Goodreads Synopsis:

A gentle giant with a heart of gold finally stops being a love underdog in this hilarious romantic comedy!

Takeo Goda 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!

Lately, Yamato has been making Takeo’s heart race more than usual, so Takeo tries to train himself to be more stoic. But when their respective schools take them on a trip to Hokkaido, Takeo and Yamato keep getting thrown into close contact! Looks like Takeo is in for a rough challenge…


These two are literally just the cutest.
The classes go on their school trips. Takeo is freaking out about wanting too much from Yamato, whereas she finds it flattering that he wants more. Seeing them finally talk about it is just adorable. Things don't get very intimate or anything, but seeing them talk so openly is so nice. Their mature attitudes are much appreciated.
After that, Yamato decides that she wants to get stronger; she wants to be able to take care of herself, given how strong Takeo is always catching her. Finding this out, Takeo offers to train her. He's super harsh, and it's super cute seeing how much she loves it. She loves how he yells at her, and she works hard to get better, too. I like that she doesn't want him to go easy on her, and so he doesn't. They're seriously perfect together.
The last chapter shows a guy moving in on Sunakawa, and I'm intrigued. Sunakawa doesn't seem the type to be easily mislead, but it's weird how he's acting around Takeo.
This series is utterly cute. I love it.
