This year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump announced a live-action movie adaptation of Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi (Nisekoi: False Love) manga on Monday. The movie is scheduled to open in Japanese theaters this December.

Komi launched the romantic comedy manga as a one-shot in Shueisha's seasonal Shounen Jump NEXT! magazine in January 2011, which began serialization in Weekly Shounen Jump as a full-fledged series in November of that year. The manga reached its completion in August 2016, compiling a total of 25 volumes. Nisekoi has over 10 million copies in print as of July 2016.

Taishi Tsutsui drew the four-volume Magical Pâtissière Kosaki-chan!! spin-off manga in Shounen Jump+ from December 2014 to September 2016. A side-story novel by Hajime Tanaka has been published since June 2013. Shueisha released the novel's third volume in April 2015.

Studio Shaft adapted the manga into two TV anime seasons: the first airing in Winter 2014 for 20 episodes and the 12-episode sequel in Spring 2015. The 14th, 16th, 17th, and 21st compiled manga volumes also bundled OVA episodes between October 2014 and January 2016.

Viz Media licensed the manga in English under its Shounen Jump imprint and published the 25th and last volume on January 2. Aniplex of America licensed the anime series for North American distribution and released the first season on four Blu-ray volumes from November 2014 to May 2015 and the second season in two Blu-ray volumes in June and August 2016.

In all honesty, I think they should let Nisekoi die off already. If they really were going to make something Nisekoi related, I'm sure most people would have preferred a new anime season rather than a live action movie. This news is starting to make me wonder if there are other plans though.

Speaking of a new season, in my opinion, it's highly unlikely that there will actually be one. Seeing how the main point of anime is to promote the source material, there isn't much promoting left for Nisekoi since it's already finished publishing. I don't see any reason why the producers will attempt for a third season (which I seriously doubt will be enough to cover the rest of the manga) when they have the choice to go after other series that can potentially give them a better ROI. There are always exceptions, but I wouldn't count on it.

As much as I'd prefer a third season instead, I'm not that mad we're getting a live action, mainly bc I won't be watching it :P

Gintama 2 is in my priorities :P

Hey I mean, it's a chance for season three! Better then nothing... still where is that new damn season!

Ugh. It went the Bleach route of getting a live action movie instead of a new season.

DO NOT WANT.

It's possible to get a new season, but it will depend on 3 dimension Chitoge.

Hopefully we get a season 3 down the line, it’d be great if they animate the rest of the series.

Nisekoi is ok and I think that a live action movie could be better than the manga since they don't need to put in cgi or action scenes.

This is not going to happen probably but they should focus on Raku, Chitoge, and Onodera as the mains and leave in Tsugumi, Ruri and Shu as the best friend characters. Leave all other characters out and adapt until the first school festival arc. Cut out filler and add in scences that would make the movie flow better. It still won't be good but at least this can can accomplished in 2hrs.

Why are you guys attacking the fans of the series? Is is because your ship didn't sail?

Or because it was bad?
I still remember why for fuck sake people praising it as a masterpiece especially calling it "best ending", despite all the dragging story and endless lame ass love story that keeps the same formula of teasing.

Then what's the point having all those girls without any character development though?

We already fucking know who's the winner in the end, i even still remember someone saying about Author ask who should Raku end up with and people choose Chitoge wohoo.
Also the damn anime adaptation on 2nd season, absolutely nothing to remember.

I hate Nisekoi fans in general especially those who praising it as a masterpiece.
Well who am i to judge for their taste as my own shit taste might as well shit to them.
But can't run from the fact that Nisekoi was a huge disappointment.
I mean it's my personal favorite so what can I say.(But then again you are still complaining about a ship in the show.)

They are not going to remove the Harem part of the show, since it did spark the interest in the manga on to who was the girl and the suspense from it. They'll take out the fillers though, everybody knows they can only put so much into a 2 hr movie.

The only way to keep the Harem aspect is by just keeping it with Chitoge and Kosaki
And maybe Tsumugi and Marika in it to but it is only going to be 2hrs long.
That's why it's better suited to be a tv drama or multiple movies. Of course they'll still try to put Chitoge and Kosaki and Marika if they can complete the manga story in 2 hrs or less. That's why I'm against it being a live adapt. But if it's successful, then there is the possibility of season 3.

To be honest, the movie better be not faithfull to the manga.

The manga series has way to many filler chapters and the major chaptors are disconnected.

So in order to make it work, they have to remove the filler like chapters and make the Major chaptors connected while removing the harem like parts.
This way they can also put more spotlight on the fact that Chitoge and Raku have to fake a relationship.
