The official website for the anime adaptation of Shungiku Nakamura’s boys-love manga series Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi – World’s Greatest First Love posted a 20-second first PV for its upcoming all-new episode „Propose Chapter,“ along with four new key visuals introducing its main couples.
The clip also features the new episode’s theme song „Mirai mo Kimi no Te no nakade“ (I will be in your hand in the future as well) performed by 39-year-old anison singer Shuhei Kita, who has worked on all of the theme songs for the previous Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi anime series since the first TV anime in 2011. The song’s CD single will be avilable on February 19, 2020, simultaneously with the 14-song new album from the series, „Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi Collector’s Vocal Album.“
As the fifth anniversary project for Kadokawa Shoten’s boys love-themed magazine Emerald, in which the manga has been serialized, the new anime episode is set be released in theaters across Japan, including EJ Anime Theater Shinjukju and Grand Cinema Sunshine in Tokyo, on February 21, 2020. In place of all of the previous installment’s Chiaki Kon, Tomoya Takahashi (Yo-kai Watch episode director) newly serves as director at Studio Deen under the supervision of Kon.
