Seven Seas Licenses RIKU CAN’T BE A GODDESS Light Novel (Airship Imprint)

Posted on October 4th, 2023

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.
