Emotionally Complex Characters And An Action-Filled Story Will Appeal Equally To Shojo And Shonen Manga Fans

San Francisco, CA, November 12, 2012 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, has announced the launch on November 13th of its latest manga (graphic novel) series with the debut of the gothic fantasy action series 07-GHOST. The new series, written and illustrated by Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara, is rated ‘T’ for Teens and will carry an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN.

The paths of one evil god, two rival empires, three unlikely bishops and seven brave ghosts converge in the destiny of Teito Klein, a boy who vows to master a powerful artifact known as the Eye of Mikael in order to lay bare the secrets of the world’s – and his own – murky past. All Teito wants is to forget his dark past as an orphan and slave and to graduate from Barsburg’s military academy with his best friend Mikage. But when an overheard state secret triggers treasonous memories, he’s forced to flee from the very empire he once sought to defend!

“07-GHOST is an emotionally complex ongoing series that will appeal equally to shonen and shojo manga fans,” says Hope Donovan, Editor. “Fans have been eagerly awaiting this license rescue. With its varied and entertaining characters and action-filled plot, 07-GHOST will appeal strongly to readers looking for supernatural action with hints of romance and comedy. We look forward to new readers and fans diving into this series!”

Yuki Amemiya and Yukino Ichihara write and illustrate 07-GHOST, the duo’s first series. Since its debut in 2005, 07-GHOST has been translated into a dozen languages, and in 2009 it was adapted into a TV anime series that is also available in North America on Crunchyroll. The 07-GHOST manga series also won a rare double-first prize in the third Zero-Sum Comics Grand-Prix, meaning it was chosen for first place by both readers and editors.
