Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story!!) is a shoujo romance manga series written by Kazune Kawahara, known for Koukou Debut, and illustrated by Aruko, who worked with Kawahara on many occasions. The series originally began as a one hundred page one shot in Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret magazine in October 2011 before being serialized as a full series in May 2012. To date a total of 7 compiled volumes have been released, with the latest releasing in Japan on November 13th. A two chapter crossover with Naoshi Komi’s Nisekoi manga was produced in their respective magazines last year.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Tsuyoshi Takeo is a freshman in high school. (Both estimates) Weight: 120kg, Height: 2 meters. He spends his days peacefully with his super-popular-with-girls, yet insensitive childhood friend, Sunagawa. One morning, on the train to school, Takeo saves a girl, Yamato, from being molested by a pervert. Could this be the beginning of spring for Takeo?
The Ore Monogatari!! anime will be airing from April 9th at 1:29am JST in the Spring 2015 anime season on NTV. The anime will go on for a total of 24 episodes spanning two consecutive seasons. Additional information about the series will release soon.
