    Full of clichés, bad example for relationships
    I picked up this anime after reading the premise, and thought that a shonen-ai set in the world of shojo manga creation might be interesting. Well, I managed to watch it all the way to the end, if that counts for anything.

    It's so full of standard yaoi tropes that they simply couldn't contain them all in only two characters. There are three main couples here, but they might as well all be the ...

  • First BL I ever watched and I'm not disappointed
    Likes: First of all, I liked the setting: queer individuals with their own problems and insecurities trying to juggle work and their personal lives. As an office worker I can say that the portrayal of daily work environment and relationships is very funny and realistic (personally I related to Onodera and how he feels/reacts to everything he faces at his new job ...

  • Loved this show, but...
    I was worried that the boy/boy action was going to turn me off from the get go, but surprisingly it was the thing that kept me interested. [I do understand how that makes me sound creepy. I've accepted it. ] Yes, this was a homosexual romance, but it wasn't all... Queer as Folk [which just watching the first episode left me extremely uncomfortable, way too much sex, too little plot.] Also they are ...

  • 4.2 Stars - Cliche, But Endearing and Enjoyable Throughout
    Storyline 4.2/5
    Been obsessed with yaoi/shounen ai recently, so I decided to give this a shot. It didn't disappoint. Although I personally loved this anime and was enjoying it throughout, it wasn't perfect. I understand that it's an anime, but some parts just felt too unrealistic to me. The start of each of the three couples' relationships seemed too easy. The phrase "I love you" seems to ...

    This is a cute yaoi anime!
    I really like the characters in this anime. I loved how some of them didn't want to confess their love to the other even though the other one loved them. There was a lot of moments when I was like "oh my god, my heart can't take this anymore!" If you like yaoi animes then this would be a perfect one for you.

    Dude come on really.
    I'm going to be simple. Every male charter is ether character 1 or character 2 there is no difference in looks from protagonist to extra. They all look the same. I really can't tell who it is that's in the scene. I have to wait and see what the background is for me to tell which character it is, it's just crazy!

    I enjoyed the series, but a few things bothered me.
    Although Sekaiichi-Hatsukoi is intriguing with the whole boy love idea, I felt like I would be watching the same episode over and over with Ritsu and Takano. Takano repeatedly attempts to force himself onto Ritsu, and he recoils. This happens numerous times through out the series. There is weak character development. Ritsu has a hard time admitting his feelings for Takano, and never really does ...

  • Very heart-warming, leaves you wanting for more...
    I really crave for the third season of this. It may be that it's stereotypical for Nakamura Shungiku's two works where the main couple is focuses on a rejecting but unsuccessful uke, the second couple focusing on the progress of a relationship and the third focuses on how fate brings two people together... But this one really left me crying because it touched my heart.

    We might be irritated in ...

    Favorite Yaoi EVER!!!
    Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi is a great anime and is super cute!!! This was the first boyxboy anime I ever watched and I am sure as hell glad it was this one. Each couple has a different story which makes it really interesting to watch. After watching more yaoi's you see how most of them either have a great story line but a bad relationship or a great relationship but a bad story line. All in all this is a ...

  • Flawless! 10/10 always.
    UGHHHHHHHHH. I have so many feels for this one. Its soooooooooooo good. It is a little cliche i'll admit. But it's really interesting and it's definitely one you have to watch if you're a yaoi fan. Both seasons were amazing. If I had the time I'd watch it again.
