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!

Yamato initially accepts that she has to move to Spain with her family, but her feelings for Takeo are so strong that she runs away from home! Takeo follows her with the intention of bringing her back, but what will he do when he faces a heartbroken Yamato? And just how will Takeo’s love story end?


And the series comes to a super sweet close.
Yamato and Takeo accept that she's moving away, and they accept having a long distance relationship. Everyone is surprised by her move, but they all believe they'll make it. Sunakawa tries to help by keeping Takeo distracted, and cheering him up.
But Takeo has Sunakawa. Yamato has her family, but she's struggling more. School is hard, she's not doing great, she misses Takeo, she can't understand anyone around her. It doesn't take much from Takeo to get her to admit this, though, which I liked. She's honest with him about it. Takeo freaks out in an awful way, though, and no one can understand him for it.
One of the best moments of this manga for sure, though, is when Sunakawa knocks some sense into Takeo. Literally. He needs it, and he understands why.
This all leads to a very sweet conclusion, which is no surprise.
I loved everything about this series. I hope we get more from these authors.
