Nisekoi is a manga series that originally started off as a one shot by 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, 14 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 for a total of 20 episodes. The anime is produced by studio Shaft (Bakemonogatari, Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica). A PlayStation Vita game based on the series is currently in development. A second season of Nisekoi was announced and airs this Spring 2015 anime season.
