I've had the pleasure of reading Vol. 1 & 4, and now find myself backing up to fill in the blanks. This is such a sweet, naive and innocent love story between a big burly, not so attractive teenager and a quie, cute petite girl. They are madly in "innocent" love with each other and in this volume are starting to learn what being boy/girl -friend is all about. Caring, respect, honesty and trust. This volume is quite episodic with some hilarious scenes especially involving Takeo but there is heart here too and it's just so sweet.

HASH(0x9f9c2f24) out of 5 stars A Simple, Innocent Love Story Nov. 4 2014
By RStringini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My Love Story continues to be one of the sweetest and most innocent manga I have ever read. While there are a few bits of mildly cheeky humor, the tone over all is light and playful, with healthy doses of humor and heart. It also lacks the more uncomfortable, forceful elements that can come with shojo romances, and it is nice to see a love story where the central couple respects each other.

There is no over the top dramatics, or any real trace of sex. Instead the story focuses on a group of people being there for each other, and a lesson that you can never judge someone just by their appearance. This is helped along by some very strong characters who come to life on the page thanks to some hilarious and expressive art. The story develops nicely, with the characters' bonds becoming even more clear, but it does this without resorting to unneeded melodrama, or tried and true shojo tropes. When something serious happens, it is not all sobs and screams. It's about people coming together to help each other, and care for each other. These characters honestly care for each other, and their bonds are the strength that holds My Love Story up, and helps it find its place in the crowded shojo market.

Seriously, if you are looking for something that is wholesome, sweet, funny and at the same time not afraid to occasionally pull at your heart strings, check out My Love Story. In a sea of tortured romances, sexual trysts and over the top fan service My Love Story is an innocent breath of fresh air that manages to be entertaining the entire time. I know I sound like a prude, and I swear I'm not. There is a time and place for more realistic, or dramatically intense stories, but there is also a time to just sit back and enjoy something that aims to just put a smile on your face, and make you feel a little warmer on the inside.

As an added bonus there are recipes between chapters for the many different treats that show up in the story.

~4/5

This series continues to be adorable and heartwarming. It again proves why the first volume caught me so well.

There’s some more bro-mance between Takeo and Sunakawa. I am still impressed by how good of friends they are to each other. Then there’s some minor drama between Takeo and Yamato. I do like that the drama isn't overdone, it’s not long-lasting or made a huge deal of. It’s subtle and sweet, even. Something happens to worry one of them, but they don’t simmer on it forever, and they’re still very close.

The chapter with Yamato’s friends is a good example. Yamato loves Takeo, she loves that he’s big like a bear, and she doesn’t see him as even slightly scary. She talks him up at the first chance, and doesn’t really understand how other people don’t see him like she does. It causes some upset when her friends don’t see what she does, but Takeo shows them what’s so great about him.

It’s adorable, how much she likes him, and how genuinely, innocently happy the two are together. And it’s sweet that they just want everyone, especially Sunakawa, to be as happy as they are.

There's also a chapter where something bad is going on in Sunakawa's life, but he doesn't say anything, and it puts Takeo in a bad spot, not wanting to overwhelm but still wanting to be there. I liked how it wrapped up.

I could just go on and on about this series, so I’m going to stop now. This series just makes me happy with how sweet it is, and I am really excited for the next volume.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, and Erik Jansen from MediaLab PR. Thank you so, so much!

HASH(0x9fdca48c) out of 5 stars Cute unexpected love story continues to be heartwarming Jan. 2 2015
By Johanna Draper Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Now that the massively masculine Takeo and the delightfully delicate Yamato have realized they like each other, as we saw in Book 1, we settle down to the confusion of dating.

The writer, Kazune Kawahara, has good ideas for short moments that convey how the characters are perceived by others. For instance, when they come across a woman struggling with a baby stroller on a flight of steps, Takeo immediately grabs the stroller and easily heads to the other end of the stairs. From the woman’s perspective, though, an overly large guy has loomed over her (and Aruko does a great job with the looming from a worm’s eye perspective and shading to increase Takeo’s monster look) and seized her child. Thankfully, the attractive Sunakawa is there to put her at ease and explain Takeo’s intentions.

It’s this conflict between appearance — Takeo looks like a gangster tough guy from an old movie in his suit — and intention that make up the light-hearted comedy that is so appealing in this series. After one of his (frequent) good deeds, sometimes people end up thanking Sunakawa, confusing beauty for good action. People can be shallow, in other words, and it’s that reminder that keeps the series from being sticky-sweet.

Takeo also tends to act without explanation or delay. Thankfully, he’s always doing the right thing, even if he does get misunderstood. That’s seen in one of the chapters here, as Yamato’s friends and Takeo’s friends have a social mixer. Yamato has been talking about how great her boyfriend is, but the other girls are shocked that Takeo is so much outside the norm. Sunakawa, jaded by how superficially others treat him, tells the truth: “Just because she’s nice doesn’t mean her friends are too. They might be friends because she’s so nice.” When a disaster threatens, though (with some dynamic action cartooning), Takeo saves the day, showing Yamato’s friends just how cool he can be. It’s an exaggerated series of events, but with emotional authenticity behind them.

In other chapters, Takeo and Yamato have to deal with temporary separation as Takeo helps out the judo team for a tournament and Takeo struggles to give Yamato a perfect birthday. That’s complicated by his desire to be there for his friend Sunakawa during a difficult time. Sunakawa has a valuable role in the couple’s relationship — he states explicitly what each is thinking to the other, nicely shortcutting the stereotypical kinds of misunderstandings that fuel a lot of other shojo manga.

Takeo and Yamato’s relationship can be laughable in its good-hearted simplicity, but the authors bring through an honesty of feeling that makes me want to cherish their naiveté instead of snarking or snickering at it. Everything is new to them because they’re in love. This kind of pure emotion is why I read romance comics, because in the real world, it would quickly be shot down and trampled. Here, though, I can enjoy how it felt to be that young. They’re adorable!

Between story chapters are recipes for the treats Yamato makes. They seem delicious, even if they’d need some tweaking to be workable for US ingredients. (Review originally posted at ComicsWorthReading.com.)

I bought this for my sister who fell for this manga after she read the first volume. I read a little of the first volume and it's funny, cute, and a little touching. I will continue to purchase them for my sister and myself until I can no longer do so~ hahaha
