Seven Seas Entertainment Reveals Cover for CASE FILE COMPENDIUM: BING AN BEN Vol. 1

Publisher Seven Seas Entertainment has revealed the cover for their upcoming English edition of Case File Compendium: Bing An Ben Vol. 1.

Posting on Twitter/X, Seven Seas credited the cover artist as Boki, with the series’ interior art being drawn by DanKe.

Case File Compendium, also known as Bing An Ben (病案本), is a modern danmei novel series written by Rou Bao Bu Chi Rou (“Meatbun Doesn’t Eat Meat”). Meatbun is also the author of the bestselling series The Husky and His White Cat Shizun: Erha He Ta De Bai Mao Shizun, as well as Remnants of Filth: Yuwu. Like those two series, Case File Compendium has been rated for Mature Readers (18+, or age of majority in your country).

The series is listed on their website as having “a mix of exclusive color and b/w interior illustrations as well as special appendixes (glossary, character guide, etc.).” Starting with their recent release of Guardian: Zhen Hun Vol. 1, Seven Seas is no longer printing their new danmei series with french flaps, as present on all their danmei releases up to that point.

Case File Compendium is a psychological thriller with a sci-fi edge. It focuses on the relationship between the volatile He Yu and his former doctor, the cold Xie Qingcheng—who is also the brother of the girl He Yu has returned home to pursue. The back cover description reads as follows:

The Devil and His Doctor

Wealthy and handsome, yet mentally unstable—He Yu has returned home from overseas with one goal in mind: to win the heart of Xie Xue, the girl of his dreams. However, in his time away, he has nursed more than unrequited feelings. He must confront his long-held grudge against Xie Xue’s overprotective brother, Xie Qingcheng, who doesn’t think He Yu capable of love.

But history is not easily rewritten. As He Yu’s former doctor, Xie Qingcheng is the only person in the world who truly understands He Yu’s volatile mental illness. When the two are involved in an explosive incident that exposes a dark secret, Xie Qingcheng’s suspicions about He Yu are confirmed. Now, He Yu must confront his own demons…including his dark obsession with Xie Qingcheng.

Case File Compendium: Bing An Ben Vol. 1 will be released on February 13, 2024, and preorders are currently open.
