World's biggest wannabe
In fact, I could imagine a writer making a setting with a large amount of criss-crossing promises for the sake of figuring out what sorts of lulz end up taking place (since nobody ever just sits down and talks these sorts of things out).Call me crazy, but to me, that sounds a lot like Ranma 1/2, as that plot could never be resolved either because of honour.
The Eternal FoolTrue. What exactly in Ranma ½ does it match? I've read about it and never saw anything of the sort mentioned.
x5 Great idea. I assume the manga you're talking about is Negima? EDIT: Ninja'd so hard

World's biggest wannabeThe reason why the Love Dodecahedron of that particular series could never be properly resolved is because the main character would never be able to choose a single girl without breaking one of the Pillars of Moral Character because of a huge web of oaths, promises, arranged marriages, debts, I Owe You My Life and many, many other things.

The Eternal FoolAh, I see. That's an example of not planning that out particularly well...

Secret CharacterOk I just rushed 16 and 17, after I was spoiled about 17 and was jumping up and down like an idiot("I knew it! I knew it!"). In the course, this just means that this manga is a bit predictable, and also in danger of becoming a harem series. Now while I love harem series, this type of genre(or series, whatever) recieves a lot of bashing and has a danger of ending early. The author has one ended up early in the past. I pray he won't have to go through that again.
Eh, more bashers usually means that it's more popular. Just sayin'. Aside from that, Nisekoi is still decently written and cleanly drawn. It's not what you'd call great, but it has its charm. And if something like To Love Ru can go on for a hundred chapters... well, let's just say I'm being optimistic at the moment. Yeah, he probably put all the planning into the martial arts stuff. XD

Secret CharacterAnd I hate haters... :) Just saying...
Mysterious Heroine XUpon rereading, I think that the most interesting part of the chapter is that Chitoge learns how highly Raku actually thinks of her.
That's an example of not planning that out particularly well...It was completely intentional in Ranma. Ranma was a comedy series first and foremost. It was sort of a running gag that his father was giving him away to everyone to pay off small bills, so he ends up engaged to a lot of people.

The Eternal Fool
The Eternal FoolNew chapter. Harem setup confirmed. Colour page in the next issue.
I loved that small panel of Tsugumi hanging from the ceiling with nothing supporting her.
The Eternal FoolShe is secretly Spiderman.
Nisekoi is like Lull Destruction turned into manga form. I swear I can hear the yelling on every page. Even on the pages that don't yell.
That's a weird way of, uh, experiencing this manga. Already Tsugumi is much more interesting than Onodera. Though that's not saying much. Harem time!
Moderate HaruhiistTo be fair, Onodera's boring because she doesn't actually do much while she's on-panel. She's just... there.
Mysterious Heroine XRaku has a way with the girls... kinda. Tsugumi looks promising. I expect many lulz from her. You are really not helping her case.
World's biggest wannabeOh, hoorah, harem +1. I swear, as soon as I find a better way to spend my time, I'll be dropping this series like a rock.
Chapter 19's out.
The Eternal FoolI lol'd. And that's all I have to say about that. Honestly, it's still quite refreshing to see Shonen romance without ecchi.
The being presented with the two dishes felt like some sort of weird zen riddle. "Judge not upon their appearance, for they will both taste like shit."
The Eternal FoolHonestly though, I'd prefer Chitoge's cooking for looking like what it is.
Aside from the unfortunate lack of Tsugumi, nice cute chapter. I wonder when Raku and Chitoge will realize they're being really really friendly?
Secret CharacterNew chapter and it's just harem development? I wonder if this will reach To-Love-Ru ridiculousness someday?
