Nisekoi TV and Blu-ray Comparisons Part 2 [NSFW]

Nisekoi-TV-and-Blu-ray-Comparisons-Part-2-[NSFW]

We are back with another comparison of the TV and Blu-ray releases of Nisekoi. This time we are focusing on episode 9 from the anime, which does feature some NSFW content. Generally, animation studios uncensor content that is not deemed appropriate of Japanese television so that viewers can get the full intended material. We have originally seen how studio Shaft handled a few episodes of the series in our first Nisekoi TV and Blu-ray Comparisons, but how does Shaft handle nsfw content on the blu-ray release of the anime?

Additionally, Shaft has recently released the cover of the Nisekoi fanbook. It is an official illustration from the studio, but it has a striking resemblance to another official illustration. The image seems to be very similar to the 7th blu-ray volume of THE [email protected]. Many of the characters share almost identical poses though at different distances. Shaft has not made an official statement yet, though it is likely to be a harmless homage.

Here is the THE [email protected]‘s illustration, followed by the Nisekoi illustration:

Nisekoi is a manga series that originally started off as a one shot from Naoshi Komi that released in January 2011. Komi then released the manga as a full series later on in the year, when it appeared in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. Since 2011, 12 volumes have been released for the romantic comedy. Additionally a voiced comic has also been published and a light novel series. Viz Manga has also picked up the series late 2013 for English localisation, announcing that the chapters would be translated and released in Viz’s Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha. A anime adaptation of the manga aired from January this year, and ended in May. The anime is produced by studio Shaft (BakemonogatariMahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica).

Here is a plot synopsis of Nisekoi from MAL:

As a child, Raku Ichijo made a secret promise with his childhood sweetheart, keeping a pendant as a memento while his love took the key. He dreams of one day meeting his past love, but years later, reality smashes his hopes when Chitoge Kirisaki accidentally knees him in the face…

Though Raku’s a normal high schooler, his family heads the notorious yakuza gang the Shuei-Gumi faction! And he’s dragged into family affairs when he’s forced into a relationship with Chitoge, the daughter of a rival gang’s boss!
