FAQ

Will Seven Seas be publishing any more danmei series?

If our current books continue to sell well, that increases the chance that other danmei will be published officially in English!

Seven Seas does not include specific content warnings on novels. However, Seven Seas does print age ratings on the back of books with a high level of adult content, such as books rated Mature.


Why has the release date of a book changed?

There are many reasons why release dates may change, including factors that are outside of our control. We're working hard to get high-quality translations and illustrations of your favorite books out to you—thank you for your patience!


Does this support the creator?

These are official English editions licensed from the rights holders, so every new copy purchased—ebook or paperback—will support the original creator, like the official editions in various other languages.

What about the manhua/comics?

Seven Seas is releasing the Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation manhua/comic as well, with multiple volumes already available. More details here.


Why do you include guides in the back of danmei novels?

Our faithful translations include specific terms and tropes that may be unfamiliar to new readers, so we also include various footnotes, glossaries, and/or guides to help explain them. Some series have more elaborate guides than others.


Can we order the books directly from you?

Yes! Along with being distributed by Penguin Random House, the largest distributor in North America—who provides service to many retailers and bookstores around the world—we also recently launched the GOMANGA Store!


Will you publish hardcovers, box sets, special editions, or merch?

Each series will be available in North America and in many bookstores around the globe. In case the books are not available in a store near you, some online retailers will also ship internationally.


Why is the price different on _______ website?

There are two set prices for our books—the US and CAN—however it is up to the discretion of retailers how to price the books, and some fluctuations may occur for a variety of reasons including sales or the exchange rate of your local currency.


How does Seven Seas decide how long a book will be, or how many volumes the full series will be?

This depends on many factors and is specific to each series. It's common for the number of volumes in a series to vary across all of the languages the series is printed in.


Are all the danmei novels in the same format/have the same type of content?

In general, the novels in our danmei label are prose paperbacks/ebooks with illustrations (both color and B&W) and some sort of appendix material in the back (glossary, etc.). Some series may have slight variations or include additional features, like French flaps, additional art, or a special edition release.


Why does an artist, translator, etc., sometimes change over the course of a series?

This is dependent on many factors, some of which are outside of our control (such as a health issue).


I'm overseas and preordered ______, but haven't received it yet! Where is it?

We distribute our books internationally but we can’t control how stocking or pre-orders are handled at every retailer, so customers need to contact them directly.

Resources

Glossary

A select list of terms for those new to the genre. All of our releases also include footnotes and/or guides specific to that series.Danmei: a Chinese fiction genre focused on romanticized tales of love and attraction between men, similar to BL (boys’ love) from Japan. The majority of well-known danmei writers are women writing for women, although all genders produce and enjoy the genre.Donghua: a term for animation from China, used in the same way as anime is for animation from Japan.Manhua: a term for a comic from China, used as manga (Japan) and manhwa (Korea). Manhua can be color or black and white, and pages read left to right.Baihe: the woman/woman counterpart to danmei, similar to Girls’ Love/GL or yuri from Japan.Xianxia: a fantasy subgenre of wuxia, with characters striving to achieve immortality. Xianxia has heavy Daoist and “cultivation” themes, includes magic, and might expand beyond the mortal realm to the heavenly realm, the ghost realm, and the cosmos.Cultivators: in xianxia, cultivators are spiritually powerful martial artists who seek to understand and be in harmony with the will of the universe, known as the dao (“the Path”)—a concept in many schools of Chinese religion and philosophy, including Daoism. Cultivation is the general process of training and strengthening one’s innate qi and spiritual core, which powers magical/spiritual abilities and can make one immortal (immune to illness and aging).Qi: sometimes written as chi, qi is the vital energy that exists in all living things, both righteous and poisonous. Cultivators strive to cultivate qi by absorbing it from the natural world and refining it within themselves.Transmigration: similar to the isekai genre in Japanese media, where a character—usually from the modern world—is transported to the past, the future, or a fantasy world, often one that was originally a novel or video game the transmigrator may have recently experienced in their first life.

Pronunciation Guide

Mandarin Chinese is the official state language of China. It is a tonal language, so correct pronunciation is vital to being understood!

Legend of Exorcism

In this thrilling high fantasy adventure set in ancient China, a naive young man must join hands with an unlucky general to protect the mortal world from evil spirits. This story takes place in the same universe as Dinghai Fusheng Records and inspired multimedia adaptations, including the animated series/donghua!Hongjun has lived his whole life in the mystical Taihang Mountains, a haven for yao: spirits with powerful magical abilities. A half-yao himself, he knows little of the human world until the day the ruler of the mountain instructs him to conceal his identity and journey to the mortal realm. There, he is to join the Department of Exorcism in the capital of Chang’an.Upon arrival, Hongjun finds himself under the command of Li Jinglong, a down-on-his-luck general with no spiritual abilities of his own. Along with his fellow exorcists—a group of enigmatic young men with uncanny talents—Hongjun and Li Jinglong must work together to protect Chang’an from the evil yao that lurk in its darkest corners.

From the author of Legend of Exorcism and Dinghai Fusheng Records comes a new modern-day romp! One famous director rents out the rooms in his house to other gay men in hopes of writing more realistic characters for his novel. But can he get along with these very different men long enough for him to finish his story?After a childhood fractured by parental discord and plagued by the death of his grandparents, Zhang Yuwen is no stranger to making lemons into lemonade. Now twenty-seven years old, the reclusive, gay, and single Zhang Yuwen has taken his lofty inheritance—including a 6-bedroom house on Riverbay Road—all the way to the bank, becoming a multimillionaire movie director and mogul. However, Zhang Yuwen still longs for one thing: to be a famous writer among the likes of Dostoevsky and Kafka. When his contacts at a prestigious publisher refuse to publish his debut novel, calling it “fake” and “contrived,” Zhang Yuwen is left reeling.Still, all is not lost. If the editor says his two-dimensional characters prove he doesn’t socialize enough, all he needs is a little more interaction with other single, gay men. Easy! He can put up an ad to rent out the rooms in his house and have the men come to him. After all, how much trouble could a handful of other single guys really be?
