“My Love Story” fans rejoice as the beloved story of Takeo and Yamato is coming to the big screen.
The only question is, can they find a big enough actor to play Takeo.
Today it was announced that the “Ore Monogatari” manga and anime series is being adapted into a live action movie.
The news comes from Shoujo manga magazine “Bessatsu Margaret” (via Crunchyroll).
The cast for the film will be revealed when the July issue hits stands June 13.
So far, fans have expressed much excitement for a “My Love Story” live action movie.
“The persona of manliness in real life? This should be pretty awesome,” exclaimed Ninjajake12 on Crunchyroll .
While some fans were excited, others were concerned about who would be cast as the massive Takeo-kun.
“I can’t imagine who they would get to play Takeo.
The tallest Japanese actor I know is Matsuyama Kenichi, but he’s not overly gigantic.
I guess they’ll have to go with a really short girl to make up the difference,” commented Infernoshadow211.
According to Anime News Network , the “Ore Monogatari” anime adaptation was recently licensed by Sentai Filmworks.
Meanwhile, Viz Media is currently publishing the original manga by Kazune Kawahara.
The anime adaptation of “My Love Story” began streaming this spring anime season.
The main Japanese voice cast includes Takuya Eguchi, Megumi Han, and Nobunaga Shimazaki.
Studio Madhouse is handling the animation production with Morio Asaka directing.
Natsuko Takahashi is in charge of the series scripts.
For those who are not familiar with the series, Viz Media describes “My Love Story” as follows: “Takeo Gōda is a giant guy with a giant heart.
Too bad the girls don’t want him! (They want 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!”
