I think one of the reasons why I don't like Chitoge much is that she reminds me of Kirino from OreImo somehow...

For one thing, other than few series out there, I am really tired of violent tsundere winning the main protagonist in a harem series in an obvious way...

I am praying that Nisekoi won't be one of those series where the "obvious is obvious" rule apply, but if it does, it will just be another disappointment...

I'm thinking that Raku was fated to be with Chitoge as how the story set up from the first place.

Randrak, I understand that what you stated here would not sit right with some people, when it comes to harem genre, since the main girl wins is quite mainstream (mostly the first girl wins). But still, Chitoge isn't the first girl introduced in the series.

I said usually, Ichigo 100% was one of the few exceptions (though it's a complicated one since it was also a rushed ending).

And what do you mean about G.E? It fits the bill to a T!
- First girl to show up is the girl the MC has a crush on (the final girl is rarely the one the Mc has a crush on);
- Second girl to show up AND the first girl to interact with the MC is the main girl (which is perfectly obvious from the beginning);
- She's on the first cover;
- She gets by far the most plot and screentime as well;

Actually, Chitoge WAS the first girl introduced (not counting flashback) and in an eventful encounter too.

Even so, the past memory is still somewhat blurry & unclear. Maybe it's a bit too soon to assume who will win. For me, either Chitoge or Marika. However, I sought for the "screw the past promise!" scenario. Cause straight up rejection in a harsh way isn't his character.

PS: I thought Onodera was the first.

So it is given that Haru likes Raku. I wonder how the Onodera sisters will deal with this if they found out that they both like Raku in the future.

I wouldn't compare them, Chitoge, at least to me, does not appear as spiteful and abrasive as Kirino (ugh) was, sure, she's a "violent tsundere", but the tone of her violence it's more slapstick comedy, while Kirino's was a lot more bitchy-ish.
In short, I do like Chitoge, she kind of grew on me, and I wouldn't be bothered by a Chitoge end, but apparently, I'm in the minority.

Chitoge is more of being a generic violent tsundere than an obnoxious/bitchy one. I personally find Chitoge likable. And now, it gets better as she's getting less abrasive & violent. She's making progress. Although whatever how this story ends as what Randrak assuming how it would end might not go right with me, but I wish Raku wouldn't harshly rejecting girls straight away, cause making sacrifice isn't his style.

Open endings are stupid, they don't provide closure to a series. But yeah, I see the advantages of an open ending for fans of a girl who is unlikely to win: They have enough room for imagination. On the other hand I'm far less critical of the main character rejecting the other girls after he chooses one. I'm not a fan of two-timing of three-timing. If the main character chooses one, then it is only fair that he gives closure to everybody else so they can move one.

Then again, it also depends on the series for me. For something like IS a rejection of everybody else would be seriously bad considering how many yanderes are running around. And Strike the Blood from what I've seen is a prime example for a series that can make do with one main wife and one or two secondary ones. But I don't see Nisekoi in that mold.

Although I'm rooting for Chitoge end, I began to worry about Marika who is being very aggressive and possessive towards Raku. Onodera wouldn't mind too much for that. But Marika, on the other hand... Oww, how should I describe this? I bet that she couldn't accept the fact and her defeat. I know she tries very hard, but she's being overconfident and very obsessed of Raku makes me think that she may be holding a yandere tendency time bomb that would lead to a 'nice boat' ending.

Things may not end well as long as she's around. That's why an ending without an absolute closure for a little bliss may do a bit easier.

Hey guys before the ending comes there's still 2 massive problems to deal with. 1st of all its the existence of a 4th key if it is when does that girl come into play. 2nd of all it appears that marika is hiding something and i'm guessing its a game changer. Finally even if the fated girl is known as long as the whole gang war thing is still possible things could get so much worse especially if the police get involved as well

Let's just say if Marika was upset that the fated girl isn't her, she then have the police force to declare war on both yakuza and mafia gang, and then planning to force Raku to marry her and bear his child with her. Well, then this is as I concerned...

I'm no friend of Marika. Her obsessiveness reminds me somewhat of Kouko's behaviour towards Mitsuo at the beginning of Golden Time. Somewhat childish and unhealthy and not really romantic. But that's just me.

I am almost certain that won't happen. Marika is sick. It's implied that it's pretty lethal as well. The way I see it what's gonna happen is that one day she gets so sick that she can no longer hang around everyone. Raku finds out how serious it is and asks her why didn't she say something earlier. She tells him its because she doesn't want to be treated like a sickly fragile girl. She then asks him to fulfill her dying wish and be her boyfriend even if it is nisekoi, and to keep everything a secret from the others.

I hope they make a somewhat tragedy-ish chapter like they did in Sora no Otoshimono before it end.

Exactly. I really hope Marika dies due to her illness. It would move the story forward for a change.

That's harsh, hoping for a character to die.
