Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of the manga The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese and its sequel The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice by Setona Mizushiro, a Mature-rated josei drama about two men and their fraught sexual relationship by the creator of Black Rose Alice and After School Nightmare!
Ootomo Kyoichi, a weak-willed salaryman in a troubled marriage, is cheating on his wife. To his surprise, his wife hires a private eye to expose his affair–and the private eye is none other than Imagase, an underclassman Kyoichi knew in college. Imagase explains that he’s gay and always had a crush on Kyoichi, so he offers to hide the infidelity in exchange for the make-out session he’d always fantasized about back in college. Kyoichi reluctantly agrees, thinking it will save his marriage, but things with Imagase soon spiral out of control.
Seven Seas will publish the manga The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese and its sequel for the first time in North America in single volume editions. The first book will be released on November 5, 2019 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
