Seven Seas is distributed by Macmillan, and is their second largest distribution client in North America. Releasing about 300 book per year, Seven Seas holds hundreds of licenses from Japanese publishers and rights holders, many of which rank as best sellers in the category.
Seven Seas’ lineup includes a vast array of genres and sub-genres. From best-selling titles like Monster Musume and The Ancient Magus’ Bride, to the Harvey Award-winning manga My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness and the Eisner-nominated sci-fi romance orange, to hardcover editions of revered classics like Devilman, Captain Harlock, Cutie Honey, and Space Battleship Yamato, the breadth of Seven Seas’ catalogue appeals to a broad swath of fans.
One of Seven Seas’ areas of expertise is creating original-English language manga.

In addition to creating original works, Seven Seas licenses existing IP and adapts them into manga, such as Speed Racer and Ringworld.
