Sorry I'm late, but I wanted to test the ride a bit longer.

Three episodes in, and so far, Episode Three still pulls me into whatever the holy hell is going on back there. There was also a lot of views of its page on Screened (either that or you all visited me there. In that case, thank you. <3) Anyway, some spoilers for Episode Three are present here, so I suggest you get caught up from here on (or just read it if you are one of the people that just aren't interested in seeing the series. In that case, you're really missing out, especially since there's a interesting new character in the mix. :[ )

Synopsis (via Takashichea)

Y arrives to Camphorwood village to start on the Human Monument project, but she gets totally sidetracked and kick starts a manga movement starting with some Yaoi titles.

Good

  • Y driving the Mediator mad as balls makes up for some good humor.
  • I thought the Fujoshi (female yaoi manga fan) fiasco that had erupted in Camphorwood managed to make things even funnier.
  • The ending of this episode is the biggest surprise from the Fairies so far.

Bad

  • Some of the terms that are used might not be understandable for others that are new to anime.
  • Not much fairy appearances. (They always seem to cheer me up at some point).

Weird

  • The blank space scene in the beginning was puzzling, but not as much as the conclusion was.

Next week, things are only going to get weirder from here on. I solely blame Y on that one.

Highlights

She definitely won't un-see that image anytime soon (Neither will we) -_-;

ARE YOU READY VICERS!? I certainly am! Keep the brain bleach close by boys, and fujoshi are going to get a kick outta this. This Weird or What is as suggested by Takashichea. Today we're going to cover Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi. You're going to need a bit of background information for this one, so lets get to it. SiH is set in the same 'universe' as another yaoi and anime called Junjou Romantica. That'll explain why there might be some JR references. Junjou is about a writer ( Usami) and a student ( Misaki) who fall in love, and the writer secretly start writing smut about their own sexual relationship. Their relationship start off with... sexual harassment. So does Ritsu and Takano's. 
 Yes. This is as cute as it looks.

Anyways, now that you know a little back story here, you'll be able to fully immerse yourself in this yaoi review! Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi starts off with the back story of our hommie Ritsu Onodera. He's our resident uke. Basically once upon a time he goes to school, and falls in love with his sempai. He confesses to his sempai, then there's some implied sex. Sorry, you don't really get to see anything. Then, a few years later, Ritsu is hired as... get ready... a shojo manga editor. Of course there's a little wtf moment, and he meets the rest of the editing team, which happens to be entirely male. There he meets Masamune Takano, his high school (or university.. it's not clear) sweetheart.

 Well, I must say that the plot is pretty similar to Junjou Romantica, but I have a confession to make. I hate JR. Mainly because Usami and the other couples pissed me off. Even though SiH has a fairly similar set up with the obvious uke/seme (bottom/top) thing going on, I like the idea that we're avoiding rape. It's nice to have a yaoi where the spark that lights the fire isn't rape. You'd be surprised how common a theme that is. I thought it was quite funny how Ritsu's previous job was working with Usami from Junjou. I laughed a little too loud during his flashback. But it's nice to see that the creators have a sense of humour.
  
 Overall this is just adorable

SiH was actually pretty tame, yaoi wise. The only thing you really get yaoi wise is some flashback kissing, and a rather hilarious sexual harassment kiss. Yes. Sexual harassment. It's work... right? I mean, what ever pays the bills, and makes that shojo manga epicly romantic. Basically, for the first episode, I'm going to call it shounen-ai, not really yaoi because yaoi=sex. I loved the way that the creators played off of the yaoi and shojo stereotypes. It's quite ironic when Ritsu's commenting on why "everything is all sparkly" during a kiss scene in the shojo manga. The creators seemed to have a lot of fun. What was also pretty funny was the whole 'cycle' with the editors. It's like their own little menstrual cycle... except with shojo manga and less blood. Overall the humour was quite clever and despite Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi's primary demographic, I think everyone will have at least something to enjoy. I just really appreciated the fun tone of this anime, and the little quips, references, and forth-wall poking.
 
The animation was good. Usually yaoi and shounen-ai anime have awful animation budgets and everything is just... uck... *cough*TogainuNoChi*cough* but the animation was pretty smooth. I still have a bone to pick (heh) with the art style in SiH. It's the same as Junjou Romantica, and I really wasn't a fan of it. THE PROPORTIONS. But at least the humour and the story makes up for the disproportionate lips.  
 
Oh... and on an unrelated note: Katsuyuki Konishi voices Takano. If that name means nothing to you, he's the same guy that voices Kamina in Gurren Lagann, Laxus Dreyar in Fairy Tail, Demon Eyes Kyo, and Ash's Snorlax in Pokemon. Never gunna look at them the same way... are you? I was also really happy to know he was Kiriwar in Togainu No Chi. <3

I actually recommend everyone to give the first episode a try. It's quite cute, and quite funny. No sex, and overall tame for a yaoi. I can't vouch for later episodes, though. Anyways, give it a watch, and let me know what you think below. :D
 
EDIT:
Takashichea did a summary here. Read it if you're a bit scared to watch the anime. :P

Fully titled: Tits N' Ass, but I don't want to be weeded out as mature content on Youtube.

This episode I'm answering Sotyfan16's question on fanservice and my opinions. I had to do this in a rush, so it's not the best, but HAY you guys'll get two this week so yay!! Hope you enjoy, and send your Q&A in any format (AV, youtube, Twitter, Tumblr) and I'll answer them in the upcoming two episodes.

Sorry! I forgot to ask this in the video so.... What's your opinion on fanservice?

A lot of people seem to be uncommon with the terminology and lingo of yaoi fangirls. That is why I will make this mini vocab list so you know what you're getting into before you find yourself in something..... interesting. Let's go!!
  • Yaoi - Encompasses every kind of male/male relationship, although generally leans towards the more sexual side of the scale.
  • BL - AKA Boy's Love. A term used for manga/anime/fanfiction with male/male sexual relationships.
  • Shonen-Ai - AKA Boy's Love (also), although this term is used to refer to non-sexual male/male romantic relationships.
  • Fandom - Commonly used all over the anime world. Fandom just means everything to do with the fans. AKA Fanbase
  • Pairing - Simply a couple.
  • Cannon - Official to the series.
  • Ship - 'to ship' is a verb which means to support a certain pairing of characters.
  • Crack Couple/Crack Pairing - A pairing that is shipped, but will never officially happen because it it either A) Near impossible B) A cross over couple or C) Just a bad idea.
  • 'X' - Often between two character names, there may be an 'X' this means that they are referring to the two characters mentioned as a couple. I.e. SasukeXSakura. Note: the 'X' may be replaced with a '/'
  • Slash - A fan-fiction of any sort that pairs two male or two female characters.
  • Doujinshi - A fan-fiction, but in the form of a published mini-manga or comic. Commonly found in the yaoi fandom.
  • Lemon - A fan-fiction depicting explicit sexual relations between two fictional characters.
  • Bara - Anime/manga with extreme sexual acts between big, hairy, and burly men. Intended for gay male readers.
<I'll add more when I remember some stuff. If you want me to define a term, lemmie know in the comment section!!>
