Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the license acquisition of Sadako-san and Sadako-chan by Noriaki Sugihara and Aya Tsutsumi, based on the Ring novel by Koji Suzuki and the Ringu/The Ring horror film franchise. This hilarious manga takes a look at the softer side of one of horror’s most iconic monsters!
One day, as Sadako goes to claim her next victim, she meets another girl named Sadako. “Sadako-chan” is a precocious young child who’s eager to help “Sadako-san” adjust to the modern era–no more climbing out of TVs, it’s all about YouTube now! With the help of her new friend, can Sadako finally move on from her tragic past? This adorable spin-off to the genre-defining Ringu franchise is terrifyingly funny!
Seven Seas will publish the manga Sadako-san and Sadako-chan for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single oversized edition. The book will be released in June 2021 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
