My Love Story!! Gets Side Story Chapter in September
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The September issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine revealed on Friday that Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's romantic comedy shōjo manga series My Love Story!! (Ore Monogatari!!) manga will get a side story chapter in the magazine's next issue on September 13. The new chapter will have a color opening page and will have 60 pages. The official Twitter account for Bessatsu Margaret showed a picture of the announcement.
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. The manga ended in July 2016.
Viz Media published all 13 volumes of 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!
A television anime of My Love Story!! debuted in April 2015, and a live-action film starring Ryohei Suzuki and Mei Nagano opened in October 2015. Sentai Filmworks released the anime series on home video with an English dub.
