Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce the license acquisition of the webcomic series Obnoxious Hero-kun by Amanda Rahimi (Amanduur) for a print and ebook release in the new Seven Seas BL label. In this hilarious Boys’ Love hit that originally began on the Tapas Media digital platform, a ridiculous playboy and the sharp-tongued dude in his class get (literally) tied up in a romance that shocks everyone–including themselves!
At school, everyone loves Hiro (especially Hiro). Handsome, charismatic, and overflowing with poetic praises of himself, he can get any girl he wants with just a smile and an abundance of background sparkles. He definitely doesn’t waste any of his precious time thinking about Takashi, a stoic and somewhat icy boy who sits in front of him in class. Hiro’s always glaring at Takashi for being so uncool, not staring longingly at Takashi’s stupid beauty mark! When Hiro pushes his theatrical charm too far and finds Takashi daring him to kiss, Hiro realizes that being the hero of his own story means facing a dizzying array of heart-pounding challenges…like figuring out his true feelings for the very blunt, very hot Takashi. And dealing with exactly how much fetish gear is in Takashi’s closet.
Seven Seas will publish the entire hilarious series in print for the first time in one oversized edition of over 600 pages! The uncensored, Mature-rated book will include the full story and bonus chapters originally serialized on Tapas, as well as an exclusive new cover and author’s note from the creator.
Obnoxious Hero-kun: The Complete Collection will be released worldwide in May 2023 for $24.99 USA / $32.99 CAN, available in print in a single large-trim edition as part of the Seven Seas BL label. An ebook edition will also be released on digital platforms.
