It's almost Christmas, but Chitoge's not in a festive mood because her mother, Hana Kirisaki, is visiting Japan for the winter holidays. Chitoge introduces her false boyfriend to her workaholic mom, who then decides to test his mettle—by making him work as her secretary! While laboring away, Raku can’t help but notice the strained relationship between Chitoge and her mother. Is there anything he can do?
I seem to have less and less to say about this series. Just because I enjoy it. It’s good—very good. The art is so pretty. I love the characters.
We had several different plotlines here. We meet a new character who fights with Tsugumi. Chitoge wants some attention from Raku, which was adorable. Ruri loses her glasses, and we see a serious side of Shu, and duh they should just start flirting already. And then we meet Chitoge’s mother, who is surprisingly scary, but also makes sense. Their relationship was sweet, if rough, and I liked seeing the depth it added to Chitoge’s character. It definitely added more chemistry between Chitoge and Raku, too.
I’m pretty much all for Chitoge at this point. I still like all of the other girls, but she’s the one, as far as I can tell, for him. I still really like Onodera, though. And I like how Tsugumi pretty much just wants Chitoge to be happy—she’s such a good friend. I like that the girls all have actual friendships between them.
This is just plain excellent, for harem, for comedy, in general. I love it. Gimme the next one.
