Nisekoi Screening Episodes 1-2
The story follows the life of an average high school student, Raku Ichijo, who is the heir to a Yakuza family and Chitoge Kirisaki, the daughter of the rival gang leader. Up to this point, the story may allude to a famous Shakespearean play, but Raku and Chitoge are far from the star-crossed lovers. Without their prior consent, their families force Raku and Chitoge to become fake lovers in order to bring peace between the two rival families. Much hilarity ensues when Raku and Chitoge, who are both amateurs when it comes to relationships with the opposite sex, are made to uphold this fake relationship through any means in front of their school peers.
