  • One of the best Yaoi anime out there
    I am very happy that crunchy roll is providing us with the opportunity to watch this anime. I have read the manga and am still reading that waiting impatiently for the new chapter to appear. I hope they create season 3 and we will watch it here. Cannot wait !

  • Love the story BUT..
    Don''t get me wrong, I LOVE this anime. But I felt like it was cut off too son and some things felt not finished? Overall, this anime is most likely one of the best written BL I've seen in awhile; yes, there was a lot of romance scenes, but they included everyone's lives and you can actually feel the love pouring out from all the couples. I wished they had one more episode about how they live/etc.

    I'm afraid I'll compare all yaoi to this standard!
    It's so easy to sympathize with the characters in Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi. After watching all of Junjou Romantica, I had to watch this, and if anything it's superior in my opinion. Unlike in Junjou Romantica, in this series Shungiku Nakamura nearly totally avoids the non-consensual aspect so sadly common in yaoi. This series is really well balanced, being sweet, romantic, and funny. My only criticism ...

  • Mediocre and unpleasant
    You might expect a show set in a shoujo manga editorial department to be sensitive to its own hideous cliches and narrative faults, but no. This show revolves around several couples but all of them fall into the weak-willed uke / strong seme type, even when they are obviously trying to avoid this! The way it's structured it devotes whole episodes to each couple, which makes moving between ...

  • I loved this show. (: <3 I'm kinda bummed that there's only two seasons though. ;-;
    I absolutely loved this series. I didn't really know what I was getting into when i clicked to watch that first episode, but as time went by, I found myself at the mall or at the grocery store thinking about this show wondering what was going to happen next. Once I started it, I couldn't stop. I really wish there were more seasons. Several more. I would really like to know if there's any other ...

  • Absolutely Adorable.
    I have only watched one other Yaoi series and thought it was ok, but this one really had me hooked. This anime has really screwed up my sleeping schedule, I just can't stop watching it. I haven't see a ton of Yaoi, so I am not sure if all of them have a similar plot, but if so I will definitely be watching more. The plot is amazing. At times this anime had me crying, but then the next episode ...

  • Cute! I need a third season!
    This wasn't my first BL but it's probably one of my favorites. It's made wrote by the same author as Junjo Romantica but I enjoyed this one much more. I think that even if you are not into BL you will like this, it's more shounen-ai than yaoi. The story was cute and the animation was great (for a BL anime) Only thing that I didn't like was that almost every character looked the same XD They had ...

    Could Reach past BL Fans!
    I think this anime could reach past the crowd of just BL/Yaoi lovers to all romance anime junkies.

    I originally picked this one up because of the good reviews regarding romance in the series. I think its a very good series to open up about "gayness" in pop culture. I find it a lot easier experience/be open gayness (I live in a very progressive area), now seeing any feelings as ...

    Maybe I'd enjoy this more as a young teen...
    I'm in my mid 20s and I watched this on a whim, just to see what the shounen-ai genre had to offer.

    If you want to read about why it's good, read other reviews. The only thing I will say I enjoyed was the interesting view of how relationships between guys might be and how it's still mostly seen as forbidden in Japanese culture. Oh, and it'll make the lady parts tingle a little.

    However, ...

  • 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 ...
