, but one I really want licensed :v the two smartest and most popular kids at school, a genius but poor boy and a rich, sheltered girl, are so arrogant that they believe the other is love with them. They spend most of their time together coming up with various petty plots and schemes to entrap the other into confessing. Whoever confesses first, loses!
    • Darwin's Game - There is a secret game where you can exchange points for tons of real life cash. Unfortunately, the primary way to earn points is to kill or defeat other players in duels using supernatural abilities that are granted when the game is joined. The main character is tricked into joining the game but happens to survive and win his first duels. As he learns how to use his power and meets other players in the game, he decides to try to end the game.
    • Hatsukoi Zombie - After being hit in the head by a baseball and wishing he could fall in love, Kurume Tarou starts seeing "ghosts" of girls floating around every guy, including himself! He coins these ghosts "first-love zombies" since they are the idealized versions of each guy's first love, and discovers the zombie will disappear if that first love is fulfilled. Hoping to rid himself of this curse, Tarou seeks to fulfill his own first love. His crush coincidentally moves back to town and transfers to his school, only for him to find out... that "she" was actually a "he" who used to wear girl's clothes when little!

    Since Seven Seas did get TLR, maybe I should have nominated Yuuragi-sou no Yuuna-san. It's hard to break off from the "VIZ/Kodansha off-limits" mentality though :o

    What manga do you want to get licensed?! For LNs, there is an active topic already.

    I'm thinking of nominating Hajimete no Gal this month. I need This Art Club Has a Problem as well. I hate when anime ends with the romantic stuff unresolved.

    I would have nominated City , but that got announced by I think the Nichijou western pub recently. One Week Friends is coming too iirc.


    I know it's not the focus of the topic, but here's the list of LNs I'm pulling from (I need somewhere to keep these; a topic on the poll seems like a good place):

    Gamers!
    Classroom of the Elite
    Knights and Magic
    Restaurant to Another World
    DanganronpaZero
    Maoyuu
    Shin Sekai No Yori
    Shiki



  • @myskaros For me, LNs take priority, that's why I didn't request any manga (even though a manga has a higher chance of getting picked up by sevenseas)

    But I'd love Nanbaka to get licensed, every page is colored, how cool is that!? If I lived alone I'd definitely ask for "Why are you here sensei?" Buuttt I don't live alone and it'd be a bit embarrassing reading it πŸ˜“

    On a different note, does Sevenseas accept novel novel requests? I recently watched an anime called "Un-Go" which I fell in love with, apparently it's adapted from a novel novel.

    I kinda love Sevenseas at the moment, after all, they licensed the most action packed and plot twisted manga there has ever been, New Game! (note the sarcasm, but I love it 10/10 would waifu them all) . Am I going of topic?


  • Translators

    @imilyaz if I recall I was the official translator for un-go. Great show, but the books it's sort of loosesly based on are the classic mystery books of edogawa ranpo.
    I'm pretty sure most of his works have had English releases by now.



  • @sam-pinansky oh I didn't know about the translations, I should sharpen my info gathering skills.
    But that's cool af, you're the official translator. But now that I remember, you did mention that you subbed a few shows.

    I better look up those novels now, thanks for the info btw

    Edit: I can't seem to find it. All I got from Wikipedia is that the anime is adapted from "Ango Sakaguchi's novel Meiji Kaika Ango Torimono-chō" no hints of any translations of what I could find. Any help?

    The book appears to be in public domain, so at least you can access the Japanese version.

    Edit: You can read it in XHTML and let Google translate it (hey, better than nothing if you have no JP text language comp).

    Edit 2:

    18 years, but when you get drunk, Izumiyama Toranosuke Tachibana has a bad habit of cutting down the odds and wanting to lick the maid's hoppeta

    Thanks Google.

    @myskaros Surprising to find someone else also read Hatsukoi Zombie. It's really an enjoyable series.



  • @terrence that's the same website I found. But I couldn't find any translations (don't seem to be any) and I wasn't that thrilled on reading a machine-based translation.


  • Premium Member

    Hmmm... Ended up choosing "Denki-gai no Honya-san", "3-Gatsu no Lion" and "This Art Club Has a Problem".



  • Out of loyalty to J-Club (and also not realizing they take light novel suggestions) I only wrote in manga. I actually forget what the second one I wrote was, but I did put in Engaged to the Unidentified. That was a cute series.

    I hope it's more the bolded. πŸ˜…

    Remember that Seven Seas publishes J-Novel's releases physically. You never know, they could reach out to JNC for the translation of some stuff that gets requested.

    Or maybe I'm an awful guy for not having loyalty to any one company and requesting stuff everywhere. At least it heightens the chance of it getting noticed. 😣

    My 3 requests for July:

    • In Another World With My Smartphone (Manga) [2 Volumes]

    • Rokudou-kun no Onna-tachi [5 Volumes] (Weekly manga from the same magazine that My Monster Secret was serialized in.)

    • Yumekui Merry/ Dream Eater Merry [19 Volumes]



  • @terrence It is. The first part is just me sucking up
