Seven Seas describes the series
In a world where humans live side-by-side with anthropomorphic dinosaurs, Yuuma Asahikawa is a young man looking for a fresh start in life. It’s a classic case of “be careful what you wish for” when Yuuma begins dating Churio—a gorgeous Tyrannosaurus Rex with a ferocious appetite.
Follow the ups and downs of Yuuma and Churio’s bizarre romance as they spend their daily lives together. As Churio’s vicious claws, reptilian tail, and razor sharp teeth hinder even the simplest of activities together, will Yuuma, let alone their relationship, survive?
“My Girlfriend is a T-Rex—like Monster Musume but with a very prehistoric twist!” said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “The stories are cute, the characters are lovable, and the overall series works hard to answer that age-old question we've all wondered...can humans and dinosaurs really date?”
