Anime News Network's coverage of Anime Expo 2017 is sponsored by Aniplex and Yen Press.
North American publisher Viz Media announced at its Shonen Jump panel at Anime Expo on Saturday that Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi - False Love manga will launch in the free section of the Shonen Jump website in English on July 10.
The publisher previously released the romantic comedy manga as eBooks and as print volumes. Viz Media also published new chapters simultaneously with new chapters in Japan in its digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
Komi drew the original "Nisekoi" one-shot manga in Shueisha's Jump Next! magazine in early 2011, and turned it into a manga series in November of the same year. The manga ended in August 2016.
The series inspired two television anime seasons. The anime's first season premiered in Japan in January 2014 with 20 episodes. The 12-episode second season premiered in Japan in April 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the first series, and Aniplex of America streamed the second series on the Aniplex Channel, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Daisuki services. Aniplex of AMerica released both seasons on home video.
