Seven Seas Entertainment License Nirvana Manga & Perfect Blue Novels

Seven Seas Entertainment have announced that they have licensed the manga series Nirvana, by Jin and Sayuki (ZOWLS), as well as the novel Perfect Blue by Yoshikazu Takeuch for western publishing and distribution.

It’s worth noting that the Perfect Blue novel was the inspiration which led Satoshi Kon to adapt it into an anime film; a film which is currently available on Blu-ray and DVD within the UK via Anime Limited.

Nirvana: Yachiyo Hitotose has always strived to be helpful, sacrificing her time and energy to follow in her mother’s footsteps. While traveling overseas to become a relief volunteer, Yachiyo’s plane crashes–and she suddenly awakens in a world of magic and mysticism. In a realm where reincarnations and fate dictate the lives of those within it, Yachiyo is hailed as a goddess against the forces of evil…and a mysterious keepsake from her mother may be the key to saving everyone.

Perfect Blue: These psychological thrillers deal with the haunting price of fame. Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis is the novel upon which Satoshi Kon based his Perfect Blue animated film, focusing on pop idol Mima Kirigoe’s move into an acting career and the sinister forces around her–including a trail of shocking murders–that push her into her own fragmented reality. Seven Seas will also be releasing the additional Perfect Blue: Awaken from a Dream novel with a completely separate plot, for readers eager for more psychological drama from Yoshikazu Takeuchi.

As it stands Seven Seas Entertainment are planning to release the first Nirvana manga during August within America; while the Perfect Blue Novels will be released during December. No word on a UK release but i’m sure we will see it imported over look the majority of the books that Seven Seas Entertainment release.
