About time to end this trainwreck.
And end it with Raku getting himself killed by a gorilla.
Shitoge fans rejoice. It's been obvious from the start that the worst girl wins.

I can definitely agree with you. I enjoyed this manga but I felt there were too many chapters with unnecessary filler. I can quite say that I didn't dislike it though, it was a fun read! However, I disliked how Komi decided to throw in sudden plot development starting from volume 17. I felt like Komi rushed everything from that point, and it no longer had it's original feel. It felt unnatural. It felt like a whole other book! Also, Yui was an attempt to milk the series out a little more. But, like you said, it turned into a huge fail. Because, everything starting from volume 17, reading this manga was a hobby but a chore. It was no longer fun to read as I aguishly read through. "This isn't To-Love Ru!" What stems from my disappointment from this series is the plot to begin with. Sure, it may sound original, but it was flawed from the start. Raku and Chitoge forced to be lovers? Sure, that sounds exciting! But, nevertheless in the end, without a surprise, ah! They end together which I find the ending of Nisekoi cliche, unoriginal, and a huge disappointment. We all seen that before and that's what I find of what Nisekoi an example of a "Bad ending". I'm sure people may disagree with me, but this is entirely just my opinion. In my opinion however, as the reader, I want to see the unexpected to happen but in a natural flow in a sense. Not the expected. That's why we enjoy reading books. But, to see an ending of Nisekoi to go out like this, was a huge disappointment.
holy shit i've never seen someone abuse the bold and underline tools so hard

lets get married.

"finally its ending"

just stfu. lets see u guys write a better manga and make as much as Komi

That is an extremely well thought-out, not-at-all flawed argument against criticism.

Well it's the obvious "main girl" always win rules. So of course Chitoge wins.

Anyway, let's just hope the ending is not as bad as Oreimo... and that it actually had an actual ending.

I wish, he didn't choose any of the girls. Like other harem.
Because I feel bad for the rest, and it will lead to a dramatic ending.

It was fun roughly until the end of the anime, but the author never found any new idea to keep going. The dates (with Onodera or Chitoge) are always exactly the same, nothing ever changes. He even tried to add for the fourth time a new harem member with Yui and it was a huge fail. The best idea he had IMO was the "you don't have to fake your relationship anymore" and it could have change the pace of the story, but the next chapter "Oh, nevermind, keep going"....
The whole thing turns into a drama and forgets the comedy part in the last 50-60 chapters, it was pretty boring to read. And all of this for the easiest and most obvious conclusion ever, a huge disappointment for a really likable anime. After reading the manga, I hope we won't get a third season :/

Only the first 50 chapters were great, then the mangaka started loosing it.
Finally I can keep reading knowing there wont be more possible fillers later on.

Hah glad I never continued reading this, worst is that worst girl wins kek. Shu x Teacher is the only romance that I genuinely like in this manga though

Good riddance to be honest.
The story become really lackluster ever since the harem member keep growing in number and he never bother to give some more focus or character development to the past character.

Yuuraigou sou seems a lot more promising (at least he give me some pretry hot fanservice).

Good bye Nisekoi, you are mildly amusing at best.

The anime is excellent so far (only a few episodes in), but I have heard mixed things about the second season and the later parts of the manga. Hopefully the ending of the manga is great! Most anime don't get third seasons, but it would be great if the end of the series could get adapted.

Jul 30, 2016 6:44 PM by Nintendofan204

Not really surprising at all. It's about time this happened though, ever since that really long Marika arc I haven't enjoyed it all that much.

Jul 30, 2016 6:22 PM by _Kairu_

About damn time. I can finally put this trainwreck to rest.
