Seven Seas Entertainment launches GoManga.com

Official Press Release

(Los Angeles, October 25, 2004) – Seven Seas Entertainment announced today
the launch of their web site, www.gomanga.com. The site will initially
promote Seven Seas’ four flagship titles: Amazing Agent Luna, Blade for
Barter, Last Hope and No Man’s Land, as well as providing an online
community for fans to meet the creators and discuss manga from around the
world.

“Most manga have the benefit of exposure in Japan before they are released
here in the U.S.,” commented Seven Seas president, Jason DeAngelis. “We
wanted to give readers a similar chance to see our books and get excited
about them before they hit the shelves.” To this end, each of the four
launch titles will be made available for free to anyone who visits
gomanga.com, with several pages appearing each week up to and beyond the
February 2005 launch date.

Gomanga.com will be updated every weekday with a wide variety of material,
including:

  • Never-before-seen pages from each manga every week
  • Articles about the industry and the process of creating World Manga
  • Character sketches, cover treatments, and original artwork from the Seven Seas manga artists
  • Forums devoted to manga and anime from all over the world
  • Exclusive downloads and interactive contests

Gomanga.com is supervised by Jake Forbes, veteran manga editor and fan, who
is contracting with Seven Seas to create and manage content for regular site
updates. “The internet has long been the unsung hero of manga’s explosive
growth around the world, with online communities turning series like Fruits
Basket and Rurouni Kenshin into ‘hits’ years before their English-language
debuts,” said Forbes. “Gomanga.com will offer readers the same opportunity
to discover and discuss exciting new manga, only here they’ll have the
unique opportunity to interact with creators as well.”

All four Seven Seas manga are set to release in February 2005.
