The March issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Ciel magazine is announcing on Saturday that plans for a television anime adaptation of Shungiku Nakamura's Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi boys-love manga are in the works. The story follows the tension between a newly recruited manga editor and his tyrannical editor-in-chief — who happen to share a common past.
Nakamura also created the Junjo Romantica manga, which was previously adapted into two television anime seasons in 2008. Tokyopop published the Junjo Romantica manga in North America, while The Right Stuf International licensed both of its television anime seasons. Nakamura inserted some characters from Junjo Romantica into Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi.
Update: More background and story information added.
