(LOS ANGELES, June 28, 2021) – Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of both the original novel of essays and the separate manga adaptation of Until I Meet My Husband by Ryousuke Nanasaki and Yoshi Tsukizuki. This historic memoir by activist Ryousuke Nanasaki recounts his first experiences as a gay man while searching for his soulmate and eventual marriage–the first religiously recognized same-sex wedding in Japanese history.
From school crushes to awkward dating sites to finding a community, this collection of stories recounts the author’s “firsts” as a young gay man searching for love. Dating isn’t ever easy, but that goes doubly so for Ryousuke, whose journey is full of unrequited love and many speed bumps. But perseverance and time heals all wounds, even those of the heart. This moving memoir by gay activist Ryousuke Nanasaki, following his historic life story, was originally released in Japan in a novel of collected essays and in a beautiful manga adaptation–now both will be available in English for the first time.
Seven Seas will publish Until I Meet My Husband (Essay Novel) for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim edition. The book will be released in June 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN.
