(November 13, 2023) – Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of the danmei/Boys’ Love novel series Run Wild: Sa Ye by Wu Zhe. In this novel series originally released in Chinese—and which inspired a number of multimedia adaptations—two disaffected young men stuck in a run-down city discover that everything changes once they find each other.

Unwanted by his adoptive parents, Jiang Cheng leaves home to live in a cold, gray city with his deadbeat dad whose only talent is feeding a gambling addiction. Alone save for his suitcase, the rebellious teenage boy arrives at the train station ready to face his miserable new life.

But the moment he steps off the platform, Jiang Cheng meets the peculiar young girl Gu Miao, along with her big brother Gu Fei—a boy his age with a musical staff shaved into his hair. Rumor has it that Gu Fei is bad news with dark secrets of his own, but Jiang Cheng still finds himself pulled toward the withdrawn delinquent thanks to Gu Miao and, perhaps, fate. The unlikely friendship that blossoms between them shows Jiang Cheng the hidden depths of Gu Fei…and the hidden depths of his own feelings. The Seven Seas English-language edition of this romantic drama will feature exclusive new art.

Run Wild: Sa Ye (Novel) Vol. 1 will be released in the English language in early 2025 for $19.99 USA / $25.99 CAN, 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.
