The big lug with a heart of gold has finally found his voice!
Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks revealed the first cast member in its upcoming English dub for My Love Story!!. Andrew Love will take the lead role as gentle giant Takeo Goda.
Sentai published a 86-second teaser to announce the news:
My Love Story!! is based on Kazune Kawahara and Aruko’s manga of the same name. The series, which aired from April through September 2015, was helmed by Morio Asaka (Cardcaptor Sakura, Chihayafuru) at Madhouse. Kunihiko Hamada (Chihayafuru, Nana) provided character designs on the project, while Natsuko Takahashi (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Blue Drop) took charge of series composition.
Viz Media holds the domestic rights to the original manga series. The company describes the series 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!
