Make way for the great Lord Marksman!
Earlier today, Seven Seas Entertainment announced that they acquired the domestic rights to Nobuhiko Yanai’s Lord Marksman and Vanadis manga series. The first volume is scheduled to hit stores on September 13, 2016.
The Lord Marksman and Vanadis manga adapts Tsukasa Kawaguchi’s light novel series of the same name. The series is currently running in Media Factory’s Comic Flapper magazine, and spans eight collected volumes.
Seven Seas describes the series as follows:
The country of Zhcted is ruled by seven women known as the Vanadis, a group of warriors who are given powerful weapons and dominion over the country’s seven territories. Taking advantage of its neighboring nations’ civil unrest, Zhcted goes to war against the country of Brune. In a battle that decimates Brune’s army, the brave, young Brune nobleman Tigrevurmund Vorn meets the beautiful Eleonara Viltaria—one of the Vanadis.
Impressed with his skill as an archer, Elen allows Tigre to live in exchange for his servitude. But the battle is far from over, and extends further than either of them could have imagined. Tigre and his new mistress become caught in the middle of a plot that threatens not only their homelands, but the entire world.
FUNimation currently holds the right to the Lord Marksman and Vanadis anime series, which aired in the Fall 2014 broadcast season. The company will release the series on DVD and Blu-ray in February 2016.
