Raku Ichijou is an average high school student. He also happens to be the sole heir to the head of a Yakuza Family called the Shuei-gumi. Ten years ago, Raku made a promise... a secret promise with a girl he met. They promised one another that they will "get married when they reunite." Since then, Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him.

Then one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku's class. Their chemistry was more than off. There was not a moment where they were not fighting. But by a weird turn of events, Raku and Chitoge agree to become fake lovers. Although his heart is really interested in his classmate Kosaki Onodera, Raku must continue pretending to be Chitoge's boyfriend.

Nisekoi is an adaptation from a manga of the same name, which I have read all 117 chapters that have been released so far. It is still publishing, so I can only wait for more. There are 13 episodes as of now that I have seen, and more are coming. For those who just want to know whether to watch or not, I will lay that to rest now: WATCH IT. Anyways, formalities aside, let's get into it.

The story isn't something unusual, but it also isn't an overly clichéd idea either. While it may lack complete originality, it does its job perfectly. read more

So after reading around 64 chapters of the manga and watching more than half of the episodes of the anime, I can safely step into the territory of "reviewing" this show in a sense as what to expect when new viewers want to try this show out. This might change in the future but as of now and probably by the end of the season my impression won't change regarding the show since most of the manga that I have read will be covered in the anime and nothing beyond that, which is good cause I really enjoy the manga.

To begin, I started reading the read more

Romantic comedies with good character developments. It has a good mix of romance, drama and comedy that just makes sense.

It also has this 'who will he truly end up with?' feel, but more so in Nisekoi.
They both have that same trippy style (Bakemonogatari's is more pronounced) like scene cutting, slow motion shots, soft color backgrounds, off colored objects (like blue desks or green background characters)...
Basically I watched Nisekoi for maybe 5 minutes before I asked, "Was this made by the same guy that made Bakemonogatari?"
