Nisekoi: False Love

It was hate at first sight... rather a knee-to-the-head at first sight when Raku Ichijo meets Chitoge Kirisaki! Unfortunately, Raku’s gangster father arranges a false love match with their rival’s daughter, who just so happens to be Chitoge! However, Raku’s searching for his childhood sweetheart from ten years ago, with a pendant around his neck as a memento, and he can't even remember her name or face!

[I'm typng down everything below, relying solely on my memory] Nisekoi is a romcom, and a successful one at that. There's Raku Ichijou, our main male protagonist, who just happens to be a girl magnet. Anyhow, that's beside the point. Getting to the actual review now.  The story is interesting. I mean, the author does a good job in terms of making the childhood friend a mystery, and keeps us wondering. This is probably the only original part of it all. The rest of the plot are filled with cliches. Generally speaking, if you wish to read a shoujo manga will all of the usual stuff [ ie. girl being afraid of the dark despite acting tough ; girl hate boy at first sight and vice versa ; forced into a relationship despite not liking one another ; etc]  this is the manga for you. It's pretty boring, to be honest. I mean, the parts that are meant to be funny makes me laugh, but this manga makes it so easy for me to toss it aside, and approach another. The art is good. The miens the characters wear are beautiful. Though there are times when the art is questionable, but it's adorable in the end. I like the art. Period. The side characters are amazing. The main ones, are crap. They're dense, hesitant, secretive, and honestly, the plot would go nowhere had the side characters been absent since the beginning. The main characters, Raku Ichijo, Chitoge Kirisaki, and Onodera Kasaki. They're cute to a certain degree, but are honesty boring. Their reactions could be easily predicted, and that honesty ruins the story. They each have their own individual quirks, and share some qualities, such as the inability to do anything. Maybe I'm exaggerating on that one. But seriously. They can make no contributions to the main plot, had the side characters such as Ruri or Shu were not there.  But that aside, it's still an okay manga. The love story still sucks though.  c:


I don't usually read manga, in fact, I think this is the only manga I've ever completed (reading manga takes too long), so I'm mainly comparing this to the anime version and other anime I've watched. The only reason I read Nisekoi is because I wanted to know the whole story rather than wait for the anime to come out (The anime's good, but not as good as the manga). Also, I read Nisekoi 1 year ago, so forgive me if some things are inaccurate. By the way, I won't put any spoilers. OVERALL Nisekoi is 100% harem and romantic comedy, but what makes it different from the other romantic comedies is that the author carefully thought out all the character personalities and their relationships. The complexity of the small friend circle is truly amazing.  STORY The story is pretty straightforward. A bunch of girls suddenly appear in Raku's life, and he has to choose one of them. A lot of the chapters don't contribute to the story, and are only for developing relationships a little, so it might get a little boring if you are here just for the story. ART The art is pretty good, there isn't much else to say about it. CHARACTERS All the characters have completely different personalities, which makes their relationships so complex. Each relationship is very different from another, and you get to see how the relationships develop and go through ups and downs. However, everybody's personalities are pretty much set in stone from the beginning, and once you understand them, events are pretty predictable.
