posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The wraparound jacket band on the fourth volume of Miyako Fujisaki and Shungiku Nakamura's Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai light novel series is announcing on Saturday that an anime film adaptation of the Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi franchise has been green-lit. The cast is scheduled to be announced on August 1 in the eighth volume of Nakamura's original Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi ~Onodera Ritsu no Baai~ manga. Kadokawa Group Publishing's Asuka Ciel magazine had announced in December that an anime adaptation of the Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai story is in the works.
The original manga's story follows the tension between a newly recruited manga editor named by Ritsu Onodera (voiced by Takashi Kondō on television) and his tyrannical editor-in-chief Masamune Takano (Katsuyuki Konishi) — who happen to share a common past. The Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai light novel series centers around Takafumi, a worker at the Marukawa publishing company with his own shared college past with Takano. He had helped bring Takano into Marukawa.
