posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
This year's July issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Monday that Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's romantic comedy shōjo manga series My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari!!) will end in the magazine's August issue on July 13 with a 100-page final chapter. The final chapter will also have a center color page.
Takaaki Imai, the editor-in-chief of Bessatsu Margaret, had said in an interview in January that the manga was approaching its climax.
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 published the 12th compiled book volume of the manga (pictured right) on May 25. The series won Best Shojo Manga at the 37th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2013.
Viz Media is publishing the 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!
Viz Media published the eighth volume in English on April 5.
A television anime of My Love Story!! debuted in April 2015, and a live-action film starring Ryohei Suzuki and Mei Nagano opened on October 31. Sentai Filmworks will release the anime series on home video with an English dub.
