Dear sir or madam,
we are an international group of fans who completely fell for the great series '7 Seeds' by Yumi Tamura, published by the Japanese publisher Shogakukan. It is our most sincere wish that this awesome manga may be also published in English language so that those who can't read Japanese will also be able to enjoy this wonderful story.
We have started an online support movement to gather more people interested in buying the series in English. It turned out to be very successful: 254 fans from all around the world voiced their willingness to buy the manga should it be published in English language. I’m sure there will be even more people interested in ‘7 Seeds’ once it’s being published in English – it’s truly a fascinating and addicting manga. You will find the poll results here: http://ysaye.questionform.com/reswidget/Sow-7-Seeds-to-the-entire-world-NOW%21%21%21%21%21%21%21%21%21%21%21
Thus, we wrote letters to you, to Shogakukan Inc. and to Yumi Tamura-sama in the deep hope that you may be willing to allow a bigger audience all over the world to enjoy the best manga ever, '7 Seeds'.
We also sincerely beg you that - should you decide to take up this project - the current high quality of '7 Seeds' may be kept up (i.e. good quality paper and printing, using the wonderful cover page pictures for your covers as well, properly cleaning and re-inserting all the soundwords and little side comments, inserting translator's notes in order to make the readers understand specific Japanese customs/expressions and plays on words etc...). All those little details play a very important part in making 7 Seeds such an enchanting series, so they absolutely shouldn't be neglected.
In order to introduce '7 Seeds' to you and to a larger group of interested journalists and manga fans, we also wrote a Wikia article about '7 Seeds'. You will find the link here: http://7-seeds.wikia.com/wiki/7_Seeds_Wiki
During the next few weeks, we will also begin our 7 Seeds email campaign: the enthusiastic 7 Seeds fans from all over the world will personally write emails to you or post on your Facebook page in order to beg you for including 7 Seeds in your high-quality manga program!
In the deep hope that the '7 Seeds' will be sown all around the world soon...
