It’s April soon, it’s April sooooooon!
Shungiku Nakamura, the same mangaka of Junjou Romantica, and Miyako Fujisaki’s new yaoi Sekaiichi Hatsukoi has been adapted to an anime! 😀
It’s scheduled to be aired on April 4th in Japan, but it has been aired in some other countries already. So after some research the other day, I found the OVA! >w<
and of all places, on youtube.
Onodera Ritsu has just transferred from his father’s pblishing company to Marukawa Shoten. Assigned to the shoujo manga division, he crosses path with the person he’d least expected to meet. Takano Masamune is the editor-in-chief of the division Ritsu’s been assigned to, and the two seem to get off on the wrong foot right from the very start when Takano unexpectedly kisses him. However, there is more to than what meets the eye: Takano is actually Saga, Ritsu’s senpai and high school love-whom Ritsu had thought to have played him for a fool by taking his affections for granted when he confessed and summarily dumped him.

The story takes the same place as Junjou Romantica, and you’ll cross path with some characters from JR. Isaka-San, for example, has a supporting role in the series 🙂
Ritsu Onodera (25)
Editor. Only son of Onodera, worked for his father in the literature department at Onodera Shuppan for several years, then applied for a post at Marukawa Shoten and ended up in the shoujo department, Emerald, against his will. At first he was thinking of resigning after 2 weeks, but he decided to stay and show Takano what he’s worth. Being hurt by his first love in high school, Onodera promised himself not to fall in love again.
Seiyuu: Takashi Kondo
Masamune Takano (Couldn’t find his age, but I think he’s something between 26-30 since he was Ritsu’s senpai)
Formerly known as Saga Masamune. Editor in chief in Emerald department, people call him “the Capable”. He dated Onodera in high school, but split up over a misunderstanding. “I will make you say that you love me again” he said to Onodera, will Onodera fall again?
The episode is supercute, but I recommend reading the manga first. ‘Cause if you watch the anime first, not knowing what’s going to happen, you’ll probably think everything’s going way too fast ><
Well, it does, but it’s not that fast if you’ve read the manga first x3
So here’s a couples of links for the manga:
In my opinion, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is not as epic as Junjou Romantica, but I really like it! It’s a good yaoi, and JR fans should totally check it out ;D I also recommend this to those who like purehearted and cute yaoi ^_^
