The publisher has already licensed a number of popular boys love Chinese novels under its Danmei label, including two novel series by Roubao (The Husky and His White Cat Shizun and Remnants of Filth: YUWU).
The Case File Compendium will feature the uncensored novel chapters in “deluxe paperbacks with exclusive new covers and interior illustrations.” The novel will be also available digitally.
The Case File Compendium: Bing An Ben Volume 1 will be out on April 15, 2023, and will be priced at $19.99.
Unlike the two abovementioned novels by Roubao, Bing An Ben (病案本) is set in an entirely different universe. This is a sci-fi, danmei title and tells a tale of an elite man with a dark side and his doctor. Take a look at the Chinese novel covers below to get an idea!
The publisher’s official synopsis reads:
“In this modern tale with a sci-fi edge, an elite young man with a dark side develops a deep, aggressive relationship with his former doctor.
From the outside, He Yu seems to have everything going for him: he’s handsome, rich, and smart. But beneath his perfect facade, he’s hiding a dark secret–one that makes him a slumbering threat to the people around him. After spending years abroad, he enrolls in film school to pursue the girl of his dreams, Xie Xue…but that forces him to deal with her overprotective older brother, the man He Yu hoped he’d never see again.
Xie Qingcheng, an icy man of subdued emotion, was once He Yu’s doctor, and is the only person who knows He Yu’s terrible secret. He Yu swears not to let his past with this man get in the way of his feelings for Xie Xue, but he soon finds himself drawn into a tangled web of intrigue and violence that involves both of the Xie siblings. As a sprawling conspiracy sucks in He Yu, he must confront his own grudges and face new truths–including his own feelings for Xie Qingcheng, which warp into a fixation much darker than what he feels for the man’s sister.”
