Manga Review: Nisekoi: False Love, Volume 18, by Naoshi Komi

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shonen Jump (VIZ Media)
Release Date: November 2016
Volumes: 25.

Volume: 1. 17. 19.

Goodreads Synopsis:

A laugh-out-loud story that features a fake love relationship between two heirs of rival, a mission to find out which girl actually holds the key to Raku's pendant—and his heart!

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.

It's day three of the school trip, and Raku visits a temple known to be a power spot. Little does he know that it’s a place famous for magical bows and arrows that have romance-fulfilling properties! With all the girls determined to shoot him down, which huntress will bring down her prey?!


Much of this volume continues the school trip arc, in which there are a lot of antics for all of the characters. Roku gets dragged into a lot of schemes, and he gets hit by several of the girls.
And then we get the news that Chitoge is moving away, and thus her and Roku don't need to pretend dating anymore. This brings about a lot of sadness for everyone, including Tsugumi. The surprising part is when Chitoge starts trying to barter with her family/Claude to get them to let her stay, and when instead they lock her up.
I don't have many doubts about her staying in Japan, especially with what Roku is even doing to try to help, but it should be interesting to see how it's wrapped up in the next one.
This is fun, harem-y goodness. Will be reading the next one soon.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
