I guess it's probably not too hard to see why this particular manga caught my eye, but upon further investigation I found that the 'big girls' of the title does not refer to their chest regions but to their statures generally. The main character, Tachibana Souta, is a fairly normal schoolboy except he's a bit on the short side. This is something he finds mighty irksome, especially in light of the fact that his 'big' sister, Kaoru, is a tremendously lofty six-and-a-half foot! Putting this considerable height to her advantage, she is one of six members of her college's volleyball team. Unfortunately, their manager is in hospital long-term, recuperating from an illness, so who do they rope into becoming their stand-in manager? Yes that's right - Souta! Of course, what they call 'manager' ends up meaning 'lackey', but it's not all bad as he also finds himself surrounded by his sister's equally lofty, and not-aethetically-unpleasant teammates, all of whom, in a stunningly unexpected plot-twist, find Souta completely irresistable!
With these being the only main characters, you'll probably not be shocked to hear that DYLTG is a harem comedy. That's good though as most of my favourite animes are usually comedies and many of those are harem comedies which can be great when done well. This is the first non-animated example I've tried and, much like the previous manga I looked at, it's a 'borderline hentai' title. There is also little in the way of story here - there isn't much actual volleyball played considering it's based around a volleyball team, for example - but for some reason I enjoyed it a hell of a lot more than my last manga. Or I have been enjoying it, I should say, as it seems to be ongoing in a slightly intermittent fashion.
