Rosmei Launches Preorders for HOW TO SURVIVE AS A VILLAIN Vol. 1

Publisher Rosmei recently launched preorders on their site for How to Survive as a Villain Vol. 1. The preorder period spans from December 24, 2023 to January 31, 2024, and volumes are expected to ship to Singapore buyers by June 30, 2024.

Rosmei explicitly states in their promotional copy that all buyers outside of Singapore must go through Group Orders, forwarding services, or other third-party sites. This is due to the terms of the licenses they purchase, which only permit them to sell inside Singapore. This means that these books will not be available for purchase at North American retailers like Barnes & Noble, Indigo/Chapters, or Amazon.

Original title 穿越成反派要如何活命, How to Survive as a Villain is a web novel that ran for 210 chapters on Shudan starting in 2019. It has since been published as a two-volume print in Chinese by publisher Via Lactea, and received a manhua adaptation. The English edition is slated to have three volumes in total. The story follows Xiao Yu’an as he transmigrates into a novel as a homosexual young emperor, and does his best to survive by pampering the male lead to avoid a tragic death—however, things take a drastic turn as the series progresses.

Rosmei has gained a following in recent months for a string of English danmei licenses. This marks the first time that the company has provided any further details about its releases, or established an estimated release date.
