Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce their acquisition of the dark harem fantasy manga, How to Build a Dungeon: Book of the Demon King, written by Warau Yakan, with art by Komiya Toshimasa. A beautifully-illustrated manga series that features a darker take on the dungeon genre, How to Build a Dungeon: Book of the Demon King is the tale of one man’s thirst for power and his ambition to create the ultimate dungeon.
At the end of his life, after decades of painstaking research, Aur’s quest for ultimate power is within reach. But first he must die! Now, reborn into a magical world as the Demon King, he uses his newfound abilities to make his dark visions a reality. Upon summoning an alluring succubus known as Lilu to serve him, he immediately begins the task of creating a dungeon—an underground kingdom of his own, filled with all manner of fantastical beasts. As Aur crafts the intricate and dangerous world of his dungeon, he’ll learn what it takes to become a true Demon King, with all the pleasures, troubles, and trials that come with it. And his enemies will cower in fear!
“How to Build a Dungeon: Book of the Demon King has been a strong seller in Japan, and we’re confident it’ll find its English audience too,” said Seven Seas production manager Lissa Pattillo. “Stories about surviving in a bleak fantasy world have been embraced by manga readers around the world, but How the Build a Dungeon really switches things up with a main character who builds the world himself.”
Seven Seas will present How to Build a Dungeon: Book of the Demon King for the first time in print in North America as single volume shrink-wrapped editions. Each book will contain at least two full-color pages. Volume one will be released on October 11, 2016 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
