Nisekoi Review

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.

Nisekoi Episode 18&19- Swapping Focus

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.

Nisekoi Episode 17- Traditional wear galore

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.

Nisekoi Episode 14- Wife Material Reporting In

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

Nisekoi Episode 8: More Tsugumi!

So the announcement says that Nisekoi will have 20 episodes, fun fun fun.

The harem adds one more to its roster and now we get a bit more development with a “plot” point at the very end. I’ll tell you all right now that even after the events of this episode and the rest to come, know that even after 100+ chapters, we still have no idea which key is the one for Raku’s necklace. So don’t get your hopes up.

But enough of that, let’s just get to talking about the reverse trap

Nisekoi Episode 7: Totsuka Saika is a real girl

Chalk up one more member into the growing love comedy harem.

Okay so I really did end up catching up to the manga and I’ll just say there isn’t really anything “big” that happens thus far. It would be unwise for the author to focus on just one girl since that would kill sales and alienate a bunch of fans that root for their favorite character. I don’t want make myself seem like some analysists but if anything, I’ll just say pull a Ichigo 100 if one person has to win it.

Anyways, let’s just talk about that new member shall we?

Nisekoi Episode 5: The School Swimsuit Episode

I ask myself, why aren’t I reading the manga for this? I just know I will definitely recommend it to the people enjoying the anime right now. Speaking of the manga, the length of it definitely suggests that Onodera isn’t “that” girl. Hell, I think it even turned to harem, which might either be a good thing or bad thing depending on who you are.

But manga reviewing ain’t what I’m here for. If anything, I’ll give it my own judgement if I ever get impatient and get around to it. But moving on.
