Gakkou Gurashi!
Three high school girls and a teacher are camping at school.

The First Article of the "School Life Club" Code reads:
The School Life Club encourages a spirit of self-governing independence by camping at school, as well as socializing with various after-school clubs, which you can't enjoy from regular classes alone."
Anything beyond this is a spoiler. It's K-On! meets Highschool of the Dead.

Nekomusume Michikusa Nikki

("Catgirl's Wayside Grass Diary"). By Ike, the artist of the Golden Sky Stories rpg, with similar themes.

Thought of a couple more.

I am a Hero. 16 volumes and counting, but if you're doing Freezing...
In a list of "10 Great Zombie Manga", Anime News Network's Jason Thompson placed I Am a Hero at number 1, considering it "probably the greatest zombie manga ever".
To go along with Strike Witches and Girls und Panzer, maybe one or more of the Kancolle manga?

It's a Shogakukan title, so only Viz has access to it.

I recall it tanked when Del Rey put it out, and Kodansha didn't continue it when they took over.

Can Seven Seas get Kodansha properties? With the anime episodes streamed here, the manga's popularity might have increased.

No, Kodansha has their own American publishing arm, so we don't have access to any of their titles.

I would like to third that. The series is hilarious. I think it's a style of humor that translates better to a US market than a lot of other comedy manga, too.

I've noticed that you guys have now licensed another one of my requests which is "Franken Fran", so I've decided to revise my list of requests again by taking off some titles from the list and adding some new ones.

Here's my revised list of requests

Titles That I Really Want to See Licensed and Published the Most:

Love x Rob x Stockholm
Mamacolle
Momo Lover (Momo Raba)
Monochrome Boys and Girls (Monokuro Shounen Shoujo)
Metsuko ni Yoroshiku
Nariyuki Makase no Tengu Michi
Nejimaki Kagyu
The Outcast and His Bride (Nokemono to Hanayome the Manga)
Granny's an Idol (Obaachan wa Idol)
Grampa is a Boy Detective (Ojiichan wa Shounen Tantei)
Housewife-Oh! My Sweet Honey!! (Oku-san)
Demon Princess VS (Onihime VS)
Opapagoto
My Little Home (Orange Yane no Chiisana le)
Rena in the Strange Town (Otogi no Machi no Rena)
Oumagadoki Zoo (Oumagadoki Doubutsuen)
Perowan! (Perowan!-Hayaku Shinasai! Goshujin-sama)
Play Marriage (Pure-Mari)
Zombie Cherry (Shikabane Cherry)
Shinbashi no Miko
Grim Reaper and Four Girlfriends (Shinigami-sama to 4-nin no Kanojo)
Novice Policewoman Kiruko-san (Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san)
Mythic Punch (Shinwa Ponchi)

Vampire Library
Oh, My Sweet Alien! (Yome ga Kore na Monde)
Soul Mate Tourist (Yuurei Ryokoudairiten Soul Mate Tourist)

Now here are the new titles that I really want to see licensed and published the most...

Lady Justice:

"Marufuji Enta has a crush on Kenzaki Ameri and as they visit the same class for the first time the best day of his life starts! Ironically, he gets kidnapped until a mysterious hooded girl appears in front of the gangster's car in the name of justice!" (Obtained from https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=121704). This would also be another good title to license and publish if the company is still ever looking for any good superhero titles to license and publish. Did I also mention that this manga also features cameos of Stan Lee the publisher of Marvel Comics?

Moon Flower Beauty (Gekka Bijin):

"Based on the early Japanese folktale Taketori Monogatari, this is a story about a Princess exiled from the moon and her story on Earth.

On the dark side of the moon exists a highly advanced civilization divided into two clans, the Takenouchi family and the Umenouchi family. Takenouchi Kaguya is the daughter of Takenouchi Fumiya, the acting queen of the clan. Kaguya is the next in line for the position for queen but she refuses to be obedient and wants to enjoy life. The bratty Kaguya despises her mother and the people around her for being so strict and often wishes she was never born as a princess.

Queen Fumiya has been severely ill for many years now, but has kept it from her daughter in order to protect her but her condition has worsened. The Umenouchi family takes this opportunity to start a coup and takes over the government. Knowing that she is not able to ensure her daughter’s safety on the moon, Fumiya sends Kaguya to Earth with the powerful katana that symbolizes her ownership of the moon. Without the sword, the Umenouchi family cannot usurp control of the moon. Kaguya is forced to mature and become stronger in order to take back what was once her mother’s!" (Obtained from https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=52969).

I still hope that you guys license and publish these titles even if some of them may be hard to obtain, and if you can't then I'll still understand. :ympray: I also apologize again if this sounds like that I'm being pushy and impatient but I'm not being any of those things. I hope that you will license and publish my requests. :ympray:

yet again i would love to see Yuru Yuri
but i wanna ask whats the rule on something that has been licensed but the group that licensed that shut down?
Yuru Yuri was kind of licensed by JManga but it shut down in 2012 so does that mean someone else can license the manga or not?
