North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment, the same distributor for printed versions of A Certain Scientific Railgun and Toradora!, has added the manga adaptation of Senran Kagura to its spring line-up.
The synopsis is described as followed:
Hanzo Academy: a secret high school established by the Japanese government to educate the newest generation of ninja girls. The spunky second year student, Asuka, along with her friends, the perverted Katsuragi, the childish Hibari, the mature Ikaruga and the deadly Yagyu, must each undergo rigorous training in their daily school life. But do they have what it takes to become full-fledged ninja? Only their bodacious skills and prodigious talents can keep them alive while they struggle against ninja rivals who seek to destroy them at every turn.
Under the title Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows, the manga series is created by Anami Takatsumi, and will see a North American release later in November this year, followed by the second volume that will be releasing in March 2014. Each volume will cost $12.99.
There is also an animated series that had just finished airing not long ago, and can be viewed at Funimation’s simulcasting site and YouTube channel.
Things are looking pretty good for Senran Kagura fans right now, with the possibility that the anime series will be released on DVD, followed by the English distribution for the manga. All that’s left now is seeing the games get released. And if there’s enough demand and support by the fans and publishers alike, then perhaps the Senran Kagura games may see a Western release.
Let’s just hope the publishers are willing enough to let it happen.
