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.

English teacher Yui has been assigned to take over as...the school music teacher?! She's so tone deaf her singing makes the students faint, and yet she's been designated to sing in front of the whole school! Later, Raku and Chitoge are in for a surprise when they meet the princess from a foreign kingdom—she looks exactly like Chitoge! What’s in store when the princess and Chitoge switch places?


In the middle of this volume, we meet a doppelganger of Chitoge. And she’s a princess, who just wants to get away from her guards and have a good time. She’s a very sweet girl, and Raku gets to show her around the sites and experience some of Japan, while Chitoge gets to pretend to be a princess. It’s quite fun for everyone.
Aside from that, there are of course a bunch of fun chapters. We get to see what Yui’s one flaw is, Tsugumi finds another experimental drug, Marika tries to get along with the animals that Raku loves. There’s also a moment of truth with Ruri, as she observes Shu when another girl wants to confess to him. And lastly the potential of something more happening between Raku and Onodera, though I don’t think anything is ever going to happen there, even if it feels like everyone but them knows.
This series is always fun to read. The art is so pretty, and the characters are so fun.
