Seven Seas announced its acquisition of Yu Aida's Gunslinger Girl and Masayuki Takano's Blood Alone manga. Both titles were previously released by now defunct companies - the former by ADV Manga and the latter by Infinity Studios. Both series will receive new translations and lettering.
The first six volumes of Gunslinger Girl will be released in two omnibus volumes, with the first hitting in February 2011. Single volume releases will begin with volume seven. Twelve volumes are currently available in Japan, and the series still runs in Dengeki Daioh magazine.
The first three volumes of Blood Alone will be released in a single omnibus volume in May 2011, then continue with a single volume release. At present, the series spans six volumes in Japan.
