Seven Seas Entertainment is happy to announce the license acquisition of the manga series The Dragon King’s Imperial Wrath: Falling in Love with the Bookish Princess of the Rat Clan by Akira Shikimi and Akiko Kawano. In this shojo/josei fantasy tale, an unlikely romance blooms between the princess of a realm’s lowest-ranking clan and the powerful Dragon King!
In a fantasy world inspired by ancient China, thirteen clans rule the land, and the Rat Clan is the weakest. Rueiin, the princess of the Rat Clan, is summoned to the land of the dominating Dragon Clan along with the princesses of the other tribes. The Dragon King seeks a bride, and they are all candidates! Instead of vying for the Dragon King’s favor, though, Rueiin takes the chance to lose herself in the palace’s enormous library—a place she can read to her heart’s content, since she’s driven by an insatiable curiosity. It’s there that she’s “found” by the Dragon King himself, who immediately kisses her and claims she’s the one for him?! A fantastical love story begins!

When some people start feeding the strays in their neighborhood, Nanao cautiously starts to bond with them.

Seven Seas Licenses THE GREAT SNAKE’S BRIDE Manga Series
Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manga series The Great Snake’s Bride by Fushiashikumo. In this critically acclaimed and sensual fairy tale, can a woman sacrificed to a snake god learn to love her non-human husband?
For 500 years, a giant snake god has lived in the ancient mountain. Miyo, an unlucky young woman from the nearby village, has been offered as a tribute: she is to be the snake’s bride. Miyo always feared that the enormous talking snake would devour her whole, but once she’s taken in by the god, he treats her like a wife rather than a meal. His flicking tongue vibrates through gentle words, his powerful slithering body wraps around hers in an embrace. This god is kinder than his monstrous form implies, and Miyo thinks she could learn to appreciate the non-human form his love takes. What does it truly mean to be the bride of a beast...?
The Great Snake’s Bride Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in North America in July 2023 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions.
