We learned back in October that a second season of Nisekoi was coming, which wasn’t too much of a surprise since the OAD side of it was being well treated and the first season went over well. Now it was announced at the Jump Festa 2015 event this weekend that the second season is closer than we expected as it’ll land in the spring 2015 season. No details were given about what the length of the series may run, since the first one ran for the odd number of twenty episodes, but we did learn that Ayane Sakura has boarded the series as Haru Onodera. It’s expected that the same team behind the first season and OADs will be returning along with the cast.
Nisekoi is based on the manga by Naoshi Komi which has been appearing in the US version of Weekly Shonen Jump since earlier this year. The series began back at the end of 2011 in Japan and has been running since.
Plot concept: Raku Ichijo is an average high school student. He also happens to be the sole heir to the head of a Yakuza Family called the Shuei-gumi. 10 years ago, Raku made a promise… a secret promise with a girl he met. They promised one another that they will “get married when they reunite.” Since then, Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him.
Then one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku’s class. Their chemistry was more than off. There was not a moment where they were not fighting. But, by a weird turn of events…Raku and Chitoge agree to become fake lovers. Although his heart is really interested in his classmate Kosaki Onodera…Raku must continue pretending to be Chitoge’s boyfriend.
How far will you go for a love that is truly fake? Which girl holds the key to Raku’s pendant and to his heart?
