Nisekoi: Review — C-


Yes, the colon is part of the title. Jesus.

I feel now like I was a bit harsh on Nisekoi before. Or maybe the second season was actually better. I’m not sure. But the SHAFTisms I complained about so much from the first season didn’t really bother me this time around. And I didn’t even fall behind in watching Nisekoi this season. I wouldn’t say I was looking forward to it, exactly, but I didn’t mind it. It was a pleasant watch while I was eating dinner or just about to fall asleep.

It still has the same problems: the main character is boring, all these girls are in love with him for no reason, etc. But I think that perhaps, since they got the introductions out of the way in the first season, they were able to tell side stories that weren’t quite as typical as the content of the first season. For example, I quite liked the episode where everyone turned into magical girls. And the parts with Onodera’s sister were decent. Of course, it also helped that Marika had a larger role this season.


  • Storytelling – C – Not the most exciting setup, but some decent side stories.
  • Voice – C – Shaft.
  • Characters – C – Not too well developed.
  • Attention Grab – C – I finished it.
  • Production – B – Looks fine.
  • Overall – C-
