Jesus, Running Late, bread, hits the MC vita falling from the sky and Transfer student.
I give up. Someone shoot me.
B-But she's cute.
Welcome to anime. Now fuck off.
The only reason I can see watchin this show is if he ends up with Onodera. I get the feeling this is not going to be a True Tears setup.
>implying he ends up with anyone
Im pretty sure that was implied as a True Tears set up would include him ending up with someone. I guess it just went over your head.
I think this is probably parodying it, it ticks too many boxes.
Really sorry to ruin your fun, but the show is called "Nisekoi", it's obvious from the start who is going to win, and if the fact that she's tsundere didn't ring a bell yet, remember that Kirino won the oreimobowl for the same reason.
Welcome to pain.
You need to keep in mind this is a manga. Manga often do have harem ends so it is still possible that could happen here.
>Manga often do have harem ends
This should be common knowledge by now.
I'm not ruling out that possibility but I personally don't believe it will happen in Nisekoi, atleast not in canon.
I think the end chapter will be Raku pulling off his fucking stupid hairclip and run to save Chitoge from whatever silly situation she's gotten herself into.
For some reason his pendant gets destroyed/broken on the way and Chitoge asks what she's gonna do with the key after she's been saved, but this being an american parody of the story, Raku throws the key away, pulls her close and gives her the frenchie.
All of this while Tsugumi, Marika and Onodera keep away a bunch of mobs exactly like in your shonen mango.
His very friend.
Not in Jump they don't.
To Love Ru isn't in Jump anymore, either, so don't bring it up.
If Onodera has no chance of winning I will drop this on the spot.
I can't put up with this shit anymore.
She's one of the five possible childhood friends who made a promise to MC to marry him when they grow up. Plus I think she already confessed at least twice (and of course Raku didn't hear her both times).
Her chances of winning are dwindling after every new chapter.
Well, I wouldn't say zero chance, since Raku actually likes her and she's been around since the first chapter as a candidate with her key revealed first.... who am I kidding, she has zero chance.
So why does she have a key? Did he just mass produce keys and hand them out to everyone he met for easy dickings later? Thats Arch Villain master minding there.
It wouldn't be interesting if there weren't a gorillion keys. Wait for chapter 521 where new Onee-san archetype girl makes her appearance
Well the good news is:
-Onodera won the first popularity poll
-Nobody has "won" yet, though that's more due to the manga dragging on
-Onodera's received a roughly equal amount of chapters compared to Chitoge
-As of the latest chapter Raku is still "in love" with Onodera.
-It's called "Nisekoi"
-On several occasions where she was supposed to get to be with Raku, Chitoge ends up stealing the limelight.
-While I mentioned they got roughly equal numbers of chapters some of Onodera's can be considered filler where as Chitoge's usually have something to do with the plot.
-Though Raku is still in love with Onodera it really hasn't changed or deepened since the beginning where he's slowly but steadily making progress with Chitoge.
Sweet childhood friends never win.
Into the K-Pop folder it goes.
When I reach my wizardry status I will become the best mangaka ever and write a love story where the childhood friend wins.
They will kill me.
...But all of them are childhood friends.
Does anyone know how many episodes the Anime got greenlit for?
In a lot of the promotional stuff I see Tsugumi and Mari so I had figured it'd get at least far enough for them to be introduced.
Tsumugi and Haru, really.
Paula doesn't count since she's more like an imouto to Raku.
Are you Japanese?
If you answered 'No,' you have no chance of getting it published.
Man, reading this thread makes me want to drop it.
Can childhood friends receive justice in this cruel world?
Doesn't matter, I'll replace my eyes with almonds and get a faggot hairdo.
They won't notice.
The only reason you should be watching it is if you like Shaft's animation gimmicks.
Or if you really like generic harem for some reason.
The toast in the mouth was actually added by Shaft. Because apparently, this wasn't cliché enough.
Childhood friend only wins when she is by far the worst girl.
I'm sure the only reason why most of /a/ still reads Nisekoi is because we just want to see how far it can push the genericness
Not that guy but, I like it.
I have no idea why, I know it's a generic harem, I know that MC is pretty fucking dense, and I know that it'll just keep running on and on until the mangaka is tired of it.
But for some reason, I still eat it up and read the newest chapter. I have no idea why.
At least Shaft knows its source material well enough to add things that fit right in with it.
I really hope they are stepping into the "deconstruct the generic harem this time" path by adding horrendous amount of cliche into this series...
If we throw all cliches together, does it actually turn out as something good?
I think we can safely say now: No it doesn't.
It's a fun read.
I was getting turned on by her angers eyes but i dont know if its worth it.
He can't actually push that far, can he?
You never know buddy, if he keeps advancing the story every 10 chapters like now, he'll go ways.
>currently about 56 girls with keys
>Raku still "loves" Onodera even though he and Chitoge have been regularly fucking like rabbits
>Tsugumi get's gimmicky device #129 from Claude
The Shaft visual fuckery makes it worth watching. I'm hoping they start taking some liberties with the story with the author involved.
inb4 manga actually ends after "three years" in manga time and they still haven't unlocked that fucking necklace by that time.
I'm asking because I'm not even reading anymore but it scares me that it could still happen.
You've never heard of Felipe Smith?
I hope he uses the end of the story to bait and switch and advance Shuu and Ruri's relationship.
They're already self aware enough to steal the show, I'm sure they're as tired as us watching everyone pussyfoot around for another 200 chapters
You don't get it. Yes, it's retarded, but it's ironically retarded! By following every dumb cliché Shaft is actually deconstructing the harem genre!
It is 2 cour.
I wouldn't be suprised if SHAFT did purposefully put it in there as nod to the cliche but to say deconstruction is retarded. Parody maybe.
Let's put deconstruction everywhere,as parody.
Who cares I'm only watching it for the trap later on anyways
You mean reverse trap.
I remember there was a thread a long time ago about /a/ discussing anime cliches without any flaming. It was hilarious but I could never find it in the archive.
What do you expect from Lelouch?
Nisekoi truly is the Madoka of our time.
Except its going to sell 5k at most.
more like 25k+
manga fans on 2ch are going to mass support it to get sequels
I doubt it.
Nisekoi isn't going to get a blown up as Madoka was.
I would be really disappointed if Japan pushed this and supported the shitty writing this will end up becoming.
More often than not WSJ titles do badly in anime sales though. Things like One Peice, Naurto, Beezlebub, Toriko, Hunter X Hunter etc have all done pretty badly. The main exceptions I can think of are Gintama and Basugay.
Anyone else think Naoshi is making Nisekoi as cliche and as open ended as possible to get back at Japan because of Double Arts?
Nobody has ever suggested that before. What a fine idea.
That's true because adaptions are usually subpar and require no fan intervention. Those will keep running even if no one bought them.
Nisekoi is one of those more otaku WSJ manga and they realize to get more they need to make it successful.
Really? I'm pretty surprised I'm the first one to have thought of that. Thanks.
double arts was trash tho
>Those will keep running even if no one bought them.
Why wouldn't Nisekoi?
She won in Zegapain, Loliball and Angel Beats
Eventually will win in Tokyo Ravens since she's main character in after anime LNs.
But it's obvious she won't win here.
Onodera is boring anyway.
Night timeslot. Aiming at a different audience than regular shounen jump adaptions.
Take that back.
nah bro it got cancelled because it sucked dick
anyone who thinks otherwise has shit taste
Shaft seems to have generic down to an art. The cliches are almost refreshing.
You think it would be what? More expensive to show it at night? Explain the logic here.
The ironically retarded is actually a thing, considering that the author is purposefully trying to make the manga as painfully generic as he can.
I'm just watching so that I can join him in crying as this shit sells like hotcakes while Double Arts will never get a second shot.
>Welcome to trashy anime.
Fixed that for you. No need to thank me! I love to be helpful!
I bet you didn't like Mx0 either, faggot.
When do we get some headtilts?
I'm watching this just for SHAFT sillyness
I'm not disappointed
no i loved Mx0. Mx0 was legit good.
Double Arts was trash
We already got some
i ever heard that best girl never win..
so this is true..
We also got some >despair as well.
Not even SHAFT can save such a ridiculously typical plot
I really enjoyed that.
I hope they do more SZS. I know they won't, but I'd really like them to.
Did someone say >despair?
Also, obligatory reminder that Nisekoi is shit and Shaft is over.
The cooking scene made me want a Shokugeki no Souma anime by SHAFT
Didn't know a lump of excrement was capable of being cute.
Seems to me they are doing the same thing as ever, adapting whatever they get paid to as creatively as they can/
Nothing can save japanese people from liking it so much
It caught me off guard when I saw dark faces so suddenly.
It seems like this is going to be SHAFT's melting pot of their own jokes.
Wondering if there will be any wide screen view
What? Noone has the balls to go for a harem end, at least I can't even remeber the last time this happend.
But they almost never end. They're all either still ongoing, are on hiatus or get axed.
this gonna sell 2,000 BD copies and that's being generous
To Love-Ru is going that way.
I like it as it is a very interesting way to progress the story, while still having best girl win.
I still fear that it might end with a normal pairing, by some event causing Momo to rethink the plan or some shit.
I love you guys.
It's too late for that shit, it needs to go all in. Whenever that will be
chitoge is a fucking slut
Didn't Negima have a harem end?
Also, That basically every Tenchi Myuo has one, especially that last spin-off (the one one with mechas and shit) had one.
You are gonna be surprised
The other girls are cuter.
No. It didn't.
"The picture book hints at a 4th key"
Seriously. Another fucking key.This ride is just as bad as Rage Machine
Oneshot is superior to the actual thing.
That's pretty much all the cases though?
Oneshots are usually better than serialized works I find out.
How does the oneshot end?
Why don't you read it?
Read it for yourself faggot, it's a great piece.
I forgot how diluted their personalities are in the serialized version
Yeah but it was worth it for that one moment when he's sitting on the car shitting himself in front of imminent death.
still 19 episodes to go!
Well this is a shit anime.
Best girl warfare is well warranted in this case however. I do enjoy the MC with his Hidamari hair clip and wide face, and of course the SHAFT visuals but seeing Onodera getting "shot down" again and again would be too painful. It already is too much by the end of the first episode.
Will probably pick this up again during the airing of the last few episodes if the shitstorms are big enough.
There's plenty of people that will root for other characters, the shitstorms should be off the rails by the time the last 5 eps air.
The cliches... are only beginning.
>that bgm when Chitoge walks into the classroom
Oh yes Imma enjoy this
There is no doubt about that. In any case I just wish this would not turn into a Haganai-esque "eh nandatte" anime. I know that's what it most likely is, but I just wish it wouldn't be.
I guess it just sucks that Onodera was pretty much love at first sight, especially with that jagged hairline she has- kinda similar to Biribiri's.
Buckle up OP, because the clichés keep on coming and get a whole lot worse.
>thinking tsunderes are cute
The author does his best to throw in every cliche in the book to prove japan has shit taste because all his more original and interesting works got cancelled or never got popular enough.
>The author does his best to throw in every cliche in the book to prove japan has shit taste because all his more original and interesting works got cancelled or never got popular enough.
People keep saying this but there's no proof of it. I think it's more likely that he cynically decided to embrace the cliches with full support of his editors and it worked.
So not only is childhood friend in love with MC, he is actually in love with her too. They want each other right now. And she will still somehow lose. Despite the fact that she most likely confesses to him, only for him to be distracted by some bullshit, probably the main girl being silly.
Fuck this particular cliche, this bullshit has gone too far. Dropped harder than Tokyo Ravens.
It's going to be next to impossible for Raku to switch to Chitoge without looking like an asshole, especially since he liked Onodera in middle school, too.
No anon he dozes off and wakes up again
I would if I could.
oh wow you found the cliches! holy shit you have such goood taaaste
this thread is fucking circle jerk
Either way, it's still proof of shit taste since it still sells.
How silly of you.
>this thread is fucking circle jerk
Okay, so people discussing the series is now circlejerking.
no read between the fucking lines
it's pretty obvious that people here are basking in their good taste by pointing out how bad the series is
Pretty sad actually.
I found the first episode and the one-shot so far entertaining. Do I have problems?
No. It starts out good. I personally didn't think it abominable until around chapter fifty or so, where Onodera confesses and "Huh sorry what, I fell asleep there" "It was nothing"
you do realize that they are doing this on purpose to make autistic retards such as yourself kry?
So has there ever been a situation where something has a one-shot where one girl obviously wins but another girl wins the the serialization? Cause that sounds really weird to me.
The series itself is sweet, the slow pacing is what kills the whole experience for me.
THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN FUCKING SAYING EVER SINCE I PICKED UP SOMA.
Orihime was sort of the love interest in the Bleach pilot, but on the other hand she was also dead and going to Soul Society (i.e. a Chapter 1 only character) and there was some Ichigo/Rukia sexual tension.
What if Tsugumi ends up having the fourth key?
I hope the anime gest to the point where Onodera asks Raku to kiss her but then it turns out that...
Raku sponanteously fell asleep
Please god no
That's going to be the last episode
I can't wait for the anime-only faggots to rage at "HUH? WUT WUZ THAT? I FELL ASLEEP." and the amnesia story.
First episode was really enjoyable IMO. I also like both girls. But that might be because I generally like tsunderes, therefore I don't hate on blondie as much as most people seem to do in this thread.
>It's generic on purpose!
Every generic show since "deconstruction" became a meme.
Blond is pretty shit right now, but she gets a lot better later.
You're in luck, I already raged just by reading it in this thread.
Yeah. But I still don't straight out dislike her as most people in this thread seems to do. But as mentioned, I generally like tsunderes, so that might of course be one reason.
That is actually the mystery of Nisekoi. It's so cliche. It's so derivative. And I hate that shit. But for some reason... I can't stop reading the next chapter. Itisamystery
It's the shit you love to hate.
Because they get axed before anyone can win.
>tsundere bitch level
It gets worse: I want Onodera to win, and that shit so totally ain't happening.
All the girls are cute (except Onodera a shit), it's funny most of the time and reaction faces.
Frankly that's good enough for me.
25k yen you mean
>Onodera a shit
nigga I'll fight you
I hate it so much that...
(Also have Vol9 and 10 now)
I need help. Anyone.
>dissing on a HanaKana girl
Bitch I will literally fight you.
Oh hello neo/a/, how are you doing? Can you cry more please?
I'm also a sucker for her character type, so a Ruri end would also be hilarious, but that's infinitely less likely than even an Onodera ending.
Yeah that bothered me too when I finally lined them up. I was like... but it's not... even... whywouldyoudothis
I'm into ch.64 now and its obvious that best girl will win
Oh hey, and we're back now...
>that fucking volume 4
Somebody hold my OCS,
See, what I hate about harems the most is that they spend so much time on the losing girls, building up their feelings even though they don't have a chance. And usually this results in the main heroine getting neglected and making the real pairing seem lackluster. It just ruins the story.
NiseKoi is particularly bad in this sense since Raku has been crushing on Onodera for the whole story, and it's not even in a doomed sense since it's requited.
Why don't they make harems without an obvious main girl, so you can keep guessing who's going to win instead of knowing it from the get go?
I liked that first episode. Please tell me Onodera wins, or else I'm flying to Japan and finish the job by myself
>Please tell me Onodera wins
This. Onodera a shit.
We warned you about Nisekoi.
You were told it was the most generic harem ever made.
Why didn't you listen?
>Boku wa Tomodachi
Onodera waifu of the season.
Fuck the blonde monkey.
Yozora is obviously going to win, everybody knows she is the best girl.
>being this wrong
>Please tell me Onodera wins
