Frequently Asked Digital Questions
Why is ___________ not available anywhere as ebooks?
Digital licenses are separate from print, and so a publisher having the right to publish a physical edition does not automatically give permission to release an ebook. Reasons these rights are not available may vary, from pending licenses, the rights already belonging to another company, or simply a Japanese licensor or creator not wishing to see their books made available online. Seven Seas Entertainment is not able to discuss the specifics of a series’ current contractual status but all efforts are being made to make as much of our library available in ebook formats as possible.
The ___________ series has several volumes available on Kindle/Comixology but then suddenly it stops, even though further print books are available. What gives?!
Amazon’s Kindle and Comixology platforms have their own restrictions on what content is available. Because of this, some of our more mature rated series have had books pulled or been made unavailable in their entirety. Unfortunately this is outside of a publisher’s control, but the books remain available on other platforms. Currently affected titles include To Love Ru Darkness, The Testament of Sister New Devil Storm!, Magika Swordsman and Summoner, Dragonar Academy, and Kanokon.
Why is ___________ available on all platforms except ___________?
If not due to content restrictions (see question above), then this is likely just a specific platform not being caught up on available material. While Seven Seas makes all backlist content available to platforms at relatively the same time, it is up to an individual digital publisher when they choose to release them.
Is the content in ebooks the same as in print?
Generally, yes–all content pages are the same in both print and digital editions. Sometimes there’s a change in format, non-story pages, or structure, such as how select series printed as omnibus editions are published online in their original single volume forms. This includes titles such as To Love Ru and orange.
Can I download DRM-free versions of Seven Seas books?
Seven Seas books are hosted on a variety of platforms and subject to the DRMs of those individual services and software.
Does Seven Seas publish any series digital-only?
As a publisher, we focus primarily on print books and have only released one digital-exclusive title–the one-chapter OKAYADO title, Deadline Summoner. However, some of our older books may now be out of print, but remain online to purchase as ebooks.
