Of course not...because no matter what he'll end up with Chitoge if he does end up with a single girl. I'm no Chitoge shipper mind you (Marika <3 ), but it's pretty clear who the final girl is right from the start.

Wow, what a nice twist at the end but I wonder if there would be another twist that will ended up bring back the promised girl route to Chitoge.

Marika being mysterious and Maikot being the one who notice.

What we know:
1. Raku was playing with Onodera and Chitoge somewhere on the countryside
2. There was a hospital nearby, where Raku met with Marika
3. There are 4 girls in storybook - princess and 3 girls with keys
4. Storybook has a sad ending
5. Chitoge, most probably, is not the promised girl

What if there was a fourth girl, treated in she same hospital Marika was. Raku made a promise with that fourth girl, and all 3 other girls promised to help them - so all three have a key (like in the story). Sad ending probably means death of princess (and by parallel death of promised girl). That way Chitoge, while not being a promised girl, still could be the final girl. I think author put so many "hints" pointing Chitoge as final girl, so almost no one expect any other girl could win.

This seems to make most sense for me, the fourth girl most likely has passed away, hence Marika's unwillingness to talk.

I think there is a "trap" in this: The "promised girl" is not necessarily who Raku promised a future with.

I like that prediction about the 4th girl, it's very bittersweet. In this scenario I could see a simple note being in Raku's locket saying "Don't forget me" or something like that. Maybe back then the 3 girls helped Raku to fulfill the dying wish of the 4th girl (who was terminally ill) like smuggling her out of the hospital to have her enjoy a final day outside. It would make for a sweet and sad back story.

Still, while I could really appreciate such a revelation about the lock I rather expect the author to go the simple way, introduce the 4th girl and have her become another rival/harem member.

So Chitoge wasn't the promised girl, eh... well, I've always thought it was Kosaki so it didn't surprise me.
Nice amnesia arc though, getting hints and Raku's personality change -- if he was like that in the past, no wonder the girls liked him back then
On a side note, even though he'll most likely end up with Chitoge, I still hope for a Marika ending

It could be that Marika was friends with the "promise girl" who died, Raku lost his memories of that time from the shock of losing a dear close friend at such a young age and meanwhile Marika made a promise of her own with the "promise girl" involving Raku.

Or...the fourth girl could show up at some point and the standard harem setting returns to normal.

Or...or...or...or...Marika is the "promise girl" but due to some kind of agreement with the third key holder that died she can't say it's her.

Or...or...or...or...or...or...I dunno...theories and shit.

Isn't it pretty obvious that this is foreshadowing the fact that Raku won't end up with the promised girl? lol

I wish it would've been more subtle

This speculations about the promised girl makes me want to read love hina again.

Just like love hina, my hunch is that Chitoge is the promised girl despite Raku already said she isn't.

if the fourth girl really died that in itself would be sad and interesting at the same time.Or it could just be that marika for some reason really hates this girl

I think the signs are all there for a 4th girl. Based on the story, the three are probably "the girls with keys that helped the prince". Plus, there's the 'sad ending' and whatever secret Marika's keeping. (They met at a hospital, maybe that 4th girl died?)

what if the fourth girl is something like marika's sister or something weird like that. Although i will say that the promised girl thing is a nice twist its a shame it wont be revealed who it is quite yet

It was shown a while back that Marika was jealous of a girl with long hair (hated her even? Wish I remembered which chapter that was in so I could check). I'm pretty sure that's the fourth girl and that's why I think she's hiding her identity.

It would be interesting to find out the fourth girl is dead.

Iirc it was more along the line of Raku back then saying he likes long-haired girls more, although that could refer to the 4th girl as well.

from a long hard search
chapter 34 is when Marika told Raku she hated girls with long hair

chapter 35 was when she showed her true self

I personally don't find the 4th dead girl theory to be very likely, it would be interesting, no doubt about that but it just doesn't seem to fit into the general light hearted tone of Nisekoi. Raku mentions changing the ending of the story book, my guess is he will end up in a situation like the sad ending of the book and he will change it to probably make all the girls happy even if he does choose a end girl. As for what could be in the locket, my guess is its probably the torn out pages of the story book or something lol a ring seems the most likely but then again its the obvious stuff that authors like to use for plot twist.

I actually suspect the fourth girl is alive and marika knows where she is which she wants to hide. As for the end girl i think the fourth girl will be the end girl but she hasn't been introduced yet. By the way best part of the chapter was Ruri's reaction and how it looked like she wanted to kill onodera
