Like Music to Your Ears: Seven Seas Licenses BECOME YOU: KIMI NI NARE Manga by Ichigo Takano

Posted on January 9th, 2019

Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manga Become You: Kimi ni Nare by Ichigo Takano, the new dramatic manga about high school musicians by the creator of the Eisner-nominated orange!

Ashie Taiyou is a high school musician with dreams of stardom, but when his bandmates quit on him, it feels like his dreams are slipping away. In an act of desperation, Taiyou strong-arms his sullen classmate Hikari into forming a band with him. Can the two boys turn their dreams into reality? Creator Ichigo Takano–of orange and Dreamin’ Sun fame–collaborated with band Kobukuro around the song Kimi ni Nare in Japan, creating this manga as part of a multimedia expression of hope for a brighter future.

Seven Seas will publish the manga Become You: Kimi ni Nare for the first time in North America in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on September 10, 2019 for $12.99 USA / $15.99 CAN.
