Nisekoi #91 review

Nisekoi #91

OK, so this time our main character, Raku, explores another very overused cliche – he has amnesia. And he’s working to get his memories back. It’s a really basic story temple, but for some reason, this manga is fun to read. Personally, I’m a big fan of Chitoge, and she appeared a lot in this chapter for some reason, so I was satisfied. She’s supposed to be the main heroine, I think, but ever since she became a second year, she hasn’t been appearing very often. I guess if she appeared too much the story might end sooner… that’s the problem with love comedies, isn’t it?

Getting back on subject… even the “punchline” to #91 was pretty cliche. He gets punched by the heroine and gets his memories back. There’s really not much to say here. Honestly, though, I didn’t care about the amnesia at all, since I knew it was just a gimmick put in to let the heroines go wild. The crux to the whole story, after all, is the promise they made ten years ago.

This chapter suggests that Chitoge was not the girl that the main character made the promise with ten years ago. However, this series has a tendency to end chapters on cliffhangers and then completely flip things around when the next chapter begins, so by this point I’ve come to expect that what we’re being told isn’t entirely true.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is, I don’t really care about the story in this manga. I’m reading it for Chitoge. And this week, Chitoge appeared a lot, so I was happy. The next chapter looks like it’s going to be Chitoge’s birthday party, so I’m hoping we’ll see more of her next time. And that’s what’s important to me!
