Magical Girl episodes should keep it to themselves at least. Or have it be an OVA, which will pretty much suit it.
Anyway, the second half was fine. Haru and Ichijou had some "quality" time together. Kosaki and Haru's mother sure is something else.

Last week I thought it was weird enough for yet another new girl to be introduced, but hey she's pretty cool. I guess next week's episode is going to be pretty funny with her around.

Then, we only get 10 minutes of Haru. But only after having 14 minutes of my day pretty much wasted. I don't know what they were thinking when they decided to do this. It's obvious that the plot won't go anywhere anytime soon - that is to say, if we actually get a third season and we do get to see a proper wrap up. But it's funny, so it's still pretty good. However, there was no need for them to go out of their way just to make the plot even more nonsensical with this kind of unfunny filler. This isn't even worth an OVA imo, let alone more than half a regular episode.

I hope we don't see any more of this mahou shoujo stuff next week, unless it's really funny. But I'd much rather see a regular episode.

Eh, the magical girl thing was ok.

It's too bad Haru still dislikes Raku.

Onodera's mom confirmed as best girl? I'm starting to think so.

The second season seems to have no direction. Other than the addition of Haru there just isn't much of a plot. The Madoka takeoff wasn't that funny. It's like they are just adding filler waiting for the season to end. I hope they at least resolve the mystery of the locket by the end of this season because I think this is about it for Nisekoi. Too bad because I really liked the first season.

Though it's rare for me to comment, when I do so, I try to elaborate.
Not for this episode. Doesn't deserve it.

I've skipped more than half. That's not a filler, it's simple garbage.
Reminds a bit of the 'ostrich ninja', in Naruto. And this 'Nisekoi: 08' might be worse (never thought it was even possible).

A try to gain time in an episode means lack of story, and of imagination if you put magical girls with some pathetic reason for it.

I'm disappointed at Nisekoi, which fell deeply in my conceit, and also in humanity, for having more than 75% of the votes over [3/5] in this forum. They are to blame for this pathetic excuse for an episode.

Trash [1/5].

Ruri in mouse form stole Kirin's footsteps

He sure collected Haru for his harem fast. Does this guy have that bad a case of amnesia that he forgot that he lost his precious locket again?

Episode fun, enjoyable part of the first and the last, a bit less than the middle part a little dull. Narrative that does not lose the enamel in the transition between the usual story SOL and one dedicated to Kosaki and his work as a magician. Drawings quite good as quality.

It's gonna take a long time.... she's gonna keep hating on Raku for at least another 30 chapters and that's because of the fillers happening in the manga.

And season two probably ends with Shuu's arc, so probably season 3, damn I want to see the festival firework arc with Haru animated :(

It stopped being enjoyable at this epsiode. I was fine with the valetine epsiode, and i thought things would get back to normal . Then this episode.... the worstAnd to top it off, i was reccomended to watch this only to find after 2 bad episodes pending, that Nisekoi: is the second season and i've missed out on a whole season.

It would explain a couple things . . .RIP

LOL at Shuu, worst villian ever.

This was probably my least favorite episode of the season. Not saying this episode was bad, but every other episode was just.. so good.

2nd half with Haru was hilarious! I'm guessing none of this episode was canon?

We got four episodes left.. Give us more Onodera x Raku! I know there isn't going to be a conclusion, but still this second season has been a lot of fun. Really like this show.

SHAFT, pls! That mahou shoujo Onodera, including OP and following scene was just brilliant! :D

And they toned down Haru's voice in the second part, she is much more pleasant to listen now which is good. Sadly, Kosaki will be siderailed by Haru for some time now.

Very enjoyable episode!

Turning Nisekoi into a magical girl parody was great, magical girl Kosaki! Magical Styling is a really cute song.
I would enjoy it if they had more random episodes like this.

Second half was typical Nisekoi, I was happy that it was focused on the Onodera sisters again.
Mirai, zura~!

Wow. That was a complete waste of an episode, and considering it was an episode of an anime where nothing ever happens that's saying something. I really enjoyed the first season, despite nothing ever progressing. And I enjoyed the episodes of this season with Chitoge's mom, and I especially enjoyed Paula's game with Tsugumi and Raku, but everything else has been garbage. I'll watch it because it's only 12 episodes, and I don't want to drop it after coming this far, but this is really disappointing.
Odds are I'm not going to find my way back to a thread after my first post, it happens on occasion but not often. So, if I say something that offends you and you feel the need to force your opinion on me because obviously everyone should have your opinion or none at all, feel free to post it in the thread that I'll probably never see again. However, if you are interested in intelligent discourse, feel free to message me.

New OP which Kosaki Onodera sang. and No ED this time.
1st part was the Puella Magi Nisekoi Magica! Title: Magical Pâtissière Kosaki-chan
Kosaki is like Madoka ref, while Chitoge would be Magical Gorilla Chitoge (very hilarious) and Tachibana would be Magical Police Marika.
Ruri = Rurin did an epic upskirt pantsu flash to Onodera!

2nd part was more focus again with Haru. Thou...she didn't believe Ichijou about the one who saved her from the thugs last episode. Haru insist that she remembered that it was a 180 cm tall prince...haha, nothing Raku could do to a girl that doesn't believe from a mans words. Unless we get to Raku's Locket Shape Pendant Chain Necklace.

5/5.

Having a spin-off play during half of the episode is just plain wrong, even for a so-called fillers series. If they want to keep with the fillers, keep using the ones from the main series instead. There are things called OVAs for spin-offs like this.

Anyhow, that’s one of the main reasons people are mad about this episode. There’s also the fact that, except Haru’s introduction, pretty much nothing worthwhile has happened during this season whatsoever (a season, which it’s soon coming to an end). Yes, season 1 didn’t do too much either, but at least things moved and felt somewhat better.

I’ll bet that this season will end up in the most uneventful way possible. And no, I don’t think there will be a 3rd season after this one is over. To tell you the truth, we were lucky that they even announced a second season for this.

First half of the episode: Absolute trash that was obviously supposed to be funny but completely failed to be funny (except from Shu). Also, the fact that they wasted half the episode on that seems like a massive middle finger to fans from SHAFT. As if the plot wasn't moving slowly enough already.

Second half was a lot better and had its funny moments, particularly Onodera's mum stirring stuff up as usual and the way that Haru and Raku nearly bonded over their love of Kosaki.

Still, I do feel like I've been totally trolled by SHAFT here.


If you are looking for plot development you are in the wrong place :/

seems like the ppls that say they're going to drop are those ones that never read the manga, LOL.

else you would have already known about this episode and why it's awesome.

they need to make a full adaptation for Magical Patissier.

It's a really fun manga to read. Plus, Kosaki is the main girl in there.

Garbage episode + a recycled chapter in manga.
Too many girls, good story but no progress..
Now i decided to drop this.
The only thing that keeps me hanging was a hope for a good ending.
Just wait for it to end.

Well, the first part was pretty shitty but unfortunately it was better than the second part, which was just a more boring version of season 1 episode 16. Would have been better if they made it an actual, unironic magical girl segment, and it would have been even better if they made it an OVA rather than just putting it randomly in the actual show itself to delay story progression.

Remember a few episodes ago when I said I might actually be starting to like Nisekoi? I miss that time.

I'm a bit surprised by all of the hate towards this episode. Now, that's not to say this was an exceptional episode in any way. The first half was entertaining but something that felt like it would have been better placed in an OVA. The second half was also fine; it had its moments but I am not really sold on Haru as a character. All in all, a very middle of the road episode in my opinion.

Also, for all the people talking about filler and lack of progression in the story... can you really say you didn't expect anything different by now? There's nothing wrong for hoping for some resolution but this is a harem anime based on a Shounen Jump manga. That's pretty much the perfect storm for dragging things out. I mean, To-Love-Ru has already run for what? 60+ episodes so far? I'm just content to enjoy their delaying tactics and if we manage to get some conclusive ending before I die then that will be a nice bonus.

No, it's times infinity!

I was tempted to just skip the Magical Girl half of the episode until Shu showed up. That was *mildly* funny. And then we get the mega tsundere Haru just breaking walls and tipping stuff over because she's still booty-hurt about Raku. I like to call this the "tsundere hump" where there's a lot of misunderstanding to be cleared up. After all that, then they've gone over the tsundere hump.

I'm getting a towel and moving on to the next episode. Christ...
