Q:Regarding 'Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer' - since you're using new covers for the omnibus editions, will the original single volume covers be included as pages in the omnibus volumes? If so, will they be in colour?
As a matter of fact, I can confirm that we will be including the original covers inside our omnibus editions, as seen below with the original cover for the first tankoubon. Not all of them will be in color, though. —CC
Q:Do you guys plan on getting more titles from Comic Gene or Comic Zero Sum?
It’s possible. We’ve already licensed a few from each, and those have done moderately well for us, so of course we keep our eyes open for other series that are similar. —CC
Q:Are you guys going to add more titles with bromance in them in the near future?
I have to actually think about that one. Are we going to add any more in the near future? Nothing really comes to mind, though Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer has some particularly tender and bodacious bromance. We’ve got the first omnibus out next month.
We’re open to suggestions. —CC
Q:Are you guys planning to pick up the "Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun" manga? After watching the anime I honestly fell in love with it and want to see what else they get themselves into, and unfortunately I've yet to see any news on translating it.
Nope. It’s published by Square Enix, so we wouldn’t have access to Nozaki-kun. Sorry. —CC
Q:With an Arpeggio Of Blue Steel novel in the works, is there a chance you would bring that over?
Possibly. Though it depends on the demand of the series/franchise, and how continuing sales for our releases trend. —CC
Q:Has there been any interest in picking up the Seirei Tsukai manga?
Q:Whoever answers all the asks you guys get is really good at it.
Why thank you!
Honestly, it’s a lot of fun. We love hearing from fans; while we don’t get around to every single question, I assure you that we read them all.
So thanks again, and keep on sending those questions and comments, loyal Seven Seas and manga fans! —CC
Q:Do the Kokoro Connect manga closely follow the plot of the original Ln? Id like to get the authentic ending to the series with the manga so that's why im asking (Ill be picking it up regardless However) thanks!
As far as I’m aware, the manga adaptation faithfully adapts the material from the light-novels. Of course, as with almost all adaptations, there are slight differences and nuances that aren’t in the light-novel, be it due to artistic variance (of the manga artist), or for editorial reasons.
You’re not likely to see a 1:1 adaptation of anything, and this transcends just light-novels/manga/anime. That said, it doesn’t necessarily mean the adaptation is going to be bad—not by any means. For what it’s worth, I feel Kokoro Connect's manga adaptation is a charming and faithful adaptation of the source material, and reflects the allures of what brought in many fans for the anime adaptation, as well. —CC
Q:Is Seishokuki too adult? Or were you serious about nothing being too lewd?
Don’t believe we’ve had this title brought to our attention before, so I’ll reserve judgement until we’ve had a chance to review the material. —CC
Q:Am I right in assuming that none of the other covers in the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer series will have any male characters on the cover?
I just looked over the covers earlier today for the rest of our omnibus editions. In fact, our next omnibus (vol.3-4) will feature a male character. Spoiler alert: our covers don’t use any of the existing 10 tankoubon covers. So there’s that to tease/tantalize all of you Biscuit Hammer fans. ;) —CC
