I'm so happy the anime portrayed that bitch as the slut she is.
From all the girls she is by far the worst of them all. She is so fucking lucky that Ichijou is a nice guy who still respects her bitch ass and does shit to make her happy even though she doesnt do anything back for her.
I really hope the author of the manga realizes how bad he fucked up when he decided which one of the girls would be the main one and just kills chitoge by having a gang of japanese rapists fuck her and give her all kinds of STD's to kill her.
TACHIBANA FOR BEST GIRL
>hoping the first who appears slut won't win
>thinking the dysfunctional product will win
much troll. very rustle. wow.
Poor Onodera she is going to be full on suffering now he with Chitoge for the next 3 years.
The ED was nice.
onoderafag pls go
chitoge is 2nd after Tsugumi
>first who appears slut
More like the only one.
All the other girls are cute and even though the tomboy is also aggresive atleast she is not a dumb slut like chitoge.
I never liked chitoge , I always skip the chapters about her
I like chitoge
>I say Tachibana is my favourite girl
>Calls me onodera fag
Of course, Onodera is by far much better than this slut but Tachibana is so perfect that none of the other girls have any kind of chance of beating her.
But of course, she is a secondary character so tough luck for her, she is going to die a virgin.
She is incredibly disrespectful
She is highly aggresive towards Ichijou
Yes, the guy SHE likes
She is an aggresive type tsundere who's only good point is her physical appearance because she looks like a super model, which makes sense because she also has the brains of a super model.
Could you tell me why do you like her?
The Chitoge in the oneshot.
You seem mad. Not that I really care about this piece of shit series, but she is the best girl.
I can smell your rotten vagina from here.
What made the oneshot and I guess first couple of chapters fun was that they were both shitheads to each other. They're also the only two with anything resembling chemistry in this dreck.
Chitoge is like Asuka. She's the worst girl personality wise, but she's the most attractive.
Fuck "Not chemistry at all." They have best chemistry out of all the other sluts.
Marika best girl She's the only one who actually cares about MC.
Yeah, what a slut.
She even says she hates him!
Marika is pretty okay too, but Chitoge's nowhere near as bad as you say. Kirino, Masuzu, etc. Trust me, Chitoge's on the sweet end if anything.
Kosaki a uberbest
Ruri x Sunohara OTP
Hahaha, right mate. She's ok as a character but that's not even a girl.
Kosaki best. Always best. Marika second best right there.
Ruri for Maiko-kun~
>I'm so happy the anime portrayed that bitch as the slut she is.
Just like all the doujins or her and Tsumugi.
this is hard.
why is he so Yuno
fuck noand his name is shoe
tsugumi X shu is better anyway
You need to stop self-inserting. It isn't healthy for you.
I'm new to this show and this series in general
what subs should I go with?
should I read the manga first?
You're kind is not allowed here.
>implying this is a floor thread
Run. There is only grief ahead.
Get away from it while you can. Despair is all you will face with this shit fucking series. Don't let Shaft tempt you
It's single handedly top tier. Don't listen to trashtalkers
Crossover art when?
This was surprisingly fun. Made me laugh a few times. I wasn't shafted. Will keep watching.
I can already imagine how delicious her genuine deredere moments are going to be.
>mfw all you hear is snake whenever onodera speaks
Now you will hear snake even as you read the mango
>ClariS at the end
Not really, I don't automatically associate HanaKana with Snake.
Whenever I hear her voice, the first thing that pops into my mind is Kanade from AB or Akane from Psycho-Pass.
I barely remember her ever being dere even in the manga. The only progress their relationship made is that at some point she finally admitted to herself that she likes him. See >>100054383
The series is obviously trash and even the author knows it's thrash, but he so does not give a fuck. He's having fun and so am I.
I thought Shaft was going to fuck this up even more, glad to see they didn't bring ALL their style into this.
I think not.
I remember one of the popularity polls where Tachibana was something like third place and there was a thank you for some guy who apparently posted several hundred votes for her.
I was being retarded. Really retarded.
I forgive you anon.
>Hating the best girl
Holy shit, I bet you like Chitoge too.
Actually I like everyone equally, with her as exception.
Best girl is Minidera, though they're all really good.
How long until derederedere?
You mean Onodera-imouto? Please no.
Minidera is wonderful. Please no bully.
So you like:
-Generic Tsundere #619284728 who can't fucking present herself to Ichijo without knocking him a block away
-Besutu Furendo who is too chicken to do ANYTHING herself without Ruri
-2nd best girl in reverse trap Tsugumi who has identity problems
-The worst fucking atrocity within this manga in Haru, Onadera's sister.
Yep. Makes sense because you can't appreciate the hardwork Tachibana actually put in to get Raku to reciprocate her love.
Meanwhile you like generic clingy Deredere, your point?
Such a shitty adoptation. Meh, back to manga.
That whole misunderstanding and prince charming bit with Onodera's sister just makes me want to shoot someone. Preferably the author.
As if the manga is any better.
Shaft stile is getting old. After reusing it for 100th time its just not fun anymore. Especially for the show that would do better without it.
Holy shit how much do you samefag?
I've seen "adoptation" multiple times in all Nisekoi threads.
>Another romance about a fake relationship blossoming into a real one
These stories really are getting tiresome
Clearly English spelling is also getting old.
Then stop watching them?
I actually fucking hate Marika. I fucking hate the sick girl trope where you're supposed to feel bad for her because she was bedridden and may or may not die like clannad girl.
Thanks for your insightful input.
Quite a bit, they don't bother changing their posts every season.
I'm a SHAFT addict though
First anime I've dropped this season good job SHAFT.
I didn't think this was very funny in the manga, but it was hilarious in the anime. Thank god for this great cast of VAs.
You're not supposed to feel bad for her, but to love how cute she is.
I actually like these kinds of stories, what are some other goods ones?
What's the average length per chapter
That was pretty shitty. Witchcraft works looks better for fuck sake.
I hate people who use the word trope.
You'd think they noticed at some point what shit they're writing.
Chitoge is such a qt
I hate people who hate people
This episode was chapter 1, but chapter 1 is about 50 pages and the average is about 20.
>shitty amnesia plot
>acknowledging how shitty a development it is
Holy fuck, when will shit writers realize this doesn't make it any better, but makes you even more of a scum sucking piece of shit?
I think it's actually the OP. It has an OP feel and it wouldn't surprise me if Shaft just put it at the end instead of the ED.
>implying the Blonde will win
This will have an open ending if anything, no girl will win or lose.
Why? It's not like they're looking for discussion, they just want to fill the threads and make people angry.
At this point Silverlink is better SHAFT than SHAFT. This was pretty shity.
Ruri is the best girl. The rest are irrelevant.
Best girl will never win ;_;
Halfway through the first episode but had to stop to write a theory down.
MC was asking "what kind of environment Chitigoe came from to act like this" while walking around in his Yakuza house. There's also a new gang around.
So putting one and one together - Chitoge also lives together with a Yakuza gang. Thoughts?
I am not sure i`ll be able to watch whole season of it. I like the manga, but anime art is just too off puting. Plus, the first season felt tedious and boring - cant pin point what exactly is wrong with direction, it just seemed not as fun as manga and off.
>Chitoge also lives with another gang
That's actually extremely prevalent in the story, even if you consider the fact that the story itself is mostly irrelevant in the manga.
This is worse than Medaka Box adaptation.Thats some achivement.
Why would you stop in the middle of the episode to post about something happening in the second half of the episode?
Pretty impressive for you to say that after one episode.
Did I say impressive? I meant stupid.
We got answer on question "what will SHAFT do when Monogatari ends?"
It`ll do more Monogatari. The problem is, eventually it`ll get old.
Well, the episode looked pretty impressive.
Did i said impressive? I meant stupid. SHAFT totally perverted it and made look disgusting by applying its usual visual and direction quirks where they were absolutely not necessary
Because he wants to show us how smart he is by guessing something that's going to happen.
How many doujins can we expect.
DC III was better shaft adoptation of nisekoi than Nisekoi
Oh it actually happened. I didn't think they were gonna resolve it in the very first episode.
This is why you always finish the episode before posting.
I'm reminded of a certain blonde-haired bitch when I see this smile.
I'm amazed at just how much Shaft shines out into Nisekoi, oh man.
It looks like I'm the only one who's had a positive impression of this show so far.
Best girl Chitoge just keeps on getting better.
Most people did. The ones complaning are people who prefer other girls to Chitoge.
>there are people who actually believe Chitoge won't win
The difference is DC III anime is with SHAFT staff but without Shinbo - actual creative peopel behind stuff like Hidamari, EF etc. Now those people work on Sakura Trick this season.
And Nisekoi is Shinbo-shit, which is litterally the worst shit: all creative staff that helped evolving of current SHAFT style left, and now he basically tries to emulate it, but without taste
The first thing that pops into my mind is a picture of HanaKana. Am I weeb enough already?
Sakura Trick is the best SHAFT show this season. Nourine is the second best.
Did anyone talented even stay in SHAFT?
What the heck is with the girl uniforms in this series? With the tie that goes under the skirt?
Why does MC have criss-cross bobbypins in his hair? That's the trendy thing girls would do when I was in middle school.
No, Shinbo chased everyone out. Only Inu Curry remains
I like these kind of stories though. The leads usually have very good chemistry when it's done right.
>Sakura Trick is the best SHAFT show this season
The first 60 or 70 chapters of nisekoi are okay,but then it becomes shit,literally shit
Its made by ex SHAFT staff. So is Nourin this season.
A lot of people left for Silverlink, Deen and others
Why'd so many leave? I'd have thought with all that Madogatari money the animators' wages would've increased.
No one wants to work with Shinbo. Its a sinking ship.
Hate Shinbo. No artistic freedom. No money, horrible production schedule and atmosphere.
SHAFT got lots of cash recently, but still low on staff - outsorcing pretty much everything.
Well this show doesn't look too bad I wonder what it's abou-
>Raku Ichijou is an average high school student
>Ten years ago, Raku made a promise
>Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him
>Then one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku's class
Jesus fucking christ
At least watch it before complaining about it you faggot.
>a sinking ship
Making money like a motherfucker and he's a sinking ship? Care to explain?
It's a comedy. It mocks the cliches
Most people associate "shaft" style with Shinbo, but its wrong. Silverlink and others length doing the same and even better.
Most of what we call "shaft" style is not shinbo`s invention - and many people responsible length left. Shinbo`s actual stile is most evident in Soul Taker, and nearest modern show exposing it is Vampire Bund
In the manga they call MC "Bocchan". What's that mean
So it's a DECONSTRUCTION of harem shows then?
It's a romcom deconstruction
too busy trying to look like he has good taste
i don't think so
there's no feeling of mocking in the manga, it plays the tropes straight while at the same adding more or just making tiny changes to fit the setting
sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, but it has the feeling of sincerity to it and nothing of the vile negativity of mocking or parody
Aniplex is making money. SHAFT is still a slavery ship with horrible work conditions and low pay.
Before Bakemonogatari they were pretty much broke, now they have a lot more financial, but not actual human resources. Everything is outsourced to other studios and lots of freelancers, few shaft animators overworked to death.
People just dont enjoy working there and under strict Shinbo tirany, name of SHAFT basically is associated with one kind of visuals/anime and franckly, not everyone enjoys making the same shit over and over.
However SHAFT has potential to grow now, hiring new staff and expanding. But still in very shaky situation. As it stands now, producers just use SHAFT as a marketing label.
This is weird. Shaft doing Nisekoi feels weird.
MC reminds of of Yuno. Please no. Didn't think it before now, even though I read almost 94 chapters of the manga before dropping it.
> wingman shu
> angry banana
> deredere nadeko
> gorilla kanon
imma watching this just for the voices.
People used to say that, but then it became what it originally made fun of.
Or it never made fun of them in the first place and its a generic fucking harem
Marika is the best girl
Anyone who disagrees is a faggot
Marika a best.
Is this because everything SHAFT does is a total crapshot?
Chitoge best and I'm a faggot
Considering people that left are responsible for what you call "crapshot" , unlikely the reason
Hidamari, Ef, Bakemonogatari, Maria Holic, Arakawa, SZS - all kind of people left
They were involved in all of the projects, so quality of said projects can not be complaint, as it wsa their responsibility.
Oushi is still in SHAFT, and he made Bakemonogatari. That counts for something. Its just Shinbo that`s shit.
Animation was slick, designs beautiful, voices good.
Not much to dislike really, pretty good opening episode. 7/10.
Please can we have some progression in the manga
What ch. you think this'll be adapted to
I meant, their working conditions are perpetually shit because it's too risky to actually give them resources.
It'll end with the Romeo and Juliet arc.
How come theres only horriblesubs
another AotS without contest, as expected of Shaft.
Why is your kind still here.
The get was yesterday.
Please leave already
He is Yuno's child.
How? It's exactly the same as before.
Why was everything moving around so much in this episode? I thought this was Shaft?
>SHAFT is obligated to one style of animation
This, after Monogatari, I just want a Hana Kana character that wins for once.
Oh god not this shit again
I'm reading the manga as well and I've never liked gorilla but that fucking SZS reference in the anime gave her a few points in my book.
SHAFT PLEASE MORE SZS.
Chitoge's dumb moe makes my heart hurt. She's so cute
If she doesn't win here, she will definitely win in shaft's next anime, which doesn't even have love triangles.
She wins the Seki kun although we can enjoy her losing multiple times this season. Anyway she is old and busted,Nao Touyama is the new hotness.
>In any anime
>Under any studio
They really managed to make the animu designs damn cute. I hope they manage to stay on model like this.
She wins the Mushi uta
As a manga reader, I fucking loved the anime as well. It kept the humor of the manga, and had some great SHAFT style as well, awesome animation all around since Aniplex was involved. SHAFT really went all out on this one, I think they animated this better than the Monogatari series, I guess they're really hoping on this getting big as well.
Was thinking this didn't feel very Shaft-y and then
season 2 never
I liked that they added this. It was pretty funny.
She's dull as a door knob, but such a cutie pie.
Ok yeah, what the fuck. Pretty sure the school didn't look like that in the manga
Honestly, I don't mind the style as much this time, but the outrageous backgrounds and setting I'd rather do without. I have a pretty good impression of Raku's house and school, so this was weird.
I don't see a problem. I'll take Shaft's art deco schools over the standard moonland design any day of the week.
Huh,I thought I was the only one who watched the thing.
Jesus christ, this is Embarrassment: The Manga. I'm guessing it doesn't get any better
Barely, but not more than one or two chapters. And it's mainly those that are focused on anyone that isn't Ichijou, Chitoge or Onodera.
Did anyone else find it odd that none of Raku's Shaft cooking was what they actually had for breakfast?
Not really no. The whole "Avoid a gang war" thing is dropped for the most part and it instead becomes your super generic harem series. Your average chapter becomes "character(s) going to school or doing some other mundane task"
Don't waste your time on that
>used goods like me wouldn't even sell at a clearance sale
I mean, the gang aspect really is never brought up aside from Tsugumi's off-hand comments, so either Komi forgot about it altogether and has yet to remember it or he dropped it on purpose
Oh well. Is there anyone else introduced or is it just Chitoge and Onodera
In the "harem" I mean
Even Shaft couldn't save this awful series.
It's fun though, so enjoy the ride.
i like the SOL direction the manga went to, it does it well
>black&white film with subtitles
What the fuck
There's others, though Chitoge and Onodera are the only serious contenders. Think Lala and Haruna, but without the harem option, at least for now.
Stupid sexy Raku. He should drop the manlet head ornament though.
There's Chitoge (daughter of the Yakuza's rival gang's boss), Onodera (the childhood friend and actualy object of MC's affections), Marika (Daughter of the Chief of Police who is batshit insane and batshit in love with MC.), Tsugumi (Chitoge's busty bodyguard from the US who is something of a tomboy who also has feelings for MC), Then there's Haru (Onodera's younger sister who is in love with a boy who takes her to the infirmary after she passes out during her first day of high school, who is none other than MC who she fucking hates because he likes her sister and because she doesn't know he was the one who saved her), and Paula (a hitman from the US in Haru's class who has the mentality of an 8-year old)
Why is Nisekoi so fucking shit?
Is the locket Onodera's? And if it is why the fuck did she ditch the superior long hair?
Eat shit. Hairclips are manly as fuck.
I was also thinking SHAFT made Raku way fabulous. Especially that shot where he was on the ground after Chitoge threw him the locket.
The locket is everyone's
is the manga really that shit?
Don't listen to what your friend Ramon tells you.
Yes,if you don't take it seriously
>TACHIBANA FOR BEST GIRL
I just remembered that HanaKana's love interest in Inu x Boku SS also wears a hair ornament.
I wondered if this was a parody at first, there were so many clichés.
But the artwork was nice. Hopefully the story won't bore or annoy too much.
who would win in a cooking battle, Shirou or this guy?
>49 chapters for anything to develop
Dodging this bullet
> annoy too much.
Huh, sorry. Did you say something? I think I dozed off for a second or two.
she will win the shu
Posting better RomCom, which actually follows the plot.
And still no anime adaptation.
Inside the locket, there is a photo of everyone smiling and a message : Friends forever.
Onedara confesses and win
DAL General please leave.
I like all the Kaiji references.
FUCK. I was looking forward to this too.
Chitoge is a massive pile of excrement.
But Shoe is working on her
I see mixed reactions in here.
Not sure if I should pick this.
It's cute, and cringeworthy at parts. It's a giant pile of cliches and fun.
It won't be in the anime.
Chitoge is best girl, America agreed. Hating Chitoge is hating freedom
Furthermore by not being popular in Japan, we also know that she's best girl, because Japan has shit taste.
Anime won't be reaching that far. That's a really far away chapter from what the anime will even be touching.
>but it's fun
You fags keep saying this. I'm not seeing it.
It just seems really annoying.
That ranking is all kinds of fucked up.
It depends on how you perceive fun.
How do you perceive it?
>why the fuck did she ditch the superior long hair?
Every time this happens, I die inside.
Eh, will they eventually adapt the whole thing, or I'm better off just reading the mango?
This would be a pretty nice point to end the series on, if they want to stop at a semi-open point in the story.
There's over 100 chapters already, unless this sells well, they won't be touching even a smidget of what's already out.
Why are Chitoge and Tsugumi dressed like turbosluts?
Shitoge a semen demon
Onodore best girl, also has best seiyuu.
Get rekt shitogefags
But Shitoge is the purest
Dress to impress.
Dat fucking tune
How many times do I have to suffer through this type of shit
maybe you should stop reading this shitty series
Must be hard being a faggot shipper.
For the rest of the series.
Is it even possible to ship in a harem
are you in denial or just retarded?
Hint shippers have no limit
Is this how kisses normally are
Is there a point? The reason most anime exist is to increase manga sales. Whats the point of getting invested in the story if its shit
Because cute girls and a non serious plot.
the girl with the most screentime is a huge bitch though
You mean perfect and the best character.
She's a good girl who's a little bit over-sheltered damnit
no, i mean a huge bitch and annoying and a very generic character as well
i don't care
dat newfag doe
if you dont hear mikan everytime she speaks you're a shit
I'm sorry that you have crippling brain damage, but I guess that'd stop you from enjoying most shows.
You seem to have successfully managed to delude yourself in believing that you're less a piece of shit than the other shippers.
She comfort fucks Onodera when she loses.
man, that's rather mean and unnecessary.
why are you so defensive over such a terrible character?
Because I have to defend adorable things
You anon's don't get it,...
Marika>Tsugumi>Onodera>Slut Teacher who NTR'd Ichijou's buddy=Shit>Chitoge
>Now is where the real love story begins!!
60 chapters later and there has still barely been any development in these two's relationship. Fuck this guy, I really wish he had followed more closely to the damn oneshot than what it turned into.
The saddest part about the amnesia mini-arc was that it was actually more interesting and advanced the overall plot more than most of the other recent chapters.
that's so dumb.
i mean what that page is basically saying
>oh man, now that she's not beating me up and keeping her fucking mouth shut, she's really hot! i forgot!
there's cute girls every where in anime, and not all of them are so shallow.
It's done well and lasted only 3 chapters and advanced the plot.
It's funny how all those bipolarfags always manage to forget about teh crapload of obnoxious stuff their favorite character is pulling most of the time.
I'm glad you can read the obvious context
why do you like her then
It's what makes her moments all the more cute
It all boils down to
>If she was someone completely different than she actually is, she would be ok.
Greatest love story ever told.
Is that where they're trapped in a shed or whatever, and he was going to climb through the window to open the door?
Yeah and they were going to kiss
What a foul mouth and unladylike gesture. Typical murrican trash.
What a likable and lovely girl.
>Raised by gangsters
Gangsters have to be witty to be likable. She isn't.
I actually like Ichijou
Contrast is kinda the whole point you turboautist.
First air day and the trolling and shitposting of waifu wars is as high as ever. Expected, but still disappointing and ugly to see.
Guess I'll just stay away from most Nisekoi threads and love the only real best girl by myself alone.
>It's a shame to see waifu wars about a harem
Shut up nerd
He said that whenever a character acts like pure cancer most of the time, the moment said character acts in a somewhat remotely normal manner, it's enjoyable.
Is everybody watching HorribleSubs?
i kinda want him to answer
There's no sub groups yet
The other guy was right.
Because being civil is taboo here.
FFF is doing Nisekoi.
then why not watch/read a series where the characters are enjoyable all the time or something
They don't exist
Ruri > Marika = Mimiko > Chitoge > Kosaki > Seishirou
>Buy the BDs!
Because my definition of enjoyable is different.
I find "nice" characters in fiction a snoozefest. Dickish characters and the ones with development are more entertaining to watch, however.
Kitano is so fucking cute goddamn.
dickish characters are fine if they're interesting
what's interesting about her? when she'll stop being a bitch?
>Not reading/watching it only for the cute reactions faces
What's wrong with you guys?
i can just come here for those
I only said that in response to "It's funny how all those bipolarfags always manage to forget about teh crapload of obnoxious stuff their favorite character is pulling most of the time".
I know nothing of Chitoge.
I love both SHAFT and Nisekoi (yeah, even the latest chapters), but I'm quite disappointed. This style doesn't fit the show at all, first I though they could make it work if they did something like in Denpa Onna, that show had the SHAFT feel, but it didn't shoved in your face every two seconds.
Best girl right here
then how would you know if it even applies?
You could just use these threads.
2nd best after Ruri.
Why is anime so unrealistic?
She's pretty close to the MC, and America is pretty far, what are you saying
I have some of self-respect.
Well, someone has to make them.
Not me, that's for sure.
Where we are again?
The last thing we have here on 4chan is self-respect.
Yeah, I guess so then.
But if self-respect stopped people from here to watch this kind of animu, we sure wouldn't have "who is the best waifu" threads.
Can't wait for that scene when they fall in the pool.
I can't wait till the locker scene
>fang on Onodera.
What the hell is this artist doing?
The only thing I liked was that Final Fantasy IX like music. Also, I hope that pic related was just a SZS reference and not something that's going to happen all the time.
I liked the episode. But then again, I like the manga too. I feel that it's surpassing Hayate no Gotoku as a comedy manga when Hayate was at it's best, and that's years ago.
I like that Shaft is doing the show, but I think that not everything Shaft makes is gold. Looking forward to wathing this season.
>Getting upset over references
Is that Kenshiro?
Wasn't there suppose to be an anime only character for Nisekoi? That girl with the swirly glasses right?
Again, I don't mind if it was just a reference, I just don't want it to become a regular part of the show.
LE SHINBO FACE
Why would it happen all the time? Arakawa had a reference to SZS too.
Mimiko Kiki, she has kind of appeared in the manga too. Top left. She has orange hair.
So, watch or avoid?
Is Paula part of his harem?
And in another page.
Really? I thought she only appears in the anime info pages that have been in almost every issue of WSJ for the past few months
Why don't you watch the first episode and decide for yourself?
Because I'm allergic to shit. And it might be.
Read the thread and choose by yourself.
Well if you don't like Shafted adaptations, stay away.
Just watch it, if you like it you like it. Stop being complicated.
So is this NTR the anime, or what
After nagi no fishsticks, my hearts cant take anymore
That's why I said kind of.
Not in the story, but we got her backstory in that character relation page and on that cover.
There's no NTR here,what are you talking about
I don't think you know what NTR means.
If you think it's shit, you're welcome to leave.
Chitoge won is the main heroine, there will be no NTR, she'll win like she won in the oneshot.
So I liked the anime and decided to marathon the manga. 40 chapters in there are now too many girls and no plot is resolved...
You really don't read it for the plot.
You really should read it on a weekly basis I guess.
I'm having way too much fun with this show.
>still no "ur a fgt" edit on the note yet
You begin to get really confused with marathoning it. Pace yourself
But at this rate, they're going to bring some girls back from the dead, and they'll all have keys to keep this manga going. I just want something like Koe no Katachi.
+owns cake shop
-sucks at cooking
-short hair with weird long strand
-boring overall personality
+cute blue eyes
+black thigh highs
-may get violent (a plus to some)
Great, another SHAFT anime where the only character I like is the protagonist, while the girls are all average.
Do we know how many episodes is this going to be? I might stick with it if it's 1-cour.
Onodera is bigger than Chitoge.
>Does a muscle up like it's no ones business
>doesn't wear a stupid bow
>wears a stupid bow
Is it me or did that one song at the end sound like a song from Majora's Mask. I think I recognize the song from the scene where Onodera is telling MC that he shouldn't forget the promise.
>Do we know how many episodes is this going to be?
If you know anything about SHAFT whatsoever, this question is retarded.
Shut up, it's cute. It makes her look she has bunny ears.
Still Left and i dont really like onodera, his sister is way better. The Gorila is too violent, fake and dont care about other people, she would be alone if she wasnt the fake gf of the MC
you kiss your sister with that mouth son?
Well now I feel dumb.
Why do their good shows only get a single cour?
Seriously? Well, fuck it then.
3 Episodes rule to see if it actually gets better then.
-not that hot
-super hot holy shit
I'm still waiting for moar Denpa onna or Machiga Mawatteiru.
If only her bow wasn't so fucking giant
both of them are shit, one is way too timid and cant even see someone in the face without blush, and the other have deep traumas about domestic violence and she solves everything with violence.
Big bows are cute
Hey, you forgot to mention
>Wow, what a fucking huge bitch.
+would let her blow me
+would let her do anything she wants to me
you talkin shit
Onodera won't win because it's a HanaKana role.
Chitoge is a classic example of absolute bitch in the streets, innocent and heart attack inducing in the sheets.
A little harsh
But Marika is best girl always
I'm going to fap to Chitoge tonight.
No matter what you say they're both equal, competition wise.
I'm right around the corner from this chapter, please tell me it's good.
I'm not understanding why you guys argue so much about the girls.
As an anime only fag, they're both shit so far. Does Raku gets better?
Raku is the fucking man
>I don't get why you guys argue so much about the girls in a harem series
Raku is pretty decent for a harem MC
I liked him.
They're going to cut out SOO much shit from the manga. The series has literally lost any direction and is pretty much a slice-of-life now.
You have to read the manga. More generic girls come in.
He is shitty dense harem MC number 2378472321. His interactions are funny but other than that he is pure shit
>This guy isn't a masochist
Your loss pall
>Liking femdom means you're beta
Shitty generic harem protagonist. He was actually a decent character in the one-shot.
KOSAKI STRONGEST AND BEST REACTIONS
One-shot > All
That looks somewhat TM.
FUCK, Google upgraded captcha again.
That's it, posting on 4chan just got insufferable. Bye.
Though I do want Onodera to win, I wouldn't mind the other bitch winning either, even though I fucking hate her.
>At the end
It's been playing since the start, and yes, I instantly remembered it.
Go to 00:23
This is more like it
1 or 2 cour adaption with the ending from the one shot
DO IT SHINBOU, IT'LL THEN BE BETTER THAN THE MANGA
>He is shitty dense harem MC
At least he has feelings for at least one girl. Known feelings.
And a lot easier to stand.
Onodera and Ruri can get together when she loses.
What? He wasn't bad. Who the hell do you consider a good MC? If you say Kenshiro, I'll blow my top.
We've seen Chitoge's Mom
That is literally the future you choose if you choose her
Fuck that noise
Making delicious cake with my waifu Onodera all day, errryday
The Shaft style is kinda strange here and I don't like it but hopefully it'll just seem fine after an episode or two.
Also Chitoge is best girl, followed closely by Imotoudera
fuck you all
4th key girl is best girl
I assume you mean Onodera imouto (the bst girl)
Why don't you go make a Best Key Girl thread then.
Marry Older Sister
Imouto for mistress
Shameless sex with Momodera
>Nee-chan walks in on you with imouto
Tell her this is how you express your familial love, and that she should join us; so that we can all express our love.
>dad joins in
Nisekoi is a giant pile of shit.
The one-shot had a decent premise, executed it fairly well and was pleasant overall. It wasn't the most mindblowing thing in the world, but it was a cute little idea that had potential if it was expanded on.
The serialized manga fucks it all up from the beginning by introducing another love interest, making it glaringly clear the mangaka doesn't give a fuck about the one-shot in favour of love triangle bullshit. The basic premise is still there, but Onodera's presence throws off the focus of the of the main two, which was what made it good. Basically, Onodera's existence as a character doomed it from the getgo. Of course, more and more girls are introduced, who are largely pointless and serve only as harem fodder.
you yell BAKA ECHHI HENTAI! and cover yourself and throw stuff at her just as she would do
>Grandfather joins in
>RIPIP in pieces
The plot is beyond stupid. The serialized manga sort of keeps the whole childhood friend thing, but fucks with it so that over half of the girls in the MC's harem are also his childhood friends. Then there's the lock and key, one of the most mind-numblingly retarded plot points I've ever seen. I mean, alone it's stupid, but how it's handled is just the fucking worst. When the characters manage to not be bumbling morons and actually get together and check their keys, one of them FUCKING BREAKS IN THE LOCK. It's just one of the multiple contrived moments in this garbage that's used to keep the train running for as long as possible.
THere's just so many shitty aspects to this manga. The ridiculous use of cliches and stock harem scenarios, chapters upon chapters of NOTHING, even more shitty characters like Onodera's sister, how the mangaka is deathly afraid of any sort of plot advancement, it just goes on and on. The last time I found it even remotely enjoyable was during the Christmas chapters, and I dropped it shortly after when there was a span of like two or three months where each chapter was MC and a lucky harem member who got to be the spotlight for the week.
tl;dr Nisekoi is shit and you are lower than dirt if you like it.
fuck off shitoge fag
A lock that opens to many keys is a slut.
tl;dr raku is slut material
What, can't deal with the fact that Nisekoi was better when it wasn't harem garbage?
Not going to even get a thank you from this faggot? Did he even see it? Did my precious remembering skills go to WASTE?!
Kirisaki best girl other sluts need not apply.
Doing good is its own reward.
Asking for thanks is unvirtuous.
But it was the proudest moment of my life. I never thought I could remember a nostalgic track whenhearing its similar in anime.
And the Nisekoi wars has begun, please god help us.
Since when does CR have endcards?
SHAFT shows tend to
Sorry, I took a little nap. Yeah, I remember now too, thanks
But CR rips don't ever have endcards.
Do you know where the other song is from though?
wait, what amnesia arc, what happend?
didn't read that far yet.
Is this a new pasta?
First time i've seen it.
Also, the oneshot was pretty godtier at what it wanted to do.
If they adapted that shit into a movie i'd totally buy a bd of that shit.
The whole nisekoi "series" is the authors pent up rage and backlash because nips didn't like it when he made another, actually decent series.
Japs really do have shit taste.
This is already the 3rd color wars anime just this season.
>The whole nisekoi "series" is the authors pent up rage and backlash because nips didn't like it when he made another, actually decent series.
Ironic shitty manga writing is still shitty manga writing.
I never said it wasn't. Nisekoi is shit.
The weird backlash against nisekoi is confusing to me. It'd be different if there was any legit hype, but it's such an overlooked series in the first place.
Anyhow, Nisekoi's one-shot was fun as a sort of genre exercise for Naoshi, but it really felt like the weakest of his one-shots. I still don't get why it was the one thing that got serialized. Williams or Koi no Kami-sama would have made better serial titles. That or if we had just gotten to keep Double Arts.
Ugh. Don't remind me.
>Why was nisekoi the one serialized
Because it was the one that would have made more money. And have gotten an anime out of.
I really don't get where people see the "pent up rage" idea. He's clearly just kissing ass with the editors. It would only make sense that he suddenly drop all his usual themes and sense of style to do something generic if he was doing it to gain favors. A popular author is more likely to make it to the end of his first year of serialization than a nobody, and after Double Arts I'm sure he doesn't want to risk investing himself in another serial just to have it canned. So he's playing things by the books to show he can make money, to make himself known with an audience, so that when Nisekoi ends he'll have the trust of the publishers to do what he wants and be both unique, interesting, and a healthy financial investment. In the first place the fact that he's been so deadset on publishing in Jump and no where else has been a weird hurdle when he's normally so relationship focused as a writer.
really Nisekoi seems more like a sad plea for help than an embittered spiteful sorta thing.
I feel like Komi went all out on the one-shot, then when it got picked up he was all "oh fuck didn't think that one through" and had to introduce more characters and has now shot himself in the foot
seems more like "fuck it, I'll just sell out completely" to me.
That's another thing. I can't help but shake the feeling the turning it from the one-shot's romcom premise into an outright harem series was someone else's idea.
>He has to make shit that people eat up for years and on before he can finally make the real manga he likes to do
How many mangaka and their respective manga actually fall into this category?
WAT SUBS SHOULD I USE
HorribleSubs if you want to watch it right now.
FFF if you hate Crunchyroll's subbing and don't care about waiting.
I feel that he planned the love triangle.
The other characters that came after that were probably just supposed to be supplementary/support characters.
Seems certain people it would be better if they also ALL fell in love with MC. OH, and give them shits a locket too. That would stir up the readers.
But to what end? If he had wanted to sell out he could have just pitched a more easily marketable one-shot in the first place.
It's sorta the reverse but I think Nobuhiro Watsuki did that with Busou Renkin
Being serialized in WSJ is a really big deal. Even if the premise of what work of theirs gets accepted is something super retarded like power level food battles, most mangaka would jump at the chance.
obviously, but that wasn't the point. The point was that if he was only aiming at serialization at any cost, again, he could have done that more easily. but he persisted in trying to be himself and write what he wanted to write instead. That's not exactly what I'd call a "fuck it, I'll just sell out completely" attitude.
One-shots are about presenting interesting concepts that can catch the attention of readers (and editors). Retooling them into things that can become long-running series comes later.
"Fuck it, I'll sell out completely" came when Nisekoi was accepted and he went along with editorial's plan to make it into the most generic harem ever.
The love triangle was definitely planned out when it was serialized. It was a way to expand the one-shot and extend it into a serialization by adding in an extra love interest.
I think it was when Tsugumi became a MAIN love interest instead of just a side love interest (like Paula and Imoutodera) was when the author sold out.
Man I really liked that episode. Chitoge was a real cutie, good show.
I think we've been agreeing and just not communicating well. I've been saying that a total sell out would have been accepting his fate and giving up on doing his own thing in the long run, in which case I see Nisekoi as being a stepping stone toward a goal he's not yet given up. I think you're just saying that in the short term, he gave up on making Nisekoi work, and yeah I'd agree to that. Frankly it feels like he tried to end it a few times already. The sudden and jarring moments in the plot where the locket broke, and later when they got it back and then just never talked about it for a number of chapters feels like he was trying to move things toward some closure, or at least closure of that particular plot element, and someone pointed him in a different direction at the last minute.
Didn't read the manga. About to watch the first episode and report back to you homosexuals with my opinion (as if you cared). Wish me luck.
Enjoy your avante-garde Shinbo style.
Welcome to waifu war 2014
brought to you by shaft anime studio.
First rule of the war
If a blond to yellowbrown tsundere appears
also known as best girl
We will have a winner and everyone that does not like her will suffer.
The War is already over
god damn, shaft never ceases to amaze me with their direction and the sheer number of different places and ways they will find excuses to not have to animate things. It'd almost seem minimalist if it weren't clearly just lazy recycling of the same dozen tricks over and over in every show.
I wrote that on the spot.
it was a joke. a jab at your expense. it's a common way of implying that your complaints resemble generic and intentionally farcical statements and logic. he was calling you an idiot.
what the fuck did they do to the school?
judging by that walk down the hallway with Onodera, the whole school is littered with reality fissures. taking the merest step in the wrong direction can land you many miles and years away.
They SHAFTed it.
I never realized that Raku wears x hairclips until now.
Now I can't see him without thinking of Yuno.
I didn't really pay attention, what was wrong with the school?
Chitoge is on the sweet end of the bitch scale.
Imoutonodera is going to make you rage
Random changes of scenery. Typical SHAFT creative fuckery.
they arbitrarily designed their own contrived art project instead of just drawing it as a normal looking school the way it was supposed to be
SHAFT has really elaborate schools.
In the manga the school is more mundane.
and more important than it just being "different" is that it just doesn't fit the image or mood of the story
I'm glad I wasn't the only one.
At this point I don't really care.
Nisekoi is pretty generic, the only reason why people read it is because it has occasional really cute moments. The SHAFT shit doesn't bother me because it kind of needs the style.
What does bother me are the scenes where people start walking into the background and end up staying still and walking in place.
There were at least three of those.
>What does bother me are the scenes where people start walking into the background and end up staying still and walking in place.
This was irritating me so much.
THEY'RE WALKING BUT NOT MOVING.
old-school animation money-saving shortcut.
I'm surprised that Shaft made it so noticeable.
I give the first episode a 6/10.
+The animation was nice enough.
+MC doesn't seem too bad.
+Voice acting was okay.
+Don't care much about the plot so far, but it doesn't look any worse than anything else this season
-Main girls are not cute
-Stupid, violent tsundere as the lead again
+MC actually got mad at the FeMC which impressed me
-Other girl, who I guess is the last piece of the triangle, is 20plain40me
-MC wears a super gay hairclip. Holy Christ, will he take it off?
I'll watch the next episode.
>super gay hairclip
>The SHAFT shit doesn't bother me
>What does bother me are the scenes where people start walking into the background and end up staying still and walking in place.
but that is shaftshit. animating as little as possible is what they're notorious for
How is that a blog?
They could have just removed the students entirely from that scene instead of making it so glaringly obvious.
So will there be anything redeemable about Chitoge throughout the whole show? Or will I continue to hate her as much as I do?
Read the manga.
Don't do this >>100088080
well, she does get to be less aggressively unlikable, but she doesn't do much to actively be likeable.
She's one of the two characters to get actual character development (the other is Shu), then remains stagnant like everyone else.
Shaft saves the season. Again.
the other 7 girls all end up being more interesting, except maybe onodera
the manga is 100+ in and there is still the very minimum of romantic development. No one is ever going to confess at this point.
a la Orange Marmalade in slowness, but with comedy
God, is she retarded?
So... what's up with the MC with hair clips?
I'm willing to bet that' you're really really drunk.
Are you retarded?
The story is about two gangs that hate each other with the two heirs pseudo-dating so that the gang members don't kill each other. Also we have 13 year old girls who are ninja hitman who can jump from building to building and are also sharpshooters attending the school. Oh and the heirs live in gigantic mansions (Especially Chitoge) where all of the gang members get free food, and a 17 year old girl gets a private jet for her birthday.
Having them attend a normal school makes LESS sense then having them attend a crazy looking school. It fits the mood and overall plot 10 times better.
Childhood friend loses again
She's easier to stand when she's not with MC
They're all childhood friends though.
But everyone is a childhood friend.
Thats a nice pic of Chitoge.
Wow Chitoge has a nice computer.
Nice one Moot.
>-MC wears a super gay hairclip. Holy Christ, will he take it off?
Never. At least not permanently.
Definitely an odd character design decision.
In this situation, it is impossible for the childhood friend to lose unless Tsugumi end
Why Shaft decided to animate this terribly horrible manga is beyond my imagination. Such a waste of incredible talent and art.
Which one there's like three and maybe a fourth.
>So will there be anything redeemable about Chitoge throughout the whole show? Or will I continue to hate her as much as I do?
Keep in mind that 90% of her tsuntsun this episode was in response to Raku yelling at her. It's mutual tsundere.
They don't mess around with their school architecture in Glorious Nippon.
I can totally understand how it would have made sense in theory. Every harem lead has been a thin dude with short to medium spike black-ish hair, and maybe glasses but usually not. I'm sure the intent was just to give him something to make him recognizable and memorable, it just didn't end up being a positive kind of memorable.
>No one is ever going to confess at this point.
Onodera did, but, well, it's so painful I can't even say it.
>In this situation, it is impossible for the childhood friend to lose unless Tsugumi end
In other words it's impossible.
They were gunpointed?
Wow, those random background changes almost make it impossible to notice how they're just walking in place with the same animation frames over and over.
Oh please anon. Tsugumi's future involves tearfully schlicking to the moans of her first love fucking her best friend while having to appear happy for them. It's set in stone.
Marika did too. I like her because she's the only person who's honest with her feelings.
>it's so painful I can't even say it.
I forgot when that scene was. Are we going to get to that point? I hope so. A second shitstorm would be hilarious.
maybe if they could follow a simple set of instruction and do their job right they'd get offers for better series when it comes to manga adaptations. they only end up with odd balls underdogs and darkhorse titles for a reason, they're cheap and 9 times out of 10 they're shit.
While Nisekoi is shit, it's still really popular and any anime studio would be thrilled to land it.
I guess Shu is pretty honest too considering that he confessed to the teacher which is more than fucking Raku ever did.
I hate that fucking gorilla woman. Why is she such a bitch?
Why does the dude wears Yuno's hair-clip?
It's been stuck in that purgatory of mediocre ratings ever since vol.2 came out.
Rankings in WSJ are mostly meaningless that get shuffled by editorial all the time anyway. What matters is volume sales, and Nisekoi was 30th in 2013. It doesn't sound high, but all the top 30 are really big manga, most of which have had successful anime adaptations.
Can someone better than I shop Chitoge's head onto this?
Is it wrong I still have hope Onodera is gonna win?
She's the only real competition compared to Chitoge.
Both Onodera and Ichijou are love each other, but one slut ruined their relationship.
Fuck you shaft
