“Plus-Sized Elf” Manga Gets Licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced its North American licensing plans for the Plus-Sized Elf (Elf-san wa Yaserarenai.) manga series!

The fantasy comedy has only been publishing in Japan since December of last year and has already gained a ton of popularity. The story follows an elf girl who struggles with both her diet and love of french fries. Seven Seas describes the synopsis below:

“Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?”

Plus-Sized Elf will be published in single volume editions with the first to be released on October 9, 2018 for $12.99 in the US and $15.99 in Canada.
