Yesterday Hisashi Sasaki, the former editor-in-chief of Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine and current deputy director of the Shonen Manga Group revealed on Twitter that the popular, and relatively new, Japanese romantic comedy manga Nisekoi would be joining Viz Media’s Shonen Jump Alpha line-up.
The first English chapter of Nisekoi will be released in two weeks on the digital service. For those who don’t know, Nisekoi follows the story of Raku Ichijou who is the young heir to a yakuza group but tries to live a normal high school life. One day he is introduced to a beautiful but hot tempered and violent girl named Chitoge Kirisaki who transfers into his school and is told that she is actually his fiancée! Can these two manage to get along with one another despite their ill-suited personalities?
