  • "World's Greatest" may be an exaggeration
    URGH. I was really happy to see some BL on here. Then I started watching it and wanted all the couples to break up.

    When someone takes advantage of you when you're drunk, its rape, whether you like them or not. When someone pushes you to the floor and sticks their hand down your pants its sexual assault. I really did like Onodera and Takano's backstory, and if Takano would just stop assaulting ...

  • I REALLY SHOULDN'T HAVE WATCHED THIS AT AGE 12 BUT IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER
    This was the literal cutest thing I have ever watched, cute characters, hardcore, THREE PAIRING, GAY MAKE-OUT SESSIONS! It was just fabulous and I'm too young to take it all in, just.. squeeeee!!. Most people are going to think it's weird, so don't watch it if you aren't into the things I listed above

  • New to the yaoi, not sure if it's for me, but not a bad introduction
    As a girl, I'm not sure if it's normal to have watched at least one yaoi anime, if you're into anime or not, but I gave it a shot with this one. I figured "how bad can it be?" It turns out, not that bad actually. I'm though if there was anything more graphic in the yaoi department to this series, I probably would not have been able to finish the series. And I make sure to always finish a series, ...

  • Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover
    That's what people usually say but this time I judge it by it's cover, or more like the title. I've been on crunchyroll for awhile now, it's sort of my source for anime but in other words I usually don't like judging anime or anything really just from the looks. I then came upon this and the the title, "World's Greatest First Love" just got me. I'm a hopeless romantic and besides from the BL ...

  • Best. Anime. Ever!!!
    I had SO much fun watching this show. I don't know how I lived without it. All I do now is write fanctions about it. Best. Anime. Ever. After I write fanctions, I usually just rewatch my favorite scenes. Those usually only include the romantic ones.

  • First yaoi, brings back memories
    This was my very first yaoi! It's a great beginner BL anime. I normally have very high expectations of art and animation while watching anime, and cannot stand to watch a show that has a bad style. This style is cute and fun to watch. I liked Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi much more than Junjou Romantica, mostly because Junjou's style was much too dramatic and predictable. All in all, I loved this anime and ...

  • 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 ...
