posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Ani-One Asia announced on Tuesday that it will stream Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi: Propose-Hen (The World's Greatest First Love: Proposal Arc), the new anime based on Shungiku Nakamura's The World's Greatest First Love: The Case of Ritsu Onodera boys-love manga, on its YouTube channel on Saturday, August 15 at 8:00 p.m. GMT +8. It is streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the anime.
The anime's event screenings opened in theaters in Japan on February 21.
The new anime celebrates the fifth anniversary of Kadokawa's Emerald magazine, where the manga is currently serialized. The magazine launched in August 2014. The magazine is based on the magazine of the same name from within the story of The World's Greatest First Love. The manga transferred to the magazine in its debut issue.
The manga follows the tension between a newly recruited manga editor named by Ritsu Onodera and his tyrannical editor-in-chief Masamune Takano — who happen to share a common past.
The manga debuted in Kadokawa's The Ruby magazine in 2006, and moved to Asuka Ciel in 2009, before moving to Emerald in August 2014.
The manga has previously inspired anime adaptations. The first and second seasons premiered in April and October 2011, respectively. The two OVAs shipped with the fifth and sixth compiled volumes of the manga.
