Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of Seiju Natsumegu’s supernatural manga, Ghost Diary.
Ghost Diary is a new ongoing manga series about a young exorcist’s search for his sister after she vanishes, leaving behind only a mysterious notebook filled with secrets about hunting ghosts. The beautiful artwork and haunting tone of the series will make it a must-have for supernatural manga fans.
Sukami Kyouichi comes from a family of exorcists, the strongest of whom has always been his sister, who keeps a special notebook by her side that details how to defeat even the most malevolent of ghosts. One day, shortly after his sister rescues young Kyouichi from a haunted shrine, she goes missing. Six years later, with only the notebook as his guide, Kyouichi is confronted by someone claiming to have been his sister’s friend. Who is this stranger, and what does she know about his sister’s disappearance?
“Once we saw the lavish covers for Ghost Diary, we couldn’t look away, and the interior content did not disappoint,” said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “Seiju Natsumegu has woven together a suspenseful story of ghostly hauntings and sibling connection, littered with memorable characters. Ghost Diary is a fantastic addition to our ever-growing library and we’re proud to be publishing Seiju Natsumegu’s debut work.”
Seven Seas will present Ghost Diary for the first time in print in North America as single volume editions with at least one color insert per volume. Ghost Diary Vol. 1 will be released on April 18, 2017 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
