In North America, Seven Seas holds the rights to the Jitsu wa Watashi wa… manga series. The first volume will hit stores on January 12, 2016 under the title My Monster Secret. The company describes the series as follows:
High school student Kuromine Asahi is the kind of guy who literally cannot tell a lie. Whether it’s trying to maintain a poker face in a simple game of cards, or keeping scurrilous gossip to himself, Asahi is a total failure when it comes to the art of deception.
So what happens when he stumbles upon the most shocking secret of his life? When Asahi learns that Shiragami Youko, a beautiful girl of few words, is actually a vampire. Can Asahi possibly keep his lips sealed?
