A few days ago, in a burst of nostalgia, I decided to begin watching anime again. I was in the mood for something light-hearted and funny, and after reading a few reviews, decided to settle on this one: Ore Monogatari (My Love Story). It was exactly what I was looking for!
The protagonist, Gouda Takeo (剛田 猛男 ), is a first year high school student. He is very tall, muscular, unconventional-looking, and extremely well-liked by the boys in his school. He however does not seem to have much luck with girls, since all the girls he likes only have eyes for his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa Makoto ( 砂川 誠 ). One day through a series of events, he meets and falls for Yamato Rinko (大和 凛子), who, to his great surprise, likes him back! What follows is a love story that is both hilarious and incredibly sweet. 🙂
