Seven Seas Reveals Cover for Guardian: Zhen Hun Vol. 1

Seven Seas Entertainment has unveiled the cover for Guardian: Zhen Hun Vol. 1—and with it, the reveal of the series’ artist and translation team!

The cover artwork has been provided by Marmaladica, who has been creating fanart for the series since the completion of the live-action adaptation. Marmaladica will be providing the covers for the three-volume series, though it’s unclear if they’ll be providing the interior illustrations as well. The translators for the series are Yuka, Shry, and amixy.

Seven Seas’ blurb on the back cover describes volume one as below:

Zhao Yunlan heads up a covert division of the Ministry of Public Security that deals with the strange and unusual, blurring the line between the mortal realm and the Netherworld. His cocky, casual attitude conceals both a sharp mind and an arsenal of mystical tools and arcane knowledge.

While investigating a gruesome death at a local university, Zhao Yunlan crosses paths with the reserved Professor Shen Wei. Zhao Yunlan is immediately intrigued by Shen Wei’s good looks and intense gaze, and the attraction between them is immediate and powerful, even as Shen Wei tries to keep his distance. Shen Wei and his secrets are a puzzle Zhao Yunlan feels compelled to solve as mysterious circumstances throw them together, and their connection becomes impossible to deny.
