All this and it's just returned to status quo between them. It's obvious now. The author is going to drag this out until it loses popularity, it will be canceled and then he will give it a rushed ending where he picks no one and everyone still has a chance like almost every other shitty harem ending

God damn I hate the mangaka who writes this so much. Why the fuck did you take all that character development and throw it away. What a fucking cop out.

He didn't throw it away. He just put it aside. It is still usable. If you have ever read Love Hina, the main character had to go throw a whole load of crap before his tsundere main heroine would admit that she likes him.

This is the same thing, except that Raku is the tsundere now. Chitoge's tsundere phase has passed, now she simply punishes Raku for being an idiot.

Not a good excuse in my book.

It's really not the same thing. While Love Hina was a harem because there were a lot of girls, there were only 2 possibilities when it came to romance, Naru and Shinobu. There were a couple scenes where Motoko showed a bit of interest, but they were few and far between. The rest couldn't give a damn.

Here everybody is all about Raku and Raku is just sitting there being a clueless moron for 150 chapters.

As if anyone but Chitoge or Onodera is really a choice here.

And unless the author decides to pick up with Onodera's character development, Chitoge is running this race alone.

Chitoge is "running the race alone" because Naoshi Komi is an idiot and had Onodera start the series 1 meter from the finish line.

Honestly, what room for romantic growth is there when Onodera likes Raku, Raku likes Onodera, but Chitoge is also supposed to be a relevant love interest and starts out with the two of them hating each other?

I've decided that after the latest issue, Raku is trying to beat Ichika as the densest idiot in anime or manga.

Because then the series ends at around chapter 5 and makes for a very short run.

Ah, the classic Raku..getting too embarrassed to say what he actually wants to and blurting out something else.

I'm hoping they go somewhere with the whole moving in together thing; instead of being trolled by the author for the 100th+ time. Raku's face

can only take so many beatings from Chitoge.


I don't think he was too embarrassed to say what he actually wants to say. I think he is that clueless. He can't fathom that he is actually in love with her and not Onodera.

I was not surprised that her dad stopped the move, but the reason was a bit of a surprise. However, it is clear that her dad understands how both of them really feel. The suggestion at the end makes things a bit more interesting.


I agree with Zensunni, and I think its understandable given what Onodera and Chitoge represent for Raku beyond their relationships with him. Being with Onodera also means being with the kind of girl who fits into his ideal of the life he *allegedly* wants (civil servant, quiet family life, etc.) whereas being with Chitoge (for real rather than just "faking it") means being a part of the yakuza/gangster life he's long said he wants to reject. So figuring out how he feels about these girls is more than just realizing what his true romantic feelings are, but also means he must figure out what kind of person he's becoming, and will be. It's not surprising he's having some difficulty with it. It's like what every teenager goes through x1000. Poor guy

Not really because after this I promise you this series will end with no choice. The author will drag it out until it loses popularity, it will be canceled and it will get the standard shitty "Everyone has a chance" harem ending.

That's the issue here. In love Hina there were 2 possible choices and it focused heavily on 1. Even when progress wasn't being made, 90% of chapters were about Keitaro and Naru. In Nisekoi, it constantly cuts to arcs for every girl. That's 5, 6 if you count Onodera's sister(who thankfully is out of the picture at least for now) it's to much. There has been no focus for the last 40 chapters and now that something did happen, it still ended with, "lol jk, just go back to how it was" and next week will be back to the same crap it's been where they focus 2-4 chapters on each girl rotating(with no actual plot development) and it will spin it's wheels in place for another 40 chapters. If it makes it that long of course. I don't think even the most die hard fanboys are gonna make it through another year of nothing happening.

Yeah, I think it's reasonably safe to assume that the author will end the series the same basic way as the one-shot that spawned the series in the first place. That being said, it's a shounen harem series, so the mangaka's going to milk it for as long as possible along the way there.
