Seven Seas Announces "Yokai Girls" Manga License

Volume 1 will be released in print on November 7, 2017

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced the acquisition of print and digital rights to Kazuki Funatsu's manga series Yokai Girls, which they describe as a "sexy action-comedy of monster (girl) proportions!" Volume 1 will be released in print on November 7, 2017 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN. 


If you're an industry watcher, it's noteworthy that the manga, also known as Youkai Shoujo - Monsuga, is from Shueisha's (part owner of Viz) Young Jump.


Volume 12 of the 2014 series is out in Japan today.


Seven Seas says:

Nishizuru Yakki has always considered himself a fairly normal guy--he’s graduated from school, works a part-time job, and has never had a girlfriend. Yet he does have one unusual ability: he can see yokai spirits! He usually copes with these ghostly visions by ignoring them...until he meets a mysterious young woman named Rokka. Now his normal days have taken a notably abnormal turn, as Yakki finds himself the sole defender of some sexy supernatural yokai!

“This is a really fun manga series with fantastic art,” says Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “As the title suggests, it features a unique spin on the now-familiar monster girl genre, but with yokai girls! We’re proud to expand the list of titles we publish--both with new genres, and with the genres our audience has told us loud and clear that they enjoy.”
