The Seven Seas English-language edition of all three danmei novels will feature uncensored text and exclusive new art for each volume. 

Here are the details about the three newly licensed danmei series: 


Peerless: Wu Shuang 

Story: Meng Xi Shi

The first volume will be released for the first time in English in July 2024, with the series available in large-trim paperback editions as part of the Seven Seas Danmei label. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.

Synopsis

One dark and snowy night, after the Sui dynasty has come into power, a convoy sent by the Kingdom of Khotan is ambushed and massacred. Not a living victim remains–and the attackers, along with a chest holding precious treasure in tribute, have vanished.

A member of Emperor Yang Jian’s secret intelligence agency, the Jiejian Bureau, pursues the case: the highly successful chief Feng Xiao. Feng Xiao’s investigations take him to Liugong City, where all the top martial powers across the land are coming to meet. But another intelligence agency, the Zuoyue Bureau, has business in the same city – and they have sent Cui Buqu, an ailing but brilliant man who rivals Feng Xiao. These two equally proud men immediately clash and begin a battle of wits, only to hit a dead end on the increasingly cold case. Is the answer to this mystery out of reach, or can Feng Xiao and Cui Buqu find a way to the truth? 

You’ve Got Mail: The Perils of Pigeon Post – Fei Ge Jiao You Xu Jin Shen 

Story: Blackegg

The first volume will be released for the first time in English in August 2024, with the series available in large-trim paperback editions as part of the Seven Seas Danmei label. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.

Synopsis

In the Xia dynasty of ancient China, a secret club was established for gay men to meet and hopefully find a lifelong lover: the Peng Society for Gentlemen. A man could provide a self-portrait, some personal information, and a mailing address (along with a subscription fee) to be listed in The Pengornisseur, a discreet monthly publication mailed to subscribers via pigeon post.

Wu Xingzi is a gay government official without money, status, or hope. Thoroughly miserable, he decides to end his life on his 40th birthday, but he has one last goal: to lose his virginity. He puts his life savings toward a subscription to the Peng Society for Gentlemen in the hope that it will direct him into the arms of another man before he dies. But paying for admittance to this special club gives Wu Xingzi more than he bargained for! 

The Disabled Tyrant’s Beloved Pet Fish: Canji Baojun De Zhangxin Yu Chong

Story: Xue Shan Fei Hu 

The first volume will be released in English in April 2024, with the series available in large-trim paperback editions as part of the Seven Seas Danmei label. Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.

Synopsis

After Li Yu stays up all night to read an engrossing webnovel, he finally falls asleep–only to wake up in the world of the novel itself. And not as himself, but as a helpless fish! Shocked and dismayed, Li Yu quickly realizes that he must live in a tank owned by Mu Tianchi, the tyrant of the novel who never speaks. Whatever force brought Li Yu into this world warns him that there’s only one way to become human again: to win over the cold Mu Tianchi and change his harsh ways. But Li Yu has no idea how to do that, especially as a powerless, palm-sized carp. Can a little fish really swim its way into a tyrant’s heart?
