Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi 03: There’s No Way The Third Party Can Be This Awesome
A second foul-mouthed, hard-assed male character?
It’s as if AIC is forcing me to confront my desperately repressed homosexual inclinations.
His name is Yokozawa Takafumi, and he is to business-suited men what Masamune is to eccentric editors.
That is to say, he is just as arrogant and assertive and awesome as Masamune is. And apparently, just as much of a troll, too.
Oh God I was watching this with the dumbest grin on my face.
I may have been squeeing. I don’t know for sure.
They were talking about kittens.
That’s right. Takafumi is just as manly yet just as emotionally-sensitive (in his own business-suited way) as Masamune.
Not that I’m saying anything, but if I was caught between those two and was propositioned for a homosexual threesome, I don’t think I’d be able to resist. Not for long, anyway.
But there is still one aspect of their characters in which Masamune is decidedly superior…
Art-shifted Masamune is stupidly cute.
He is the possibly the cutest foul-mouthed anime character I’ve ever encountered.
Well, until AIC decides to make Hoshikuzu Uicchi Meruru with omake behind-the-scenes footage of Kanako swearing at her handlers, that is.
Ritsu, on his part, is very much playing the jilted estranged spouse.
The irrational type who wouldn’t get into the same elevator as their ex-lover.
The overreacting type who insists on faxing documents to his ex-lover who lives next door.
The impractical type who would rather jam a massive stack of said documents through the puny mail slot than knock, wait for the door to open, then hurl the stack into his ex-lover’s face before comically running back into his apartment.
These episodic kissing scenes are going more and more overboard.
At the rate we’re going, I’m expecting a threesome mid-series and a full blown sex party involving ostriches, lace stockings and comically oversized candles by the final episode.
Looks like that threesome’s going to happen sooner than expected.
It’s episode 3 and Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi is going strong. The introduction of Takafumi was a surprise, but a pleasant one.
It certainly brings up many intriguing questions, such as: “How will Masamune attempt to explain his prior relationship to Ritsu?” and “How will Masamune explain his prior relationship toTakafumi?”
Of course, the most important question, as the denizens of various anime forums agree, is:
“When Takafumi and Masamune have sex, who is the Seme?”
A most profound query, to be sure. The road to the answer will most likely be a twisted, disheartening one, and the journey’s end will no doubt be cause for some measure of weeping and gnashing of teeth…
Unless of course Masamune and Takafumi swap roles each time. -shudders with off-putting ill-constrained emotion-
Unfortunately, there’s nothing that hints of sweaty three men action in the teasers.
Facemask-girl (who is probably a mangaka) doesn’t look promising, but Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi hasn’t let me down yet.
Omake: (Since I took the screenshot and have no idea where to put it)
