After almost ten years, this beloved romantic comedy series is making a comeback. Are you ready for it? Let's dive in! Nisekoi: False Love written and illustrated by Naoshi Komi, gained immense popularity as one of the most beloved romantic comedy franchises of all time.

It's been over eight years since the second season of the anime aired and nearly seven years since the original manga concluded. Whether you loved or hated the ending, or whether your favorite girl won or not, there's no denying the impact this series had on fans worldwide.

Since the conclusion of Nisekoi: False Love, Naoshi Komi hasn't released any new manga, except for occasional one-shots that didn't gain much attention. However, the recent announcement from the publisher Shueisha has brought Nisekoi: False Love back into the spotlight.

Starting in June of this year, the manga will be reprinted in a new format, with the first two volumes of this edition set to be released on June 16 in Japan. But wait, there's more! Seven years have passed, and Shueisha knows that reviving a somewhat forgotten franchise like Nisekoi: False Love requires some incentives. That's where Naoshi Komi comes in.

Naoshi Komi, who was seemingly in a "forced retirement" as an author, will return with additional stories set ten years after the original manga's ending. So, if you weren't thrilled with Chitoge winning and Onodera losing, now you'll have the chance to enjoy the married life of Raku and Chitoge, while Onodera finds happiness with a random guy! Isn't that a surprise? Well, it definitely seems like the author is having fun with it.


Synopsis for Nisekoi: False Love

For those unfamiliar let me give you a quick synopsis. The story revolves around Raku Ichijou, who made a heartfelt promise to his childhood friend when they were young: if they ever met again, they would get married. However, after ten years, Raku no longer remembers her face but still carries a pendant with a locked key, while his childhood friend holds the key. Raku's goal is to reunite with her someday.

As Raku tries to live a normal life as a first-year student and dreams of marrying his beloved Kosaki Onodera, things take an unexpected turn. He becomes entangled in a fake romantic relationship with Chitoge Kirisaki, the beautiful daughter of the leader of a rival gang, in order to bring peace between their families. Raku and Chitoge start off hating each other but must learn to live together and pretend to be deeply in love to keep their families at bay.

But Raku's search for the key's owner becomes more complicated as more girls, all somehow connected to the pendant, enter his life. Join Raku as he juggles his fake relationship, balances the feuding families, and unravels the identity of the girl who will open his heart.


Exciting, isn't it? Get ready to immerse yourself in the nostalgic world of Nisekoi: False Love once again, with new stories that will surely surprise and captivate you. Keep an eye out for the upcoming releases and enjoy the ride!
