Boy Meets Maria

Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of Boy Meets Maria by PEYO, an LGBT+ manga exploring love and gender at a high school drama club.

The synopsis for Boy Meets Maria is: Taiga dreams of becoming an actor, so the first thing he does upon entering high school is joining the drama club. There, he meets the beautiful, enigmatic Maria and immediately falls in love with her. Not long after, Taiga is told that she is actually a boy–but is that all there is to Maria’s story? This beautifully illustrated one-volume tale, the debut work of creator PEYO before their untimely passing in 2020, explores the layered nature of personal expression and the fluidity of the power of love.

Seven Seas will publish the manga Boy Meets Maria for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim edition. The book will be released in October 2021 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN. You can pre-order or purchase it through our ComiXology link.

Established in 2004, Seven Seas Entertainment specializes in bringing the best of Japanese manga and light novels to North American audiences and producing original comics, graphic novels, and youth literature. As of July 2021, Seven Seas and all of its book imprints are distributed by Penguin Random House Publisher Services.
