The Okayado goodness doesn’t end!
Also shown off earlier on Fujimi Shobo’s Dragon Age Twitter account, the cover of 12 BEAST’s second tankoubon! We’re totally okay with our new minotaur overlords.
We’ll be releasing volume 1 of this fantastical series next April, so look forward to it! —CC
And here it is! Revealed last night, the cover for Okayado’s MONSTER MUSUME vol.6 is absolutely stunning! Rachnee <3 —CC
There’s also now an official (JP) Monster Musume Twitter account, which will be updating fans on everything MonMusu related, so be sure to keep an eye on it (as we certainly will be). —CC
Q:Is the reason that you did not license the A Certain Magical Index light novel because Yen Press was already on to it, or because you guys definitely don't license light novels?
A 20+ volume light-novel series wasn’t really a feasible business decision for us. Light-novels, in general, are a hard sell and largely haven’t performed well Stateside (there are exceptions). A 20+ volume series of anything would an incredibly rare order for us to take on, not to mention the extra costs of light novel translation/production.
While we aren’t actively engaged in licensing light-novels, we do keep our eyes out for promising properties. —CC
Q:Hey Seven Seas! Do you have a release date for Railgun vol.10 yet? And I can't wait for your release of Biscuit Hammer! I absolutely love your manga, keep it up. :)
Volume 10 is scheduled for release in January 2015.
Excellent! Make sure to spread the word and get everyone else hyped up for our Biscuit Hammer omnibus releases! ;)
And thank you, we most certainly will! —CC
The nightmare continues as the latest tankoubon for MAGICAL GIRL APOCALYPSE (魔法少女・オブ・ジ・エンド) flexes its muscle in Japan.
The sixth volume is due out early next month, and we’ll be debuting the first volume Stateside in October! We should have our cover ready to show off soon, so look forward to this gruesome, twisted and amazing manga! —CC
Q:Does the Haganai manga include everything the light novels have?
I wouldn’t say “everything” since the manga is an adaptation of the light novels (the source material), and there will be details, little nuances that are left on the cutting floor.
That said, the manga has done an incredibly great job at adapting said source material, and it is very faithful. So while the manga may not cover “everything”, it still conveys the story, the characters, the development of relationships between everyone, in a very faithful way. —CC

Q:So i know you guys arent the ones who work on it but have you heard if theyre putting the dragonar academy anime in english? Also how close is the the anime to the manga?
I don’t recall if funimation got the home video rights for Dragonar Academy or not (they’re the ones that streamed it), but chances are if they do get the rights, they’ll more than likely dub it.
The anime covered the first four volumes, I believe, so we’re getting pretty close to that point (as we just published volume 3). To my knowledge, it was a faithful adaptation with not much deviation. —CC
