It was revealed a bit ago that the manga series Nisekoi from Naoshi Komi was going to have an anime episode bundled with its 16th volume that’s due out on February 4th, 2015. Now we’re learning that the 17th volume, which lands on April 3rd, 2015, will be doing the same. And this one focuses on the public bath episode from volume ten. Priced at 3,400 yen for the edition on DVD only, the release is set to cover chapter 81 while the 16th volume will cover chapters 65 and 71 from the series with what’s basically smaller side stories. The team from the TV series is returning for it with Akiyuki Shinbo overseeing with Naoyuki Tatsuwa directing alongside Nobuhiro Sugiyama as the character designer, all produced at SHAFT. The cast from the TV series are reprising their roles, which isn’t a surprise as the 14th volume of the manga next month has a bundled anime episode as well.
Property concept: Raku Ichijo is an average high school student. He also happens to be the sole heir to the head of a Yakuza Family called the Shuei-gumi. 10 years ago, Raku made a promise… a secret promise with a girl he met. They promised one another that they will “get married when they reunite.” Since then, Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him.
Then one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku’s class. Their chemistry was more than off. There was not a moment where they were not fighting. But, by a weird turn of events…Raku and Chitoge agree to become fake lovers. Although his heart is really interested in his classmate Kosaki Onodera…Raku must continue pretending to be Chitoge’s boyfriend.
How far will you go for a love that is truly fake? Which girl holds the key to Raku’s pendant and to his heart?
