Seven Seas Entertainment has announced the license of Yoshihiko Inui's "ultra-violent, dark parody" manga series Tomodachi X Monster. The series will be released for the first time in print in North America as three individual volumes, each with a color insert. The first volume will be released on February 23, 2016 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
They describe the series:
In a small mountainous village in rural Japan, strange creatures lurk. It's here that young Wataru hears a voice calling out to him. Wandering from his school, he soon discovers a new “friend” that will transform his life forever – or drastically shorten it. Wataru learns of a hidden world of monsters who seek to befriend young children, and together with them enter a horrifying death match.
"Tomodachi x Monster is like a certain pocket-monster story gone horribly wrong," said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “With this series you get to watch what really happens when kids with no conscience get hold of monstrous friends to do their bidding. Cute, yet macabre and gory. Tomodachi x Monster is to kids-and-their-monsters series what Magical Girl Apocalypse is to magical girl series.”
