Goodreads Synopsis:

Love triangle! Comedic antics!! Gang warfare?!

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.

A meteor shower that comes only once in 50 years is said to bring lovers together, so both Chitoge and Kosaki want to declare their love to Raku when they all gather to watch the night sky! Meanwhile, Raku still hasn’t come to terms with his own feelings… What truth will shine on this starry evening?


At the beginning of the volume, we get a realization from Ruri regarding her feelings. It's a bit cheesy, but expected. Nothing is quite done about it yet, though.
While there are no confessions quite yet, we get several revelations in this volume, regarding their own and their friends' feelings. The main triangle gets rather tangled, annoyingly so. Chitoge decides to make a big move to let her friends be happy, and it's just not great. It's not a great decision, it's frustrating, but it's also quite cheesy. It does make sense, though.
After all this, we get a couple of reveals of information, both for the book they read as kids and for the keys and the place it happened. It's all leading up to the cliffhanger, going into the finale for the next book. Not a whole lot is actually said yet, so it should be interesting to see how it all wraps up. I know who I want, and I think it's leaning that way.
We'll see.
