Mark your calendar. The Akiyuki Shinbo helmed Shaft (Madoka Magica, the Monogatari series) adaptation of Nisekoi has been scheduled for January 2014. In the meantime, November's release of volume 9 Naoshi Komi's Shounen Jump manga will include a special drama CD. 

 

Leads include Kouki Uchiyama (Soul Eater's Soul Eater) as Raku Ichijou, Nao Tōyama (World God Only Know's Kanon Nakagawa) as Chitoge Kirisaki and and Kana Hanazawa as Kosaki Onodera.

 

Seishirō Tsugumi is voiced by Mikako Komatsu (K's Neko) and Ruri Miyamoto is voiced by Yumi Uchiyama (Binbogami ga!'s Momiji).

 

Yuuki Kaji (Attack on Titan's Eren Jeager) has been tapped to play Shū Maiko. Takehito Koyasu (Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo) is the anime's Claude.

 

 

 

Viz releases the manga in North America and serializes it in its Weekly Shonen Jump digital anthology.

 

From Viz's description

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!
