It's a double dose of Ikuhara! Seven Seas Entertainment is bringing the novels of the Penguindrum anime out in English, as well as the self-contained manga spinoff to the Sarazanmai anime, Sarazanmai: Reo and Mabu.

 

Kunihiko Ikuhara and Kei Takahashi's Penguindrum series is coming out in single volume editions for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms starting with the first volume on May 19, 2020.

 

Synopsis:

Twins Kanba and Shoma live with their terminally ill little sister, Himari. One day, they visit the aquarium, a place full of warm memories for Himari, but she suddenly falls ill—and dies! At that very moment, a voice cries out, “Survival Tactic!” and Himari, wearing a penguin hat, comes back to life…?! After licensing the PENGUINDRUM manga series earlier this year, Seven Seas is excited to bring the fans another iteration of this intriguing series.
