By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on March 25 2015
Format: Paperback
I'm not rating this 5 stars because it is the best book in the world but more because it thoroughly entertained me, and I can honestly say I truly enjoyed this. And why would this merit 5 stars to me? Because I can not stand romantic shoujo, but there is nothing *not* to like in this quaint, adorable first volume to this series. There are no gimmicks, no cross-dressing, no vampires, nor do we have to wait 18 volumes for the star-crossed pair to tell each their feelings! For Takeo and Yamato it is love-at-first-sight. The glitch? Takeo isn't the kind of boy that girls usually go for, very tall, burly, square-jawed, large nose (and for comedic effect) overly large lips. The story is really cute and sweet. Takeo's friend is the exact type girls fall for but by contrast Takeo is always the gentleman and knows at heart how to treat a lady right; he just hasn't had a chance before. Really adorable story for romantics. I'm usually critical with shoujo but found this one a pure joy to read even quite open to continuing on with the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance story for people not into typical romance stories Aug. 16 2016
By Tansquid - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's tough to properly review a series of books without all the other reviews being, "It's as great as always." That being said, this series stays fantastic the whole way through. It's unique in the sense that the main character isn't "handsome" by typical standards, but as a person he's incredible. It's also unique in that I don't tend to like love stories or romance novels, but this one can hold my attention. Easily worth the money, but beware that if you buy one book, you'll probably end up buying all of them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for shojo lovers June 3 2016

Extremely cute! At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it but for the kindle price I was like why not? Glad I did! it is such a cute story and I will be buying more volumes for sure. Takeo may not have the bishonen looks but has a heart of gold which is what I always like to see in the love interest is that they're caring and not mean and nasty.

5.0 out of 5 stars This shoujo manga is amazing!! July 26 2014
By ShoujoManiac - Published on
Format: Paperback
My Love Story is one of the best shoujo manga I have ever read!! Takeo Gouda is not your typical bishounen protagonist with a charming personality, noooo, you have a macho man with a variety of funny facial expressions but a sweet, caring personality. His character basically says "Don't judge a book by its cover." And soon a girl named Rinko Yamato will soon find out. This manga has everything that a heart hungers for. Love, friendship, comedy, and trust. I especially love the friendship between Takeo and Sunakawa. Makoto Sunakawa, Takeo's best friend for more than 10 years, is always looking out for him. Even though he seems to be a cold person he really cares for Takeo, helping him out and also really admiring him too. It just shows how tight their friendship is. Just writing this makes me smile. It's a story that will never bring you down.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Heart July 16 2014
By RStringini - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I didn't know what to expect going into My Love Story, but I was blown away by how much I enjoyed this first volume. The story is sweet and funny. The characters are entertaining and relatable. The humor runs a little on the over the top side, but it also keeps the story moving at a quick pace, and Takeo makes for a great lead character. While this is a shojo series, the story is very accessible to both male and female readers, and while the back of the book shows a T rating, the first volume is very tame. Seriously, for something a little different you should check out My Love Story. It'll keep you smiling the whole way through.

(And for a similar series, just with two guys instead of a guy and a girl, check out His Favorite.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely recommend Sept. 12 2014
By Jude - Published on
Format: Paperback

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I wasn’t too sure what to expect with this volume, how fast it would move, or what the art style would be like. And I must say, that this volume was just plain cute. All around adorable, and very funny.

Takeo, the main character, is a big guy, who can easily intimidate people. But he’s actually the type who wears his heart on his sleeve. He falls for girls easily, and he really just wants to help people when he can. He’s a nice guy. His best friend, Sunakawa, is the good-looking guy that every girl wants to date. But he’s actually rather straight-faced, with little interest in girls and who wants to study.

And then Takeo saves Yamato from a pervert on the train, but when she tries to repay him and bake him goods, he thinks it means she likes Sunakawa, because all the girls he’s liked before have.

I wasn’t sure what the relationship between Takeo and Sunakawa would be, given that all the girls fall for Sunakawa. I was surprised to find that they are seriously just really good friends. Takeo admires Sunakawa; he’s really just his best friend—there are absolutely no hard feelings. And Sunakawa just wants Takeo to be happy as well. I also like how Sunakawa jokes around with Takeo, for instance by setting him up near the beginning of the book.

I was also surprised by Yamato. She is seriously just adorable. The way she runs after Takeo in one scene, and then how she tries to hint and flirt with him. I admire her courage, the way she goes after him, and the adorable way she succeeds. Her and Takeo are just super cute together.

The artwork was not quite as good as I was expecting (although still good, don't get me wrong), but the characters were. This was an adorable volume, and I really can’t wait to read more.

Also, I hadn't realized that there were going to be longer release dates between volumes in this series. I'm not surprised, since there aren't very many out in Japan, but that still kind of sucks. Now I'm just going to have to wait longer than I thought for the next volume.
