(This is a part of the series of posts, 12 Days of Christmas, done in my own way.)
I have been following Nisekoi manga (Story and Art by Komi Naoshi) since 2012, so when the news for the first season of anime came out in 2013, I was really happy. Those were the times I was still harboring pure love for Nisekoi, despite its flaws. This is pretty much a rant post (mostly in regards to the manga; slight spoilers ahead!). Go ahead and hate me.
Here goes my loves and hates in Nisekoi! Bring them on!
- Almost all the girls in Raku’s harem have personality
- Kirisaki Chitoge – the best tsundere and best girl, hmph! ; even though she’s the main girl her personality doesn’t revolve completely around Raku
- Miyamoto Ruri – the most consistently written girl in the series. Bow
- Tsugumi Seishirou – cool assassin and tsundere, ’nuff said
- Claude – comes up with the best potions; just at par with Chuuma-sensei‘s (SKET Dance) genius
- Tsugumi falling into the traps (potions) of Claude – best laughs
- Maiko Shu x Miyamoto Ruri – the only best possible ship
- Maiko Shu – the best supporting character, but slightly above the rest of his kind by taking the spotlight from the MC himself
- Kanakura Yui – the only girl with intriguing mystery
- Komi Naoshi’s art – still an eye candy
- Some fillers are still so funny – the manga’s kinda addicting that it’s virtually impossible to drop it
- Raku the dense rock (I sometimes wanna
slaphit him in the face)
- Onodera Kosaki and her being one-dimensional and her Raku-is-the-sun-I-revolve-around attitude
- Kosaki Haru – Onodera version 2, only somewhat upgraded with actual cooking abilities and cheeky personality
- Tachibana Marika – obsessed with Raku
- Every girl (except Ruri and a bunch of other unimportant characters) falls for Raku – Ugh.
- Kanakura Yui – she’s in love with Raku. Ugh.
- Komi Naoshi’s art – gets repetitive in the long run
- Komi Naoshi – seems to have fallen victim to Same Face Syndrome
- ~40% – the actual story-related content of Nisekoi, i.e. involving the main pairings and the
mystery revolving around the key and lock pendants
Clearly, I’ve come up with more loves than hates. That’s a bad sign of being overly attached to the series. I need to get rid of this obsession. Or do I? Still, I love hating on Nisekoi, but I love it enough not to totally hate on it.
