Nisekoi (Komi Naoshi - Double Arts)

New series starting in JUMP Issue #48.



A Romantic Comedy from Komi Naoshi the mangaka of Double Arts.

There is a one shot for this already translated, from what I've read the serialized manga has quite a few changes from the one shot though. So maybe it's best to wait until you've read the proper manga before the one shot so your expectations aren't changed....

Scanlation is out.

The debut chapter isn't particularly outstanding 'per say', but there's really only so much one can do with this kind of set-up.

I'm happy about the characters and the dynamics of the relationship thus far, at least. It's very expressive, without feeling too subdued or being too unrealistic.

But man... what a tweest...

I liked chapter 1 more than the one shot. I didn't see the twists coming.

Generic romcom comic is generic. Seriously, they could've tried to do something, anything new but didn't.

The girl from the one shot was soo much better than the ones in the serialization (a forced to become perfectionist due to a romantic deception); besides that the serialization is pretty much better in every aspect, it flows better, has a more complete premise with a love triangle and is less cheezy where it needs to be less cheezy.

Not incredibly original nor anything, but it has the chance of flowing naturally into a fun yet not new story.

Yeah... That Legendary RomCom, which told of legends of The Promised Girl as well leaving so much fiery battles behind over The Victorious One and The One Who Should Had Won.

I never liked that tweest, so I'll go with the assumption that she is not The One until hinted otherwise later on.

But the romantic deception hasn't even happened unlike the one-shot.

Unless you're referring to something else in particular.

The one from the one shot was the perfectionist, and the deception was that she tried to fulfill the "always together" local legend and the other part didn't seem interested in the least.

Also, she was cuter

The one from the serialization seems to be a simple run out the mill kind hearted extremist tsundere, the other one is the usual soft spoken inchou.

Uh... kinda feels disappointing. I (still) don't like gorilla girl; though she's a tad better in this version. I actually liked how the focused on the families more then the classmates in the oneshot, felt like this was a step back. Well maybe it gets better later on since the setting is pretty good and easy comedy territory.

There's going to be some stiff competition for the rom-coms in WSJ to not get cut, especially since it isn't kind to this genre.

Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa
Magico
Nisekoi

It's unfortunate but I expect at least one of those will be cancelled.

I just can't see this running for a long time. Double Arts had it's own world that could be explored, a story that could've reached a large scale. Not to mention a nice dynamic between the two leads.

This? This has nothing. It's your run-of-the-mill shounen romcom. It doesn't even have a particular twist that makes it original. It really feels stitched-together out of several cliches.
I hate to be always pessimistic like this but I honestly can't see anything beyond the usual shounen stuff: misunderstandings, lack of depth, no progress and a lot of humor that is, probably, not of the good kind.

I can already see the cancellation.

Don't think Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa is likely to get canned.

What's all the hate about?
From the first chapter it seems that this new manga is pretty good, btw magico will be cancelled

His track record isn't too great, with Mx0 and Pretty Face, both rom coms getting canned. Whether its safe right now or not, I'm not sure what the rankings are, but I'll always be on guard for a potential axe.

I think Magico might be the safest out of the 3, because it doubles as a battle manga and has a more expansive universe that can be explored. Of course I'm also biased so I hope it does survive if it comes down to it.
