Bust just when everything seems too perfect to be true, sweet and sneaky Saitou pops up to cause a little broken-hearted mayhem. Will this face from the past succeed in tearing Nagai and Honda apart for good?
Close the Last Door teases and tempts with the story of a love triangle that refuses to topple! Nagai, Honda and Saitou love to push one another’s buttons in and out of the bedroom.

“Nagai is just your typical office guy… except that he’s had a secret crush on his coworker Saitou for ages. But with Saitou’s massive wedding just around the corner, Nagai realizes that it’s finally time to retire his illicit desire for the adorable young man. However, sly Honda has a few teasing tricks up his own sleeve… and once the beer starts flowing, there’s no telling where the night will end!

Hinako Takanaga just announced via twitter her plans on ending The Tyrant Falls in Love. Here are the numerous tweets compiled together as one complete message:
"Because I received so many questions if the series of "Bokun" ends by vol.7, here is my answer below. Actually, I would say this is the final story for this series. The reason for anouncing this so sudden is that even though I was planning to end off the series at first, I always get off the track while making a story and wasn't sure myself if it ends or not. Although, the series ends this time, I still have some additional episodes for "Bokun" that I'm planning to make a one-shot, or some short stories from now on. Therefore, please keep supporting me and also this "Bokun" series as so far. At last, I always appreciate for your messages from foreign countries. Thank you so much. Lots of love, Hinako Takanaga"
So although she stated in her interview with me that it would continue past volume 7,
it appears it will not be (KudouUsagi clarified in comments below that based on how Sensei's latest arc is going, it should be going through 8 volumes and then the extra stories after that).
EDIT: Here is a little more explanation that was posted on her LiveJournal Community.
Rightstuf and Nozomi Entertainment are doing an encore presentation of season 2 of Junjo Romantica! Episodes 1 through 4 are available now on their YouTube channel for the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. An additional two episodes will be available each week thereafter until episode 12. Keep in mind that these episodes are available for a limited time so go watch them now.
Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is now airing in Japan and Crunchyroll has started its simulcast today for premium members. Those without a Crunchyroll membership can see it air on April 15th. I just finished watching episode one and I'm already hooked. Started a little slow and then bam!.. laughing out loud. It definitely looks just like Junjo including the characters and there's even a 'guest' appearance by a Junjo character but only in the background. People have said Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is a little more realistic in comparison and although it's only episode one, I can already see some of that shining through. I still love Junjo so it's going to take a lot to win me over but this episode was a good start.
Awesome news for yaoi fans! Crunchyroll has announced that they will be simulcasting Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi after it starts to air in Japan, which is April 8th. They have not released any details regarding how soon after but I would imagine about a week. What do you think? Anyway, the simulcast will be available for the following countries/regions: North America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, Middle East, Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia. Here's the official Sekai-ichi Facebook page, which is mostly in English.
