With the feature having hit theaters this past March 15th, 2014, Kadokawa has now set up the details for the home video release for Sekaiichi Hatsukoi Movie – Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai. The film, animated by Studio Deen, will debut on August 29th, 2014 on both DVD and Blu-ray in limited edition form. The Blu-ray is priced at 8,208 yen while the DVD is at 7,128 yen. The release will use a triple cover packaging to layer the characters and artwork with material by original artist Shungiku Nakamura while also including a new booklet. On disc extras included new interviews, Radio CD materials and more to be determined including commercial collections, awards material and more.
Based on the 2011 light novel by Miyako Fujisaki and Shungiku Nakamura, Kadokawa, the feature comes after the two seasons of the TV series that we had recently which gave us a few different intertwined stories boys-love romance that were pretty much all about the young men in the workplace arena rather than a highschool drama of sorts. That show won over a lot of fans as the property continues to do well and it’s one of the few and far between anime features of its type. No firm release date is set yet beyond a 2014 date, but it’s expected to be earlier in the year rather than later due to the previously solicited new box set for the TV series on Blu-ray being used as a promotional tool.
Plot concept: Takafumi Yokozawa works at the sales department of the publishing company Marukawa Shoten and is in love with the editor in chief since college but it doesn’t seem Yokozawa’s feelings will ever be returned but what will happen when publishing company Japan’s editor in chief takes an interest in him?
