Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of The Demon Girl Next Door by Izumo Ito, one of the top-requested series in the Seven Seas reader surveys. This hilarious manga about a weak demon girl and her powerful magical girl rival inspired the anime now available from Sentai Filmworks!
Yoshida Yuko was living a perfectly normal (if poverty-stricken) life, but at the age of fifteen, she suddenly sprouts demon horns and a tail! Her mother explains that she’s actually a demon named Shadow Mistress Yuko, once sealed away and cursed so that her family would remain poor for generations. Now Yuko can break that very curse if she defeats Chiyoda Momo, a magical girl who goes to her school…but Momo is stronger than she is, knows how to manage magical powers, and is so freaking nice that she’s actually helping Yuko out of scrapes. Yuko’s too weak and uncoordinated to straight-up kill Momo, even if she wanted to, but she can’t just be buddies with this generous magical girl, either–she has to break the curse on her family somehow. What’s a demon girl to do?
Seven Seas will publish the manga series The Demon Girl Next Door for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single large-trim editions. Volume 1 will be released in January 2021 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN.
