Space Battleship Yamato
The human race has one year left to live. Aliens known as the Gamilas have attacked Earth, poisoning it with radioactivity and driving humans underground. As humankind grows sicker by the day, their final hope is the space battleship Yamato–constructed from secret plans and equipped with advanced technology. Its mission: to reach a distant planet and bring back a cure to save humanity. Will the ship and its crew rescue the Earth in time?
Seven Seas will publish the manga series Space Battleship Yamato: The Classic Collection for the first time in North America in print as one large trim hardcover omnibus. The book will be released on October 30, 2018 for $29.99 USA / $34.50 CAN.
When humans en masse shrink down to a tiny size, a girl named Alice and her pup Poco find themselves struggling to survive. Surrounded by strange yet familiar sights, they work to make a new life. That’s easier said than done, however, in a world that’s bigger–and more dangerous–than ever.

On top of that, he’s betrothed to the previous king’s daughter! To get the country back in order, Souma gathers a group of gifted individuals to his side. Will their impressive talents and his own knack for logistics be enough to get the country on its feet again?
