Shueisha’s Comic Bunko label recently unveiled plans for a reprint of Naoshi Komi’s renowned manga, Nisekoi – False Love. This new rendition will feature a fresh bonus epilogue set a decade following the conclusion of the main narrative.
The reissued edition will encompass 16 volumes in the bunko paperback format. Fourteen of these will feature the original manga, while the last two will incorporate the manga’s novelizations. Each volume will also sport fresh cover art, breathing new life into this beloved series. The initial pair of bunko volumes is slated for a release on June 16, followed by subsequent volumes launching on the 18th of every month.
Nisekoi – False Love started as a one-shot manga by Naoshi Komi in Shueisha’s Jump Next! magazine in early 2011. Due to its success, it evolved into a serialized manga in Weekly Shonen Jump by November that year, concluding its run in August 2016. The 25th and final original compiled book volume of the manga, alongside a standalone story titled “Tokidoki”, hit the shelves in October 2016. Both Nisekoi and “Tokidoki” were published in English by Viz Media’s Shonen Jump.
In addition to its success as a manga, Nisekoi – False Love transitioned into the world of television with two anime seasons. The inaugural season aired in Japan in January 2014, comprising 20 episodes, followed by a 12-episode second season in April 2015. International streaming was provided by Crunchyroll for the first season, and Aniplex of America for the second season, through platforms such as the Aniplex Channel, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Daisuki. The series also inspired a live-action film adaptation released in December 2018.
In anticipation of this exciting development, fans of Naoshi Komi’s Nisekoi – False Love can look forward to rediscovering this cherished series in a brand new format, enhanced with new cover art and bonus content.
