Nisekoi: False Love Manga Gets Live-Action Film Adaptation

Nisekoi: False Love Manga Gets Live-Action Film AdaptationIt’s been revealed Naoshi Komi’s romantic comedy manga Nisekoi: False Love is getting the live-action film treatment.

The announcement came via an ad in the latest edition of Weekly Shonen Jump, the magazine in which the manga ran from 2011 to 2016.

The film is set for a December 2018 release.

Nisekoi has previously been adapted into a series of novels and an anime series that ran from January to May 2014. A sequel to that series ran the following year.

Viz Media is releasing Nisekoi in English. Here’s how they describe it:

It’s hate at first sight—or 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 between Raku and their rival gang leader’s daughter, who just so happens to be Chitoge! Raku’s searching for his childhood sweetheart from ten years ago, however, with a pendant around his neck as a memento…but he can’t even remember the girl’s name or face!

More details about the live-action adaptation as they’re revealed!
