The 20 episode ride is over but the amusement is still open, I hear they added a FIFTH rollercoaster.
Only now do I realize that the absurdly screwed up version of Romeo and Juliet basically sums up the entire series. Anyways, first series review of the Spring season while others have 3-4 weeks to finish up. I’d think most people would catch my impression of the series after 20 weeks of coverage but I might as well take this chance to talk about the manga’s status as well.
So here we go folks, it’s Nisekoi’s time to step to the plate.

So if the school swimsuit episode didn’t do enough for you, we get ourselves a full beach episode with more revealing swimsuits. Even in the absence of my internet, it seems I haven’t missed too much regarding Nisekoi in both anime and manga. If anything, the lock is still relevant again but like hell it’s going to stop anytime soon. Other than the beach episode, they actually got to the arc I was thinking they wouldn’t get to. The ending for the anime series basically steps into the bounds where a character outlook changes so if anything, I said too much already.
I’m surprised is all. I don’t have the manga to anime chapter-episode match up at the moment but I damn well remember this part being later. Oh well.
Let’s just cover this.

From what I’m hearing, the next episode is going to involve everyone taking a trip and the antics that follow group outings. No judgement here but like I said, I wouldn’t be surprised if second season hits the corner. On the manga scene, Golden Week takes its toll and we not no new chapter. The previous chapter however did hint at something but I doubt we’ll have any sort of closer soon. God help me to prove me wrong cause the series isn’t bad but it can quickly become worse if this drags on even more.
3 weeks left to see what the fate of the anime series holds. We had Marika and Ondera being focused on for a bit so now we move back to the bigger pantheon of characters.

So I’m basically telling all of you anime-only people what’s going on with the manga every week. The elusive key returns as a plot device and surprise, the new girl happens to be involved in all of the “we met eachother in the past” thing. Jesus christ, everyone in this series must have some memory problems. How can they forget such an important topic? Especially when it might involve polygamy?
Anyways, as if to counter the amount of Marika-moe we got, Onodera hits me with a left-hook from left-field as we get a pure Ondera episode today.
So ignoring the fangasming going on in my Skype call with one of my friends, let’s get this show on the road.

More antics with Marika. They’ve got 5 episodes to get a major arc in to finish strong and like I said before, I don’t remember the manga enough to recall anything big after Marika’s introduction. I don’t plan on looking for myself since the manga is seriously trying to introduce a new heroine and bring back the key+lock storyline I forgot about it.
On other news, a rather beloved manga ended this week. TWGOK officially ended with (highlight to see) Chihiro. I personally stopped reading during the Bite The Dust/Groundhog Day sequence with young Keima repeating days so I can’t really talk about it fully. Only reason I’m mentioning this is that I wonder if Nisekoi is actually going to HAVE an end at this point…Who the hell introduces another girl 110+ chapters in? Watch when they go so far as to introduce a Korean gangster girl to the chaos. Doubtful joke because us Koreans will probably take offense if any generalizations are made about us (its happened before).
Enough complaining though. We got loads of Marika being moe so get hype.
Continue reading Nisekoi Episode 15- Don’t be a fool to think these keys will have any relevance in the next 70 chapters
Well she’s finally here.
She sure has some initiative for a character who had 20 minutes of screentime. Then again, that’s not really going to matter in the manga because we still got a lot of chapters to go. Hell I think they introduced yet another tease for Raku in form of his dad’s younger girlfriend who plans to live at his house. Cohabitation antics galore. (She’s their new homeroom teacher no less)
It’s not really a spoiler since they just reminded me that the lock is still relevant.
That aside, let’s dig in.
Warning: Loads of Marika ahead

Series were getting dropped like flies so it really wasn’t worth the post. Allow me to just very quickly summarize what’s going on for this season and why it’s going to be like it is.
Let’s get the easier stuff out of the way
- Jojo is being watched. There was not any doubt over this.
- DAL is being watched for the sole reason of the artist behind the series.
- Nisekoi’s manga is getting worse with each chapter but the anime is something that I’ve already committed to watching.
- Mahouka is being watched so I can poke fun at Light FOREVER.
I’m not going to count the new DAL episode because it was an anime original to give retrospect to what transpired in the first season. No need for me to repeat what they’re explaining.
Now let’s get to the fun part.
