RATING

7/10


TL;DR

picked up, dropped, waited, re-picked up, finished, enjoyed.


CONCLUSION

Overall, a pretty clean-reading manga from start to finish. 4-koma styled manga that does well in delivering reading enjoyment in quick and efficient jabs. If you’re looking for a decent comedy-based manga with spurts of drama and romance, I’d recommend picking this up for a decent little read. Obviously art is gonna be mediocre (2008 origins) but it does get slightly better towards the end releases.

RATING

8/10

TL;DR

  • One of the best core-romance mangas I’ve read in a long long time
  • Equal screen time and responsibility from lead characters
  • Shipping wars aplenty
  • Age gaps, bro.
  • Good representation, and realistic-feeling, of “high school girls”
  • Sweet beginning, spicy middle, bittersweet (read: almost unsatisfying) ending

CONCLUSION

“Well shit, I might reread this soon”

RATING

6/10

TL;DR

  • Before reading…Supernatural genre “ooooh, nice”
  • After reading… (sighs)
  • Male lead has some sort of aspect of him (plot armor) which keeps him relevant
  • Monsters, boobies, ecchi; oh my
  • Messy ass story line
  • Nonsensical ass characters
  • Fast-forward/scene skipping evident
  • Baketeriya = some action (“fighting”) + minor romance aspects + “plot twists”
  • The end.

CONCLUSION

“what the fuck is even going on?”

Like, I am so confused. Each girl felt pretty special to the story and I’ll be fucking damned to hell if I said I didn’t get a wee-bit emotional for their “route conclusions”. If I really had to though…

  1. Marika Tachibana
  2. Chitoge Kirisaki
  3. Kosaki Onodera
  4. Haru Onodera
  5. Yui Kanakura
  6. Seishirou Tsugumi

Thoughts:

  • Marika BARELY edges over Chitoge. Her overall story was done really well and got me emotionally involved.
  • Chitoge BARELY edges over Kosaki. The winning factor was probably due to Chitoge’s heroin status as female lead thus getting more attention.
  • The Kosaki Onodera and Raku Ichijou “confession scene” was heartbreaking. Absolutely killed me. “I’ve always liked you”, “But… it’s different now, isn’t it?”. Fucking killed me right there.
  • THOUGH, to be honest- the ending felt underwhelming and rushed. So many things left unexplained and forwarded through that it kind of tainted the Nisekoi universe, IMO.

 

 

Yup, so it happened. Got through the manga. Am now sad. What do?
