posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Aniplex began streaming the first promotional video and second commercial on Thursday for Nisekoi:, the second anime season based on Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi - False Love manga. The videos feature the anime's opening theme, "Rally Go Round" by LiSA.
Naoshi Komi's original Nisekoi - False Love manga and the anime revolve 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 14th and 16th manga volumes each bundled an original video anime (OVA) on DVD, and the 17th volume will bundle an OVA as well on April 3. Chief director Akiyuki Shinbo, director Naoyuki Tatsuwa, character designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama, the anime studio SHAFT, and the main cast all returned for the OVAs after working on the television anime. Ayane Sakura and Manami Numakura (The [email protected], Shirobako) are joining the cast as Haru Onodera and Paula McCoy, respectively.
Komi launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2011 and Viz Media is releasing the original manga digitally and in print. Aniplex of America began releasing the television anime series on Blu-ray Disc in November, and Crunchyroll streamed the television anime as it aired in Japan.
