Seven Seas Entertainment has launched an all-new imprint dedicated to audiobooks called Seven Seas Siren. The Siren imprint will launch in June 2023 with English-language audiobooks of three popular Seven Seas light novel series: Classroom of the Elite, Reborn as a Space Mercenary, and The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent.
More series to receive audiobook adaptations will be announced at a later date. The first three digital audiobooks are now available for pre-order at online audiobook retailers, such as Audible and BookWalker. A website for the Seven Seas Siren imprint has also been launched.
The Classroom of the Elite audiobook will be narrated by theater performer Eddy Lee, who has done vocal performance in various anime voice acting and starred as Alexander Hamilton in the hit Broadway show, Hamilton. The first audiobook volume will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023.
The synopsis is described by Seven Seas Entertainment as:
Students of the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School are given remarkable freedom—if they can win, barter, or save enough points to work their way up the ranks! Ayanokouji Kiyotaka has landed at the bottom in the scorned Class D, where he meets Horikita Suzune, who’s determined to rise up the ladder to Class A. Can they beat the system in a school where cutthroat competition is the name of the game?
Reborn as a Space Mercenary: I Woke Up Piloting the Strongest Starship! will be narrated by Fred Berman — an award-winning audiobook narrator known for his role as Timon in Broadway’s The Lion King. The first audiobook volume will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023.
Seven Seas describes the story of the light novels as:
When Satou Takahiro is swept away from his ordinary life into the world of his favorite video game, a universe of space battles, interstellar colonies, and danger in the vastness of outer space awaits. Soon, he’s living as “Hiro” the mercenary, with a tricked-out spaceship and a babe on each arm! There are space pirates to fight, girls to rescue, and trouble to get into (and hopefully out of). Hiro is going to live his new life to the fullest!
The audiobook for The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent will be narrated by anime voice acting star Veronica Taylor, best known as Ash Ketchum in Pokemon and Sailor Pluto in Sailor Moon. The audiobook’s first volume will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023.
Seven Seas describes the synopsis of the light novels as:
Could workaholic office lady Sei be a legendary Saint? Not according to the crown prince of another world who summoned her and quickly declared a different girl was the real Saint! That suits Sei just fine—she would much rather spend her days quietly helping people with her unbelievably powerful magic. But how long can Sei live her ideal life of leisure before her true nature is revealed?
