They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that's true, then this cover picture is worth a thousand squees! SuBLime is proud to announce that we have acquired the English-language rights for all eight volumes of Shungiku Nakamura's famed Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi! 


Our English title will be The World's Greatest First Love: The Case of Ritsu Onodera, and we will release volume one in print February 2015 (there are currently no digital rights available for this title). Subsequent releases will be every other month thereafter (bimonthly). 


Synopsis: "Tired of accusations that family connections got him his current position, Ritsu Onodera quits his job as an editor at his father's company and transfers to Marukawa Publishing. Once there, he is assigned to the shojo manga editorial department—something he has no interest in and no experience with! Having sworn he'd never fall in love again, the last thing he wants to do is work on love stories. To make matters worse, it turns out that his overbearing boss, Masamune Takano, is actually his first love from high school!"


It's been a long time coming for us yaoi fans, but I think it's been worth the wait! Feel free to leave your thoughts/questions below. We'd love to hear what you think. :-)
