Seven Seas Licenses "Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto" Manga

Nami Sano's award-winning series scheduled for August 2015

North American publisher Seven Seas announced the fourth license in its week of manga acquisitions, and this time it's Nami Sano's award-winning Sakamoto desu ga?, AKA Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto. The first volume is scheduled for August 2015.

 

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto first debuted in 2011, and currently runs in Enterbrain's seinen anthology harta. In 2013 it won the Comic Natalie Grand Prize, and Da Vinci magazine put the first volume at the top of the Book of the Year list of Male-Oriented Comics from January to June of the same year.

 

 

Synopsis from Baka-Updates:

First-year high-school student Sakamoto isn't just cool, he's the coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting everyone's attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent him. There's even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he moves through his high-school life with confidence and class!
