Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the license acquisition of the manga series The Case Files of Jeweler Richard by Mika Akatsuki, Nanako Tsujimura, and Utako Yukihiro, one of the top-requested series through our reader surveys. This beautifully illustrated, heartwarming mystery romp is based on the popular light novel series that also inspired an anime!
When Japanese college student Seigi Nakata rescues a handsome young jewelry appraiser from a group of drunken assailants, he gets more than he bargains for! The appraiser is Richard Ranashinha de Vulpian, a brilliant and mysterious British jewelry expert. Seigi hires Richard to appraise a ring left to Seigi by his grandmother…and the adventures are just beginning. Together, they unlock the secret messages hidden in the hearts of jewels—and those who possess them.
Seven Seas will publish the series The Case Files of Jeweler Richard (Manga) for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in February 2022 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
