Seven Seas Kills 'Nymphet'

'Not Appropriate'

Published: 05/30/2007 12:00am

Seven Seas Entertainment has decided not to publish its American edition of Nymphet.  Seven Seas president Jason Deangelis told ICv2 that the company had decided ''s not appropriate for Seven Seas to publish Nymphet,' and that it would cancel its release of the manga. 


Controversy had arisen because of Nymphet's storyline, which featured a student's romantic attraction to her teacher.  DeAngelis initially released a statement (see 'Jason DeAngelis of Seven Season Nymphet') explaining the cultural context of the story in Japan, and why he thought the story was appropriate for North American audiences.  He did, however, note that others did not necessarily share his views and that Seven Seas would explore the subject further.  DeAngelis announced the change shortly thereafter.
