Synopsis

Onodera Ritsu has just transferred from his father's publishing 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 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.

Background

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi: Onodera Ritsu no Baai has been published in English as World's Greatest First Love: Ritsu Onodera's Affair by SuBLime since April 14, 2015. The series has expanded into several Drama CDs, a light novel adaptation, multiple spin-off series, and a two-season anime adaptation. On July 24, 2015, the second English volume topped the New York Best Selling list. SuBLime announced via their twitter that it sold more than 1,000 copies in less than two weeks.

The series was previously serialized in Asuka CIEL, but moved to Emerald on August 30, 2014 when the magazine went defunct.

Yes...Yes... When we talk about Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, there MUST be comparison between this series and Junjou Romantica... Well, that's because they are both by the famous-yaoi-mangaka Nakamura Shungiku whose Junjou Romantica has become the top yaoi manga/anime known by ALL yaoi-fanatics. And when she came up with the new Sekaiichi, everyone was jumping up and down awaiting its release...

And now that it's released up to volume 6 (right?), in my opinion, it is another amazing work of art. Honestly, I find Sekaiichi quite more favourable than Junjou Romantica! Why? Hehehee... I'll take my time and explain! But first thing's first; I want people to know read more

This is a review of the manga Sakaiichi Hatsukoi. Judging from the art we can tell this is a work created by the same Mangaka as the popular Junjou romantica Nakamura Shungiku. As an avid Junjou Romantica fan I was looking forward to a season 3 and was a little disappointed when I found out that there more than likely wouldn't be one but I was ecstatic to hear about this being turned into an anime. For some reason for a while I overlooked the fact that it was a manga.

Story: This is often directly compared to Junjou Romantica, which is a normal read more

This is my first review but since this manga only has one I'm gonna try to write one.

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi is from the same author as Junjou Romanitca so the art style, the characters and the story line are sometimes the same.
Well it's my own opinion but I really like the artstyle of Junjou Romantica so, I like this art style too. If you're looking for a special new manga then this isn't really what you're looking for, it's nothing new but I don't think it's bad that they use a standard story line. Because of that they can concentrate on the art/characters/etc. read more

I'm sorry if I'm biased here. I really am.

Sekaiichi Hatsukoi-- literally means World's Greatest First Love, is quite a cheesy title. But seriously, take a time to understand the meaning of this title while reading this manga and advancing to the next chapters. It seriously has a deeper meaning than how it might seem.

Story - I have no complaints for the story. The story might be going on circles, but at least to me, it's really beautiful. Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is one of the few series I've ever read which can make me feel so depressed for the emotional scenes, and grinning like an idiot for read more
