Ask @SevenSeasEntertainment:

Does the 7seas staff actually like yuri? Or can it be said to be some kind of neutrality, like eh, idk it's my job. Like, ofc not everyone likes every genre/series, and some just have a weak spot for it

We're a company made up of a number of different people, but the majority of us enjoy yuri very much. We are absolutely a company of fans! It's no coincidence we're the largest publisher of yuri in North America, and we'll continue to share our love of it by bringing lots of great titles to our readers' bookshelves! -- LP

What ever happened to the HayateX(Cross)Blade series? Was it dropped? It's still ongoing in japan and I really missed that series. I was just wondering since I no longer can buy it directly from Barnes&Noble anymore. This question has been on my mind for a while. Thank you!

Hayate x Blade was moved to a different publisher in Japan, Shueisha, who co-owns Viz Media. Unfortunately that meant we couldn't license the series anymore. It would be up to them whether or not the series is continued to be published in North America now. --LP

Is there any chance that you'll license any of these mangas? Ao haru ride, Namaikizakari, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Coffee and Vanila. Is there something/anything we(the community)can do to have these published?

The majority of those series are published by Shogakukan and Shueisha, who own Viz Media, so predominantly it would be up to them whether or not these series are licensed for release in North America. --LP

Monster Girl Encyclopedia comes out this (or next) month? is there any news on it soon? It's been so quiet for over year.

It's not typical for us to publish ongoing news about a book's production, so there's nothing to worry about in regards to Monster Girl Encyclopedia and it being 'quiet'. That said, the book is coming out on October 25th and will be well worth the wait! -- LP

I just found out that you've licenced Disappearance of Hatsune Miku, does this mean that licencing a light novels series (as long as they're not too long) have a sticky note on them rather than a straight "can't" like before?

We've never been 100% against light novels, but they require considerably more time and cost to publish, and manga continues to remain the more popular and requested medium. As with any series, we're open to just about anything we have access to, but it needs to be the right fit! --LP

I went to a Japanese bookstore the other day and saw that the orginal manga books are smaller than the ones in the U.S. I was curious on why that is. Is it to show better value? Or is it because if it's too small nobody will buy

Every publisher has their own reasons for picking particular trim sizes, although a lot of it can be attributed to a standard started by Tokyopop and Viz Media during North American's earlier manga boom. At Seven Seas, we typically release our books in the standard Japanese trim size, or in some cases, oversize if the original book was published that way or for special editions. --LP

Why has NTR Trap's trim size been changed? :/

The trim size of NTR Netsuzou Trap hasn't been changed so much as it's been changed back. Although initially our intent was to release it at the same size as Citrus, upon working on the title we deemed it would better serve the series to release NTR at its original size. This way English readers can experience it in the same format as its Japanese release. It'll be our standard manga trim size, and every inch of it a great read this September! --LP

Do you think you folks will be expanding out to other digital platforms? And in the near future?

Currently we're focusing on growing the number of titles we have available on the most requested eBook platforms--Kindle, NOOK, BookWalker, and comiXology. A number of our titles are also available via the ComicsPlus app. That said, we're certainly open to expanding to other digital platforms in the future if the demand is there. -- LP

Was "No Game No Life" manga discontinued in Japan? Novel,anime, and lastly the manga released by you was really popular, wasn't it? It feels a bit sad, especially since the first volume is already out in English. What did happen...

We released the first volume of the manga for No Game, No Life. Unfortunately, yes, the manga series was cancelled in Japan after only a single volume. If the creators ever choose to continue it, we'll certainly be looking into publishing any new volumes! --LP

The gomanga links to the omnibus versions of Kanokon don't work (404'd), Amazon has the first four volumes digitally, and BookWalker has the whole series. For an older series like this, why isn't it completely available from Comixology / Amazon anymore?

Unfortunately Comixology and Kindle have deemed the content of Kanokon inappropriate for their platforms, and are not allowing us to sell them digitally. However you can still purchase the entire series on BookWalker Global and Barnes & Noble's NOOK! -- LP

Are there any plans to release the rest of Dragonar Academy on the kindle store, now that Monster Musume has made it through?
