Dreadful, Disgusting, Despicable   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

Dreadful is the only way to describe this absolute pile of crap. The plot is pretty much nonexistent, and I'm sure you can guess how it goes in this Pretend Lover #5961 series, and don't you worry, the story doesn't try in one way to set itself apart from those, so if you really do like those this is the series for you. Past that, the plot has been absolutely nonexistent, which normally is not a problem for many series, they can pull off episodic chapters easily, this is not one of them. The episodes come out to such a generic, uninspired, overdone way they are really forgettable to the point where I can't even remember a lot of the time if I've already read the chapter or not, like a disk reader they're completely wiped from memory after you finish the chapter. And Jesus Christ, the retconning. It's everywhere. Like after every "arc" there's a shocking revelation in the "plot" that girl X was actually not coincidentally placed to fall on MC's penis! There's only so many times you can use the "When in doubt, add more girls card" and this series has done that trick about 7 times now.

The girls themselves aren't much better. As you can guess from the synopsis, the generic loser MC suddenly finds himself overflowing with vaginal fluid, even younger sisters start wanting him, all for one chapters worth of effort mind you. This is how it works out for every girl, MC does a nice act, you get about 5 panels of embarrassment, and then a corny line at the end of the chapter to wrap up the obvious feelings of "love" that sprout if you're too stupid to catch it.

The only thing not vomit inducing about this series is the art, which is quite nice, but I don't know about you, art is not the make or break factor in a series, and I firmly believe he could have drawn the most amazing scenes and it will still not save this.

Frankly, don't pick this up. After 97 chapters I'm certain to drop it soon, as I can't bother to waste my time on it anymore. People might say to try it for the cute girls or the funny panels/expressions, but that is exactly all there is to this manga and if people recommend this to you they are TROLLING.

Suffering from Shounen Jump Syndrome.   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

What's Shounen Jump Syndrome, you ask? There are actually three types of this: (1) is the type that gets low ratings and gets axed because it was just the same thing as the more popular ones but worse, even though the one shot wasn't; (2) are those that get low ratings despite interesting and different content from the big three and consequently rot and morph into the same kind as the popular series to become more popular; and (3) are those that start off interesting then get high ratings but becomes a victim of its own success as the magazine will try to suck the mangaka dry to make it as long as possible and rake in as much money as they can regardless if the story is still interesting or not.

Nisekoi is the third type.

Yes, I just invented this on the spot in jest, but Nisekoi is actually suffering from being dragged on for too long due to its popularity. The story is good for about half the chapters it has now (as of writing, there are 96); the mangaka probably expected to be axed again early on and was unprepared to make a serial this long so I guess we can't really blame that on him, but still, it's suffering from its longevity.

It started off good, and the love triangle was actually intriguing. Who did he make that promise with? What will he do when he finds out if one or the other is the one? Will he break up with his fake girlfriend and potentially start a gang war if his crush was the one, or will he try to make their relationship real and give up on his crush if his fake girlfriend was the one? - Those questions will keep bugging you and you will be left begging for an answer after each chapter.

But then another girl came. And then another. And then the story goes in circles, having random episodes that has no real significance to the premise. Although, there are some that do hold some weight for some backgrounds and character development, but will all of them be important to the conclusion of the premise?

Now, Love Hina, which Nisekoi has a similar premise to and is also a harem series, had more than 100 chapters, why can't Nisekoi can't? Because the promise in Love Hina had a prerequisite to get into a certain university, which its main protagonist strived to, and failed, and strived again; the girls were already there at the beginning and grew attached to the main character. Nisekoi promised marriage when they meet later on in life but the main protagonist only forgot who he made that promise with - that in itself is not a problem if it was being tackled this long, but Nisekoi's longevity is due to other girls popping up out of thin air, making it feel like the mangaka is stalling the story by adding more content outside the main premise.

always loved this kind manga   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

this manga is suggested to me by some user at the forum when i'm looking for suggestion to read, turn out its became another manga that I can read over and over when I want to read something lighthearted, funny, and a little ecchi too..
I know the story is shallow and simple, but how to create an engaging, interesting story from the simple idea is sometimes is genius by itself.
I know the main character is not as strong as my fave char at this topic story Hachibe Maeda from Ai Kora or more gullible shameful guy like Yuuki Rito from To Love Ru even though they're facing with quite the same situation. But with his own style, the writer manage to make Raku to standout evenly and show us some nice story too.

Thanks for this very cute harem!

This is to me one of my favorite mangas if not the first, and the cutest harem I know! Sure it goes through a lot if not all clichés, but still feels fresh as there aren't any perveted thoughts here.
Basically what I want to say is, don't just stop because there are clichés : the story by itself has a strong value, actually thanks to it^^
only the art is not the best point, but here it's a matter of preferring art over story
If people aren't ready to read harem, just don't read it, that's all.

Better Than Average, But Still Just The Same Old

Niseoki is an overrated harem manga. Plot wise it's "kind of" unique featuring a group of 1 boy and 3 girls (the lone male being the male lead and MC) who used to play together when they were kids until eventually they all grew up and "forgot" about each other, years later they all eventually meet each other again (correction remember each other) as high schoolers and later realize they were childhood friends and remember about the lock the MC has around his neck and the "promise" they made to one another as well as some memories (are you serious?). The only way this plot makes sense is if there was a quadruple case of amnesia.

The characters and art are quite likeable and that can be considered one of the key differences between this manga and any other one, though pretty weak if you ask me. Another change in this manga is the the MC, unlike most Harem MC's "Raku" (MC) is actually reliable and not some good for nothing who "accidentally grabs a girls chest" then gets smacked by the manga's tsundere character.

Another key difference between Niseoki and other harem manga is that this one has NO fan-service/ecchi scenes, so it is purely harem and drama, also the mafia families play no significant role in the manga whatsoever so its more of a "they're just kind of here thing" so don't expect anything worthwhile. Another problem is that the manga is far too long and just dragging itself on the author had the chance to end it multiple times.

All in all though this series is really nothing close to "Amazing", story development wise its nothing special and really just "common" other than the plot this manga brings nothing new to the table, if you simply like reading harem manga then by all means read this one it will suit your tastes just fine, but what this manga and many other harem manga/anime are missing is the "plot first, romance second" aspect, but I guess if this sells anything sells

It started out really nice, my rating was 10 back then. It was cute and funny, with the heart pendant mystery and stuff. But somehow, idk why as the chapters go on.. the girls just keep on increasing. I don't really have anything against Harem but somehow it's starting to get annoying. It's like, there's no progress in the Romance at all. Sure, Chitoge's feelings have progress but, Raku's feelings just keep on getting mixed up with the other girls.

Somehow, I'm starting to want to drop this.

Super slow paced romance. All those misunderstandings, nothing that has never been done before.

Girl and boy hate each other, but, by the end of the chapter, something happens that brings them close. The protagonist then proceed to think she is actually a good girl, but she gets mad because of something, punches him and he then realises she is not good at all and the chapter ends the same way it begun.

Still, the tsundere here is better than in other manga, not perfect, tough.

Once all FOUR love interests show up, story progress slows down completely into an almost episodic state. Skip a couple chapters and you won't miss anything important.

The mafia aspect that made this series somewhat unique is pretty much ignored most of the time. What's left is the classic cliche androcentric harem filled with innocent indecisive kids just to waste our time. I recommend something with better focus and progression like Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo.

Certainly not perfect, but it's an entertaining short story, if you're looking for an innocent romance. Art isn't great, but it's consistent. If you're not at least smiling by the end, you have no sense of humor.

The plot caught my attention, but the story became weak after they introduced so many characters. I didn't expect it to be harem :'( I admit that it's still quite enjoyable to read and I hope it gets better with time.
