Viz continues it’s amazing manga announcements with the latest manga from the creator of High School Debut, My Love Story!!


Takeo Goda is a giant guy with a giant heart. Too bad he’s always in the shadow of his attractive 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 and his life changes forever. Takeo can hardly believe it when he crosses paths with Yamato again, and he finds himself falling in love with her… But with handsome Sunakawa around, does Takeo even stand a chance?

I love a good underdog story. That character who just can’t catch a break and has the odds stacked against them, I cant get enough of it. Takeo is the perfect example of the common underdog. Big, gentle and unlucky in love. Sure sounds like he’s going on my favorite list. I’m sure Takeo’s relationship with the popular and attractive best friend along with the pretty little love interest, will keep this manga exciting!

“My Love Story!! is a wonderful laugh-out-loud comedy sure to delight any reader that has ever rooted for, or been, the underdog in a relationship,” says Amy Yu, Editor. “This is a different type of shojo story, told from the standpoint of the sweet but blundering main male character, Takeo. We invite fans to complement their summer manga reading with this fun, new romantic comedy from Shojo Beat!”

Viz Media, the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, brings us Kazune Kawahara’s newest manga. July 1st, My Love Story!! will be available in print and digital editions with volumes of the series are scheduled to be published four times a year. Look out for Takeo and his adventures in love in My Love Story!! and get ready to root for one sweet underdog!
