VIZ Media’s Shojo Beat Imprint Is Releasing the My Love Story!! Manga

VIZ Media has announced that the company’s Shojo Beat imprint will be releasing the first volume of the My Love Story!! manga series on July 1, 2014.

The new release, written by the author of the bestselling manga High School Debut, is rated “T” for Teens and will carry a print MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. Future volumes of the continuing series are scheduled to be published four times a year.

A digital version also will launch on July 1, 2014 for $6.99 (USD/CAN) on and through the VIZ Manga app for the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Android-powered smart phones, as well as for the NOOK, Kobo, Kindle, iBooks and Google Play stores.

In My Love Story!!, Takeo Goda is a giant guy with a giant heart. Too bad the girls don’t want him. (They always go for his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa.) Used to being on the sidelines, Takeo simply stands tall and accepts his fate. But one day when he saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his (love) life suddenly takes an incredible turn. Takeo can hardly believe it when he crosses paths with Yamato again, and he finds himself falling in love with her. But with handsome Sunakawa around, does Takeo even stand a chance?

Amy Yu, Editor, says, “My Love Story!! is a wonderful laugh-out-loud comedy sure to delight any reader that has ever rooted for, or been, the underdog in a relationship. This is a different type of shojo story, told from the standpoint of the sweet but blundering main male character, Takeo. We invite fans to complement their summer manga reading with this fun, new romantic comedy from Shojo Beat!”
