Fun Read!

This is really fun read, every chapter has decent amount of Comedy and Romance Elements mixed

all girls have their own personality and are very likable, Naoshi fans should give this a chance instead of comparing it to it's One shot OR Double arts for that matter, coz Nisekoi in itself is a good stand alone series and should be treated as such

10/10 for enjoyment factor alone

Light romance Read   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

It is what it is. It's not a master piece of romance, but it delivers what it promisses. A light romance read for a younger audience. It is funny, it is romantic, it's fun. Just dont expect it to be what it is not.

I see people talking about double arts, I went and read it. Honestly, I rather read this than double arts, it was nearly as good as people make it to be. *dodging axes to the head*

The one issue. The outcome is too obvious. It doesnt create the doubt that "Ichigo 100%" did, never letting you know who's gonna be the girl. This one fails horribly at that. But then again, Ichigo 100% was the same at first, then the author overhauled the whole thing pushing the female protagonist aside and leveling everything up, even changing the girl she planned to have with the protagonist at the end through the course of the manga. So, if this one could do the same, it would be way more interesting.

About cliches and all. What romance is not cliched today? Ichigo 100% is FULL os clichés, still, that doesnt define the manga, there was more going on to it. So the fact that this one also has a bunch of clichés isnt all bad.

Concluding. It is what it is, dont expect more than it wants to deliver, and there is still room to improve and content to explore, just like Ichigo 100. So it is worth a read if you enjoy young romances.

Like many people I really liked the OneShot. It really emphasized the Yakuza/Gangster aspects of the romance. Thats not to say that I dont like the actual series. I do, just not as much. They really toned down the underworld aspect and turning it into a love triangle, then a love quartet. Still, all in all, a pretty good read.

The Oneshot was better.   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

The Oneshot was actually fantastic. A boy and a girl (childhood friends who share their dislike of each other) who also happen to be the heirs of yakuza and mafia gangs, respectively. The gang leaders (their fathers) do not want conflict, however their subordinates want to paint the town red with one another. Therefore, the logical (for a manga it's fairly logical, ok?) answer to this is to have the boy and the girl date each other, the gang subordinates dote on their respective heir with a passion and therefore are happy to call a truce lest they disturb the couple's 'true love'. The banter between those two characters was hilarious and heartwarming, and their attempts to keep up appearances of 'going out' to appease the gangs was hilarious.

Then enter the series, and here comes the Onodera - the third wheel. Sorry, Love Triangle. Enter other needless female romance options for no reason and the dilution of the 'boy + girl keeps secret from gangs' formula to a 'boy + many girls seek for true love from childhood with a convoluted whose girl's key fits in the boy's locket plot device plus next to no yakuza/gang interaction whatsoever and degeneration into typical cliche stereotypes that occur in comedy romances' formula.
I feel the dynamic and chemistry between the two bickering childhood friends was near-perfect, the move into love triangle and further into harem was pointless and stupid. And the crime syndicates element has been largely superseded by cliched this-is-in-every-romance-manga-ever elements.

It's still better than most romance harem manga out there, mostly because of the extremely funny comedy that is present, but it went from 'amazing' to merely 'pretty good' between the Oneshot and the series.

at first i didnt want to read this because of all the negative comments n im not going to lie a lot of it is true. its cliche the not so original childhood back story and it s really nothing you havent seen before but despite all that its a good read to the point i cant wait for the next chapter. it has its funny moments n the character if u get into it are pretty likable there all very cute in there own way that u cant help but love them n the story is a kinda sweethearted and even though u kinda know what gonna happen it just sucks you in n you just wanna read it anyways ..... im giving it a 10 because it been a very long time since i read a manga with all these cliches n still want to read more...

n just saying i dont really comment on a manga unless it was a really enjoyable read or a really bad one

Ingredients for Nisekoi:

1 cup of "Every cliche drawn on any romance/harem manga"
2 cups of mediocre fanservice
3 cups stupid childhood backstory
1/20th teaspoons of Originality

Mix, then scatter for the swarming fanboys

Short review. All the "rival" characters that have appeared after Onodera are just boring and unlikeable. The whole lock-and-key-past is so undescribably stupid that whenever its brought up in the manga I feel like I'd be better of using my time to finger saggy grannies (not to mention, its just a lazy rehash of the childhood setup in Love Hina). Female protagonist's blonde hair is genetically impossible and I'm pretty sure her bunny ears are a school dress code violation

The one redeeming feature of this manga is the male protagonists best friend. A funny lad he is. But again, like everything else, he's just another "something that I've seen before"

Well, i know a lot of us have been disappointing with the Harem tag (including me) But I realised that even though it does put me off a lot, i cna still read it. The story is headed somewhere for sure, and it Wont have a harem ending. Atleast it doesnt look like that from the recent chapters. I currently read chapter 46, and am eagerly waiting for more development in the plot. Its a good shonen romance, please give it a try.

I loved the oneshot and the first chapter. My hopes were so high!


And then I saw the harem tag. sad I take back all the good things I said about this manga. I guess Komi Naoshi just gave up and decided he had to pander to the lowest common denominator to keep this series from getting cancelled, and that's just sad. (He should seriously try to pitch his stuff to a different magazine, like Shonen Sunday or something.) Here's hoping that he goes back to doing oneshots soon!

Exactly as it seems   
Rating: 7.7 / 10.0

So, I picked up Nisekoi mainly because Komi Naoshi is the mangaka, and his previous works (i.e. Double Arts, Personant, Williams, etc.) have been clever and interesting, with a new, inventive spin on old premises. And, to some degree, the same can be said of Nisekoi.

This manga is basically a bunch of harem tropes and such done completely straight and occasionally lampshaded. The only thing that really differs is that the male protagonist is actually, well, likable. And despite all the cliche moments in which he accidentally does something questionable (such as peeping or whatever), he does ultimately come off as well-meaning and not-an-asshole. Whoo!

However, I would not necessarily recommend this manga, especially to those looking for something more serious. It has nice art and decent characters, sure, but at its roots, it's exactly what it appears to be: a silly, romantic, harem comedy.

I postponed reading this and added to my 'to read' list because:
a) The premise of a romance involving yakuza or gangsters of any sort just totally has me on the hook
b) The mangaka is the same author of Double Arts(which I still mourn over for getting axed. Why, Japan? Whyyy!?)

...then I finally jumped onto reading this, only, I noticed the harem tag and almost got whiplash from the double-take I did because I'm sure that wasn't there when I added it to the list. Dammit. I thought I was going to be able to enjoy another comedic shounen manga with some good romance where there's a lot of tension between the leads. Got my hopes up for nothing...well maybe a bit something since I really liked the oneshot which showed so so so much promise.

It's hard to get any good romances with the leads in contention with each other and I'm such a sucker for arranged marriages/forced to live together/etc. where the characters learn to love each other despite thinking they could never grow to like the other person. Falling under the demographic for shounen made it all the better because we don't get anything too gooey, just scenes that are just right or those that make you want something more but end up getting satisfied by how things go anyway.

And then there's the ridiculous addition of gangsters/yakuza/delinquents, I seriously had heart-eyes for this manga. Luuuurve the premise. LOVE!!! (I blame Gokusen, GTO, all the other epic mangas with badass people)

Then I read it. It has its good points...it's just, my palm has really gotten to know my face lately while reading this. Why the harem? Why? Is it not 'shounen' enough(I know, I know, shounen isn't a genre, yaddayadda) that it has to have the addition of female 'rivals'. There was just the two of them in the oneshot.

We go to the main series and we start off with a love-triangle(insert twitchy eye but at least Onodera was bearable. Not really. Honestly, I'm an Onodera hater. Sue me) then we get some more girls with pages and pages aaaand pages of fanservice. We get it, they're cute/hot.

If only we had the same amount of male 'rivals' then maybe, I'd be okay with the harem. We rarely get any harem with reverse-harem in the same manga(speaking of which, if anyone can point me to any with a harem aaand a reverse-harem, I'd be much obliged).

I Loved the pair with their hilarious nicknames for each other: "Shitty Darling" and whatnot. Love. I'm okay with *some* love rivals if it's helpful to the plot. That ain't really happening here. Whatever, Chitoge FTW!

But I still think it's worth reading for the comedy if not for female lead(referring to the one mentioned in the summary)...oh, and the guy. I don't usually go for the childhood friend in a harem but I just loved Chitoge because she wasn't some annoying obsessed wimpy girl always chasing after the guy while the guy ogled others.(The oneshot outshines the rest of the chapters really with the tsundere level just right. In the main series, it was a bit off)
