Nisekoi episode 10 – All girls get equal time

[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 10 [480p].mkv_snapshot_12.45_[2014.03.18_19.37.30]

A lot of people like this show
And while I watch without translation
I fail to see why they bestow
This one worthy of celebration

Take this episode for instance
Before we get into a war of words
The show will never take a stance
On which girl the guy leans towards

[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 10 [480p].mkv_snapshot_04.37_[2014.03.18_19.29.03]It follows the same formula
Each and every single week
It’s all blah blah blah blah blah blah
Don’t choose the bitch or the meek

Give each of them equal screen time
To wave their wares and pout
They get their 10 minutes to shine
So nobody feels left out

Rince and repeat forever
We are only halfway through
Because we know he will never
Choose which girl he plans to do

[HorribleSubs] Nisekoi - 10 [480p].mkv_snapshot_12.07_[2014.03.18_19.36.49]

Cut past the faces and Shaft whack
The perving and all that jazz
To keep anyone coming back
This is the only hook it has

With the manga still ongoing
And 10 episodes still left to air
We know he’ll still be foregoing
Whose virginity he will want to share

I said at the start my duties end in April
So next week’s my last of being poetically hateful

    Well, I don’t know how well both the nadeko and hanekawa arcs in monogatari would work if the series wasn’t a harem, but yeah, outside of that it is not a ‘genre’ well suited to tell a story.

      Monogatari isn’t a harem anime. It’s a supernatural romance anime that happens to have harem in it. At least in my opinion. In harem anime the harem is the main focus of the series. The girls are the main focus individually, not as a harem.

      I have nothing to say about Nisekoi. It’s REALLY generic, but that’s the reason why I love it. Only thing I’m going to miss after this mediocre season is hearing HanaKana.

    How dare you call Nisekoi “shit”! You obviously don’t know a masterpiece if ever you see one.

      Nisekoi is the Love Hina of this generation.

      I hate Love Hina, for the same reasons i hate Nisekoi. But i understand what their appeal is and out of all the crap that gets released every anime season, Nisekoi, just like Love Hina back then. Stands there in the middle.

    I heard it’s getting a second season. You should blog it too

    Also Nisekoi is shift (OK that’s two puns in one. BEAT THAT)

    i do believe that after countless of seasons with generic crap harems, people got tired. Then comes Nisekoi, a manga that is nothing special.

    But Nisekoi’s strongest appeal is not being special, it’s appeal is generic and does it the right way.

    I do not like Nisekoi, but i understand their fans. Season after season we get crappy rom-coms and they never succeed. Then comes Nisekoi, a manga that is there for just one purpose, rom-com. Nothing else, nothing metaphysical, nothing philosophical. Just romance story with a harem and comedic plot twists and some drama here and there.

    And i guess it worked. The animation by Shaft takes the strengths of the series and literally makes the manga come to life. Something many studios fail at.

    Sometimes simplicity and generic is what people want. And that’s ok, the world cannot only be about deep and philosophical journeys of epicness.

    Nisekoi is great at what it does, although what it does is nothing more than simple romantic anime harem comedy, and nothing else should be expected from it.
