My Love Story/Ore Monogatari!! Anime's Spring Debut, Visual Unveiled
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
People involved in the My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari!!) television anime revealed that this anime based on Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's original manga will premiere on NTV and its affiliates next spring. The staff also released a key visual for the anime series. The January 2015 issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine will announce more details when it ships on December 13.
Viz Media is publishing the shōjo romantic comedy manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Takeo Gōda is a giant guy with a giant heart. Too bad the girls don't want him! (They want his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa.) Used to being on the sidelines, Takeo simply stands tall and accepts his fate. But one day when he saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his (love!) life suddenly takes an incredible turn!
Kawahara first debuted the original 100-page version of the story in an issue of Bessatsu Margaret Sister in October 2011, but the manga then returned in Bessatsu Margaret as a serialized work. Shueisha is published the seventh compiled book volume last month, and Viz is publishing the third volume in January.
The series won Best Shojo Manga at the 37th Kodansha Manga Awards last year. It also received a two-chapter crossover with Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi: False Love manga in both Weekly Shonen Jump and Bessatsu Margaret last year. (Viz published the "boys' side" chapter in its version of Weekly Shonen Jump.)
Kawahara's other manga include High School Debut, which Viz also publishes in North America. JManga announced Aruko's Yasuko and Kenji manga before it stopped service.
