Classroom of the Elite by Syougo Kinugasa and Tomoseshunsaku
Audiobook narrated by Eddy Lee, best known for anime voice acting and starring as Alexander Hamilton in the hit Broadway show, Hamilton.
This massively popular cutthroat school drama began as a light novel series and inspired manga and anime! Students of the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School are given remarkable freedom—if they can win, barter, or save enough points to work their way up the ranks! Ayanokouji Kiyotaka has landed at the bottom in the scorned Class D, where he meets Horikita Suzune, who’s determined to rise up the ladder to Class A. Can they beat the system in a school where cutthroat competition is the name of the game?
Classroom of the Elite (Audiobook) Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023. Pre-orders are available now at sevenseasaudiobooks.com
Reborn as a Space Mercenary: I Woke Up Piloting the Strongest Starship! by Ryuto and Tetsuhiro Nabeshima
Audiobook narrated by Fred Berman, award-winning audiobook narrator also known for his role as Timon in Broadway’s The Lion King.
This light novel series is a sci-fi isekai adventure that also inspired a manga—from the creator of Survival in Another World with My Mistress! When Satou Takahiro is swept away from his ordinary life into the world of his favorite video game, a universe of space battles, interstellar colonies, and danger in the vastness of outer space awaits. Soon, he’s living as “Hiro” the mercenary, with a tricked-out spaceship and a babe on each arm! There are space pirates to fight, girls to rescue, and trouble to get into (and hopefully out of). Hiro is going to live his new life to the fullest!
Reborn as a Space Mercenary: I Woke Up Piloting the Strongest Starship! (Audiobook) Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023. Pre-orders are available now at sevenseasaudiobooks.com
The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent by Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri
Audiobook narrated by anime voice acting star Veronica Taylor, best known as Ash Ketchum in Pokemon and Sailor Pluto in Sailor Moon.
Originally a light novel series, this charming shojo/josei fantasy isekai tale inspired a manga, a spin-off, and an anime! Could workaholic office lady Sei be a legendary Saint? Not according to the crown prince of another world who summoned her and quickly declared a different girl was the real Saint! That suits Sei just fine—she would much rather spend her days quietly helping people with her unbelievably powerful magic. But how long can Sei live her ideal life of leisure before her true nature is revealed?
The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (Audiobook) Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in June 2023. Pre-orders are available now at sevenseasaudiobooks.com
