My Love Story!!: Complete Collection (2015/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: C+ Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: B+

Takeo Goda is literally a giant character and has always been seen as the 'man's man' as it were, but to girls, he is like a scary monster. His best friend is Suna, his next door neighbor and also the most handsome boy in school, but when he rescues Rinko Yamato from a molester on the train, he (and everyone else) can't hardly believe she wants to be his girlfriend. Has springtime finally come for Goda? This is the set-up for the new anime series My Love Story!!: Complete Collection (2015).

Because of Goda's giant physique, girls have always found him intimidating. Usually, girls end up falling for Goda's best friend Suna. But really, Goda is a good guy and a gentle giant with a kind heart. He uses his sturdy body (and almost supernatural strength) to support and protect his friends and all those he cares about. Suna has been Goda's best friend since they were kids and becomes his confidant in Goda's quest for love. Yamato, on the other hand, is the complete opposite of Goda, she is a petite, cute feminine girl who loves cooking. As their relationship grows what will become of Goda and Yamato and their fairytale-like romance?

This show is like a comical Beauty and and Beast story mixed with high school drama. The main appeal to the series was watching the various reactions of characters to each other, but especially how the main character can use brute force to solve (almost) any problem.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer on all episodes is consistent, but the animation is more overly simple than one would like, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mix, especially the Japanese version over the English one, is warm, rich, well-recorded and sounds very good. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
