Story: Kumi Tamaru

Riku Can’t Be a Goddess is a collection of four emotionally gripping stories about high schoolers’ acceptance of themselves and each other. The first volume will be released for the first time in the English language in July 2024 as part of Seven Seas’ Airship light novel imprint. The book will be available in a single large-trim edition. An ebook edition will also be available early on digital platforms.

Synopsis

High school student Ichika has a secret. She’s letting Riku, her childhood friend and secret crush, explore his interest in cross-dressing by acting as his personal dress-up doll–that is, until an unexpected kiss upends this happy arrangement, sending Ichika fleeing in a panic. But they’re not the only ones finding themselves and putting their hearts through the wringer in the process. These four coming-of-age tales follow teenagers as they find–and confront–their true selves.

My Sister Took My Fiance and Now I’m Being Courted by a Beastly Prince is a shoujo fantasy romance manga that will be released for the first time in the English language. Volume one will be in April 2024, with the series available in single large-trim editions. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.

Synopsis

Cordelia, daughter of a Countess, can’t seem to get married–mostly because her little sister Priscilla keeps stealing the hearts of her suitors. Ready to resign herself to a spinster fate, Cordelia is surprised when a handsome man suddenly wants to court her: and he’s a prince, no less! Prince Leonhardt, who possesses the power of a legendary lion, is a heavily admired man but has his own quirks, such as pursuing Cordelia because he was drawn to her…scent. How cat-like is this man, really?! A fun (and slightly furry) fantasy romance!

The full-color No Love Zone Boys’ Love comic is a mature-rated rom-com about a friendly office worker and his handsome but tyrannical boss!

The first volume will be released in English print in April 2024, with the series available in single large-trim editions of approximately 300 pages each as part of the Seven Seas Webtoons label. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.

Synopsis

It’s been about a year since Lee Eun-gyeom started working at his office job. He’s outgoing and gets along well with his co-workers, but his success with romantic relationships is less than stellar…especially since he tends to fall hard and fast based on looks alone. History seems poised to repeat itself with his handsome new boss, Han Jihyuk: the man is exactly Lee Eun-gyeom’s type, but his personality is a total turn-off as he works Lee Eun-gyeom to the bone. The more aggravated Lee Eun-gyeom feels, the more he can’t get Han Jihyuk off his mind. Could this heated attraction be mutual?
