Seven Seas Licenses AN AUTUMN IN AMBER, A ZERO-SECOND JOURNEY Light Novel (Airship Imprint)

Posted on March 13th, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce, through its Airship light novel imprint, the license acquisition of the light novel An Autumn in Amber, a Zero-Second Journey from award-winning author Mei Hachimoku with illustrations by KUKKA. This supernatural drama from the same creative team as The Tunnel to Summer, the Exit of Goodbyes, is about setting aside differences to solve the mystery of a world frozen in time.

Socially awkward loner Kayato has an intense fear of being touched and finds making friends extremely difficult. When he and his high school classmates visit Hakodate for a field trip, he suffers through some attempts to engage with the others, until…

Time stops for the entire world, but not for him.

All the hustle and bustle of the city fades into an eerie veil of silence, leaving him the only soul left in motion–until he finds another in Akira, a sharp-tongued local delinquent. Though she’s his total opposite, she begrudgingly agrees to help him solve the mystery. Their only lead is something Kayato’s uncle said just before he died about a “world plucked out of time,” as if preserved in amber. Hoping to find a clue among his late uncle’s possessions in Tokyo, the two teens must travel through the frozen world.

An Autumn in Amber, a Zero-Second Journey (Light Novel) will be released for the first time in the English language in September 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.
