Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi Anime Short to Screen Alongside New Film
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for Shungiku Nakamura's Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi and Junjo Romantica manga revealed on Friday that a new "Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi ~Valentine-hen~" anime short will screen alongside the 2014 Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai anime film. Nakamura is writing an original story for the short.
Chiaki Kon (Junjō Romantica, Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi television anime) is directing the Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi: Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai film at Studio Deen. Tohru Furuya (under the alias Noboru Sōgetsu) will play Zen Kirishima, and Kenyuu Horiuchi will reprise his role as Takafumi Yokozawa.
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.
