As you can see from the casting choices and the production value put into making the actors and actresses resemble the Nisekoi anime characters, Japan has gotten really better at bringing these 2D characters to life. Or at least, when the actual original character design works allow them to.
It’s hate at first sight… rather, a knee-to-the-head at first sight when Raku Ichijo meets Chitoge Kirisaki! Unfortunately, Raku’s gangster father arranges a false love match with their rival’s daughter – who just so happens to be Chitoge!
However, Raku’s searching for his childhood sweetheart from ten years ago, with a pendant around his neck as a memento, but he can’t even remember her name or face!
The popular anime series aired two full seasons from January 2014 to April 2015. Nisekoi was based on the original manga by Naoshi Komi which has more than 12 million copies in printed to date in world wide.
I’m sure the millions of fans world wide are looking forward eagerly to see this live action movie of Nisekoi: False Love.
