Chapter 40 is really cute.
I'm starting to think that Claude might be a huge idiot.
By the way, I thought of a presentation phrase for Nisekoi. What do you think of this: «A manga about a constant city-scale destruction menace due to irregular relationships between yakuza, gangsters and the police, and their leaders' respective sons». I think it depicts the universe of Nisekoi quite well .
Yes it was an important chapter, and sweet too .
For Tsugumi's role, yeah I feel that too. She's too loyal to Chitoge, to take Raku away from her is just unlikely considering her personality (even though she was imagining nasty things, back then). One thing that a little bit annoys me is that she is kinda disadvantaged by such situation, where Onodera and Marisa basically have the same "chance" with Chitoge to be Raku's spouse.
Spoilers for Chapter 41 and 42

Chapter 41 is out, in case you haven't read it yet. Honestly I don't mind if we get several episodic chapters in a while, It's good to reduce the tension
It's funny how Chitoge is not only being a tsundere towards Raku, but to a puppy as well

The dog going at her all the time was just.... it was a really enjoyable chapter for me, Raku and Chitoge are always win. And while Chitoge may not be easy to handle she can be so upperly cute. It was nice to see that she got close to the dog too and how Raku cared for her at the end. Her face when she had to give the dog away was just soo
Didn't really like the chapter much to be honest. Waaay to cliché.
Though it was nice to get a softer side to Chitoge.
But at the same time, there's only so much before it feels like you're dragging it out in a repetitive fashion without making ends meet.
Can anybody picture this going longer than 200 chapters? I've had mixed feelings ever since Marika was introduced to the story and the yakuza vs gangster problematic hook disappeared. Yes, we still see Raku and Chitoge pretend to be in a relationship. But infront of everybody who knows they're faking it (minus two), it doesn't have that same grasp like when it was first introduced, it feels forced now, and we're continuously just watching ideas being thrown at the wall and seeing what sticks.
Love the Chitoge x Raku moments, though.
This has started to bore me. The chapters were fun, but the fun feels repetitive. It also leaves me apprehending every time we get to have a chapter out of the actual plot, the end comes next or else the drag feels forced. This is like Bleach anime with lots of fillers.
I will wait for more chapters before I get back to reading this.
Well, yes, the problem with this sort of story is that it’s not suited for a long-run. However, so far, it has not been boring to me. Even though maybe I liked the first chapters more, so far recent chapters have not disappointed me too. You may call some chapters filler, but I think Komi manages really well the interactions between the characters and manages to create a nice atmosphere in those chapters, so I don’t feel like it’s too repetitive yet, and this sort of story evolution makes the author use his strong points… I think it’s just a question of whether you like it or not. For me most Nisekoi chapters are fresh, have quality and humor… But it’s true I don’t see Nisekoi becoming a very long series at all, it would just become a stupid harem manga not different from the others, and I think Komi knows when to stop before it becomes too boring, and find a good proportion between story progress and episodic chapters.
Did anyone else get turned on by a blushing Onodera?? I did . Also, am I sensing a ShuuxRuri pairing??
Lastly, who do you think dressed the best?? Onodera, Chitoge, Tsugumi, or Tachibana?? my pick is Chitoge. Her hair held up looked great and fit perfectly with the Yukata.
P.S.: love Chitoge misunderstanding Raku's gesture. Probably my favourite moment in the series so far.
