High school student Takeo Gouda has an intimidating physique that often scares strangers away. Despite his looks, he is appreciated for his kind and manly nature, making him well liked and respected among those who truly know him. However, he has had no luck with romance. Instead, every girl he likes always ends up taking interest in his best friend—the quiet and handsome Makoto Sunakawa.

One day, Takeo falls in love with the cute and petite Rinko Yamato after saving her from an unpleasant situation. Little does he know, Rinko fell in love with him too! Oblivious, Takeo believes that Yamato is interested in Sunakawa, so soft-hearted Takeo decides to help bring the two together, even if he has to abandon his love story.

Ore Monogatari is desperately sincere in its romance to the point of idealism. Its for that very same reason, though, that I kind of love it? The overly schmaltzy back and forth between Takeo and Yamato can border on the tired side in those first ten chapters, I’ll admit – But the moment conflicts that potentially put their relationship on the rocks (at least from the characters perspective) start to involve themselves in the form of short storylines, the depth of the series really starts to show it’s hand and reading through becomes that much more engaging.

In many many ways Takeo is the perfect ...

Sweet....sometimes too sweet but isn't that a hallmark of such a series. if it wasn't for its moments of character introspection and development it would have been like any other run-of-mill shoujo manga.

other than the main relationship between Takeo and Rinko, the one that always captivated me was that of Takeo and Makoto. one will wish to have a friend like them in real life yet one must realize too that one needs to be like them to have that privilege.
where one would find a flaw in the series is towards the latter half one can see the story stalling and various subplots seemingly falling ...

Sincerely, one of the best romance series I read, it has comedy, some drama here and there, and tons of moments to tug your heart on a squezee from the absolute cuteness of the situation.

I remember I caught the anime first and totally fell in love with Takeo. I have a soft spot for gentle characters and HUGE characters, so Takeo Gouda easily became my favorite, with flaws and all, that made me love him more, and after finishing the anime, I HAD to finish this story in the manga, and got it on hold a couple of years 'cause the manga app I had ...
