Monster girl manga has become a global phenomenon, and, thanks to that success, an often requested series has been licensed! Seven Seas Entertainment has announced their acquisition of Katsuhisa Kigitsu's dark parody manga series, Franken Fran.
Seven Seas describes the series:
Somewhere, out in the sticks of rural Japan, there is a mysterious manor that is home to the greatest surgeon who ever lived. But when the surgeon goes missing, his reanimated daughter, Fran, takes up the family profession, and despite her Frankenstein-like ways, cares deeply for her patients and holds steadfast to the Hippocratic Oath. Fran's creed? “All lives must be saved, no matter the cost!”
Readers will join Fran, her twisted sister Veronica, and the rest of her monstrous entourage in a gruesomely hilarious tale that would put Mary Shelley to shame! Because for Franken Fran, the ends always justify the means, no matter what ungodly creations emerge from her lab.
“Franken Fran is one of our most requested licenses of all time,” said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “We already have such a passionate fanbase for monster girls—like for our bestselling series, Monster Musume—so Franken Fran is a great fit. It really pushes the envelope as both a horror and comedy.”
Seven Seas will present the much-anticipated Franken Fran for the first time in print in North America in four omnibus editions. Each book will contain two volumes-worth of content, and color inserts. The first omnibus will be released on February 16, 2016 for $19.99 USA / $22.99 CAN.
