Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce, through its Airship light novel imprint, the license acquisition of the novel Riku Can’t Be a Goddess by Kumi Tamaru. From an award-winning author comes this collection of four emotionally gripping stories about high schoolers’ acceptance of themselves and each other.
High school student Ichika has a secret. She’s letting Riku, her childhood friend and secret crush, explore his interest in cross-dressing by acting as his personal dress-up doll–that is, until an unexpected kiss upends this happy arrangement, sending Ichika fleeing in a panic. But they’re not the only ones finding themselves and putting their hearts through the wringer in the process. These four coming-of-age tales follow teenagers as they find–and confront–their true selves.
Riku Can’t Be a Goddess (Light Novel) will be released for the first time in the English language in July 2024 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the book available in a single large-trim edition as part of Seven Seas’ Airship imprint. An ebook edition will also be available (early) on digital platforms.
