I recently watched a Japanese movie called Ore Monogatari!!, which translates into English: My Love Story!!

The main character, Takeo Gouda is often misunderstood by his big stature, but has a big heart to helping anyone in trouble. He has gain the respect of the male students at his school.

That is until he saves the female protagonist, Rinko Yamato, from being molested and the two of them fall in love at first sight.
