The official website for the 2014 film Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai confirmed that Chiaki Kon (Junjō Romantica, Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi television anime) is directing the new project at Studio DEEN. Yoko Kikuchi, the character designer of the two Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi television anime seasons, is reprising the role with Takahiro Yasuda.
Shungiku Nakamura's original Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi ~Onodera Ritsu no Baai~ manga follows the tension between a newly recruited manga editor named by Ritsu Onodera (voiced by Takashi Kondo on television) and his tyrannical editor-in-chief Masamune Takano (Katsuyuki Konishi) — who happen to share a common past. Miyako Fujisaki and Nakamura's 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.
