Nisekoi Manga #21 to Bundle Magical Girl & Newlywed Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the Nisekoi television anime announced on Monday that Naoshi Komi's 21st Nisekoi - False Love manga volume will bundle a limited-edition original anime DVD on January 4, 2016. The original anime will adapt more of the "Magical Pâtissier" spinoff manga, as well as Komi's "Shinkon" (Newlywed) manga bonuses.
Half of the original anime DVD will adapt the special bonus "Magical Pâtissier" manga shorts (pictured right) that will be in the 19th, 20th, and 21st volumes. (These shorts have yet to be published, since the 19th manga volume will not ship until August 4.) The shorts feature a new Yui-neechan (Yui Kanakura) character, and the anime's website teases a new magical girl as well.
The other half of the original anime DVD will adapt Komi's "Shinkon" manga bonuses in the fourth volume (Kosaki) and the booklets bundled with the 16th (Marika), 17th (Tsugumi), and 21st (Chitoge) manga volumes. The excerpt pictured left reads, "Dinner is ready. And so is the bath, so which do you want first?"
Chief director Akiyuki Shinbo, character designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama, and the anime studio SHAFT, are all returning for the original anime DVD after working on the television anime. Yukihiro Miyamoto (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Maria Holic, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the chief technical director.
The limited edition bundle for the 21st volume will include the manga volume itself, the anime DVD, a special booklet with Komi's "Shinkon Chitoge" short, one new Nisekoi PR card for the Weiβ Schwarz game, and the Magical Pâtissier Kosaki-chan postcard calendar.
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.
Update: The 21st volume will ship on January 4, not October 26. The deadline to reserve the bundle is October 26.
