Slip On Some Hamster Cosplay and Grab Your Snacks for the Seven Seas Release of HIMOUTO! UMARU-CHAN Manga Series!
(LOS ANGELES, Sept 15th, 2017) – Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition–both print and digital–of the manga Himouto! Umaru-chan by Sankaku Head, the basis for the hit anime about a lovable brat in a hamster hoodie!
In public, Umaru Doma appears to be the perfect high school student: hard-working, refined, and totally responsible. But the minute she gets home to her older brother Taihei–and dons her famous hamster hoodie–she devolves into the ultimate bratty little sister! She’s happy to roll around all day in an otaku cloud of games and junk food while her exhausted older brother takes care of everything in the house. In this hilarious comedy about family, friendship, and the nonsense we put up with (from the people we love), Umaru and Taihei will find a way to make it work!
Seven Seas will publish the Himouto! Umaru-chan manga series for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on May 22, 2018 for $12.99 USA / $14.99 CAN.
