Seven Seas Entertainment Announces ‘Ghost Ship’ for Mature Readers and New Licenses

American based Light novel and Manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment have recently announced that they will publish ‘mature’ manga and light novel titles through their new imprint service called Ghost Ship.

This new ‘Ghost Ship’ publication, which will act as parent of Seven Seas Entertainment and parent company Diamond Book Distributors, will allow the book publisher to release more ‘mature’ content. From our understanding of this announcement; Ghost Ship will act as publisher for content with may seem unsuitable under the current ‘teen’ rated Seven Seas Entertainment and some older titles will be rebranded under the Ghost Ship brand; such as rereleases of previously released titles such as To-Love Ru.

In addition to this new form of releasing books Seven Seas Entertainment have announced that they will be releasing Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs by Tadahiro Miura, and World’s End Harem by LINK and Kotaro Shono under the Ghost Ship brand.

Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs: Homeless and haunted by ghosts, high schooler Kogarashi thinks his luck has finally turned when he finds Yuragi-sou–a cheap boarding house that was formerly a hot springs inn, now full of super sexy, scantily clad female tenants. If Kogarashi can use his spirit abilities to banish the ghost that haunts the inn, he can even live there rent-free! But when the ghost, a beautiful teenage girl named Yuuna, appears before him, Kogarashi takes pity on her and is suddenly not so sure about the exorcism. Will he help save Yuuna from becoming an evil spirit? And what supernatural secrets do the other boarders hold?

World’s End Harem: The Man-Killer Virus: a lethal disease that has eradicated 99.9% of the world’s male population. Mizuhara Reito has been in cryogenic sleep for the past five years, leaving behind Tachibana Erisa, the girl of his dreams. When Reito awakens from the deep freeze, he emerges into a sex-crazed new world where he himself is the planet’s most precious resource. Reito and four other male studs are given lives of luxury and one simple mission: repopulate the world by impregnating as many women as possible! All Reito wants, however, is to find his beloved Erisa who went missing three years ago. Can Reito resist temptation and find his one true love?

Seven Seas will launch its new Ghost Ship imprint for older readers with three titles already announced: To Love Ru Vol. 1-2 Omnibus (December 5, 2017), To Love Ru Darkness Vol. 1 (December 5, 2017), and Yokai Girls Vol. 1 (January 2, 2018).

Also under Ghost Ship, the Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs manga series will appear for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms as single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in print on March 6, 2018 for $12.99 USA / $15.99 CAN.
