Seven Seas Goes Bone-Deep Into Isekai with License of SKELETON KNIGHT IN ANOTHER WORLD Light Novels and Manga
(LOS ANGELES, September 20, 2018) – Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the license acquisition—both print and digital—of the Skeleton Knight in Another World light novels and manga by Ennki Hakari, KeG, and Akira Sawano!
One day, a gamer played video games until he fell asleep…and when he woke up, he found himself in the game world–as a skeleton! Equipped with the powerful weapons and armor of his avatar but stuck with its frightening skeletal appearance, Arc has to find a place for himself in this new, fantastical land. All his hopes for a quiet life are dashed when he crosses paths with a beautiful elven warrior, setting him on a journey full of conflict and adventure.
“As we’ve done with Arifureta, Toradora!, and Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!, we’re excited to publish both the manga and the original light novels of this series,” says Seven Seas Publisher Jason DeAngelis. “They’ll be released around the same time, so readers can choose whatever medium they like best–or enjoy both!”
Seven Seas will publish the light novels Skeleton Knight in Another World for the first time in North America in paperback and on digital platforms as single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on June 11, 2019 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
