Seven Seas Revives a Classic with Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch – Gold Edition Novel

Seven Seas Entertainment is proud to announce the license acquisition of Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch–one of the most beloved and iconic Japanese fantasy novels.

This collectible, deluxe release will contain the complete Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch novel, published in English for the first time in a large trim hardcover, gold embossed edition. Ryo Mizuno’s original fantasy epic will be accompanied by illustrations by Yutaka Izubuchi, known for his work on Mobile Suit Gundam and Escaflowne.

Parn, a reckless but passionate swordsman embarks on a quest to discover the source of a great evil overwhelming the country of Lodoss. Joining him are Deedlit, a young elf wielding powerful magic; Ghim, the tough-as-stones dwarf; Etoh, a fledgling priest; Slayn, the group’s sorcerer; and Woodchuck, their indispensable thief. Together, this iconic group will join forces to discover the truth behind a world torn apart by ancient deities and wield the power needed to defeat the Grey Witch!

Record of Lodoss War is a timeless classic. You’d be hard-pressed to find an adult anime or manga fan who hasn’t had some experience with it, whether it be the anime, manga, or even the Dreamcast game,” says Seven Seas Editor-In-Chief Adam Arnold. “Being the inspiration for decades of fantasy stories after it, we’re thrilled to be releasing this stunning edition of the original Grey Witch novel for readers of all generations to enjoy.”

Seven Seas will present the Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch – Gold Edition on October 31, 2017 for $24.99 US / $28.99 CAN.
