Seven Seas Launches New Ghost Ship Imprint to Deliver Mature Manga Through Diamond Book Distributors, Including New Titles YUUNA AND THE HAUNTED HOT SPRINGS and WORLD’S END HAREM
(LOS ANGELES, October 11, 2017) – Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the launch of an all-new imprint through Diamond Book Distributors: Ghost Ship, a line of specialty titles for mature fans. The Ghost Ship imprint will include previously announced manga and two new license acquisitions, both in print and digital formats: Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs by Tadahiro Miura, and World’s End Harem by LINK and Kotaro Shono!
“We’ve seen strong sales results with our mature manga titles and are excited to now add a specialized imprint to our diverse catalog,” says Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “I’m confident that Diamond is the Perfect Partner to distribute Ghost Ship titles and to promote these hotly anticipated books to the right audience.”
Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs
Homeless and haunted by ghosts, high schooler Kogarashi thinks his luck has finally turned when he finds Yuragi-sou–a cheap boarding house that was formerly a hot springs inn, now full of super sexy, scantily clad female tenants. If Kogarashi can use his spirit abilities to banish the ghost that haunts the inn, he can even live there rent-free! But when the ghost, a beautiful teenage girl named Yuuna, appears before him, Kogarashi takes pity on her and is suddenly not so sure about the exorcism. Will he help save Yuuna from becoming an evil spirit? And what supernatural secrets do the other boarders hold?
World’s End Harem
The Man-Killer Virus: a lethal disease that has eradicated 99.9% of the world’s male population. Mizuhara Reito has been in cryogenic sleep for the past five years, leaving behind Tachibana Erisa, the girl of his dreams. When Reito awakens from the deep freeze, he emerges into a sex-crazed new world where he himself is the planet’s most precious resource. Reito and four other male studs are given lives of luxury and one simple mission: repopulate the world by impregnating as many women as possible! All Reito wants, however, is to find his beloved Erisa who went missing three years ago. Can Reito resist temptation and find his one true love?
“We’ve been listening to what our fans want, and these two series definitely ranked high in our reader surveys,” says Seven Seas editor-in-chief Adam Arnold. “Both of these sexy harem titles feature the fantastic art our audience expects, and they’re perfect for our new Ghost Ship line for older readers.”
Seven Seas will launch its new Ghost Ship imprint for older readers with three titles already announced: To Love Ru Vol. 1-2 Omnibus (December 5, 2017), To Love Ru: Darkness Vol. 1 (December 5, 2017), and Yokai Girls Vol. 1 (January 2, 2018).
Also under Ghost Ship, the Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs manga series will appear for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms as single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in print on March 6, 2018 for $12.99 USA / $15.99 CAN.
