Seven Seas Entertainment has a new manga license acquisition with the Penguindrum work being picked up. This run comes from writer Kunihiko Ikuhara working with artist Isuzu Shibata, which is in turn based on character designs by Lily Hoshino! The series began in 2013 as serialized in Comic Birz and Gekkan Birz with five volumes total when it wrapped up.
Seven Seas will publish the manga series in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions with the first volumes scheduled for release on December 3, 2019 for $12.99 USA / $15.99 CAN.
Plot Concept: When high school girl Himari Takakura escapes the clutches of death thanks to a quirky spirit inhabiting a penguin hat, she gets a new lease on life—but there’s a catch. In order for her to stay alive, her twin brothers (with the help of three penguins) must track down a strange object called the PENGUINDRUM and in doing so, delve into the mysteries of their very existence. This supernatural drama is based on the anime by acclaimed director Kunihiko Ikuhara, best known for his work on Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and the currently airing anime Sarazanmai.
