Seven Seas Combats Evil with Cutie Honey A Go Go! Manga License
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of Hideaki Anno and Shinpei Itou’s Cutie Honey a Go Go! manga, the stand-alone manga omnibus featuring none other than Cutie Honey—one of the most globally well-known and beloved anime characters from famed creator, Go Nagai.
Tokyo is under seige by the terrorist organization known as Panther Claw, and the beautiful superheroine android known as Cutie Honey appears on the scene to take them on—but fails! For her own protection, Cutie Honey must join forces with government agent Natsuko Aki, and pose as student and teacher at St. Chapel Academy. But there is nowhere to hide from Panther Claw and its leader’s evil machinations!
“Who hasn’t heard of Cutie Honey? She’s one of the most iconic ‘magical girls’ in anime fandom,” says Seven Seas Editor-in-Chief Adam Arnold. “I’ve got a manga bucket list and this book was on it, and we’re all excited to be able to publish this complete Cutie Honey story.”
Seven Seas will present Cutie Honey a Go Go! for the first time in English in North America. The complete series will be printed in a single 386-page omnibus edition, to be released on September 26, 2017 for $15.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.

Seven Seas Has Hell to Pay with Go Nagai and Rui Takatou’s Devilman G Horror Manga Series
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of Go Nagai and Rui Takatou’s Devilman G manga series, a modern retelling of the horror manga epic that pulls elements from the franchise’s rich forty year history.
When demons begin taking over the bodies of humans, only the strongest survive. When a practicing young witch named Miki Makimura asks her friend Akira Fudo for help with a ritual, the spell is interrupted and Akira is left on the brink of death. His body is overtaken by a powerful being named Amon. Now torn between his humanity and the demon within him, Akira uses his abilities to fight in the war between demons and humans for the future of the world itself!
“There’s not an otaku out there that hasn’t heard the name ‘Devilman,’ but so few actually know what Devilman is even about,” says Editor-in-Chief Adam Arnold. “I think it’s long-past time we fixed that, and with Devilman G, anime and manga fans finally have the perfect entry point into Go Nagai’s iconic franchise that’s inspired countless anime, novels, and movies, and even crossed over into countless others.”
Seven Seas will present the Devilman G manga series for the first time in print in North America as single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on October 17, 2017 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
