Seven Seas Entertainment is delighted to announce the license acquisition of the manga The Secret of Friendship by Kazune Kawahara and Aiji Yamakawa—a self-contained shojo drama of romance and friendship written by the author of the hit manga series High School Debut and My Love Story!!
Eiko and her best friend Moe couldn’t be more different: Eiko is a shy, average-looking girl while Moe is beautiful and envied by everyone at their high school. Though their personalities are total opposites, the bond between them is incredibly strong. Moe might have an endless supply of suitors, but when it comes to actually dating them, she has a condition: her boyfriend must value Eiko more than he does Moe. No one has yet been able to meet her condition—not until a boy named Tsuchida appears, at least. What will Eiko do when her relationship with her best friend begins to change?
The Secret of Friendship will be released for the first time in North America in December 2023 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the book available in a single large-trim edition. An ebook edition will also be available on digital platforms.
