Leapin’ Lizards! Seven Seas Licenses The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer

Leapin' Lizards - Seven Seas Licenses The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer

The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer? I have no idea what to think of a series with that name. Even after I read the synopsis, I’m still not entirely sure what to think of this series. Seven Seas recently revealed it as their newest license via a teaser video:

The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer – Satoshi Mizukami

This series was originally distributed digitally by the now shutdown, JManga who gave the following for a description:

“Asamiya Yuuhi was an ordinary college student… until the day a lizard showed up and asked him to help save the world. The next thing he knows, he’s been given a ring and special powers, plus an enemy stalking him. However, he’s saved in the nick of time by the girl next door, Samidare, who’s planning… WHAT kinds of things?! This is an unconventional story that mixes ordinary life with the bizarre and supernatural!”

So lizards, rings, mysterious next door neighbour planning… things?! The plot doesn’t do much for me, but I’m a pretty easy win-over with art that cute. Biscuit Hammer‘s creator – Satoshi Mizukami – also had a story in Dark Horse’s anthology, Trigun: Multiple Bullets. That combined with their short time on JManga’s makes them a returning creator to the North American manga scene and hopefully one whose book will find its way into the hands of fans new and old.

As for when? That’s a mystery! Seven Seas has yet to comment on when they intend to release the first volume of this series. The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer is complete in Japan at ten volumes.
