Seven Seas Entertainment Licenses THE HUSKY AND HIS WHITE CAT SHIZUN Novel Series

Seven Seas Entertainment has announced the license acquisition for the popular danmei series The Husky and His White Cat Shizun: Erha He Ta De Bai Mao Shizun by Rou Bao Bu Chi Rou.

Seven Seas describes the story as below:

Massacring his way to the top to become emperor of the cultivation world, Mo Ran’s cruel reign left him with little satisfaction. Now, upon suffering his greatest loss, he takes his own life…

To his surprise, Mo Ran awakens in his own body at age sixteen, years before he ever began his bloody conquests. Now, as a novice disciple at the cultivation sect known as Sisheng Peak, Mo Ran has a second chance at life. This time, he vows that he will attain the gratification that eluded him in his last life: the overly righteous shall fall, and none will dare treat him like a dog ever again! His furious passion burns most fiercely for his shizun, Chu Wanning, the beautiful yet cold cultivation teacher who maintains a cat-like aloofness in his presence. Yet despite Mo Ran’s shameless pursuit of his own goals, he begins to question his previously held beliefs, and wonders if there could be more to his teacher–and his own feelings–than he ever realized.

Original title 二哈和他的白猫师尊, The Husky and His White Cat Shizun is a web novel that debuted on JJWXC in 2017 and ran for 350 chapters. It’s also known colloquially by fans as “2HA.” A live-action adaptation wrapped production back in 2020, and the series has inspired a manhua series (app only), available exclusively in its original Chinese for now.

The Husky and His White Cat Shizun is the best-known series of author Rou Bao Bu Chi Rou (“Meatbun Doesn’t Eat Meat”)—affectionately known as Meatbun by her fans. Said fans have been requesting an official English translation for years, and the fervor only increased after Seven Seas’ acquisition of the Mo Xiang Tong Xiu trio of series. Husky fans showed up in force with the announcement tweet reaching over 13,000 retweets on Seven Seas’ official account, including being RTed by Meatbun herself.
