Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of the manga series Yomotsuhegui: Scions of the Underworld by Masasumi Kakizaki–an action-packed supernatural horror about a battle over eternal life!
Nawa Kanetsugu used to be a police officer, until his wife and child were murdered and he sought revenge by any means necessary. In a new quest for vengeance after he’s released from prison, he discovers that a mortal wound won’t kill him. A confrontation with a mysterious girl shows Nawa that he’s eaten the fruit of Yomotsuhegui, the tree in the realm of the dead, and now he’s an immortal with monstrous powers. The girl is a god of death who wants his help to fight other dangerous immortals, since there may still be a seed of justice in his heart. Will Nawa find his humanity again in saving others from supernatural evil, or will these ghastly powers turn him into a monster?
Yomotsuhegui: Scions of the Underworld Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in North America in February 2024 for $14.99 USA , with the series available in single volume editions. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.
