waven okay perhaps I do get impatient but doesn't mean anything a lot of people get impatient waiting for something to happen when they're making out such a grand plot and then not following through with it.

Well, the original 'fake relationship' arrangement between Raku & Chitoge was supposed to be the entire 3 years of high school, so I bet they will stretch it to that at least, provided it doesn't get cancelled.

You can also call shit: "fertilizer", but that doesn't somehow mean it isn't still shit.

Nisekoi had a plot arc early on in the series based around the pendant, the author started making good money on the series however, and decided to prolong it in the effort to make a greater profit. I honestly don't fault him on this though.

I'm just still buttpained that Double Arts was canceled, and a series fast becoming tripe is getting an anime.

heh, I knew it
It's so close to coming true. lol
I hope I don't jinx it

@new chapter
Chitoge was so cute this chapter
don't get me and my avatar wrong though, I've always been a Chitoge shipper
it's just that Onodera on the image source was just so much tempting to be made as an avatar

Amnesiac Raku is such a plaaaayah! I too wish he stayed like this, at least for a while.

I don't like amnesiac raku and yea its pretty much guaranteed that the next chapter or 2 the girl will be revealed. The funniest part was how onodera and raku first met and even better how ruri had some ready.

Amnesia Raku kinda makes you wonder what happened to the real Raku that he became so irritable, often annoyed and generally a bit less likable than without memories.

Take a look back, I know it took two for this specific tango but if Raku was like his amnesia-self back when he met Chitoge for the first time they would've never developed this initial hate-relationship.

Anyway, it's probably just a plot device for the girls to adore his cute side.

I'm still having doubts that chitoge is the one in the book cover. Could be any of the four because they all have their accessories on their heads.

He became a self-conscious teenager worried about what other people think of him. All of his event related memories are gone, so he no longer has any idea of the surroundings he used to worry about. However, you can still see traces of that personality trait even when he's under amnesia. He worried about Chitoge running away (out of embarrassment) thinking he said something to offend her.


Back then, his first impression of Chitoge back then was a violent girl who attacked him. She has done no such thing since he lost his memories, so to him she appears to be a nice girl worried about him.

Raku doesn't remember that he has a crush on Onodera, so he no longer has any reason to be nervous.

The same applies to his and Chitoge's yakuza background: since Raku doesn't remember that his relationship with Chitoge is what politically prevents their families from starting a gang war, he doesn't have to fake anything for appearances. Part of the reason why he disliked Chitoge back then was because he was also forced to be with her against his will.

All good points and I don't really know how amnesia really works (neither does the author I suppose) but your first argument about Raku being a self-conscious teenager before (well he still kinda is) is the most valid here. It seems amnesia is pictured here as something like a clean slate with no walls around him, no defensive mechanisms - almost like a young child.

I know, right? Of course, if he had been like this from the beginning then we'd have had a Harem End by chapter ten, so that's out.

What if she's all of the girls? The girl from ten years ago could have Marika's hair color (see chapter 1), Kosaki's haircut, and Chitoge's ribbon (only in the book). That's my random theory.

I would actually like this theory to be true...oddly enough.
