Seven Seas Licenses I SHIP MY RIVAL X ME (THE COMIC / MANHUA) Full-Color Boys’ Love Series

Posted on March 20th, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of the Chinese manhua series I Ship My Rival x Me by PEPA and Qualia. This full-color comic adaptation of the danmei/Boys’ Love novel is a lighthearted romantic comedy about two actors who might just bring their shipping rumors to life.

Wei Yanzi and Gu Yiliang debuted together three years ago, from the same agency, so it was inevitable that they’d be considered rivals by their fans. Unfortunately for Wei Yanzi, while Gu Yiliang has phenomenal acting skills to go with his idol-tier good looks…Wei Yanzi only has the idol-tier good looks. He’s so tired of reading online hate comments accusing him of scheming to undermine Gu Yiliang that when he stumbles across a community of people who fervently believe the two actors are an item, it’s not just a shock—it’s a relief! Moved by these fans’ passion and thrilled to find a community where nobody’s trash-talking him, Wei Yanzi becomes addicted to their posts analyzing his and Gu Yiliang’s every move for shipping fuel.

Of course there’s nothing actually going on between the two of them…but as he spends more time with Gu Yiliang on the period drama they’re filming together, why is Wei Yanzi starting to feel like the shippers might actually be onto something?!

I Ship My Rival x Me (The Comic / Manhua) Vol. 1 will be printed for the first time in the English language in November 2024 for $19.99 USA / $25.99 CAN, with the series available in full-color, large-trim editions as part of the Seven Seas Webtoons label.
