Seven Seas Announces Three New Licenses to Start the Week Off

As part of their “Fall Into New Licenses” extravaganza (their words, not mine), manga and light novel publisher Seven Seas has revealed three new licenses which are sure to please fans!

License number one is a fantasy series titled Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest by Ryou Hakumai and RoGa. The manga is a companion piece of the light novel series which will also be published by Seven Seas in 2018. The series will be released in both print and digital formats with the first volume hitting store shelves on March 6th, 2018.


When a classroom of students is transported to another world to act as its saviors, Hajime Nagumo finds himself the weakest link. As his friends and classmates are granted strong classes and impressive abilities due to their existing skills, he is given the weak title of Synergist. When a dungeon quest leaves him separated from his group, Hajime must discover his own talents or be left to rot in this world forever.

License number two is a twofer in the sense that Seven Seas has licensed both the light novel and the manga editions of Didn’t I Say To Make My Abilities Average In The Next Life?! by FUNA, Itsuki Akata, and Neko Mint! Both will be released starting in June 2018 as single volume editions.


When she turns ten years old, Adele von Ascham is hit with a horrible headache–and memories of her previous life as an eighteen-year-old Japanese girl named Kurihara Misato. That life changed abruptly, however, when Misato died trying to aid a little girl and met god. During that meeting, she made an odd request and asked for average abilities in her next life. But few things–especially wishes–ever go quite as planned.

Finally we come to the last license of the day which is for a one shot story titled Mushroom Girls in Love from the creator of A Centaur’s Life. This single shot story will be released July 3rd, 2018 in a large trim size.


Our story begins on an all-woman planet of intelligent fungi, where Ariella and Eriella are about to get married! But they’ve got a long road ahead of them: illness, surgery, and even a dastardly royal plot that seeks to split them apart. Is their love strong enough to weather any storm? This offbeat, adorable, and dramatic one-shot is sure to please fans of yuri, monster girls, and enduring romance!
