Production of nisekoi
Nisekoi is a manga series, an anime and a production company. When reading or watching anything that has been adapted from another work of fiction, it’s easy to assume that the quality on the original work will transfer over into its adaptation.

If you had started on Nisekoi by trying out an episode of the anime first without knowing anything about it beforehand, but had known for a fact that there was a manga behind everything maybe because of all those promotional pictures with text on them then you would have been severely mistaken, especially if you dropped off somewhere along the way. This is because the anime has mostly everything about it streamlined in order to make viewers want to watch more of it, while the manga does not.
The series Nisekoi is written and illustrated by Naoshi Komi, which began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump on December 20th, 2011 with twenty-seven volumes currently out. It was adapted into an anime by studio SHAFT (that also did Puella Magi Madoka Magica) which aired from January 11th till March 29th this year for a total of twenty-two episodes.
Story of nisekoi
The basic premise for this story starts off like any other Harem Anime, seemingly impossible love polygons where there are way too many girls in love with the protagonist. That is where the similarities end because many aspects of the manga’s story come straight out of left field and it has a tendency to go off on tangents
Nisekoi follows high school student and typical lazy kid Raku Ichijo, who is in fact the heir to a yakuza group run by his father Shuei-Gumi faction. One day he helps out a girl named Chitoge Kirisaki after she gets into trouble with some delinquents from another mob family called Beehive (BK). As expected, both the leader of Beehive and Chitoge’s father put an agreement that they cannot have any sort of relationship between them or else there’ll be a serious fight.
After going on a series of comical events, Raku and Chitoge have to fake being in a relationship for five years so they can avoid said conflict from happening. As if it couldn’t get any more complicated than that, a new character named Kosaki Onodera appears who’s also after Raku’s heart. She has the same face as what is expected to be Raku’s future fiancée with whom he made a promise ten years ago, but that young girl disappeared one day leaving only her diary behind. To make matters worse (or better depending on your tastes), there’s another girl called Haru Onodera Kosaki’s elder sister who also head over heels for Raku.
Characters in the story
If that’s not bad enough, there’s also the fact that each character has two different sides to their personality, one as how they truly are and one as who they want other people to see them as, it gets tiresome after a while seeing them switching between those personalities every chapter. However it should be said that these switches do make sense story wise if you know what kind of past each girl has (which is not really revealed until later on) and where Raku comes from.
This was made even worse in the anime where viewers weren’t able to get attached to any of the girls because none of them got much development or screen time which leads me into my next point. The characters are all likable and enjoyable to watch, but that’s it. There was no buildup for any of them. Most of the girls were only used as plot devices to move the story forward and not much else and it wasn’t like you could say one girl was better than another; pretty much all of them share the same base personality which was “extremely clingy.” To put it simply, Nisekoi is a manga that makes you want to read the next chapter every week because it’s entertaining but once you reach the final page you feel mostly disappointed and unfulfilled.
Art in the series
The art in Nisekoi was above average at best with some noticeable inconsistencies throughout its run. There were times when the characters looked too chibi for their own good to where they resembled dolls rather than teenagers. One thing which people really like about this series was Chitoge’s designs, she wore turtleneck sweaters which made her look less attractive although whether or not that was what her character designer was going for I won’t speculate.
