Ahhh another season of Nisekoi has gone by so quickly and while I found the first season of Nisekoi overall much more compelling than the second season, I’m glad to see the second season end on such a sweet Team … Continue reading

“Could you give my back one hell of a push?” – Maiko Rating: 4/5 happy clouds I was actually quite surprised by the detour that the series took for episode ten. Some might look at lit as a filler episode … Continue reading

This episode is separated into two parts – the pool cleaning part and Kosaki’s cold. I was quite surprised that the pool cleaning part didn’t last longer but we basically had a mini focus on Paula integrating herself into poolside fun time before moving onto the Onoderas.
While I do think Haru is pretty awesome because she keeps Raku on his toes, she might have to re-evaluate her attitudes towards him. When she ends up catching Kosaki’s cold, Raku orders Haru to bed and even makes her some food. When Raku brings Haru a cold compress during her sleep, she actually becomes touched by his kindness.
I was actually quite surprised that Haru kept Raku’s locket for so long, still doubting the fact that Raku is actually her prince from that fateful first day of school. Well, maybe doubitn ga bit less now because she can actually point out some good qualities of Raku and he isn’t just a total sleaze ball anymore.
I find Season two a lot more awkwardly paced than season one. The first season clearly progressed from the “getting to know you” stage to the “starting to recognize romantic feelings” stage. As an extension, season two’s job is to amp up the romantic scenes but other than the Raku x Chitoge moments, I don’t feel like Team Onodera is going that strong. Marika’s jokes get old and besides the three main characters, the supporting female characters only serve as interesting interludes every once in a while with Raku. The manga does feel like it drags on a bit because really how complicated can a childhood promise be? But I suppose the humour of the series and its spunky characters are its saving grace.
What are you pondering today?
