Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license for The Dragon King’s Imperial Wrath: Falling in Love with the Bookish Princess of the Rat Clan manga series by Akira Shikimi and Akiko Kawano. In this shojo/josei fantasy tale, an unlikely romance blooms between the princess of a realm’s lowest-ranking clan and the powerful Dragon King.

In a fantasy world inspired by ancient China, 13 clans rule the land, and the Rat Clan is the weakest. Rueiin, the princess of the Rat Clan, is summoned to the land of the dominating Dragon Clan along with the princesses of the other tribes. The Dragon King seeks a bride, and they are all candidates. Instead of vying for the Dragon King’s favor, though, Rueiin takes the chance to lose herself in the palace’s enormous library—a place she can read to her heart’s content, since she’s driven by an insatiable curiosity. It’s there that she’s “found” by the Dragon King himself, who immediately kisses her and claims she’s the one for him. A fantastical love story begins.

The Dragon King’s Imperial Wrath: Falling in Love with the Bookish Princess of the Rat Clan Volume 1 will be released for the first time in North America in May 2023 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the series available in print and on digital platforms in single large-trim editions.
