Manga Monday: Kakuza Fiance: Ex-Yakuza and Stray Kitty

Hello Gemmies, happy Manga Monday! I have a brand-new license announcement to share share you today. Ex-Yakuza and Stray Kitty by Riddle Kamimura, is coming to Seven Seas Entertainment! This story features an adorable kitty who is saved from a life on the streets by a menacing former gangster…who has a secret soft side! This sounds like a great fun slice of life manga and I cannot wait to dive into this series!


One cold and rainy winter’s day, a tiny kitten named Sabu is abandoned on the side of the road. When Sabu is rescued by Jin, a retired yakuza boss, the poor kitten fears things have gone from bad to worse–and that this would-be savior has murder on his mind! Yet beneath Jin’s scarred hands and scary face lies a sweet man who loves pampering kitties with baths, bottle-feedings, and whatever else his tiny companion needs. Be sure to get your paws on this hilariously adorable tale about an unlikely pet pair!

Published by Seven Seas Entertainment, Ex-Yakuza and Stray Kitty will be released for the first time in North America in November 2022 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN, and will be available in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions.
