Editorial Reviews

Because Ritsu Onodera hates to rely on family connections he quits a job as a literature editor at his parents' company, Onodera Publishing, and winds up taking a job at Marukawa Books. To his chagrin, he is assigned to the sh?jo manga department in spite of having no interest or experience in it. And on top of that, he has an awful first impression of his high-handed editor-in-chief, Masamune Takano. What comes after is a story of first love full of tears and laughter.

There isn't much I can say about this without giving away vital features of the show, except for WOW!!! It was so exquisitely enticing. All of the characters stories and backgrounds were fantastic and thrilling. Just as great of Junjo Romantica. You won't be disappointed.

The anime was fabulous, I loved the story and romance behind it. The anime was well worth the price, came with two CDs of the original soundtrack + all of the episodes. I recommend this seller to others who are looking to buy this anime.

The overall quality of the anime was great but the subtitles were not. This DVD is not completely legit.If you know anything about subs and how they are usually done you would instantly notice. For people that like yaoi and shounen ai then you've probably heard of aarinfantasy. Well they translate and sub stuff from japan and are not "professionals" per se but they get the job done right and that's were the subs came from not the makers of the anime. Along with that the case of the discs was scratched and scuffed a little but still noticeable because its black. Other than that everything was fine. It came triple packaged. It also got here sooner than it was expected to be.

I was debating whether to write the Sekai Ichi review given this series doesn't have an "official" DVD boxset, but I think I'll do it after all since I'm in the Sekai Ichi mood.

I'll say it right now. Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi is superior in almost every way to Junjou Romantica despite being a spin-off. Sekai Ichi takes place in the same universe so characters from the previous yaoi show are mentioned or make small cameos and while Junjou Romantica focuses on different couples with the common theme is most of them are in the English major. Here EVERYONE works in the manga industry no exception. And the best part is that the details of how to make a manga is VERY accurate (given how Nakamura works in this very industry and goes through the same crap that everyone else does). If you didn't know this was a yaoi series, you would think its a comedy, slice of life (which this series applies to more than Junjou Romantica). Additionally, the theme of this story is very important and very true.

"There is truth in what people say that first love is one of the most important relationships in a person's life. For better or for worse."

This series takes this statement and runs away with it as fans like me have noticed that the first love is the most important (but its usually the SECOND love that makes the characters happy but that theme applies to Junjou Romantica series more than this one). So while we're given a better series overall and the better couples, we're also given the WORSE couple ever in yaoi series that makes me hate being a yaoi fangirl and disappointed about how many fangirls defend the pairing.

Nostalgia: The main pairing of our story is about Ritsu Onodera and Takano Masamune.
