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.

everything from the first chapter got me hooked until the last. it was a nice closure though wanting for more it kinds of comfort you knowing that those three wonderful characters will be fine.

first and foremost the lack of toxic masculinity despite the very very masculine mc is what got me, the plot revolves on how he respects his girlfriend that he almost tiptoes around his own girlfriend but despite that this manga shows the most important thing about relationships: COMMUNICATION.

May it be an old relationship or a very very new one, as long as you communicate it will be okay.

and speaking of relationships, nothing ...

So, I randomly watched the anime and enjoyed it so much I needed more... I'll say something similar to what I said about the anime. This isn't for everyone. You won't find much suspense or drama here, in the way that the genre is normally known for. That being said, this is a wonderful story and as a hopeless romantic, I am just fucking thrilled. I've never seen a story like this anywhere in this medium. Romance storys generally are dangled in front of the viewer with the cathartic coupling occurring at the very end or even not at ...

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 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 ...
