Girl Friends volume 1 on the Best Sellers list!

Posted on: October 13th, 2012 by Shannon Fay 1 Comment

I can be quite annoying when I have something to brag about.

I do work for a manga publishing company called Seven Seas doing script adaptation. Basically, after a manga is translated from Japanese to English, it gets sent to someone like me who reads it over and edits it for flow and clarity. One series that I worked on, ‘Girl Friends,’ is now on sale! Whoo-hoo!

That’s reason enough to celebrate, but on top of that the first volume has placed on the New York Best Seller list for manga!

I’m pleased as punch. Obviously I’m happy for Milk Morinaga, the creator of the work. In ‘Girl Friends’ she has created a really sweet and wonderful love story and I’m not surprised that it’s a hit in North America as well as Japan. But I’m also really happy for the team at Seven Seas who worked hard to bring it over. As the saying goes, it takes a village: the licensing team who secured the rights in the first place, the marketing people who put the word out, and also the people who worked on the book itself like the translator, editors, and letterer. Good job everyone!
