Oh my god… I had really, really high hopes for the anime adaption of Nisekoi. I have been following the manga for many months now. I love it. It is the reason why I won’t write about the episodes. I already know what’s going to happen.
I cannot get used to the artwork. I just can’t. The manga looks so much better and the characters look so much cuter. It’s not exactly a budget production, but I feel as though it could’ve been so much better. I don’t think I’ll get used to the animation style. I Guess I’m a little disappointed. Maybe I set the bar too high?
The story is gold. Gold-plated diamond that is. It’s unique, it’s interesting, it’s funny and it’s something that you can watch for many, many months on end. Stuff like this doesn’t get boring quickly. It’s the kind of story that deserves at least twenty-four episodes.
I do recommend this. I really do. I can’t seem to get used to the artwork and feel that the Nisekoi may have been better with a different art style, but that’s my opinion. Other people might think differently. So might you. It’s definitely worth a try, trust me.
