Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of the danmei/Boy’s Love novel series The Disabled Tyrant’s Beloved Pet Fish: Canji Baojun De Zhangxin Yu Chong by Xue Shan Fei Hu. In this novel series originally released in Chinese–and coming to the English language for the first time–a man is transported into the historical world of a webnovel to win over a tyrant…as his pet fish.
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? The Seven Seas English-language edition of this fantasy transmigration/isekai comedy will feature uncensored text and exclusive new art.
The Disabled Tyrant’s Beloved Pet Fish: Canji Baojun De Zhangxin Yu Chong (Novel) Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in April 2024 for $19.99 USA / $25.99 CAN, with the series available in large-trim paperback editions as part of the Seven Seas Danmei label.
