Because the author and plot demanded it.

Onodera herself was just added in to be padding. The only thing her character ever did, was that she dumped herself so Raku wouldn't have to dump her. Think about this, the author tried intentionally to make a character that did nothing except for blush and smile... and people liked her. People loved the INTENTIONAL lack of character development and personality.


Thaaaank you.

Raku is going to have to deal with that domestic violence case for the rest of his life.



Anyway, I'm thinking the real trend has to do with authors always picking the worst choice to get fans riled up. All jokes aside, it's always going to be the one who has a weird, spontaneous meeting with the protagonist at the beginning. That is literally the like rule of 90% of anything that is romance or RomCom in anime out there. For instance, Raku getting kneed in the face by the ape-girl in the first episode; someone brought up Clannad earlier and, to use that as another example, remember how Tomoya and Nagisa met at the beginning of the first episode in front of the school.

Raku chose her because she is the girl that was closest to him. Shu told him to pick the girl that he always wants to talk to first about anything. Raku called her his best friend before he realized he was in love with her. A lot of people were disappointed that he didn't choose Onodera, but choosing Onodera at the end would have been retarded. You don't build up his relationship with Chitoge for 200 chapters and then have him choose Onodera at the end. Especially when he never had the same kind of friendship with Onodera that he had with Chitoge.

Because he likes her the most.... I have no clue why people try to use logic in Romance.

If we were going by logic, Raku would have ended up with Onodera from the beginning because the story relies entirely on people not remembering important events in their lives and other people keeping secrets who have no reason to.

I honestly dont understand how people could want a Raku Onodera ending though after how the story did those two characters. Its like you want a relationship where you and your girlfriend dont do anything because you are both to fucking embarrassed to even be in the same room.

Yeah pretty much what most of these guys have been saying. It was meant that way from the beginning. The plot in itself didn't really allow for Raku to choose Onodera, no matter how much I wanted that to happen.

Your last sentence lol... read Bakuman. Also I think the problem with Romance in any series that people get to invested in the pair they want and when they don't get it they get upset because they think that characters should do what they want or get upset because they where wrong.

It had been predestined from the beginning. No deep thought about it.

Funny thing is. My first time through Bakuman, I liked Kaya a lot more than Miho.

Though my second time through, I actually noticed how good of a woman Miho was. She was giving Saikou blue balls as sort of a carrot on a stick. Like if they just started going out right then and there, he was likely to get distracted and not give it his all for his dream. She kept him on track though, gave him just enough to keep him wanting more without giving him so much that it would distract him. She also shot down all those trolls and assholes.

My second time through, Miho was my second favorite character. My first ofcourse being Eiji. No one is as bad ass as Eiji.

---

Also as far as Nisekoi pairings are concerned. I've come to the realization that Chitoge is probably not fit for a relationship. Onodera could probably use a tsundere boyfriend, like Keima from TWGOK. Haru, Tsugumi, and Marika had waaay more chemistry with Raku than either of the main heroines.

I remember laughing at people who actually thought Ranma 1/2 was going to end up differently than it did...at least from a romantic standpoint. It was obvious from the get-go.

Ditto Nisekoi. The only question was about the journey. This was always the story of Raku and Chitoge, and the journey of where they would end up. It would've been shocking for them NOT to have ended up together. I adore Onodera, but aside from being a bad cook, she's perfect, and loves Raku, but doesn't realize that he loves her...and he doesn't realize that she loves him. Where's the story there? Or rather, where's the journey for that romance? If at the end of the day, all you need is one of them to confess to the other, it emphasizes how pointless the entire story was. It's like when Google Maps goes insane every now and then, especially if you change its original route, and has you going for miles on a trip next door.

Instead we have the romantic journey of Raku and Chitoge. Onodera and the other girls? They're just created to get in the way and provide spice for that journey. As to the other girls: Well, the author knows who Raku ends up with. To make the other girls believable romantic rivals, he then had to work hard to make you fall in love with those other characters to keep you guessing, and, ideally, fool you.

Now, Onodera's fans will say: "But she's perfect!" Exactly. Yes, she's an Earthly angel, but that's her problem: She's too perfect. In the real world, maybe we pick the rarity of an angel like Onodera, but this is a work of fiction.

OP: You've got it wrong, yet you're close. "Fragile" is the wrong word and concept. You've followed that thread to a logical conclusion, except it's taken you to the wrong destination. It's not about Raku needing to rescue the most fragile of the girls. Take down the deadend you've erected there and your logical conclusion is that Raku is going to marry Chitoge out of sympathy.

No. Chitoge wins because she's imperfect...and hence, the most like a real female of the girls who are in this manga. If there's a stereotype being filled, that's it.
