Oh look, plot progression.
Seems like the author finally remembered about the key again.
>marika was the key girl
>the raku realize what have he done
Okay it's definitely not Marika because she only had short hair as a kid. But one feature gives it away,
>that left side forehead openness
It's Kosaki. However I'm guessing the ending will be that the promise is get with Chitoge or it was a proposal to Kosaki, but he betrays her and gets with Chitoge.
I'm disappointed the brilliant, SZS-tier theory about the promise girl dying won't be true.
>Marika wasn't actually one of the childhood friends
>the real promised girl was terminal and was in the same hospital as Marika
>promise girl talks to Marika about Raku, Marika falls in love with Raku
>promise girl gives Marika her key and dies
>edgy angsty arc when Marika is able to open the locket and tries to hide the truth as much as possible
You guys obviously know how this will end.
>Raku finally finds the key for his locket
>Opens it, hoping to find something that will show him the identity of the childhood friend he still can't fucking remember
>There's another key inside
>Two girls come up to him, yelling something about a marriage proposal
>They are both wearing lockets
Get ready for Nieskoi Shippuden.
Oh that be such a great plot twist...
>get worst, raku is actually terminally ill and dies shortly after the locket is opened and Marika tells the truth to raku. Disappointed, he dies right there looking at Marika with sadness, anger and confusion while dieing.
I just want a real fucked up but sad ending to this ride
That's a very small Chitoge in that panel. Or the vending machine and drinks are all quite large.
The manga hasn't put effort into a lot of things, great artwork on the characters themselves though, I don't blame background guy for slipping interest in this train wreck conclusion.
It forcefully needs to have that width x height ratio?
The shitty tsundere wins. Worst girl ALWAYS wins in haremshit. Just fucking get it over with Komi.
