There's Nisekoi, and then there's Nisekoi taken too far, otherwise known as Kakkou no Iinazuke.
I just don't believe this anime will reach any kind of high-quality writing as it goes on, it's just a prolonged romance between two characters who are pretty much going to fall for each other at the end of it all (would be wild if that doesn't happen tho ngl).
Characters aren't even charismatic or true to themselves. The clever guy here managed to get checkmated by some TikTok influencer in the very first 10 mins or so. Why? Idk, maybe he forgor to change settings his character settings, or maybe he
was waiting to pull a fast one. You tell me. He's also the same as everyone else that's come before him in terms of protagonists. The only key difference is the backstory which seems new from what I've seen, but everything surrounding these guys after is so banal and dull. It took itself too seriously whilst also forgetting simple things to cover first. That reminds me, this Erika girl thought it was funny to sit somewhere wild upon entering Nagi's place because she is rich and doesn't know basic common sense. Lol. Maybe it's a reflection of how dumb influencers are, but that might be too cynical. Perhaps she was just thinking of new content for her new content house (shoutout to whatever the hell that is) or something. Again, you tell me.
I suppose I can praise this for looking nice, but that doesn't seem to be on anyone's radar in examing anime or choosing which to go for. You should at least take in the fact that it looks pretty damn strange at times like someone morphing or something, not My Sis My Writer bad but it comes on every odd occasion in small detail. The studio probably didn't want to put in the effort, can't really blame them. At least the music is nice.
If it wasn't already obvious, I don't have a lot to say. We are only 3 of 24 episodes in. This doesn't seem to be received well on the manga side, but that's a different thing altogether. Going off from what is told of audience perception there though, it is probably safe to assume that this won't be something worth your while. There's a lot better out there like the aforementioned Nisekoi. That's all from me.
