Starting 2014 with brand new titles, Aniplex of America Inc. has announced that they will be simulcasting two highly-anticipated shows for this winter anime season: NISEKOI (ニセコイ, 2014) and WORLD CONQUEST ZVEZDA PLOT (世界征服 ～謀略のズヴィズダー～, Sekai Seifuku: Booryaku no Zvezda, 2014). Both titles are set to start streaming in January just hours after its original broadcast in Japan. Both titles will be produced by animation studios that have produced multiple hit anime series including popular Aniplex of America titles. In addition to their streaming plans, Aniplex of America is also planning on a home video release of these titles. Details about the physical releases will be announced at a later date.
From animation studio SHAFT, the studio that brought the world the MONOGATARI SERIES and PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGIKA, comes the new animated series NISEKOI. From the popular manga with the same title, Raku Ichijo is an average high school student who also happens to be the sole heir to the head of a Yakuza Family. Ten years ago, Raku made a secret promise with a girl he met. They promised one another that they will “get married when they reunite.” Since then, Raku never let go of the pendant the girl gave him.
But one day, a beautiful girl named Chitoge Kirisaki transfers into Raku’s class. Raku’s relationship with Chitoge is less than civil as they hate each other’s existence. But, by a weird turn of events, Raku and Chitoge agree to be fake lovers. Although his heart is really interested in his classmate Kosaki Onodera, Raku must continue pretending to be Chitoge’s boyfriend. How far will you go for a love so truly fake? Which girl holds the key to Raku’s pendant and to his heart?
