Continuing to build upon their ever-growing library of manga titles, Seven Seas Entertainment have announced they have acquired rights to the on-going shoujo manga series, Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf, by Hachijou Shin.
While based on the classic story Little Red Riding Hood, this manga sets out to be a cheeky take on the tale, aimed at those for fans of Alice in the Country of and Dictatorial Grimoire. This reinvention of the tale reverses the roles of the original, giving readers a lovable cry-baby Wolf and an ongoing Red Riding Hood who just can’t help but want to tease him.
Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf will be released as single-volume collections, with each volume also set to include at least one full-colour illustration among its pages. Volume 1 will be available on June 13 2017 for $12.99 USD or $14.99 CAN.
