Goodreads Synopsis:

Love triangle! Comedic antics!! Gang warfare?! You won’t want to miss out on Shonen Jump's laugh-out-loud feel-good manga series! It's hate at first sight when Raku Ichijo first meets Chitoge Kirisaki. But much to their chagrin, the two are forced into a false love relationship to keep the peace between their feuding gangster families.

Just when things seem to be going well between the two, a misunderstanding during their beach trip puts a damper on their false relationship. Back in school, Raku and Chitoge are selected to play Romeo and Juliet at the school festival. However, Chitoge's still mad at Raku and refuses the role! When the class draws names for a new Juliet, Kosaki gets the part. But on the big day, nothing goes as planned!


So the cliffhanger from the last volume was quickly resolved into nothing, disappointingly, though not surprisingly. I was hoping, but oh well.
Then the plot goes to a typical high-school scenario--a school play, of Romeo and Juliet. Which is also turned into a comedy troupe, but is very entertaining. Meanwhile, there’s a surprising development with Chitoge’s feelings. The lock-and-key plot is still going nowhere fast.
And then there’s another echi high school moment, though not nearly as bad as the one in volume 2. This one features Raku sneaking around as the girls change, though nothing too-horrible is shown. And that one ends with more comedy. And we end with a cute horoscope-based chapter between Onodera and Raku.
This series is hilarious and adorable and ridiculous and harem to the extreme, and no matter what, I love it. I will be starting the next volume immediately.
