posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official website for the anime adaptation of Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi romantic comedy manga began streaming a new promotional video for the series on Tuesday. The video first premiered at Shueisha's Jump Festa 2014 event on Saturday, and features ClariS's "CLICK" opening theme song.
The video features the following dialogue:
- Raku: Maybe it would be better for me to just forget about this irresponsible promise...
- Text: A liar is the beginning of love.
- Chitoge: Sorry! I was in a hurry!
- Chitoge: I hate guys who complain again and again about things that have already happened.
- Raku: This is the first time I've ever met such an infuriating and violent girl in my life! I don't want to live in this kind of world anymore...
- Kosaki: You promised someone, right? Even if that's a child's promise from ten years ago, it might be really important to that person.
- Raku: At that time, I still didn't know that this false love would lead me back to the promise from ten years ago.
Konami also began streaming a promotional video for a Nisekoi version of the smartphone application "Majikore!?," which allows players to interact with the heroines from the anime, change their costumes, and raise them as they please.
The anime revolves around Raku Ichijō (Kouki Uchiyama), a normal high school student who happens to be the heir to a yakuza group. The attractive but violent transfer student Chitoge Kirisaki (Nao Tōyama), the heir to a rival yakuza group, transfers to his class, and the two must pretend to date to keep a war from breaking out between their families.
The series will also star Kana Hanazawa (Kobato., Steins;Gate) as Kosaki Onodera, Mikako Komatsu (Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live, K) as Seishirō Tsugumi, Yumi Uchiyama (Binbogami ga!, The Devil Is a Part-Timer!) as Ruri Miyamoto, Yuuki Kaji (Guilty Crown, Attack on Titan) as Shū Maiko, Takehito Koyasu (Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World, Bakuman.) as Claude, and Kana Asumi (Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) as Marika Tachibana. Akiyuki Shinbo (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari) will direct the anime at animation studio SHAFT.
