For those who have been following the Spring 2015 anime simulcasts, the news is certainly most-welcome. Ore Monogatari!! has positioned itself to be one of the best anime of the season, with relatable main characters with their own flaws. The love comedy does well fleshing out the complications surrounding the unorthodox relationship between Takeo, a stern-faced luckless-with-girls high school student and Rinko, a pure-hearted girl whom he saves from a train groper and fell in love with him.

Ore Monogatari!! X Nisekoi crossover

Ore Monogatari won the award for Best Shoujo Manga at the 37th Kodansha Manga Awards and first place in both Kona Manga ga Sugoi! 2013 Awards - Women's Choice and Japanese manga news site Comic Natalie's First Manga Autumn 100 Awards. It also received a two-chapter crossover with Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi - False Love manga in both Weekly Shonen Jump and Bessatsu Margaret last year.
