Seven Seas Licenses THE CONCIERGE AT HOKKYOKU DEPARTMENT STORE Manga Series

Posted on March 27th, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the manga series The Concierge at Hokkyoku Department Store by Tsuchika Nishimura. Retail work has never been wilder than in this award-winning manga that inspired the anime movie–coming soon to North American theaters!

Working retail is tough enough with regular human customers, but what about when they’re owls, wolves, koalas…and a woolly mammoth? Welcome to the Hokkyoku Department Store, where new employee Akino’s customers are talking animals–including extinct species! Just like any shopper, each has their own complicated request that Akino must strive to satisfy. From a wealthy laughing owl searching for the perfect present to delight his wife to a thespian sea mink attempting to find a gift for a long-awaited reunion with her father, Akino must learn to meet their needs, while also dealing with her challenging coworkers and elusive floor manager.

The Concierge at Hokkyoku Department Store Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in August 2024 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, with the series available in single large-trim editions. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.
