Seven Seas describes the synopsis as: 

In a fantasy world inspired by ancient China, thirteen clans rule the land, and the Rat Clan is the weakest. Rueiin, the princess of the Rat Clan, is summoned to the land of the dominating Dragon Clan along with the princesses of the other tribes. The Dragon King seeks a bride, and they are all candidates! Instead of vying for the Dragon King’s favor, though, Rueiin takes the chance to lose herself in the palace’s enormous library—a place she can read to her heart’s content, since she’s driven by an insatiable curiosity. It’s there that she’s “found” by the Dragon King himself, who immediately kisses her and claims she’s the one for him?! A fantastical love story begins!


Another new series from Seven Seas Entertainment is Otsuji’s My Stepmother and Stepsisters Aren’t Wicked. This comedic take on the classic Cinderella tale was first serialized in pixiv’s Comic POOL website on November 20, 2020. Three tankoubon volumes have been released as of August 19, 2022. 

The first volume will be released for the first time in English in May 2023. The series will be released as single large-trim edition books, available on both print and digital platforms.

The manga series is described by Seven Seas as: 

Miya is the illegitimate child of a prominent family. When her mother dies and her father’s estate agrees to take her in, she’s convinced she knows what awaits her in her new home: a life of servitude and misery at the hands of her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Yet when she finally meets the women she expects to treat her like dirt, they actually end up being…sweet?! A hilarious and heartfelt comedy that’s sure to put a smile on your face!


The last new manga acquisition is the self-contained manga Shibanban: Super Cute Doggies by Yasuteru Ogoshi. It is a full-color book for the popular Shiba Inu characters, as featured in LINE stickers and stationery items. The manga follows a group of canines on some hilarious adventures. 

The manga will be released for the first time in North America in May 2023. It will be available on both print and digital platforms as single large-trim editions.

Seven Seas describes Shibanban: Super Cute Doggies as:

Meet Aka, Kuro, Cha, Shiro, the Roly-Poly Pups, and the rest of this colorful cast of adorable Shiba Inu dogs! Whether they’re venturing out into stormy weather in a raincoat, lazing at the beach, napping in a cozy dog bed, or eagerly eyeing dinner someone left out on the table, their fun (and sometimes mischievous) antics are sure to delight.
