Nisekoi Manga Gets New Story Set 10 Years Later



Nisekoi, a series whose TV anime adaptation turns 10 years old next year, will be getting a re-print of its original manga series this year in a brand new bunko format. Alongside the new format, the series will be getting a brand new chapter set 10 years after the events of the main series!









The new versions of Nisekoi will be shrinking down the manga volumes from 25 to 14, plus two more for the novels for a total of 16 volumes for the entire series in just one format. Creator Naoshi Komi will also be drawing new covers for each of the volumes (see above) and will see each volume release around the 18th of the month. The first release on June 18 will see the first two volumes go on sale.

The Nisekoi manga began in Weekly Shonen Jump on November 7, 2011, and ran until August 8, 2016. A TV anime adaptation directed by Naoyuki Tatsuwa and chiefly directed by Akiyuki Shinbo aired for two seasons from January 11, 2014, to June 26, 2015. Crunchyroll streams the series, describing it as such:


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.
