Seven Seas Licenses RIPPING SOMEONE OPEN ONLY MAKES THEM BLEED Light Novel (Airship Imprint)

Posted on February 28th, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce, through its Airship light novel imprint, the license acquisition of the novel Ripping Someone Open Only Makes Them Bleed from award-winning author Yoru Sumino. Experience a brand-new, tender coming-of-age story about the tangled lives of teenage girls.

Seventeen-year-old Akane has everything she could ever want: friends, a boyfriend, and an all-round perfect life. No one knows that her every move is a calculated performance dictated by a compulsive need to be liked. Her flawless act is disrupted when she meets a man named Ai, who looks and sounds exactly like the protagonist of Akane’s favorite novel. Can this be a coincidence? And if not, what does it mean?

This ensemble drama of fragile hearts and intersecting fates comes from Yoru Sumino, bestselling author of I Want to Eat Your Pancreas and I Had That Same Dream Again—also available from Seven Seas.

Ripping Someone Open Only Makes Them Bleed (Light Novel) will be released for the first time in the English language in August 2024 for $15.99 USA / $19.99 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.
